George William Burnett 1811-1877, married Sudney Ann Younger 1817-1907 in 1831, Liberty, MO. They had eight children, whom they raised in Oregon, where they had located as early as 1845. Sidney was an aunt to the Younger Brothers.
The Younger Brothers sister, Laura married William H. Kelly 1825-1890 and they had four children. Will was a freighter and owned his own blacksmith shop. In 1850 he was a grocer and from all accounts seems to have been an honest man. He also served in the Civil War and by 1880 was farming in Bates county, MO. This Kelly family was recorded as living in Jackson, Cass and Bates counties from 1850 until 1924 when Laura died.
