I can start with my father Preston Scott Burrows, only child of Walter Preston Burrow and Samantha Theodosia Stanfield.
Walter is of Phillip Jackson Burrow (b. 1859, d. 1916 in Sipe Springs, TX) and Laura Ann Carpenter(b.1861 d. 1929) With children Walter (b. 1881 in AR), Grace (b. 1884 AR), Sidney (b. 1886 in TX), Jeff (b. 1890 in TX), John (b. 1893 in TX) & Ila (b. 1897 in TX). I have found no records past 1900 for any of them.
There is a "W.H. Burrow" with a son "Philip", but he is "Issac Philip", not mine. P.J. was a physician, listed in the Directory of Deceased American Physicians.
My father specifically told me Rube Burrow was an uncle but I can't find the connection. I did find a note referencing James Buchanan Burrow, who was supposed to have died in the Little Rock, AR prison in 1888, whose coffin was empty when exhumed and believed to have run to Texas.
Walter & Grace were born in AR, the other children in TX. I haven't found records for J.B.'s wife Martha or P.J.'s wife Laura. There are no records found - so far - for Phillip, Laura, Walter or the others beyond 1900. James B. would definitely make Rube my father's gr. uncle!
Too far fetched?
Would greatly appreciate any help with this one!!!
