It is believed that many of the Barnetts in the Gowansville area were descended from one Randall (or Randel or Randle) Barnett. It is believed that he was born in Spartanburg County about 1785, 1786, or 1787, was a farmer, and moved to the Gowansville area about 1828. It is believed that he had only one arm.
It is believed that, about 1804 or 1805, he married Phereby (sometimes Pheaby or Pharibee, but usually Phereby) Dillard, who was born about 1791, in or near the City of Augusta, Georgia, the daughter of Joseph Dillard and Priscilla Wilkins. Elizabeth Farmer's notes indicate that her name was Martha Dillard, and James T. Barnett reports that his mother, Cora Clement Barnett, also said that her name was Martha. Perhaps she had both names.
There will be found, on p. 170 of the Reid book, a list of the children of Joseph Dillard and Priscilla Wilkins, including Phereby. One of them, Samuel Dillard, married Elizabeth Reid, Reuben Reid's sister. Another, Lucretia, married James Reid, Reuben's brother.
Lorene Fisher's materials indicate that Randall was shown on the Spartanburg County Census in 1810, but this has not been confirmed. She also says that he is shown in the 1820 Spartanburg County census, and a search of that census report shows a Randolph Barnett in Spartanburg County, page 261.
If this Randolph Barnett is to be identified as the same as Randall Barnett (and such will be assumed), then the family at that time consisted of: one male, between 26 and 45 (possibly Randall, who would have been about 35); one male, under age 10 (possibly John, who would have been about 8 or 9); one female, between 26 and 45 (possibly Martha Phereby, who would have been about 29); two females, ages 10 to 16 (possibly Martha, who would have been about 13, and Priscilla, who would have been about 11); and four females, under ten years (possibly Jemima, who would have been about 7; Lucinda, who would have been about 5; Sarah, who would have been about 2; and Mary, who would perhaps have been less than one year old).
Lorene also believes that Randall was a member of the Goucher Creek Baptist Church at one time. There is a reference to a Randolph Barnett (believed to be the same person) in the minutes of that Church on June 15, 1822.
One Randal Barnett has been found in the Greenville County Census in 1830 (Roll 280, Page 1), so he apparently moved into Greenville County between 1820 and 1830 (his obituary indicates a date of about 1828). By 1831, and perhaps prior thereto, he was a member of Cross Roads Baptist Church (name changed in 1875 to Gowansville Baptist Church).
He is found in Greenville County in the 1840 census (page 207).
The 1850 Census for Greenville County (page 385, in dwelling 1008, next to Dr. Simon Lister, who resided in dwelling 1009) shows the family as follows: Randel Barnett, 63, male; Pherebe, 59; Elender, 15 female; and James, male, 5.
Elizabeth Farmer's notes indicate that he owned about 80 acres of land near Glassy Mountain. This is confirmed by probate records.
It is believed that Randall died on December 1, 1851 (some report July 7, 1851). An obituary notice has been found in The Southern Patriot magazine bearing this out. It is believed that he was buried in the cemetery of Glassy Mountain Baptist Church, but no marked stone for him has yet been found.
The 1860 Census for Greenville County, Gowansville Township (#231), shows a Faribee Barnett, 69 years of age, born in Georgia; a female named Elander Barnett, 25; another female named Phebe L., age 8 (uncertain who this is), and another female, Mary, age 6 (uncertain who this is; could she be the daughter of Lucinda, mentioned in (B)(V) below?).
In March of 1861 (see Greenville County Probate Court File 25/27), James Barnett (believed to have been James Madison Barnett) and T. A. Campbell filed a Petition in the Probate Court, asking that the eighty acres of land belonging to the decedent Randall Barnett (being therein described as "a tract situated on branches of Middle Tyger River, adjoining John Campbell, T. B. Reid, O'Hara Barton and others, containing eighty acres, more or less") be sold and that the heirs have their distributive shares. Apparently, a hearing was held on February 3, 1862, and all heirs consented to the sale; however, there is no Report of Sale in the records. These records are important for showing the heirs of the decedent.
