  • Notes 
    • John Burt, of Autauga County, Alabama, died about September of 1827 [1]. His wife was Hannah [-?-] [2], who was probably born about 1775 [3].

      It is believed that this John Burt was the son of Joseph Burt Sr. of Halifax County, North Carolina, and that he was first married to Sarah Marshall in 1788. Definite proof of this is currently lacking. [4]

      Early Georgia tax digests found a John Burt listed in Tattnall Co. in 1802 and 1817, in Hancock Co. in 1804, and in Baldwin Co. in 1810 and 1815 (note that John Matthews and Mary "Polly" Burt were living in Baldwin Co., GA during this time period).

      The name John Bert appears on a muster roll of the 33rd Regiment, 2nd class Georgia Militia on 9 Nov 1814. John Burt also appeared in an 1810 Census in Capt. Watson's Military District, Baldwin Co., GA.

      Autauga County AL Orphans Court Minutes (Book 2, p. 72) reveal that the final estate settlement was made on 22 Feb 1830. On that date, a jury was summoned, on the complaint [7] of William Burt, who found that John Avent had received $562, William Burt $25, and Zacheus Burt $3 out of the estate, and that the other heirs had received nothing. After Stephen M. Burt, the administrator, appeared and reported on his proceedings, he was ordered to pay the following:

      to Hannah Burt widow of said John Burt, $982;
      to William Burt, $336.19;
      to Zacheus Burt, $358.18;
      to William Burt adm. of Joseph J. Burt, $361.51;
      to William Burt guardian of Jno. Burt, $361.51;
      to John Marshall guardian of Pendleton J. Marshall, $361.51;
      to Jno. Huddleston guardian of B. H. Burt, $361.51;
      to Jno. Huddleston guardian of Alex. H. Burt, $361.51;
      to Jno. Huddleston guardian of Eliza Burt, $361.51;
      to Jno. Huddleston guardian of Margaret Burt, $361.51;
      to Jno. Huddleston guardian of Francina Burt, $361.51.
