bullet  General Notes:

The following was submitted by Harry and Catherine McBurney to t he publication "Botany District The First 100 Years":

In 1922-23, Walter McBurney (Joseph McBurney's brother), farmed the Al ex Woods farm, 15-7-22. I n 1924 Joseph McBurney and sons Harry and Me lville rented the farm from A.L. Young. In 1925 Earl McBurney rented t he farm for a year. Harry rented the farm in 1926 and batched there un til February 1927, when he married Catherine Davidson of Souris. Whil e there they had two daughters born to them - Elva Catherine, born 192 8, and Marjorie Edith, born 1934. Elva married Russell Morden of Hartn ey and they have three daughters, Doreen, Donna and Rhonda. Marjorie m arried Ron Flewelling and they have two children, Todd and Jill; the y live in Red Deer, Alberta.
In 1935, owing to a shortage of water for stock, Harry and Catherine m oved to the Breezelawn District. When the farmland 7-7-21 in the Botan y District, owned by Bert Scott, became available in 1936 (Fred Waterm an had been living there), they rented it and moved there. By 1944 the y were in a position to buy it. Their children went to the Botany Scho ol which was just a mile away. In 1937 their son, Murray Edward, was b orn. When he grew up, he and his Dad farmed together. Harry was very f ond of his horses and took great care of them.
In 1956 Murray married Lorna McFarlane of Souris. He rented the farm o wned by Cliff Roper and worked it from 1967 to 1971. On December 6, 19 72, Murray died accidentally at the age of 35. His plane crashed nea r Camperville while hunting with his cousin Bob McBurney and friend Ja ck Morris. Left to mourn his passing were his wife Lorna and their fou r children - daughter Sherran 15, sons Dale 14, Scott 10, and Blaine 8 , also his parents and two sisters Elva and Marjorie.
In March 1972 Harry and Catherine bought Mrs. Howard Brown's house an d moved to Souris. They still loved country life and helped out at th e farm when needed. They celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary i n 1977 and their 60th in February 1987. Harry passed away April 22, 19 87.
