Hi Mary,
I'm not sure how finding descendants will prove that Williamson Burnett was a son of Godfrey and Emasa Burnett.
Here's what I found.

In 1850 the Burnett family was living in Henderson, North Carolina.
Godfrey Burnett, b. NC, 60, farmer.
Emasa, wife, b. NC, 55.
J. R., [presumably son], b. NC, 27, laborer.
Polly, b. NC, 25.
Rhoda, b. NC, 19.
Martha, b. NC, 17.
Manerva, b. NC, 6.
Williamson, b. NC, 12.
Elen, b. NC, 10.
Missouri, dau, b. NC, 7.

Williamson Godfrey Burnett
Born: NC abt. 1840
Residence: San Leandro, Alameda Co., CA
Occupation: merchant
Source: California Voters Registers 10/23/1872.

Williamson Godfrey Burnett
Born: abt. 1840, NC
Occupation: Wood Worker
Residence: San Leandro, Alamada Co.
Source: California Voters Registers, 1879.

In 1880 the family was living in Eden, Alameda, CA.
William Burnett, b. NC, 38, carpenter.
Alice, wife, b. MO, 28.
Ethel, b. CA, 6.
Joseph, b. CA, 3.
Ernest, b. CA, 10/12ths.
Maria de J. Avela, servant.

In 1900 the family was living in Eden.
Williamson Burnett, head, b. NC Sept. 1840, carpenter, marr 27 yrs.
Alice, wife, b. MO, June 1852, had six children who were all alive in 1900.
Frank, b. CA July 1882, single.
Oscar, b. CA April 1884.
Chester, b. CA July 1887.
Leslie, son, b. CA, Jan. 1889.

I looked for Williamson and Alice's death info in Alameda and San Francisco counties but didn't find it. Those dates would be very helpful because then you could order their obituaries.

In 1910 most of the family is living in San Francisco Dist. 38, San Fran., CA.
Ethel Burnett, head, b. CA, 34, single, millinery shop.
Joseph H., brother, b. CA, 32, single, machinist shop.
Frank G., bro, b. CA, 27, single, machinist shop.
Oscar P., bro, b. CA, 26, single, machine shop foreman.
Chester W., bro, b. CA, 22, machinist shop.
Leslie C., bro, b. CA, 21, single, machinist shop.
Beckie Silvey, lodger.

In 1920 some of the family is living in San Fran Dist. 38.
Ethel Burnett, head, divorced, b. CA, 46.
Oscar, bro, b. CA, 36, div.
Leslie, bro, b. CA, 30, single.
Marjorie Bartholemew, boarder.
