My paternal grandmother, Grace Floretta Martin (22 May 1889, Richland Twp, Darke Co OH - 4 April 1983, Greenville, Darke Co OH) was the daughter of John Calvin Martin and Elizabeth Boyer, and the granddaughter of David Martin (14 Dec, 1821, near Dayton, Montgomery Co OH - 20 Sept 1893, Adams Twp, Darke Co OH) and Eliza Ann Burns, (29 Feb 1828, Adams Twp, Darke Co OH - 15 May 1915, Adams Twp, Darke Co OH).  Eliza Ann Burns' parents and therefore Grace Martin McCrea's great grandparents, were Henry Burns Jr. and Elizabeth DeBra.  This page is a discussion of Eliza, her parents Henry and Elizabeth, and their ancestors.

IV. BURNS INFORMATION FROM RANDALL LOVEJOY'S BOOKLET

Randall Lovejoy (3 Sept 1927 - 10 May 2003) of Medford, Oregon, was an active Burns researcher. He wrote and self-published DESCENDANTS OF ERNEST BURNS (BORN) in 1991 and a revised edition in 1996. Randall was glad to send copies to fellow Burns researchers. He wrote in his preface “There are no restriction to copying this book.” I have copied some of his material in the files below, adding maps and an illustration.

V. 1903 ELIZA MARTIN FAMILY PHOTOS

In the summer of 1903, the widow Eliza Burns Martin, her 9 living children, the spouses of the 8 who were married, and most of their children and grandchildren gathered at the family home in Adams Twp, Darke Co OH and took group photos.  Thanks to Oma Martin Lehman, we have copies of those photos and the names of almost everyone in the photos.
