Patrick McCauley family, circa 1893

One of my Burris cousins has been very helpful with information about her McCauley clan.

She is descended from Patrick McCauley (1837-1895) and Mary Elizabeth Thoss (1854-1941).

Yesterday, she sent me a photo of the family. On the basis of my guess that Ida May McCauley was about 6 or 7 years old, I'm approximating the photo to have been taken around 1893. The McCauleys were living in Conway Co., AR at the time, and that's where Patrick McCauley died and was buried.

Ernest Arthur Burris family

Ernest Arthur Burris was the second of twelve children born to George Washington Burris, Sr., and Mary Mathilda Wharton.

He was also their second son. He was born 2 Nov 1880, as our family says "on Isabell Creek," and died in 1952.

On 5 Feb 1905, he married Ida May McCauley. She was the daughter of Patrick McCauley (who was born in Ireland), and Mary E Thoss. Ida was born 22 Apr 1887, and died 10 May 1971. She and Ernest are buried in St. Joe Cemetery in Pope County, not far from where Ernest was born.

This photo is of Ernest and Ida in 1950 at St. Joe.
