"Bursheba Leighton Fristoe Younger" was the daughter of Judge Richard Marshall Fristoe and Mary Leighton Sullivan. Born on the 6th day of June 1816 she was married to Henry Washington Younger in 1830 and became the mother of 14 children with only 13 living into adulthood. She loved the smell of spring lilac outside her home and having her family all around her.

After the assassination of her husband by federal troops in July of 1862, Bursheba was burned out of her family home in Cass County, Missouri, February of 1863 per the movement of Order #11. Later that summer three of her daughters were imprisoned in Kansas City, Missouri with the subsequent collapse of the building they were being held in. This causing the death of several females, two of which were her own nieces and the permanent injury to her own three daughters. She was driven to her bed from all the stress and besieged with reoccurring nightmares of her daughters screams for help.

Bursheba's one true love in life was her family. She was a devoted and loving mother and wife. She passed October of 1870, but will never be gone from the hearts of those that will forever love her for all she has done.
