157. Joyce Edith BURNETT
The following notes were provided by descendant Sarah REDMOND ["sarahbetheroo"] in an e-mail message dated 24 Aug 2003
"My dad's mom was a Burnett. Her name was Joyce Edith Burnett, and she was born 7-3-1925 in Burlington, VT. She married Roy Redmond, who was born 10-20-1922 in Hinesburg VT. They were married 6-23-1945 in Middletown CT. She died August 1, 2001.
Joyce's father was William Newell Burnett, who was born 7-8-1898 in Underhill, VT. His first wife (my grandmother's mother) was Edith Davis, born in VT, and they were married 8-24-1924 in Winooski VT. She died in 1930. His second wife was Edith's sister, Ruth Davis, and they were married in Crown Point NY. She was born 2-26-1914, and died 12-14-1988. She is buried at Crown Point, NY. William Newell died 7-7-1956 in Albany NY, and is buried in the Fairview Cemetery, Crown Point NY.
His father was also William N. Burnett, and I believe you have the info on him. (the one married to Edna Melissa Mead)"
There were six children of Joyce's marriage to Roy REDMOND.
160. Peter BURNETT
Peter BURNETT in America made contact via the Internet - initially with Dave BURNETT in Canada.
Peter and his wife Doreen have lived in the US since 1975 and originally began looking into his genealogy about 20 years ago (Pre Computer Days). Considering the lack of finding aids available to him then he had considerable success unearthing the Burnetts in the Ripon area. However, he found it impossible to tie-in all the BURNETTs he recorded in any way that made sense - so he gave up. Then, by chance he found Dave BURNETT's Internet reference to the Burnetts of Bishop Monkton.
Peter provided all of the information in this file about the descendants of George BURNETT b:1815, at Straw House, Bishop Monkton.
Contact with Peter is being maintained.
