You are at the right place. Read all you can here at the website and you will learn about the Chief's coat of arms and the crest and other family heraldry. The site also gives you information on family books, and you might look up June Bork "The Burnett's and Their Connections".

I am in Arkansas as well and feel free to call me anytime. 479-857-1687 or email me at jcb5353@yahoo.com. And I will try to help you with as much information as I can.

Once again WELCOME! Spend some time and look around.

John

I, too, am in Arkansas, and managed to trace our line back to the Burnetts. It's up through my great-grandmother's line. This is all according to my research. If you have corrections, feel free to let me know. :) Especially once you get up into all the Johns it gets really confusing.

My great-grandmother is B. J. Kimbrough, who was born to William Kimbrough (1906-1982) and Jessie Mae Kitchens (1908-???).
Jessie Mae was born to James Kitchens (1881-1964) and Jessie Lee Templeman (1887-1949).
Jessie Lee was born to Rufus P. Templeman (1859-1897) and Mary Ann Havner (1866-???).
Rufus was born to Aaron Templeman (1828-1911) and Missouri Martin (1828-1879).
Aaron was born to James M Templeman (1802-1858) and Thursey Burnett (1802-1859).
Thursey was born to John Burnett (1730-1809) and Sarah Johnson (1763-1851).
John was born to John Burnett III (1702-1775) and Catherine Newbill (1706-1789).
John III was born to John Burnett II (1660-1718) and Amy Gatewood (1685-1749).
John II was born to John Burnett (1610-1686- born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland) and Lucretia Johnston (1629-1709- born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland).
John was born to Thomas Burnett (1574-1661- Scotland) and Margaret Johnston (1584-1672- Scotland).
Thomas was born to John Burnett (1548-1612- Scotland) and Isabel Johnston (1549-1620- Scotland).
John was born to Robert Burnett (1516-???) and Sara Johnston.

And that's as far as I got. :)

If you are that far back, you almost know it all. You need to buy the book "The Holly and The Horn" on this website. It will connect your ancestor to the Burnett's of Leys and take you back as far as we know.

Good Luck
