Henry S. Burgin

Henry S. Burgin was born in Lee County, Va., March 31, 1845.  When he was eight years old his father moved to Harrison County, Missouri, where the lad attended school.  In 1870 the lad was graduated from Grand River College, Edinburg, Mo.  For a while he was interested in short-horn cattle, but soon went into teaching.  He established the High School at Ridgeway and Lorraine, Mo., and was Principle of several High Schools.
     In 1886 he moved his family to Independence, mo., for educational advantages, and was offered the Principalship of the Independence High Schools, but that same year he engaged in the real estate business in Kansas City, and has been at it ever since.
     Mr. Burgin was married July 2, 1871, at Knoxville, Tenn., to Miss Ettie McCannon, and has three children, all married:  The Rev. S. H. C. Burgin, Eliza Burgin, and Willa L. Burgin.
