    • Richard Burke came from Ireland to Canada as a laborer and became a farmer in Picton Ontario, Canada. He farmed 5 acres on Hurricane Hill on Talbot Road in Picton. This was Park Lot #9 as indicated on Tremaines Map of Picton. This area was also known as Hallowell Township. Richard is buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. His daughter-in-law, Rose Burke, had many letters and business papers of Richard Burke that he originated in Ireland. His handwriting was quite beautiful, because Richard Burke had to do most of the writing and business transactions for his village in Ireland. His will is recorded in Picton, and he is listed in the censuses for 1861 and 1871 of Picton.
