Dear Annie Huey:
Thank you for posting on History Hub!
FamilySearch.org is a free genealogical website that only requires an account. This website will help you find genealogical information on Katherine Burton. I suggest starting with the United States Census and here is a good source on How to Begin Genealogical Research. Her personal papers may not have been published or donated to an archive.
Thanks so much for your response and your suggestions! That article looks great.

Thank you so much for pointing out these wonderful resources! I have some of them but not all and they will be so helpful to my project!
I’m not sure if you already have this information about Katherine Kurz Burton, but I did find two archived newspaper obituaries online which may be of interest to you.
Bronxville Review Press and Reporter, 25 September 1969 (page 1, continued on page 4)
Courier-Journal, 03 October 1969 (page 4)
Hope this helps.
These are great sources! Thank you so much!
