Re: George BURMOOD 1800 - 1878
I actually have the an original of the photo you mention and yes Lewis was fer sure my Grand Daddy. My father was Jay Burmood and he is also buried in the Wood River cemetary.
What a nice piece of info you sent...
Makes us some kinda cousins I suppose.
Tom was a nickname for Howard Miller, as you suggest, as I said he played in an area band for a time. You might enjoy this:
His wife Avis, my Aunt, at one point, somewhere around the 30's worked for 1 whole year in a furniture store for no pay in order to pay for a particular dining room set and buffet with overhanging mirror that she fancied. Guess what I have it and have had it restored professionally and it sits in mine dining room today. We enjoy it of course, but when I think about working 1 year for a dining room set.... Well, who would do it Today?
Thanks for you note
