Birth: Jul. 6, 1861
Virginia, USA
Death: Jan. 23, 1931
Memphis
Shelby County
Tennessee, USA

Rachel Levisa Lyon-Burton married William Perry Burton 6 Apr 1879 in Obion, TN Her death certificate lists her parents as W. Lyon of VA and Virginia L. of VA. Of this union there were 9 children, they are Ocie (O.B.), Mary D. (Molly), Ida Mae, Ona (Onie), Harry Hartry Sr., Lemmie, Robert L., Lennie Lou, and Laura.

Mrs. Rachel Levisa Burton died at the Methodist hospital in Memphis, Friday, January 23, 1931. She was born July 6, 1861. She was married to William P. Burton in May 1878.
Mrs. Burton in her early life united with the Baptist church, but in 1881, she obeyed the gospel under the teachings of the late Bro. John R. Williams and from that time until her death she lived a consistent Christian life. For many years she has been a studious reader of the Gospel Advocate.
Mrs. Burton was a kind indulgent wife, a devoted mother, and a good neighbor. She was the mother of twelve children, four of which had preceded the mother to their reward.
She leaves to mourn, besides her husband, a host of friends and relatives, but we all console ourselves with that Blessed Assurance that when her unfettered soul wings its way to that Great White Throne to receive judgment for the deeds done while here in the body, it will hear the welcome applaudit: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant".
