"Burt was born in Petersham, Worcester County, Massachusetts, June 13, 1792, on his father's farm. He is from Scottish and English ancestry, since his parents immigrated to America in 1639". This has to be an error. Dale S Fay 8 December 2010 —Preceding undated comment added 14:55, 8 December 2010 (UTC).

Can you give me more detail as to why you feel this is wrong. Then perhaps I can fix it.--Doug Coldwell talk 15:44, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

How could his parents immigrate in 1639 if his year of birth was 1792? Dale S Fay 16 February 2012 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dale S Fay (talkcontribs) 21:08, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Corrected. Should be "ancestors".--Doug Coldwell talk 21:38, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
