Re: Photo request for Burnett Ward at Mt Hope
Mary,

In regards to whether this is the Burnett Ward that you are looking for, the Mt Hope Interment Records from which this memorial was created (http://www.lib.rochester.edu/IN/RBSCP/Databases/IMAGES/MtHope/disc1/00000739.pdf) claim that he was 45 at the time of death. So that would put his birth year at about 1831. On the other hand, these records are far from infallible, so I wouldn't consider that definitive.

In regards to finding a tombstone for this Burnett Ward, a survey of surviving legible tombstones done in the 1980s for the section where he was buried (http://mcnygenealogy.com/cem/mthope-sec-osg.htm) does not have a listing for him. This also is not infallible, as we have occasionally found tombstones that were missed, but the odds are not good. So, myself or another volunteer can check out the location and see what we find.

I have transferred John D. Brown's site #87061581 to you, but I do not own Mary's site in Mt. Calvary. Nonetheless, you can now connect the two if you want.
