CC Burgess....my grand dad

Classification: Query
My Mom was Ruth Lucille Burgess the youngest of CC's seven children.
Following G-dad's death in 1949 our family (OD Landing's) move to 433 Summit Dr which was located on the last four acres of CC's 'Dixie Diary' estate. My brother and first cousin would play among the remaining buildings of the old dairy.

Grand dad built this two bed room home as a forgiveness gesture for his oldest daughter Cordelia (Burgess) Kelly who had eloped and left the area with her then husband. Cordelia later lived in Greensboro and had the WFMY-TV/NC show "What's Cooking Today" during the 50's & 60's.
My sister currently lives in Asheville and I believe has most of the family photo albums.

I do not know much about CC's family as it was not passed along to us?

Cheers
William Landing