Martha Phereby Dillard Barnett died on December 29, 1862, and was probably also buried in Glassy Mountain Baptist Church. No marked stone for her has yet been found, but her estate was probated in the Probate Court for Greenville County in 1863 (File 22/34). James Barnett (believed to have been James Madison Barnett) was the Administrator of her Estate.
Oral and other information, including the probate records mentioned above, indicate that Randall Barnett and Martha Phereby Dillard had thirteen children.
Some Descendants of Randall Barnett
(I) Martha Barnett. It is believed that she was born about 1806-7 and married Reuben Reid, who was born about 1799-1800. It may be that they were married about 1820. One of Grady Howard's letters seems to indicate that Reuben and Alexander (mentioned below) were brothers; this is confirmed by the Reid book.
Note: Reuben Reid was the son of Thomas Reid (born 1770, Virginia) and Judith (Judy) Bryant (born 1770, Spartanburg County, daughter of William Bryant and Sarah Tolleson); the information set forth subsequently in Chapter 7, page , will indicate that a William Barnett married Mary "Aunt Polly" Bryant; this Judy Bryant, mother of Reuben Reid, was a sister of Mary "Aunt Polly" Bryant. This Thomas Reid was the son of a Willliam Reid (1740-1793) and Jane Mitchell; they married about 1764. (There was another William Reid, Sr., born about 1768, died in May, 1855, at age 87 while a resident of Spartanburg District [formerly resided in Union District].) A sister of this Thomas Reid, Mary Reid, married Ignatious Few, of Spartanburg. The children of Thomas Reid and Judy Bryant are set out in the Reid book, beginning at p. 11.
The family is shown in the 1850 Greenville County Census (page 350, dwelling 641, family 641), as follows: Reuben Reid, 50; Martha Reid, 43; Alfred Reid, 20; Lucinda Reid, 18; Charlotte Reid, 16; Joseph Reid, 14; Madison Reid, 13; Rebecca Reid, 9; Elizabeth Wootten, 5; and William Wooten, 3. Thomas, Randall, Mary, William and Lucretia are not show, probably because they were either grown and married or, in the case of Lucretia, had died.
It is believed that Martha died about 1850-1851 (based on the assumption that she predeceased her father), and was buried in Glassy Mountain Baptist Church, in a grave now unmarked. The probate records mentioned above show that she was not living at the time the Petition was dated, March 28, 1861. Reuben is thought to have died after 1880. If the "Elizabeth" shown in the 1860 Census is a lady (and wife) other than Martha, then it would appear that Reuben remarried after Martha's death, and that the remarriage took place before 1860; thus, Martha must have died sometime earlier.
Assuming this to be the case, the family is shown in the 1860 Greenville County Census, Gowansville Post Office, dwelling 233, family 200, as: Reuben Reid, 61; Elizabeth, 48; Elizabeth, 14 (Wootten, no doubt); and William, 12 (again, Wootten.).
(II) Priscilla (or Percilla) Barnett. It is believed that she was born on July 18, 1809 (James' records say about 1811, the 1850 Census records indicate about 1813) and married Alexander Reid, who was born March 24, 1809.
The family is shown in the 1850 Census of Greenville County as follows (page 361, dwelling 645, family 645): Alexander Reid, 37; Percilla Reid, 37; Sarah Reid, 18; Jemima Reid, 17; Martha Reid, 16; John Reid, 13; Mary Reid, 10; William Reid, 8; James Reid, 6; and Caroline Reid, 3. A complete list of their children is given in the Reid book, pp. 19 and 163.
It may be that the family is shown in the 1860 Census of Greenville County, Gowansville Post Office, about page 395, dwelling 323, family 285, next-door to Dr. Simon A. Lister.
