General Notes: Burrell Million was born in 1851 in Monticello, Missouri where he was reared. Cancelled checks exist to show that he was in Farber, Missouri before coming to Oklahoma. He came to Oklahoma in 1904, first engaging in the banking business in Apache, where he was cashier of the Apache State Bank.

It is assumed that he met his wife, Emma Catherine Kell, when he moved to Apache. The Kells and the Blairs were among the first families to settle in Apache and became prominent families in the community. Emma's sister Ethel married a Blair. The Apache Musuem has artifacts and photos of both families.

Burrell then moved to Supply in 1911, where he bought the Bank of Supply and became its president. He led an active business life, giving liberally of both his time and means to the upbuilding of the community. He died in 1920 of heart trouble. After his death his son Burrell Jr. became president of the bank. Both Burrell and Emma are buried in Hennessey, Oklahoma, where her sister and father had a homestead.

The November, 1920 issue of The State Banker magazine contained an "In Memoriam" notice honoring his achievements in the banking industry.
