I am looking for information for John and Finis Burns who settled around Fort Morgan between 1885 and 1888 (census records determine date). John W. had a land patent with land north and west of Fort Morgan (land patent description)
They had several children: Jessie George ( married Mayme Wallace of Denver,) Robert E. , Laura Izetta, Susie, E and Howard O. ( 1900 census). Robert possibly lived in Denver.
Howard O. was possibly a lawyer, worked for government.
1930 census shows Finis widow with son Arch, single.
Oral history states Arch was a cowboy and never married.
Another daughter may be part of the family possibly Midge, married unknown Patton and lived at Fort Morgan with several children. A daughter married Schultz (or similar) and lived at Carl Junction.
Any connections with this family or information would be fantastic.
