Born Feb. 11, 1820 in Virginia, he married Nancy A Wallace/Wallis in Trigg Co. Kentucky. When  Nancy died in 1860 the family moved to Osage Co. Kansas.  Cornelius's children, Lucertia, Charles, Cornelius, Nancy E. and Sarah although Sarah had married August 1869 and had a daughter, Elizabeth Willis  May 1870  Kansas, was living in the household. Nearby his son, John and wife Nancy with children Charles and Dorisella was living in the household of Cornelius other son, William H.  Burnett. 
One of my mysteries is Sarah remarried to a James Burns and their son, James Jr. was born in Chickasaw Nation in 1878/79 but was living in Carroll Co. Arkansas with the rest of the family in 1880.
