By 1850, Isham Burnett has died and Anna Burnett has moved the family to Warrensburg, Missouri. Her family owns land and her oldest sons appear to run it. On March 24, 1858 Thomas Burnett married Harriett Potts. The couple had 8 children. Harriett died in infancy and Mattie died at age three.
The family lived in Henry County and Cass County before settling in Johnson County. Thomas was a farmer by trade and also served as Justice of the Peace for several years. He died March 13, 1905 in Kingsville, Missouri and was buried in Kingsville Cemetery, Kingsville, Missouri.
