About Mildred Embree (Burrus)

Information from: The Families of LOU DRAPER & CHARLIE MARTIN of Johnson and Henry Counties, Missouri by James M McMillen, Arlington, Texas. Published in .pdf format 13 January 2010

Mildred (Milly) Burrus (about 1749, Orange County, Virginia–between 1788 and 1796, Clark County, Kentucky), married before 1788 Joseph Embree (died before 1818). They lived in Harrodsburg, Kentucky.

They joined the Providence Baptist Church in Clark County, Kentucky, in 1786. The church had originally been in Orange County, Virginia, but its members had moved en masse to Kentucky, stopping twice along the way before settling permanently in Clark County. The group was called the Bush Colony, for William (Capt Billy) Bush, who had come to Kentucky with Daniel Boone, obtained land and had sold it to his relatives and friends in the group.
