Burn Gore

I'm searching for information on Burn Gore (Born 7-15-1901 in Marquette Michigan). Burn is the son of Wilmer Gore and Nettie McManus. Michigan birth records 1867-1902 lists him as Burr Gore. The U.S. Census for 1910 lists him as Burn Gore. Burn (Burr) Gore has a brother Patrick and his last name was changed to McManus. Patrick (Gore) McManus lived in Muskegon Michigan, died and was buried there in 1950.

The U.S. City Directories 1821-1989 lists a Burr McManus with a Muskegon Michigan residence.

I would appreciate any information anyone can provide. My name is Harold Lee Gore, Burn and Patrick are my paternal uncles.

STORY ABOUT BURN GORE:
Born: July 15, 1901

When I was a teenager, about 60 years ago my Dad told me that a member of his family (brother or possibly an uncle) was killed by lighting. He went to bring the cows to the barn and took cover under a tree. The tree was struck by lighting and he was killed along with several cows.

I didn’t ask any questions or pursue the story any further, but I never forgot it. My interest in Genology and efforts to gather information on the history of the Gore family causes me to regret not questioning my Dad further on this, and other events in his life, before he passed away.

My Dad had a brother (Burn Gore) that I was last able to locate in the 1910 U.S. Census when he was 9 years old (Born 1901). His mother (my Grandmother) died in 1906 of cancer. The 1910 Census lists his father Wilmer, brother Glen (my Dad) sister Rhea, and a housekeeper Age Webber, Burn’s father (my Grandfather) died of a stroke in 1914, Burn Gore would have been thirteen years old. My father never mentioned the name Burn. Did he die in the lighting strike or from some other causes, or was he adopted?
