2. Burrell MILLION, son of Milton MILLION and Ann Elizabeth BRADSHAW , was born on 29 Oct 1851 in Monticello, MO, died on 11 Oct 1920 in Woodward, OK, at age 68, and was buried in Hennesy, OK.
Burrell Million was born in 1851 in Monticello, MO. The 1860 census shows that at age eight years he was in Dickerson Twp, Lewis County, ten years later the family was in La Grange, Lewis County. Burrell married Emma C. Kell in 1877.
Cancelled checks exist to show that he was in Farber, Audrain County, Missouri in 1904. At this time he and Emma moved to Apache, Oklahoma where he was cashier of the Apache State Bank. According to his granddaughter he obtained part interest in the bank. Emma's brother, Edwin, participated in the Oklahome land rush and was one of the early settlers of Apache. This may be the reason Burrell moved from Missouri to Oklahoma.
Burrell then moved to Supply, OK 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 contains an "In Memoriam" notice honoring Burrell's achievements in the banking industry.
