Many of you may not be aware that John Burris has been verified by DAR
as having served in Rev.War, French & Indian
wars ,and I have reference to Daniel Boone in
the Genealogical archives at Salt Lake City,
I have since lost my notes on this ref. but it was
instructions to read from a book on the boone
family history. I had loaned notes to the late
Howard Burris of Beaumont,Tx and he passed away
before they were returned. If anyone knows the
location of these notes, I would appreciate having at
least copies as the footnotes have meaning that only
I can decipher.

Ray, Did the John Burris you are referring to, have a descendant named Stinson? Stinson was one of the founders of Matamoras, OH. There are some newspaper articles that refer to John

Stinson Burris

I don't recall seeing a Stinson Listed but that does not mean he is not connected
it would be interesting to see those articles.
I checked the index in this Burris book and there is no mention of Stinson there, but of course I find names
through out the books contents that fail to show up in index.

Hi Ray,
Long time, no post. Do you have the DAR for John if so can you mail me a copy? If not then can you tell me how to go about finding it. Also, the Daniel Boone connection is thru Rebeckah's marriage to Robert Sumner.That trail is very well documented. If you need a couple of sites with that, I'll look them up and email them. One other thing, I have many documents that date back but can't find John's birth in Virginia do you have any of that information.
Take Care,
PS Hows that Grandbaby?

My 1st cousin David and (Father)Uncle
David Paul Burris are members of SAR
(Sons Of the American Rev.)They have
been after me to join for some time now,
seems I never have the money or time
together to do it.I have copies of their Apps.
to guide me thru the process. David wears
the Badge for having ancestors in the French
& Indian War (very Rare)on his Uniform at meetings.
He would be the one to contact for all the documentation.
His email is, he is a real historian
on this period and once you get him started
he is like a talking book.

Is that membership in SAR thru our original John Burris? I can already join DAR (if I can so desire and document) thru another ancestor (another family branch on my mother's side of the family). . .but it would be rather interesting to hear more from you on this. Based on this other rev. war ancestor, I've sent away for a DAR membership application and etc. (and also the last app. on file for someone applying for membership thru same ancestor), as well as a subscription to the DAR Magazine. It's been a few weeks to a month at least - but I haven't received anything from them yet.

Yes to the question " Was that membership thru our
John Burris " B.1738. I think both David Burris (David Burris) and his father
(my uncle) Paul Burris are members. I think it
would be best to get the details from David,
Just tell him I said he was most helpful in
the proceedures to get app. filed.
