Bio and Links
I am a family history researcher, primarily on the BURSON surname, although I frequently get side-tracked!! Findagrave has been a huge help to me on many occasions.

I am also a writer, and have recently published a new history of my hometown, Victoria/Strong in Union County, Arkansas. Hardback, 420 pages. Anyone interested may contact me through my personal email.

I also have "A Burson Family Story" for sale. This book is primarily about the earliest generations of Bursons in America.

I have limited copies available of another of my books, "Red Hill - A Novel Of Alabama," a historical novel of my great great grandparents, David Lawson and Celia Ann McInish Burson.

I have just published another book called "A Bad Day Dawning - A Novel of the Independence Day Murders." A historical novel about a pair of brutal murders which took place in Union County, Arkansas on July 4, 1935.

Also available: "Growing Up Strong," a childhood story set in the little town of Strong, Arkansas in the 1950s.

Also available: "Book One of Follow The River - A Historical Novel of Alabama." Set along the historic Tallapoosa River in Alabama, beginning in the year 1836. Book Two of Follow The River is now available.

All books are hardback, perfect bound.

PFC Ernest Perry Hendrix
Mike, I am doing some volunteer work for the 35th Infantry Regiment Association. I saw a note from 2009 on that you had received the IDPF for PFC Hendrix. At least I hope you are the same Mike Burson. Please contact me as I would appreciate any help you can provide.

Rev. Elijah Alvie Baker
Sorry, I had no idea Mr. Baker was so closely related to you. He is much more distant to me. He is the brother to Elizabeth Ann Baker-Howard. She is my 3rd great grandmother. I have info on his 10 siblings and their descendents as well as his descendents with his other two wives.

I also have a publication called Growing Up In The Long Ago by Etta Baker-Bradshaw which details the above.

We should compare notes sometime. Most of the Bakers I'm familiar with are buried in north-east Mississippi. I live in Wisconsin but plan on heading down there sometime in September.

I might send you a few edit links from time to time. It probably won't be in the very near future but I'm sure that you will be interested in them

Thanks for getting back to me.

RE: William Shaw
you are welcome, sorry it has taken so long. I visited Union County last June, and took photos of over 18 cemeteries and have been working on indexing them and adding them to It is taking a long time. I have done 3 in Mississippi and Strong is #4 in Arkansas.

Hi, Mike ...

This memorial has been transferred to my management and I have added her obituary. Check it out when you have time.
