Jennings Michael Burch
Early life and education
Jennings Michael Burch was born in the South Bronx, New York and spent most of his childhood in foster homes. A single parent, Burch's mother placed her children in foster care in 1949, when Jennings was eight, but claimed that she would be back. Between 1949 and 1954, Burch had stayed in 32 foster homes, moved with his family[which?] three times, and stayed with at least three sets of foster parents. Also he lost his biological brother Jerome, whom he hardly knew.
Burch was married and had four daughters.
