Per Volunteer Forty-niners Tennesseans and the California Gold Rush By Walter T. Durham
DANIEL MONROE BURNS Probably the youngest Tennessean at Sutter's Fort when the eastern gold seekers began to arrive in 1849 was Daniel born in Paris, Tennessee, in 1845. He, an older brother Thomas M., and sister Laura A. had accompanied their parents William and Caroline Griffin Burns when they left Henry County in 1846 to lead a wagon train of settlers to Oregon. While en route, their father died of cholera. Sometime after reaching Oregon, the widowed mother married Alfred Shelby, and in February 1849, they responded to the gold discovery by relocating to Sutter's Fort. Caroline Shelby died in December, leaving her children with their stepfather, who deserted them soon afterward. Families who learned of their plight took them in and provided for them.54
