I tried to drop a "little" hint in my previous post, it would make it soooo much easier if you would include information in your posts.I had to go look at your message history again, to see what you had on a feller named Valentine Burris.

By looking at your response to another post, I see some of the Burris are in OK.So, gave up on TX.

Do you know where they went next?Do you know when and where Valentine died?A copy of his death certificate should show the names of his parents.