Alexander died on August 26, 1894 and Priscilla died on May 14, 1896. It is thought that they were buried in graves now unmarked in Glassy Mountain cemetery. As mentioned above, there is the statement by Grady Howard that Alexander and Reuben were brothers. According to one of Grady Howard's letters, Alexander had a daughter, Sarah Reid (born June 27, 1832, died January 7, 1909, buried in Inman Baptist Church), who married Andrew Jackson Young. They had a son John Young, born 1855, but no record of who he married. Apparently, Priscilla and Alexander Reid are the ancestors of Dr. James L. Reid, who, Grady says, "...is the best at research, genealogical research, of anyone that I have ever met." At one time, Dr. Reid lived at 730 Walnut Hill Road, Campobello, SC 29322. For more on Alexander Reid's children and grandchildren, see p. 19 ff of the Reid book and Chap. 27(B)(III) of The Lanford-Lister Connection.
(III) John Barnett. Some lists (those of James T. Barnett and Elizabeth Farmer) do not show any son by this name, but he is shown in the probate records. Lorene's material and the Reid book indicate that he was born on September 9, 1813. This seems to be confirmed by the 1820 Spartanburg census and the 1850 Greenville census.
Uncertainty surrounds his marital status; Lorene thinks he was married at least twice and that both of these women were named Nancy. Their exact dates of birth have not been learned. The first Nancy was born about 1814 (1850 Census). There was another Nancy listed as his wife in the 1880 Census, but she could not have been the mother of all the children, for she was listed as having been born in 1830, and John's oldest child was born in 1838. The death certificates for three of the children show a mother named Nancy, with three different family names; Butler, Peace and Evans. Another child's death certificate lists mother as unknown. Consequently, there is some uncertainty here.
The 1850 census report for Greenville County (p. 385, dwelling 1006, family 1006) shows the family as follows: John Barnett, 37, male; Nancy, 36, female; William, 12, male; Sarah, 11, female; Josiah, 7 male; John, 3, male; and Nancy, 1, female.
Although it is possible, this is probably not the John Barnett who witnessed Dr. Simon A. Lister's will (Probate File 27/25, Greenville County).
According to Lorene's material, John, then about 70 years old, of near Holly Springs, died May 6, 1883 (she has an obituary notice from The Spartanburg Herald; probably buried in Holly Springs in unmarked grave).
Here, according to current information (Lorene and the Reid book), are the children of John and Nancy Barnett:
(1) William Barnett. He was born about 1838 (1850 Census). Lorene thinks he is the same as the Wm. Barnett shown in the 1860 Census, Mount Lebanon Township, 22 years old, male laborer, wife Nancy, age 35 (Lorene thinks it should be 25).
(2) Sarah Jane Barnett. She was born on April 12, 1840 (age 11 on 1850 Census). She married John Gowan Clayton, born August 8, 1839; he was the son of Solomon Clayton and Nancy Brashears and was a farmer, living in Beech Springs Township. (Could this Solomon Clayton be the "S. Clayton" with whom Telemachus Tinsley had a disagreement, in 1861? See Chapter 6(B) From Totomoi To Tyger River, revised 1992.) Sarah died on May 4, 1918 and John died on January 18, 1930. Sarah's death certificate (copy furnished by Lorene) shows that she was buried in Holly Springs by Wood. Same for John Gowan Clayton (he died on January 18, 1930, according to his death certificate, buried by Wood).
(3) Josiah Barnett. He was shown as age 3 on 1850 Census, but this is probably wrong or possibly misread; Reid book says 1843). Lorene credits Dr. James L. Reid with supplying the information that Josiah died on April 20, 1862, in or near Charleston, SC, while serving in the War Between The States. His place of burial has not been learned.
(4) John Barnett. He was born about 1847 (age 3 on 1850 Census). Nothing else has been learned of him.
(5) Nancy Ellen (Nan) (Ellie) Barnett. She was born on November 20, 1850, according to her death certificate, 1851 according to the stone. She was one year old on the 1850 Census and was 73 on the death certificate, and her mother was listed as Nancy Evans. She, on January 7, 1924, was buried in Holly Springs, Floyd having the arrangements.
