Burns - Dicy Deer


Source: Crawfordsville Semi-Weekly Journal, August 20, 1887

On August 8, Dicy Burns, on of the early settlers of Brown township, died at her home near Waveland, aged 83 years. From the Waveland Independent we take the following facts in reference to the deceased; "She was born in Madison county, Virginia, June 26, 1803, and married James Burns in Boone county, Kentucky, May 11, 1826. She and her husband came to this county with the first settlers, and settled on the farm where she died, in the spring of 1830. She lived on this farm ever after, a period of fifty-seven years. She was the mother of ten children, only three of whom survive her She leaves two aged sisters, three daughters and numerous grandchildren and great-grand-children to mourn her loss." - thanks to Kim H Note: Maiden : Deer
