Talk:Jacob Burnet

sometimes spelled Burnett[edit]

As far as Gilkey spelling the name with two t's, I think that would just be a mistake on Gilkey's part, rather than an actual alternate spelling. On the next page, he spells Joseph Darlinton as Darlington. On page 78 he spells Bezaleel Wells name incorrectly and again adds a g to Darlinton. Mistakes happen.
Henry Howe actually met Burnet, and spelled it with one t. Howe, Henry (1889). Historical Collections of Ohio, The Ohio Centennial Edition. 1. The State of Ohio. p. 816. 
The Supreme Court of Ohio makes no mention of a second t. "Jacob Burnet". The Supreme Court of Ohio & The Ohio Judicial System. 
This modern fellow makes no mention of an alternate spelling: Milligan, Fred J. (2003). Ohio's Founding Fathers. Lincoln NE: iUniverse. pp. 111–114. ISBN 0595750397. OCLC 53472872.  External link in |publisher= (help)

Although "Burnet" appears to be correct, unfortunately there are many places where his name is spelled "Burnett." They range from books of various dates [1] [2] [3] [4] to the website of the Ohio Senate [5]. Even if it's incorrect, it occurs in apparently independent sources. An interesting document that I came across while searching for him is [6]. Could that be the same Burnet(t) family? Ardric47 (talk) 00:24, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
