  • Notes 
    • Charles Washington Burke The Iowa 1925 Census has a lot of valuable information. When downloading be sure to get all 3 pages, Ancestry.com only shows the first Page and you have to page through the census. 1925 owned their home free and clear, value 3500.00 carried insurance for home at 700.00 A hand written notation in the margin indicates they were located on N. 11th St. the house number is listed as 1031. Located in Cedar Rapids, Linn Co. Iowa The census lists the parents and ages at last birthday of all people on the census. The age of Charles is listed as 48 and Cordelia as 46. Charles Burke’s father is Isiah Burke (census takers misspelling of Isaiah) birthplace Virginia, no age for last birthday which indicates he is no longer living or the interviewee didn’t know. His mother is Ellen Harris, (it’s wonderful that they indicate the maiden name), birthplace Virginia, also no age for last birthday. Cordelia Burke’s father is Sylvester McConnell, birthplace Virginia, and 67 on his last birthday. Her mother is Rosanna Wampler, birthplace Virginia, and 65 on her last birthday. Cordelia indicates a city in the state she was born as Wayland, Virginia. Though her death certificate indicates she was born in Gate City, Va. And I can’t find a town or city call Wayland in Virginia. Two other people are living at home at the time of this census; Earnest R. Burke, son, age 21, Birthplace Virginia. , Lora E. Burke, daughter, age 18, birthplace Kentucky. Cordelia and Lora indicated they were Presbyterian, Charles and Earnest had no Church affiliation. Cordelia checked the occupation box “Are you engaged in domestic and personal service” as most wives did also. Charles checked the occupation box “Are you engaged in trade and transportation” Earnest checked the occupation box “Are you a laborer unclassified” Lora checked none of the occupation boxes Cordelia and Charles went to a rural school and complete what was called the 4th reader. Lora went to grade school and completed 7th grade Earnest went to high school and completed 12th grade Information from Tom Rainson (grandson): Charles died in Iowa. The story goes that he had a stroke while working at his job as a railroad conductor. He finished his shift and then died at the end of the day. That burial took place in or near Cedar Rapids.
