Hi Adam -- My great-grandfather's name was George William McBurney. I am not sure of his birthday, but it is about Aug 1858 (based on a brith certificate for a daughter). I think that he was married to Frances Bale (?),and then married Nancy Margaret Clawson of Sullivan, MO. But I can't find out what happened to Frances or if they had any children.
He married Nancy M. Clawson on March 30, 1884 in Galt, MO. One of the witnesses was Margaret McBurney. The children of George and Nancy were: Anna E. (b. 1885), Alva C., (b. 1888), George Wallace (b. 1892; d. 1933 in FL); James William -- my grandfather -- (b.1895 or 96; d.1972 or 72); and Arthur Loughlen (sp.), (b. 1898; d. 1963 in CA).
