Birth: Jul. 9, 1891
Massac County
Illinois, USA
Death: Mar., 1965, USA

Fred William Burris was born in Hillerman, Massac Co., IL on July 9, 1891 to James Andrew Burris and Lydia Ann Denton. He married Maude Lee Greene (daughter of George R. Greene and Amanda Elizabeth Redman) in 1917 in Benton Co., TN. Fred died March 1965 and is buried in Fielding Cemetery, Limestone County, AL near his son, James.

They had 4 children as follows:
1) Gilbert Hagan Burris (Born Nov. 21, 1916)
Gilbert married T. Maxine Pierce, Elaine Johnson (LIVING) with which he had at least four children (Jack, Sandra, Jeanne and Arthur) and Pearlie Florence Coleman Burris, with which he had one child: Anna Jane Burris (LIVING). Anna Jane Burris married James Larry Springer and have one child.
NOTE: according to George in an email in 2010 he states that Anna Jane Burris Springer has another half-sister as follows: Mother named Betty Bennett (the girl's name is Barbara Bennett, she is probably older then Anna, she lived here in Saginaw Mi. Betty & Gilbert never married per George (his brother)

2) James Herbert Burris (See Find a grave # ) (Born Sept. 7, 1920). James married Artie Atkins and had 3 children: Faye, Brenda & Bonnie

3) Clyde Frederick Burris married Oakley Atkins and had four children: Ronald, David, Sally and Kathy

4) George Edwin Burris b. 1922 (LIVING) married Lorraine Pace in 1946 and had two children: Rebecca and Teddy

Fred & Maude Lee Greene Burris got a divorce (per son George) and Maude remarried a Moore and then a Lockwood.
A) Roslene born about 1924. She married Billy Ray per George's email March 2010.

This is not my line but I have done a little research for Anna Jane Burris Springer which has Cerebral Palsy and has been confined to a wheelchair throughout her life. One of my great accomplishments was finding her living half siblings and her living uncle and helping her get in touch with them. She has met one of her half-brothers and it was a great joy for her that she'll never forget.
