Bubba Burgeron

What joy after all these years.  Bubba Burgeron has been found! He was washed away during the big flood of ’57 and of course presumed drowned. Bubba was William’s oldest son by Betty his first wife, who was also lost during the flood.  After William and the family finally accepted the fact that his beloved Betty was gone, he remarried Margie and had two more sons.  The photo above is of the three boys Comet, Bubba and Teddy, at the old one room school house.

Thanks to the work we’ve been doing here on our site and around the internet to get the word out (and back in) about the Burgeron Family, a nice young lady Stefanie from Germany ( @StefanieJ2 ) thinks Bubba may be her father. He was found barely alive in a boat heading to Germany. He didn’t remember who he was or where he came from, just this nagging desire to return to his family in a flooded trailer.

I’ve added her  to the tangle of a Burgeron family tree we’re piecing back together again, along with an invitation to join our site and share more stories of her father. We’re hoping she’ll be able to attend the big family reunion at the end of August in one form or another.

I want to put out an open invitation to anyone else who has information about our family to join us.  If you need access to the website or the family tree just tweet the ol’ lady and I’ll get you hooked up. @Nanalou022