(6) Louisa (Lou) Barnett. According to her death certificate she was born on July 4, 1851 (1854 according to the 1880 Census, July 1853 according to the 1900 Census) and her mother was Nancy Butler. She died on January 31, 1929 and was buried in Holly Springs (unmarked) by Jones McAfee of Greenville. Apparently, she died while living at 32 7th Street, Woodside, with Alice Grogan Hardin.
According to Lorene's notes, Lou was a tiny little woman of medium height, skinny, weighed about 90 pounds, about five foot six inches in height. She had blue eyes, light hair turned gray. According to the 1900 Census, there was, residing in her household, a boarder, James A. Reid, aged 17 years. Lorene thinks he was just a hired hand.
(7) Randall Barnett. This particular Randall was born on August 24, 1856; according to mortuary records (Petty), he was the son of John Barnett and Nancy Peace. The 1900 Census report says that he was born in July 1856. He married Lillian (Lydia) A. Lindsey (born about February 1854 - age 46 on 1900 Census).
He was born and raised in Greenville County and moved to Spartanburg about 1905. The exact date of Lydia's death has not been learned, but Randall's obituary states that she predeceased him by sixteen years, so her death was about 1914. Her burial place has not been located, but it could be in Holston, unmarked. At the time of his death, Randall was a member of Converse Baptist Church.
Randall died on July 23, 1930, at the home of his granddaughter (Fletcher's daughter Sunie) Mrs. Blanch M. Suddeth, of paralysis (probably brought on by a stroke), after one week's illness. Funeral services were held at Holston, conducted by Revs. W. L. Smith and R. R. Brady. He (according to the obituary) was buried in the church cemetery (no stone has been found, but it could be unmarked), and was survived by three sons and two daughters, mentioned below, and twenty grandchildren. His death notice was in the July 26, 1930 issue of The Greenville News, and the July 25, 1930 issue of the Spartanburg Herald. Petty had the arrangements.
(IV) Jemima Barnett. It is believed that this name is also given as Gemima and that she was born on September 9, 1813. On January 1, 1833, she married Thomas A. Campbell, the ceremony being performed by S. R. Whitten, Esq. He was possibly her first cousin, assuming that he is the son of John Richard "Dickey" Campbell and Virginia "Jenny" Barnett; on the other hand, Virginia may not be Randall's sister, but may be the daughter of a Richard Barnett. Jemima died on December 27, 1888. Her husband predeceased her, dying on August 14, 1874.
(V) Lucinda Barnett. It is believed that she was born about 1815 and married Ervin (or Irwin, Ervine or Irvine) Saunders (or Sanders), who was born about 1816 (James' records say about 1813). At the time her father's estate was settled, Lucinda was deceased and her heirs were believed to have been; Marcus, born about 1838; Jonas; John Simpson, born about 1847; James, born about 1847, possibly a twin to John Simpson; Ann, born about 1849 (omitted on some lists, not shown in the probate records); Scott, born about 1849 (another twin? omitted on some lists, not shown in the probate records); Amelia A., born about 1851; Jesse, born about 1853; Mary, born about 1854; Thomas, born about 1857; Gabriel, born about 1858 (omitted on some lists, not shown in probate records); and Robert, born about 1859 (omitted on some lists, not shown in probate records). All of them, except Marcus, were, according to the probate records, minors.
(VI) Sarah L. Barnett. It is believed that she was born about 1818 (James' records say about 1817) and married Fielding C. Dobbins (born about 1809). The family is shown in the 1860 Census for Greenville County, Gowansville Post Office, page 391, dwelling 232, family 199, as follows: Fielding Dobbins, 50; Sarah L., 42; Henry, 16; Benjamin, 14; Nancy, 11; Willis, 9; Malissa, 6; and Martha, 3. (Another child, reported on p. 166 of the Reid book, was James, born in 1840; he was probably grown and married by the 1860 census.)
