      Three Burnett brothers (Jesse, Thomas and Joseph) are known to have been living in Rutherford County, North Carolina, during the Revolutionary War.  Thomas and Joseph were both killed on October 7, 1780, the day of the Battle of Kings Mountain just across the border with South Carolina.  Because of conflicting accounts of their actions at the time, the question arises - Were the Burnett brothers Patriots or Loyalists?
