William A. Burgus
William A. Burgus was born April 20, 1853, in Berlin. He was one of (at least) six children born to Friedrich H. and Henrietta "Henriche" (Wagner) Burgus of Prussia. The family immigrated to the United States in 1861. They settled first in Des Moines County, Iowa, which is in southeast Iowa, and later branches of the family spread to Clarke County (south central) Iowa as well. William married Margaret Brumm, the daughter of Charles "Carl" and Eva Juliana "Julianna A." Osswald Brumm on June 21, 1877, in Kingston, Des Moines County, Iowa. They had six children and both lived long fruitful lives for their era, William dying in 1937, Margaret in 1946. Both are buried at St. John's Lutheran Cemetery in Des Moines County.
