When did George Albert Burtner, the son of George W. Burtner and Mary A. Swartzlander (and great grandson of Alexander NEGLEY), die? His wife is listed as a widow in the 1920 census, but at least one electronic source says he did not die until 1950. Where is he buried? Floyd Rollin Negley merely says that he is buried in Western PA, but nothing more specific.
