John Henry Burnett was born 5 May 1888 at Lacona, Iowa. He completed the fifth grade and then farmed. He married Anna Marie Schinold on 6 September 1911 at Elbow, Saskatchewan, Canada. They had courted for six years. He moved with his family in 1903 from Iowa to a farm two miles west of Clara, Kansas (4 miles north of Strawberry, Kansas). In 1907 his fiancee and her family moved to Saskatchewan, Canada. Two years later he went to Canada where he homesteaded a tract of land (160 acres). He built a two room sod house where he and his bride set up housekeeping when they were married. A few years later he rented a farm close to his homestead and moved his family there as the house was larger and there were more out buildings. During the early 1920's the farmers suffered several years of drought and crop devastation by grasshoppers. In 1925 he moved his family back to Kansas where he resumed farming. When he quit farming the family moved into Washington, Kansas where he was employed at the grain elevator for a short time and later managed the Kent Oil Company Service Station. He lost an arm in an elevator accident. He died on 15 February, 1954.
