The Burright's moved from Iowa to Missouri for a short while, then to Cowley County, Kansas. Charles and his dad operated a farm there. They had the first steam thrasher in the area. On their first harvest, though, a spark ignited the field and their entire farm burned.

They than moved further west to Dodge City where they punched cattle for a time. When the Oklahoma Territory was opened up, they moved back to Cowley Co. and ran in the Cherokee Strip and homesteaded in Gutherie, OK. Charles' lot was s e 21 15 4 in Logan Co.

When Sarah Shreeve died Joseph married a widow
named Sarah Huff. Sarah was Lily Huff's Mother
and Charles Colby's mother-in-law and step-mother. Ewwwww

Joseph W. served in the Union Army as a private
War records show he was in the 114th regiment,
Iowa Infantry, Company G.

I couldn't find corroberation, but traditions says he
was captured at the "Battle of Shiloh" when his
comander surrendered April 7, 1862 and interred at
Andersonville. Conditions were terrible there.
No food or medications. Illness was rampant and
wounds were maggoty. He was offered parole Oct. 12,
1862, as long as he would not bear arms against
the south. He took it and recieved his handfull of corn and made his way back home.

Warren made the land run in 1889 and settled in Gutherie, OK, where he quarried native stone and did a little masonry. His lot was s e 17 18 3 in Logan Co.
