Theodore E Burton of OH was a Progressive Republican during the time that my great-grandfather was secretary of the Ohio Progressive Republicans, so they definitely knew each other. Fun fact, Burton's law teacher was Lyman Trumbull, a Civil War and Reconstruction politician from IL who was one of Lincoln's friends. 

His actions:

Burton, Theodore E. 1890 Co-sponsors Sherman Anti-Trust Act
Burton, Theodore E. 1902 Sponsors legis to build Panama Canal
Burton, Theodore E. 1908 Progressive opposed to conservative Speaker Cannon's leadership
Burton, Theodore E. 1916 Rep Pres Cand
Burton, Theodore E. 1924 Strong Rep VP cand
