Surnames: BURTON CREAMER PALMER WINTERS LITTRELL BULLOCK
Submitter: Jacl (Burton)
Date: 20 Oct 2002

I am researching the Burton and Palmer surnames. My father was Troy Burton and his father was John Alen Burton. I believe John Alen Burton's father was Willis Burton and Willis Burton's father was Frank Burton. From Census reports I found that Frank Burton listed a son named Willis at proper age and Willis Burton lists a son named John (Johnnie) at proper age. John Alen married Hattie Bell Creamer and Willis Burton married Molly Winters. Frank Burton's wife is shown as Elizabeth (Lizzi). The Burtons lived in Hardin County. Is any one familiar with this line of Burton and if so can you provide some facts to firm up the census information collected?
