I'm looking for my paternal grandmother's Burnett family. Specifically, Charles Burnett, b. 1860 and his wife, Mary (Martin) Burnett, b. 1865. My grandmother was Mabel Frances Burnett, brother Charles, b. 1889. Census shows family in Manhattan in 1900.

Would love to hear from anyone with information about this line.

Thank you.

Hi Teresa. My wife and I have been researching a lot into the Burnett line. Have you made any progress? I have been researching some other Burnetts in New York around the same time. Seems to be a different line though.

I did find that Census you mentioned in 1900. Says both Charles Burnett Sr parents were also born in New York so that narrows down your search quite a bit. I then found the 1870 Census, when Charles Sr was 11. It shows his parents and siblings. Says his father, Samuel, was an Engineer. Both parents were born in NY, which seems to help match this document to the 1900 document. Here's the info from the census:

1870 United States Federal Census about Charles Burnett
Name: Charles Burnett
Age in 1870: 11
Birth Year: abt 1859
Birthplace: New York
Home in 1870: Fishkill District 3, Dutchess, New York
Race: White
Gender: Male
Post Office: Fishkill Plains
Value of real estate: View image
Household Members:
Name Age
Samuel Burnett 34
Mary Burnett 48
Fanny Burnett 26
Millard F Burnett 19
Charles Burnett 11
Hannah Burnett 14
John O Conley 28

I'm happy to try to look into it further if you'd like.
