GOLDEN GLORIES
How Mr. & Mrs. Washington Burns Celebrated

-------------
The grandest event that ever occurred in Hawcreek township, Bartholomew county, the fiftieth anniversary of the married life of Mr. & Mrs. Washington Burns. At 9 o'clock a.m., the guests began to arrive. Carriage after carriage came laden with the old pioneers, their sons and daughters, all intent on honoring the aged couple, at whose residence they were assembling for a day of recreation, amusement and enjoyment. Noon found about five hundred guests assembled to pay their respects to Mr. & Mrs. Burns. Among those present I saw Mr. Thomas Essex, I. A. Vogler and Mrs. Fannie Hauser, of Columbus; Mr. Ben Jones and lady and David Lancaster, of Shelbyville; Mr. John Nading and lady, Mrs. Matilda Walker and John Walker of Flatrock Station; Mr. Thomas Smiley and lady, of Rockcreek township; W.

I have only mentioned some of the oldest in attendance.

A bountiful repast was spread. Mr. Burns had prepared a whole beef, sixty loaves of bread, and turkeys and chickens without number, and an immense number of cakes, pies, potatoes, and all the other delicacies of the seasons. Mr. J. Schaub, of Hope photographed the assembled multitude, at the conclusion of which a table- one hundred and twenty-three feet long was filled with guests ready to discuss the rich viands.
We must not omit to mention the Hope Coronet Band, and were composed of the following persons: George Hartsell, leader, E. T. Potter, George Kemp, Julius Fishel, M. Hartsell, Charles Hartsell, Charles Cook, Irving Rominger, William Styers, Willie Hartsell, Leona Snyder and George Burns. Mr. Burns was the recipient of the following presents: A gold headed cane with the name of Mr. Burns engraved thereon, as well as the doner, Mr. John Nading, five dollars in gold by L. A. Vogler; one dollar in gold by William & Eliza Powell, who have been married 31 years; three dollars in gold by Adam & Eliza Fishel, married 27 years; Mr. Fishel is 61 years old and Mrs. Fishel is 66 years old; ; one dollar in gold by Ben Jones and lady; one dollar in gold by Joseph Holder; two dollars and fifty cents in gold by Thomas Powell; one dollar in gold by Lewis Essex and wife, married 45 years, Mr. Essex is about 67 and Mrs. Essex is 68; two dollars in gold by Solomon Lambert, aged 62; one dollar in gold by L. J. Rominger and lady, married 40 years.
One pair of gold rimmed spectacles by the following named persons: George Fry, Charles Brunner, George Haas, C. B. Woehler, Charles Beitrick, J. A. Miller, Charles Neighley, Dr. J. K. Righter, Christian Baner, Will Marlin, E. A. Jones, Adam Fox, Lewis Dillman and Dr. Stapp; one dollar in silver by George Burns and lady; one silver watch by W. H. Conner and wife.

Mrs. Sarah Burns was the recipient of the following presents: One pair of gold rimmed spectacles by the following persons, jointly: Mrs. Clara Schaub, Dr. S. Stapp, Mrs. Lucinda Glidewell, Robert Jones, B. A. Lewis, Hetty Marlin, Sophia Kurtz, Rebecca Rominger and Malinda Essex; one gold ring by Mrs. Rose Vogler, Mrs. Fanny Hauser, Miss Sarah Bauchman and Mr. Mathias Nauman; one dollar in gold by Elizabeth Powell; one dollar in gold by Mrs. Ben Jones; two dollars and fifty cents in gold by Thomas Smiley; one dollar in silver by Mrs. Camilla Maze; one dollar in silver by George Burns and wife; one shilling in silver by W. H. Conner and wife. There were present Thomas Moore, married 36 years; Mr. J. T. Higgins, 75 years old. The oldest persons present was Isaiah Carter and Joseph Holder. Mr. Burns will be seventy-five years old next January; came from Harrison county, Kentucky in the fall of the year 1820 and landed at Spring Hill, in what is now Decatur county, and slept in a shanty on a sheep skin during the winter among the wild beasts then common all over Indiana. When moving from Kentucky Mr. Burns' father hired a gentleman to move his household goods to this State, which he did on horseback, the rickety vehicle having broken down the second day out. Mr. Burns' father, mother, brothers and sisters footing it all the way from Kentucky to Indiana. Mrs. Burns is now in her 70th year; born in Clarke county, Indiana, whose father settled there among the Indians, and therefore Mrs. Burns knows about the hardships of pioneer life in Indiana. Mr. Washington Burns and Mrs. Sarah Walker were united in marriage in Shelby county, Indiana, this State. The ceremony was performed by Samuel Drake, November 5, 1829. Together they have moved on through these fifty years, settling down in the primeval forest soon after their marriage on the present homestead.

