VI. SUSAN RUSH BURNETT LINE
"Isaac Burnett, son of Jeremiah Burnett was born Feb. 9, 1790,
and died at the age of 78 years. He married Hettie Corley who
was born Oct. 11, 1793, and died at the age of 70/ They are
buried at their old home place and graves have markers and
enclosed with an iron fence. This old place is located near the
old Elbert Devore place on Cuffeetown Creek, near the Mt. Vernon
section of Edgefield County. The old house burned several years
It was said that the old house was "haunted" by a
whistling-talking ghost. The noises came with a whistling sound
first, then talking. It usually appeared overhead in the
ceiling or out in a plum thicket near the house and would talk
with any one who happened to be there and asked questions. The
whole countryside came to hear him. He said he was not there
for any harm but would be there for six months and would go from
there to Virginia never to return.
Their daughter, Martha, came in from school one day and as she
neared the house, the ghost said, "You got a whipping at school
today." She was terribly frightened as it happened to be true.
Early one morning, he appeared and informed the family that a
neighbor had lost a horse during the night and upon
investigation found to be true. Another day, they heard him
over the hill saying, "I'm coming, I'm coming." and they thought
it was their negro boy coming to do his chores aroung the house,
but he was not around and could not be found. It was the ghost.
Among those who talked with him was the Rev. Nicholas Ware
Hodges, Baptist minister. In
conversation one day, the Rev. Hodges asked him to say "Get thee
behind me, Satan", which he did, and was never heard again,
probably went to Va. No satisfactory explanation was ever given
to clear up the unusual affair. It is referred to as the "Hant"
at the old Burnett place. " Do you know who Susan Rush Burnett
is? Thanks again, Billie Jones
