|Prince Albert Burnett|
On June 28, 1910, six year old Prince lived with his family in Greene County, Georgia. The enumerator recorded him as Price.
By February 13, 1920, Prince and his family had moved to the Walker District of Greene County. The enumerator got his name wrong again, spelling it as Prence. Prince had not attended school since September 1, 1919, but was able to read and write. At age 16, he was a laborer on the home farm.

I don’t find a military record for Prince and his death certificate says he never served in the military. I expected to find him in the World War II draft and am curious as to why he didn’t register.
Prince was the owner and operator of an agriculture and cattle farm.
My Daddy remembers his Uncle Prince as the kindest, nicest man you’d ever know.
I joined Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks 2014 challenge late so I’m continuing to work toward number 52. However, when I can, I plan to map to her 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: 2015 edition which has weekly themes. The theme for week 2 is “King.” While Uncle Prince wasn’t a king and in fact doesn’t have anything to do with royalty, I always smile when I think about “Prince Albert” marrying a “Queen.”
