I have recently found some information on James S. Burris. His father was Martin Burris (of Missouri) and Penia Ann Moore (of Iowa). they had 10 children. James S. Burris, Sarah Jane Burris (never married), N.L. Burris (married D.M. Rankins), E.A. (Ema) Burris (married M.A. Holloway of Collingsworth County, Texas, J.H. Burris of Montague County, Texas, E.V. (Ettie) Burris (married O.E. Capehart of Jefferson County, Oklahoma, Lillie May Burris (married J.E. Holloway) of Collingsworth County, Texas, Elizabeth Burris (usually referred to as Lizzie) died at age 16, Buddie Burris died at age 2. Mary E. Burris, and John Burris born October of 1888. The 1880 Census for Montague County, Texas list them as Borroughs. Martin and Penia both died in Montague County, Texas.

does anyone have any more information on these people.
