      Darlene Duncan:

      Mammie (Sullivan) & Edward J. Burke's son James J. Burke's wife was named Louise. When I was a teenager we went on a trip to Birmingham, Alabama.
      James owned a Buick Car Dealership there. My Grandmother Mary (Leahy) Duncan purchased at least one car from him while she was living in Huntsville,
      Alabama. That was in the early 70's. James had a motor boat and we went out on a big lake, it was fun. They also had 2 big dogs, one was a (standard
      size?) black poodle. And they had a piano that was white with gold painted trim. Their house was down a long driveway, on a hill, with a guest house
      built separate from the main house. At night there was a view of the lights of Birmingham City. James Burke did well for himself. I do not know when
      James died. And I am not sure where he last lived, could have been Florida. [9]
