I am looking for anyone researching the BURNETT family, originally from Clatt, Aberdeenshire, later in Elora, Wellington County, Ontario. Alexander BURNETT married Jean SANGSTER in Clatt in 1828. Children born in Clatt whose records I have found are:

John, 1831
James, 1833
George, 1836

Then in Salem, Wellington County, Ontario:

Robert Francis, 1854

Further records I have found show Robert Francis Burnett married Susannah Weir and their son Sandy (Alexander) was born in Elora in 1894. In 1896 an Alexander Pearce Burnett was born in Elora to John Barron Burnett and Jessie Veitch. I don't know if this is the same John who was born in Clatt or someone unrelated.

Family members recall Alexander and Jean as having 10 or 12 children and remember one was named Edward. I'd like to talk to anyone researching this family.
