  • "Shortly after the Burel family's arrival in South Carolina, Louis Burel, the oldest son, married Sarah Margaret Jenkins, born about 1800, and the daughter of Deborah Elizabeth Darby and Randel Randolph Jenkins, another landowner and resident of Goshen Hill. ... Louis/Lewis Burel died in January 1872, and Sarah Jenkins Burel died in 1895."
    --  Janice Tracy, Mississippi Memories,

    "The Lewis Burel farm at Hog Mountain encompassed the site of a former frontier fort that was rebuilt in 1813 as, Fort Daniel. A Burel descendent, now in his 90's, visited our archaeological excavations at the site and told told us about ploing the hill top by mule as his "grandpappy" had done."

    In March 2015, I added links to Louis' memorial on Find a Grave for his wife and parents' new memorials I had placed on Find a Grave.  This added the links for his siblings for whom a memorial also existed.
