Are you certain that there was not a Suzanne Burnett living in that period?  I have found some records that could be for this profile so I believe that this is just a case of someone who happened to have the same name as you.

Do you have plans to add those records Dale? It is an Unsourced and Orphaned profile after all.
Not at this time. I have more important thing to do right now and do not want to try and sort this out at this time. I am actually reducing my watchlist and cutting back on WikiTree for a while.
Tony, Let me rephrase my comment above, I have no special interest in the profile listed and with Holiday plans along with just moving I have limited time to do much on here. I was simply pointing out that names are reused all the time and one should not assume that just because the name is the same that it is representing the same person. I am refocusing my goals for genealogy and thus reducing my watchlist along with my participation on this site. Too many errors have crept in, I am not blaming WikiTree, and I am going to focus on finding the correct information along with better sources and building a better tree offline. At that time I may try to fix those problems on the profiles here but this process is easier if I do not have to worry about possible changes making things worse on over 3000 profiles.

I did find several possible sources for people with that name in the right time frame, but I do not wish to do the research needed to be certain that those sources would apply to that profile.
Was only meant as light hearted wiki humor, Dale. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
