My grandmother, Bess Sproules, born 1903 died 2000, was engaged in 1924 or 1925 to Judge Burton, They had rented an apt and were ready to get married when my grandmother broke it off. From the stories I remember he was devastated and so was my grandmother's father, Newton Sproules, who was a big buddy to Clyde. Also the owner of Milward's funeral home in Lexington was a good friend of Clyde Burton. My Mom. who is 86, was just talking about this yesterday, she wanted to see if I could locate his obit. She remembers that he walked out into the woods, away from the hospital, and cut his wrists. If your Aunt is still living, my Mom would be willing to talk to her. She has a ring, that he gave my grandmother and refused to take back from her.Sorry if this info comes too late.
