About James Burnham, Sr.

This is the James Burnham that witnessed the will of Joseph Burnham, NOT James' brother. This profile needs to be separated from James. It is a good guess the two men are related due to the uncommon name of Elsina both have for a daughter.

Joseph is assumed to have a brother James buried in Canaan, NH who lived until age 27 childless.
