Wow, how did you do that? You did find him and I'm so excited! I've learned since I posted that Burie had two sisters, Trudia and Hester, and a brother Preston. All of which match to the records you found. Thank you so much, this has been such a block wall and I was getting no where fast. I sent for his SS records a while back but they haven't even cashed the check yet so no telling when I will get that.
Thank you! I can't wait to put the info on Ancestry and let the family know.
