Isabelle Burnett - Ninth Child of Alfred and Julia Burnett

Isabelle or Isabel was the ninth child of Alfred and Julia Burnett.  She was born in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana about 1859.  Isabella can be found living in her parent’s household in the 1860 and 1870 US Census.

The 1870 census indicates she could not read or write; not uncommon for that era, but still interesting for a ten year old.  After 1870 no trace of Isabelle can be found.  Maybe she died as a youth?
