Thrift Family Genealogy Forum
I just read your message regarding Rachel Hart Thrift & DR. Timothy Burr on the Thrift Family Genealogy Forum. My grandfather was Wilmer Gorman Burr and he was a fisherman who spoke often of Burrs Ferry. He was a wonderful man and I have many fond memories of him and visiting his country home near Merryville, La. I have an uncle who is a Pentecostal preacher, Rev. Murray Burr, formerly of Port Arthur, Tx.
I also have photos of Rachel Hart Thrift and Dr. Timothy Burr and have visited the Burr cemetery with my Uncle Eli Burr. My Mom was Caddie Ruth Burr and she is buried in the Merryville cemetery (Sept. 99). It would be great to exchange info. and photos with you and get to know more of the "family".
