Jerry Cannon said his grandfather, George Burns, came to NE North Dakota around 1902. He farmed by Joliette, ND for a few years and died pretty young.

They spent many years farming on the county road that starts on Highway 175 (Bill Winter corner) and goes to Humboldt, MN. There is a sign there today locating their farm as Burns Corner.
