Thomas Burnett or Joseph Thomas Burnett 1812-1877 born in Durhamshire england maybe wife isabella Watson Thomas, Isabella, daughter Ann and son Peter arrived in Pennsylvania about 1842. Can't seem to get farther back than that. Any help would be appreciated. Linda

Hello Linda,
In response to your query, the records of St Mary's Roman Catholic Chapel in the parish of Bishopwearmouth, Durham, show that a Thomas Burnett, born on 30 April 1811, was baptised on 3 May 1811 by Peter Wilcock. His father was Joseph Burnett and his mother was Sarah (ms Kelley).
The marriage records for the district of Houghton Le Spring, Durham, show that a Thomas Burnett and Isabella Watson were married in that district within the period April-June 1839.
Records for the same district of Houghton Le Spring show a Joseph Burnett aged 58, born 1764, was buried on 12 Sept 1822. This may have been Thomas's father. A Sarah Kelley died in that district in 1844 but nothing in the brief record to indicate if this was Thomas's mother.
Hope this helps.
Best wishes
Eileen
