Burnside Yoakum
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: May 27, 1866
Tennessee, USA
Death: Nov. 18, 1889
Claiborne County
Tennessee, USA

Burn died while awaiting trial for the murder of James M. Smith, who is buried in Gose Cemetery. No impartial jury could be seated, and public sentiment moved away from Smith, so Burn was never tried.

Burn married Mollie E. Payne and had one daughter when he died, Eva, who married Marshall Owen Currier.
