General Notes (Husband)
There was considerable wealth in the Burnham family. Each girl had a servant nurse and there was a strong bond of affection between the nurse and the child. Each girl had many dresses and a trunk full of colored hose to match the dresses.
General Notes (Wife)
Eunice's parents had one or more huge plantations between the Pee Dee and the Little Pee Dee Rivers in the Carolinas.
Eunice was two years older than Gabrel. It is believed that the Browns did not approve of her marriage due to this age difference. She ran away in order to get married.
When her parents died, Enuice's brother received all the inheritance.
