1930 CENSUS Detroit, Wayne, MI (Sheet 27B, fam #30)... Newton Burnham 57, b.CAN,.. Ida Burnham 43, b.CAN, wife,.. Lawrence Burnham 17, b.MI, son. this is either a different Newton Burnham living in the same city, or he had this child, before 1920, while still previously married to Mary. There is no Ida & Newton Burnham in Detroit before 1930. This child "Lawrence" may have been the catalyst for the divorce, or "IF" this is the same Newton, he may have adopted this child. (same or not?) There was a Lawrence Burnham born June 20, 1913 at House of Mercy in Pittsfield, MA to Ida May Burnham of Pittsfield, MASS. she was born at Oneida, NY, and there was no information given on the father.
