Son of William "Bill" Henry Burris and Jane Deborah Garner

Eagle Rock News: Thursday, Ara, son of Bill Burris, left home to go to Marion Goodings to see about getting a cane mill to make molasses. On his way there, or back, he got hurt and was found late in the evening by Jake Burris. The boy was almost lifeless and could not tell how he was hurt but died a few moments later, after his father and mother were summoned. Investigation proved that he had climbed a hickory tree and a limb had broken with him letting him fall a distance of about 40 feet striking on a solid rock. He was interred Friday evening at the Munsey Cemetery. Thursday, Sep. 28, 1899, Cassville Republican