There is an additional item concerning the son Benjamin, mentioned above. Lorene has located his Death Certificate, and it shows that he was born on August 2, 1845, the son of F. C. Dobbins and Sarah Barnett, and was a farmer. He died on October 27, 1925 in Beech Springs Township of Spartanburg County, of heart disease. He was buried on October 28, 1925, by John D. Wood, of Greer, but the name of the cemetery is not clear; it appears to be Nelson, or something of that sort. The informer was D. W. Dobbins, of Route 1, Taylors, SC.
Lorene has also located the Death Certificate for Martha, also mentioned above. The exact date of her birth was not stated, but it must have been about 1856 or 1857. She was a housewife, and apparently married a Compton, but was widowed. She died of apoplexy on February 27, 1920, at home, 40 McBeth Street, Monaghan Ward, in Greenville Township of Greenville County, and was buried on February 29, 1920 in Pleasant Hill cemetery by J. F. Mackey & Sons. The informant was J. B. Compton, of Greenville, SC.
(VII) Mary Elizabeth Barnett. It is believed that she was born about 1820 (James's records say about 1819) and married Elihu (or Elisha) Griffin, born about 1818. There are indications that they moved to Alabama, and the Reid book (p. 166) reports that they had two children, Abner T. Griffin, born in 1835, and Elihu Griffin, Jr., born in 1838.
(VIII) James Madison Barnett. He was born December 27, 1822. He married Rosanna (or Rosa) Dill, and much more information on him is given later.
(IX) William M. Barnett. He was born on January 8, 1825 married Phereby (or Theraby) Bryant (or Briant, born about 1828 or 1829), and died on October 31, 1878. He is shown as a son in the probate records.
The 1850 Census report for Greenville County (p. 381, dwelling 939, family 939) possibly refers to this family in this fashion: William Barnett, 24, male; and Phenba (must be Phereby), 21, female.
The 1860 Census for Greenville County, Gowansville Post Office, possibly refers to the family in dwelling 237, family 204, as follows: William Barnett, 35; Feriba (?), 29; Berryman, 9; Mary Ann, 6; Francis A., 4; Martha, 11 months; and Dorcas Briant, 65 (uncertain who this is, possibly and in-law).
Lorene's notes show three children of the marriage; a son named Gazaway, a son named Luther, and a daughter named Martha. There may be others, as suggested by the 1860 Census. Very few dates have been learned.
It now seems likely that the Francis A. Barnett mentioned above in the 1860 census is the same person referred to as F. A. Barnett in a death certificate among Lorene's papers. That certificate indicates that F. A. Barnett was born on April 24, 1956 (must be 1856), that he was married (name of wife not stated), and was a farmer and blacksmith in Campobello. He last worked at his trade in September, 1928, and died on September 23, 1930, at age 74. His father is stated as William Barnett and his mother as Feriby Bryant. He was buried in Gramling on September 24, 1930, by Seawright, and the informer was Mrs. F. H. Barnett. Note: the name of the decedent appears to have been, originally, "F. H. Barnett", but someone rounded the left upper arm of the "H" over to the right upper arm, so that the "H" has become an "A". Perhaps the same person wrote Mrs. F. H. Barnett's name, but forgot to round the "H" in her name to "A" when he (or she) discovered the error in the decedent's name?
Though the matter is not free of doubt, it seems likely that the Luther referred to here is the same Luther referred to in an article in The Carolina Spartan, dated May 12, 1866 (copy received from Anne McCuen and Lorene B. Fisher). If these two Luthers are indeed to be identified, then Luther was born about 1865 and the family lived in the New Prospect area. His sister Martha married Oliver Hester and they (Martha and Oliver) had at least one child, born about the first of 1885.
This Oliver Hester was born about 1863, and, while a boy, was severely injured by a team running away with a wagon up Church Street (probably Spartanburg), throwing him out. According to the article, he had been taken to Sheriff Gentry's, where he remained for several weeks.
