to Rich Estate. Mrs. Victor Stone attended a
reunion of the descendents of Mrs. Elizabeth Burnette, at
Bradfordsville, Ky., last week. Mrs. Stone is one
of the heirs to an immense fortune which is now being
investigated. The Lebanon News of last Thursday
said: "The reunion of the descendents of Mrs.
Elizabeth Burnette which was held at Bradfordsville was
largely attended. One hundred and seven were
present and seven different States were
represented. It was recently discovered that Mrs.
Burnette owned two hundred acres of land in the
Burke-Burnette oil fields of Texas and her heirs are
arranging to have the property developed. Many of
the big oil companies are offering fabulous prices for
the land but the present plan is to have wells drilled on
the property which is in the heart of the biggest oil
pool in the United States. It is possible that the
property will be worth millions of dollars."
