My greatgrand fathers cousin was Tommy Burns. My greatgrand fathers name was Emil Joseph Weber, his parents names were Joseph Weber and Katharine (Katharina) Weber (ne: Ritter).
My family has done extensive research into our family history but have not been able to find any records of Tommy's birth; however, we believe he was born near Hanover, Ontario in 1881.
I'm not sure why he changed his name for boxing.
