In 1978 a grandson visited Henry Cemetery in Corinth, MS, and spoke to the caretaker who said that Richard Jackson Burnett was buried beside his first wife, Ida Victoria Brooks Burnett, in an unmarked grave.  The caretaker even drew a sketch of the plot indicating RJ's grave..  Ida is behind and to the left of her father, Hezekiah S. Brooks.
