Aledo Weekly Record - Tuesday, Aug. 25, 1863
FUNERAL OF CAPT. JAS. BURNETT
the funeral of Capt. Burnet, which occurred in this place, Tuesday last, was largely attended by his many friends and acquaintances throughout the County, each anxious to pay their tribute of respect to the memory of one who had fallen, while nobly defending the cause so near and dear to every patriot's heart.
His remains were conveyed to the Candor Church-yard, for interment, and very appropriately wrapped in the American Flag, followed by a large procession, including quite a number of soldiers, preceded with martial music. Col. Shedd, Capt. Sanders, Capt. Scudder, Lients. Gibson McClure, and Blackburn, acting as pall-bearers. At the grave they were met by large numbers from that vicinity, where the remains of Captain James Burnet were consigned to their last resting place with military honors.
