Esther was born as the first child of Zachariah Potter and Mary A. Plumlee. She married Moses Burnett about 1843 probably in Tennessee. Moses and Esther had 7 children. Esther appears to have died while the family was in the process of moving to Texas. It is not known if the Whitewright area was a long stop-over, or if they stopped due to illnesses in the family. It is believed that her son Denton also died around this time in the same area.
