David Brown is Tony Burns' Son in Law  and he tells his story here:


My father in law, Tony Burns was indeed Felix Hensley Jones crew chief. Carroll Peak who went by "Cud" was a tent mate with my Father in Law. I did  the historical work up for the captions. When my Father in Law passed away  I received a box of unmarked photos from his wife Jane. Carroll Peak lived 45 miles up the Ohio river from me....I met him at a CBI Basha meeting in Louisville. I called him and asked for help identifying the photos. I drove to his home in Bedford, Ky. and we went through them on his kitchen table.....a lot of stories and information just started to come out....it was a wonderful day.
