My maiden was Burris. My father's family is from Adair Co., KY. He believes that my grandfather, Claud Burris was born in Milltown, KY near Columbia. He was born in 1907 and his father abandoned the family when he was a young boy. My father does not know his grandfather's first name. However, his grandmother was Mary Jane. On her tombstone her last name is misspelled -- Buris. She died about 1939 and is buried in the cemetary across from Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia. If you have any information on this branch of the Burris family, including my great-grandfather's name please write to me.
