Hi Darryl, I was pleased to hear back from you and learn that you knew of this family!
I don't have many details, but I can tell you that Paul Morrison Burd (1925-1986) lived as a teen in Chattanooga TN and went to high school at City High with my mother, Mary Frances Myrick.She met and married my dad, Robert E. Lee, in 1947 at The University of Chattanooga, and they had 6 children. They divorced about 1962 and Mom married Paul around 1969. He attended the Medical College of Virginia and became a well-respected physician.
He and his first wife (I think her name was Janice) could not have children for reasons unknown to me and they adopted two boys, Glenn and Jimmy. I got to know them as a teen, but have since lost touch with them.
More for the sake of curiosity since this isn't my lineage, I would like to see the Burd line you have back to 1750. Thanks for being willing to share. Lorien Gunsallus
