    From a Burris Family newsletter dated July 1991:
    "John Burris: The original John Burris of 1738 tombstone was found in 1975 in Boxley, IN. The story is a farmer wanted to clear off his land for farming, this also included the old cemetery property where John Burris was buried. The tombstones had been thrown into a ditch. Phillip Cline and others brought suit against the farmer to stop any further destruction, and restore the cemetery to its original condition. The tombstones were then placed into the farmer's basement awaiting the court's decision. The United States government has installed a Revolutionary War Veterans stone for John Burris, in honor of his service during the Revolutionary War...."
