Loretta was born to Joseph and Elizabeth Jones in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Sources conflict on Loretta's birth information. The Pegoda Bible says 21 Jun 1864. Loretta's death certificate states she died on 02 Mar 1946 at the age of 81 years and 9 months but her birth date is stated as 02 Jun 1863 making her 82 years and 9 months. Her grave marker says 1864. The Pegoda Bible states 1864. Therefore, the date on the death certificate has been assumed to be incorrect. The place of birth on the death certificate is in conflict with the census records and a Bible record. The Bible and census records are assumed to be accurate as they presumably represent information directly from Loretta.

Loretta's maiden name is given by the Pegoda Family Bible record (although it is misspelled) and the fact that she is labeled as sister of Edmon Jones in the 1910 census. While on the surface she could be the sister of Edmon's wife, this is likely not the case given the common birth places listed for Edmon and Loretta and their parents. Additionally, Loretta and Edmon are tied to their parents by their siblings in the 1860 and 1870 censuses.

Loretta married Denton P. Burnett around 1881 probably near Clay County, Tennessee. Denton and Loretta had 7 children.
