Burnett Family (Lewis & Susan)

I am trying to tie up a few loose ends and was hoping that someone may be able to assist me.

Lewis J. BURNETT ( 1853 in Louisiana to parents from South Carolina and Alabama) and his wife, Susan ( 1856 in Texas, with parents from Louisiana), settled in Waller Co. sometime around 1880. According to the 1900 census the couple had been married for 19 years (i.e. ca.1881). It is probable that this is a second marriage for Lewis (see below).

There are five known children born into this family with a possible sixth. They are as follows: Edgar ( 1875), Lucille ( 1884, m. John T. LOGGINS), Astor O. ( 1887, m.Alma (???)), Roberta ( 1889), and Defrank(?) ( 1894).

Given Edgar's reported date of birth, he is most likely the child of a previous marriage.

Lucille married John T. LOGGINS on 21 September 1902. Together they had at least two children, Lewis and John, and possibly a third that died young. According to the census John owned and operated a restaurant in Hempstead.

Astor O. married a woman named Alma around 1909. They had at least one male child, though I do not have a name, who was born circa 1911.

Finally, John's older brother William LOGGINS married a woman named Mittie BURNETT on 28 January 1900. According to the census she was born circa May 1882 and the birth state data for her parents seems to match that for a child of Lewis and Susan.

I would like to firmly establish the latter and attempt to fill in the missing generation previous and subsequent for any of these individuals. Any assistance with this endeavor will be greatly appreciated.

TIA - Herman
