The Judge's name was Alexander Burr.
He was born at Pitrodie, Perthshire in 1871.
His father, also Alexander was a minister of religion, who married Mary MacLachlan at Belfast, Northern Ireland on 11 November 1868. The family apparently went from Scotland to Trinidad, before going to Ontario and then on to North Dakota in about 1883.
I haven't been able to find out who Alexander's (Snr) parents were. I would dearly love to know as I think he had come from Aberdeen (which is where my Burr family originated).
