Kathryn Loretta Burnette

Kathryn Loretta Burnette was the only child of Prince Albert Burnette and Mary Lee Queen. She was stillborn in Greene County, Georgia on November 4, 1934. Prince and Mary buried their infant daughter at Shiloh Baptist Church Cemetery in Penfield. 

I don’t know the circumstances of her birth—whether her mother carried her to term or went into labor early. But she existed and today I remember her. She is not forgotten.

Kathryn is my 1st cousin 1x removed. Our nearest common relative would be my great grandparents, Thomas Terrell Burnette and Elizabeth Jones.
