Group photos from George Washington Burris Sr family (Pope Co., AR)

Posted: 21 Mar 2009 4:21PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Burris, Crites
George Washington Burris, Sr. was the son of James Littleton and Elizabeth Adeline (Ashmore) Burris.

I have attached five group photos and have listed names found on the backs of the photos. I thought there might be other Burrises who would like copies of the photos. There is no claim to copyright to any of these photos, so if you want a copy, just right click and save.

Photo #1
This photo was taken at 500 Glenwood, in Russellville (Pope Co.) AR about 1920/1921.

Front row, left to right
Walter Homer Burris, 1887-1974
Ernest Arthur Burris, 1880-1952
Ottis Gileston Burris, 1893-1979

George Washington Burris, Jr., 1890-1974
Dora Emma (Burris) Crites, 1885-1982

Photo #2
This is an undated photo of four Burris men. I am guessing the date would be prior to 1910.

Left to right
Elbert R Burris, 1887-1978
George Washington Burris, Jr., 1890-1974
Walter Homer Burris, 1887-1974
Earl Burris, 1902-?

Elbert and Earl were brothers, sons of Jefferson William and Margaret Malinda (Wharton) Burris, and George and Homer were brothers, sons of George Washington (Sr) and Mary Mathilda (Wharton) Burris. My family calls those relationships “double cousins.”

This is an undated photo of two men seated and three women standing behind them.
