Roy William Burney
Roy was his middle name that he went by but his given name was William Roy Burney. He was born in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada on July 17, 1901 to George Burney. He had one brother and five sisters: George Milton, who went by Milton; Nellie, May, Lenore, Gerturde and Florence. Nellie married a Charles Richardson, May married a Merle Fox, Lenore married Frank Waggenor, Gerturde never married and Florence married but I'm not sure what her married name was.
I was told that this Burney family was a direct decendent to Fanny Burney and to a Burney who was a cabin boy for one of the ventures made by Captain Cook.
Anyone with any information would be eagerly anticipated.
Thank you ahead of time.
