I have no oral history on my BURGESS family and have never found a Burgess family member in my 5 year genealogy search; including multiple trips to Yazoo City, Louise, Midnight and Belzoni. The only info I have is my grandmother had a brother, McKinley Burgess, that worked on the O.C. Box estate in Midnight. He died in 1971 and on the death certificate is the name of "MINNIE BURGESS." This may have been his daughter. Does anyone know of a Minnie Burgess that lived in that area. McKinley had a brother named GEORGE BURGESS and he worked in Isola, Mississippi for Bellgrade Lumber. The family is Afro American.
