William Lon, I am so very happy that you have found this site. I am extremely pleased you left a comment. I would love to get to know you better, too. I would also like to add to your branch of them Burnam tree. I'm Lon Stiver Burnam Jr.'so daughter. Your father is my cousin. I currently live on Vancouver Island in BC. I had hoped that we would meet one day but I have to get my travelling permanent resident card and that may take a fewhile months. My nephew, Nick Burnam, and his family live in Oregon. It might be nice for you all to get together before you leave. Or not.. I do hope we can get better acquainted at least on here or on Facebook or simply by email. glburnam@gmail.com. God bless you and may He guide you on your journey. Lynette Burnam

Thank you for this informative site. It seems that perhaps I feel more disconnected to family than any other group, so it's nice to learn something about my family even if it is from a website. My grandfather is Willie (Bill) Desmond Burnam. My grandmother is Dorthene (Dottie) Burnam. I truly wish I had known them both more. I have a few memories with each of them, mostly down in Florida where I will soon be moving. when we move, we will be going through Northwest Texas to see Quanah, Vernon, Chillicothe, and the Wichita Falls area along the way. These areas are rich with Burnam history. I've been through the area three or four times in the last 20 years. Every single time I drive through I stop at the cemetery in Chillicothe on the north end of town to see grandma Dottie's grave marker and her parents graves. I also, if the season is right, pick a small handful of cotton from the cotton fields that Grove if the season is right, pick a small handful of cotton from the cotton fields that grow across the street from the cemetery across the street from the cemetery. Call me sentimental. I don't know very many people from my own family. In fact I don't even know my own father that well, and sadly, due to petty and immature reasons, I don't suspect that he and I will be sharing much time our conversation together in the years ahead. It's a real shame to, I realize he had a strained relationship with his father, and as his son, I feel I had two cards stacked against me ever since I was old enough to have an objective thought in his presence. So for me, I guess you could say it is strange being a Burnam, seeing several other portions of the Burnam family stay in contact and communicate with one another, while I have made it through this world with almost no extended family interaction. My wife Wendy is my best friend, and she will be my best friend until the day that I no longer walk this earth,. My children who are in their mid to late teens and one in his early 20s, are also fast becoming my very best and closest friends in this world as well. Perhaps in some way I can foster the closeness with family that I have missed my whole life with my children and my some-day grandchildren. I am looking forward with all my heart for my wife and I to be great grandparents some day. I may not have any experience of what it's like to be a part of a paternal heritage, or to have memories of father, grandfather, and myself enjoying each other's company with ease, laughter and come rotary, however, it is my life's mission to learn what it is to provide these things that I never had to my children and their children and perhaps in someway make sure that there is no need to heal from the kind of hurt that I've had to learn to heal from. If this message is ever read by someone who may either become offended or hurt by these words, well the only thing I have to say about that is that the phone rings both ways and you know what you need to do if you ever care to have restoration in our relationship. With all due respect, and with kind regards; William

Camille, I'm delighted you stopped by. I hope you'll join us and add information here. I would love to add information from the Davies and Kettles side of the family. It would be awesome to know more about Nina Davies and her brothers, sisters, parents and grandparents, and more. Do you have any photos of them all which I could add? Perhaps some stories? So excited to meet more family! Thank you for signing the guestbook. I am Gaye Lynette Burnam Phipps, Nina Davies Bonnie's granddaughter.
