USS Brownsville Article Correction

USS Brownsville Article Correction

Robert Runyon's daughter that christened the ship was Lillian Runyon Burney.  She was married to James Burney who worked in Venezuela and then at Los Alamos on the Nuclear Bomb.  He then had Electronics business with a shop in Hgn besides Corpus Christi selling Setchell Carlson tvs, etc.  His brother Cecil Burney, a lawyer in CC, was going to be LBJ's campaign manager, but LBJ decided not to run again.  They were long time friends.  Anyway, saw the article on USS Brownsville from you and on Wikipedia and wanted to correct her last name as you have Gurney.

Hope all is well.
