George Burness1

     George Burness was born on 6 February 1841 in Quithlehead, Durris, Kincardineshire, Scotland.1 He was the son of Alexander Burness and Margaret Masson.1,2,3,4 He was baptized on 20 February 1841 in Durris, Kincardineshire, Scotland.1 He married Fanny Belcher, daughter of Charles Fury and Elizabeth Grafton, on 16 November 1870 in Stratford, Ontario, Canada.2 He died on 21 February 1915 in Eastern Hospital, Medical Lake, Spokane County, Washington, USA, at age 74.3 He was buried on 24 February 1915 in Greenwood Cemetery, Spokane, Washington, USA, after funeral at Corbin Park Episcopal Methodist Church.5
     Obituary: George Burness, age 72, related by descent to Robert Burns, the poet, died yesterday at the Eastern Washington hospital at Medical Lake, Wash., where he had been a patient two weeks. Once the possessor of a fortune, he dissipated it in investments, chiefly in the oil regions of Pennsylvania, but partly in business and in local mining stocks. Only the mining stocks have any value. His father was a second cousin of the poet. Burness was gifted with the power of sympathetic rhyiming espression. He wrote without hesitancy, but was too modest to permit the appearance of his verse in print. He was a resident of Spokane 18 years, a member of the Chant Music company until three years ago, when he became a salesman for the Reliable Fuel company. He lived for 14 years ar the residence of Mrs. Eva Andrews, N3317 Jefferson street. A brother of Burness was the mayor of a city in Turkey 20 years, and a sister Elsie, lives in Constantinople [Note: confusing brothers Nicholson, architect in Constantinople, and Robert, provost of Rothesay in Scotland, and sister Elsie living in Banchory, Scotland]. A brother, Alexander, is a traveling salesman for a music house at London, Ontario. A short time before his removal to Medical Lake Burness bought mining stock in the belief that it was in a cemetey association. He bought stock in another enterprise after the broker had been ordered not to sell to him because of his mental condition, says Mrs. Andrews. He wrote checks freely for anything offered to him before taken in charge until his account at the bank dwindled to $35. The body is at the rooms of the Hazen-Jaeger company. No arrangement for the funeral will be made until relatives are heard from.6

     Obituary: Ex-Provost Burness: The death took place at "Craigmore", Prestwick, the residence of his son-in-law, on Wednesday, of Mr. Robert Burness, who was Provost of Rothesay from 1905 till 1908. The ex-Provost's passing, which came somewhat suddenly, following upon an attack of bronchitis, will cause regret among a wide circle of friends in Bute and elsewhere. A native of Banchory, Aberdeenshire, the ex-Provost was 85 years of age. For 43 years he carried on business as a saddler in the shop in High Street, now occupied by Councillor Whiteford, and on retiring in 1919 went to reside in Prestwick. Deceased's first association with Rothesay Town Council was when he was co-opted in August, 1881, before the Ward system was introduced. At the November election in the same year he was re-elected, at which time he topped the poll. Ex-Provost Burness was assigned to represent the Third Ward when the Ward divisions were introduced in 1886, and he suffered defeat in 1887. In November, 1888, he was re-elected for the Fifth Ward, and had a continuous service from then till he retired from municipal work in 1908. He served as Dean of Guild and Magistrate. He had the reputation of combining courtesy with firmness during his term as Provost, and was noted for the masterly grip he had of public business. He was actively associated wuth the affairs of the Bute Savings Bank, and retired after 34 years' service as Manager, Trustee, and latterly as Chairman. For two terms he served as president of the West of Scotland Saddlers' Association, and was one of the founders of the Royal Arch Lodge of Freemasons. He was a member also of the Ancient Order of Foresters. He was a member of the Deacons' Court of the old Free Parish Church (now Trinity Church) for many years. In politics, he was a strong Liberal, and acted as chairman of the Buteshire Liberal Association for a considerable time. Ex-Provost Burness's wife, who for many years carried on a boarding establishment at Helenslea, High Craigmore, died some years ago. The ex-Provost is survived by a married daughter, Mrs. Neil S. Cunningham, whose husband is a son of the late Bailie James Cunningham, Rothesay. The funeral took place to Ayr Cemetery this afternoon.5
