John Burney Murder
Posted by: shirley (ID *****5650) Date: May 29, 2003 at 09:19:48

According to a letter I have from 1869 (copy), John Burney, son of William Burney Sr., of the Ouachita 1797-1811, was murdered at some point in the early 1800's. According to the letter he was eating supper, when one of his slaves shot him through the window. The letter also claims Burney was a prominent farmer, who lived along the Red River near Alexandria, and served as a State Legislator??? Any information on John Burney, and/or his murder, and the man who was convicted of killing him, will be helpful.