A Tribute to William Emry Burnes

My Grandfather, William Emry Burnes was an incredible man! A World War I Navy Hero, The city Sheriff,  a Free Mason, a violinist, a successful Business Owner, a Deep Sea Fisherman, an Honest man, Hard working & intelligent.

He was a young man who had carried the heavy load of his family through the death of his father during the time of the Great Depression.  He was the oldest of 8 children, and without hesitation,  he took on the responsibility to support his mother, brothers and sisters and their spouses through the painful years of the depression.  A second cousin confirmed this, stating “he even made sure his sisters and sister in laws had beautiful hats and shoes to wear.” At the age of 37, when all of his siblings were able to make it on their own, he married his first wife, Kathryn Fleig. The short marriage of 3 years ended when he noted in the divorce papers that he stayed faithful for the space of 3 years awaiting her return. The papers also stated this small but very important detail "no children were born to this marriage". For unknown reasons, she had left him and never came back. Heartbroken by this tragedy he removed himself from the "normal" way life should be, and focused on living an honest life as the local town Sheriff and Business Owner. It was eleven years later that he would meet Ruth Imogene Adams in Batavia, Iowa. He was 49 years old, she was 18, the perfect match separated by 31 years. They married a few months later and set off to start their lives far from home; in Napa, California. They had two children together, one son (my father) and a baby girl who died just a few hours after she was born. They lived a happy life together for 12 years, until his death in 1956. This was not the typical story for most of your grandparents, but this was mine, and one that I am very proud of.


The passion I have for doing genealogy is very personal to me. It defines the line between the truth and the unknown. It gives me hope, it gives me knowledge, but mostly it gives me the opportunity to link our ancestors together as one family. We live in a day in age, where we can learn the truth of our ancestors from many genealogical websites like;
Ancestry, Family Search, Findagrave, USGenweb, Google and so many more. My newly discovered lineage has impacted the way I view myself and every living and non living person. I know our loved ones who have passed on, are still here, just unseen to our earthly eyes. We can feel them close when we are in tune to them. We all have ancestors cheering for us, helping us daily, and strengthening us as we bear the burdens of this life. They have paved that rocky road so we can pay it back to them by keeping them alive, in us, and staying true to our family name and heritage.

The Power of Facebook. Guess Who I found?

Facebook isn't just for Social Networking! In fact, this powerful platform with more than 900 million users has helped me to connect with many people, including distant cousins. Yes, Facebook is awesome for more than one reason!!

As I began on my family history adventure, I was learning more about my heritage than I could ever imagine. After only one year of extensive research, I traced my lineage back 7 generations, which was quite the conquest, considering that I didn't know my paternal grandfather (father's, father), or anything about him. After discovering that my Great, Great, Great Grandparents, George Washington Burnes & Sarah Walker Burnes had settled in Hope, Indiana I was anxious to get out there. So, I booked a flight to Indianapolis, Indiana and left on May 18, 2007. After a successful trip of meeting family and transcribing headstones, my knowledge of my heritage had increased, and I felt closer to my ancestors.


Many of siblings have joined Facebook, but a few have not embraced the Facebook phenomenon. So I did a search for my brother JAMES BURNES, and the first person to show up was someone who resembled my brother, with the same name and spelling, but lived over 2,000 miles away; in Indianapolis, Indiana. The city he lived in was a clue that we could be related, so I wrote him a message and guess what I found out?

Here's the screenshot from our first conversation on Facebook:


As you can see, from our conversation above, we discovered we are 5th cousins, which means we share the same Great, Great, Great Grandfather; George Washington Burnes. From our connection, we have acquired many photographs and details about our ancestors that we never knew existed. More importantly, we have "CONNECTED THE DOTS" and our family continues to grow.

Give it a try!!
Start searching for distant cousins on Facebook!!

Original Fishing License of William & Ruth Burnes

I found a TREASURE!! In my home, I have my grandpa's old tackle box with old hooks, bobbins and weights, but I had no idea there was something more valuable inside; their original fishing license. This very small piece of paper that was folded inside a 1"x 2" fishing tag contained more information than I could imagine. I had no idea my grandpa was only 5'7"; crazy! Here's the copy of the original fishing license and tags:

The only picture I have of George Washington & Sarah Burnes at their 50th Wedding Anniversary, November of 1879. This Grand Event took place at their home in Hope, Indiana.

George Washington & Sarah Burnes 50th Wedding Anniversary Article; click here

The home of GW & Sarah Burnes built around 1836 in Hope, Indiana. Their home is still standing. I had the opportunity to visit this home and walk through it. It was amazing to me how detailed the wood work was for those days of only having simple hand tools. They raised their 13 children in this small 4 room home. It only had a kitchen and family room on the main level, and 2 bedrooms upstairs. Crazy!
