This portrait has my 3x great-grandmother, 3x great-grandfather, and their first 3 children. Robert was an upholsterer. Andrew appears to have died in childhood. Ann would later marry Thomas Pattenden and emigrate to Australia. Hugh was a British dragoon for 10 years. Hugh and younger brother John Burnett were in the American Civil War. John Burnett kept diaries of his years in the Civil War and they are in the Sioux City Museum in Sioux City, Iowa. David, another younger brother, was possibly estranged from the family and lived his final years in San Francisco as a college librarian. Another younger sister, Jane, married Antonio Bellatti. Antonio died three years after marrying Jane. Jane also emigrated to Australia. I am the 2x great-granddaughter of John Burnett Belfrage.
