The Burright Family

The Burright Family is connected to our family tree through the Stewarts. The Burright’s are a great example of a family that migrated from the American North-East across America.

Part of that story is captured in the biographical ‘The Sun Rides High’ co-created by Blanche Burright and her father Orrin Ulysses Burright.
