Gina McGraw

1. E-mail 28 Jan 2021; Gina Palmer.
"...I am the daughter of Ruth Marie "Jackie" Burton? and Leon McGraw. I am the granddaughter of Eileen Shumate Burton.

"Unfortunately, I don't know that I can provide "data" for what I'm going to tell you.

"The graves of Mary (sic, Margaret?) Kay Burton and Mary Ann Burton, although originally located in Brenton, were moved to the Clay Cemetery (near Twin Falls). Not sure when, but they are there.

"That is also where Eileen Burton, Elmer Burton, Leon and Jackie McGraw are buried.

"Although she went by Burton, Ruth Marie Burton, may or may not have legally been "Burton". I do not know if Elmer Burton adopted her or not. Funny the things you never ask your parents when they are alive. I do know that her father was Claude Farmer (who was not married to Eileen Shumate/Burton) at the time of the birth. I probably can find the Court document that "found" Ruth was Claude Farmer's daughter - which was after the death of Claude sometime in the 1970's I think. In preparation for that court case, I don't think my parents ever found my mother's birth certificate; I believe she was born at home. I'm not sure it exists. I've searched the WV vital records under "Burton, Farmer, and Shumate and do not get a hit."
