First Confirmed Evidence of Alfred Burnett

The first documented evidence of Alfred Burnett can be found in the 1838 tax roll of Jackson County, Mississippi.1 His state tax was 37 ½ cents. From the US Census records we believe Alfred’s birth year to be 1812, which would make Alfred 26 years old in 1838 and a resident of Jackson County, MS.
