Was born in Illinois, July 18, 1858, and was there reared and received a good common school education. In the spring of 1874 he went to Livingstop County, Missouri, and there engaged in farming, continuing until the spring of 1877, when he went to Caldwell County and went into the drug business at Proctorville. He remained there until early in 1880, when he came to this County and opened out in the drug line at Lock Springs.

He was married, in Daviess County, September 22, 1881, to Miss Mary A. Grimes, a lady who was born in Texas, June 11, 1862. Mr. Burris, though still a young man, has already evinced such business talent as must insure him success; and his accommodating disposition and fair dealing have won him many friends and built him up a good trade.
