bullet  General Notes:

John James came to Manitoba, taking up a homestead in the Westhall District (1-5-22) and later to Argue, Manitoba. In 1904 he bought section 2-6-23 (4 miles south of Hartney). This remained the McBurney home until 1966. Joyce and Harriet McBurney came there as newlyweds and raised their four children there. The farm was named Kinloss after the township in which James John was born in Bruce County, Ontario. It has been said by Jim McBurney that the McBurneys were Presbyterians from County Antrim, Northern Ireland: also that they emigrated from Scotland to Ireland. John James was interested in sports, music, and carpentry.

Both are buried in Hartney Cemetery. 2,48
