Death of C.L. Burnett
The death summons which has been expected for some time came to C.L. Burnett last Friday evening about 10:00. For years he has been a sufferer from disease contracted during the war and has hardly known what it is to be a well man. His funeral was held from the residence Sunday afternoon, conducted by Union Lodge No. 70 I.O.O.F. and was largely attended.
Deceased was born In Des Moines county, Iowa, February 2, 1844. In 1802 (one obviously a misprint) he enlisted in Company K, 25th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, serving three months and participating in the battles of Arkansas Post, Chicasaw Bayou and Champion Hills. He was taken sick and sent to Memphis, where he remained three months and was then returned to his regiment taking part in the battles of Chattanooga, Lookout Mountains and Mission Ridge. He was detailed as scout under General Logan, going to Savannah and Petersburg. He was mustered out of the service at Washington, then returned to Des Moines county, where he remained until 1871, when he came to Red Oak. Mr. Burnett was married in 1866 to Miss Josie Orchard, of Des Moines county, by whom he had two children, Ella, deceased, born 1867 and Robert, born 1869. He has served Red Oak in an official capacity at various times and for
a year past was acting as Deputy United States Marshal under Marshall D. B. Miller.
