Page 213 contains an error that states that Hannah Creal, wife of Stephen Grover Burnett, died in 1854. According to family lore she was thrown from a horse when her youngest of 5 children, William was one year old. According to The Western Register and Terre-Haute Advertizer, 17 Dec 1829, page 3: "On Wednesday, the 9th inst., Mrs. Hanna Burnett, wife of Stephen G. Burnett of Otter Creek township, was riding on horseback between Mahlon Stevenson's and Benjamin Bailey's, the horse took fright and threw her--She was taken up and carried to the house of Mr. Stevenson--every exertion was made for her recovery--but all in vain--she expired in a few minutes...."
By Patty Delmott, 3rd great granddaughter of Hanna & Stephen Grover Burnett.
