Mary Ellen Hurst 1
- Born: 1882
- Marriage (1): Samuel Ernest Burum
- Died: 1964 at age 82
It is said that she could set type by hand at age 9. She was the first woman in
Dinuba to graduate from High School in 1900, having to attend some
miles away in Visalia as Dinuba's High School then accepted men
only. She added substantially to the genealogical collection begun by
her father and her work includes many detailed and carefully written
pages in her own hand, as well as pages typed on her "Royal"
typewriter. One handwritten page, with many entries made over
several years, records both my birth and marriage. She continued to
contribute until her death in 1964.
Mary married Samuel Ernest Burum. (Samuel Ernest Burum was born on 2 Nov 1882 in Roane, Tennessee and died on 16 Jun 1964 in Dinuba, Tulare, California.)
