Burnside Yoakum

  • Birth 27 May 1866 Tennessee, USA
  • Death 18 Nov 1889 Claiborne County, Tennessee, USA
  • Burial Lone Mountain, Claiborne County, Tennessee, USA
  • Memorial ID 52129898

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.
