From 1909 to 1918 my three times great grandmother Diniah Burke aka Mother Burke lived in at least four different sections in Mobile, Alabama. According to the directory she worked as a laundress as well as a cook, I was able to track her and her son Bryant who often lived with her or in a few houses down via the Mobile County Directories. Next time I go to Mobile I’ll be sure to visit these areas.
