Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 12, 1814
Death: Nov. 15, 1872

James C. Burnett's middle initial comes from his will. His tombstone does not include a middle initial. The tombstone was discovered, almost buried, in the Shepherd Cemetery, 8 miles from Shelbyville Kentucky, by Kevin Stephenson and Milton Burnett during the summer of 1996. The cemetery is now on land, and is in a state of extreme disrepair. The weeds had to be knocked down to even get to the gravesite. The tombstone had been toppled over, and Kevin and Milton reset it on its base.

James C. Burnett's estate was recorded in Probate Book 229, Page 16. His will is in Will Book 34, page 369. His estate administration was approved and recorded in Book 35, page 374. The sale is recorded in Book 35, page 386. The settlement is recorded in Book 36, page 188. See also Deed Book H3, pages 26 and 28. His executor was J.J. Burnett.