According to the article, on Sunday morning, May 11, 1886, Oliver Hester was disciplining (whipping) his small child, who was about a year and a half old. Luther, apparently a witness, disapproved of the whipping and "remonstrated" with Oliver; told him he shouldn't whip a small child that way. Oliver, apparently, didn't appreciate the advice and one word led to another. Finally, Oliver picked up a tongue plow lying near him in the yard and threw it at Luther; it struck Luther on the side of the head, above and to the rear of the ear, causing death. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Oliver, but, at press time, he had not been apprehended. (Nowadays, his defense at his trial would be that he was mentally injured by the fall from the wagon, years earlier.)
Gazaway married Edna Loftis (this was her first marriage; she later married Hugh McDowell, no children, then married Zebe Solesbee, no children). He is supposed to be buried at New Prospect Baptist Church cemetery, in an unmarked grave.
According to Lorene's research, Gazaway had four children, as follows:
(1) Claude C. Barnett. About the only thing reported is that he was born on November 26, 1892, married Docia (or Docie) McAbee, and died about one year after his sister Dovie (who died June 30, 1935; he is not the Claud Vestus Barnett whose obituary appears in the May 13, 1938 issue of The Greenville News). One of Lorene's notes indicates that he died on June 12, 1936, at age 43, in the VA Hospital in Columbia. The death certificate indicates that his wife was surviving.
(2) Calvin Barnett. It is reported that he had a family and moved and died in Illinois.
(3) Corrie (or Carrie) Summie Barnett. She was born about 1895 and married Boyd McAbee, the son of Frank McAbee. Corrie died on August 24, 1980, at age 85 and was buried in New Prospect. Apparently, at that time, Boyd was living at 16 A Street in Inman.
(4) Dovie Barnett. She was born on August 19, 1897 and married Homer Henry Harrill (son of William R. Harrill [born April 7, 1859, died April 10, 1940] and Martha Susan Wilson [born June 6, 1860, died April 6, 1937]; both buried in Zion Hill Baptist Church). It is believed that Dovie died on June 30, 1935, and was buried in New Prospect between her parents, unmarked. Homer is buried in Roselawn, Inman.
(X) Agnes M. Barnett. She is believed to have been born on April 14, 1827, and, on January 18, 1844, to have married Capt. John P. Moon (brother of James T. Moon, who married Agnes' niece, Lucinda Reid, see Section [B][I], page , above), born December 15, 1822, son of William H. Moon, Jr. and Cynthia Walker. Capt. John P. Moon is mentioned on p. 10 of Mann Batson's book in connection with the O'Neal area. The Moon Family Bible is (or was) owned by Mrs. Annie Moon Turner Kendrick, of Greer (see Chapter 24[B][III], The Lanford-Lister Connection), and it seems likely that her father, James C. (Jim) Moon was a descendant (perhaps a grandson) of this marriage, but the precise line has not yet been learned.
The data in Lorene's notes, from the Moon Family Bible, seem to indicate that the following children were born of this marriage: Frances Jane Moon, born December 11, 1844; Elinder Angaline Moon, born July 8, 1846; Rebecca Adaline Moon, born October 21, 1848, died January 4, 1963; Louisa Jones Moon, born August 12, 1850; Malinda Caroline Moon, born on February 29, 1852, died January 13, 1859; John Walker Moon, born January 1, 1855, married Susan Caroline Burch (born June 13, 1857, the wedding taking place on April 25, 1878; John Walker Moon died on February 14, 1927); Susan Elizabeth Moon, born December 24, 1856; James Randal Moon, born September 2, 1859; Narcissa Moon, born July 18, 1861; Thomas Henry Moon, born February 24, 1864, died November 16, 1864; Sintha Moon, born September 22, 1865; and William Henry Moon, born June 29, 1868, died September 2, 1914.
Agnes died on December 4, 1881, and John P. Moon died on February 22, 1897. Both were buried in Pleasant Hill cemetery.
(XI) Delila (or Delily) Barnett. It is believed that she was born about 1828 or 1829, married William Peace, and lived in or near Spartanburg. (Could she be identified with the Tela Barnett who married a William Peace? They were the parents of Emma, who married Robert Good; Emma's funeral was hendled by Petty's Mortuary.)
(XII) Elvira Barnett. It is believed that she was born about 1830/1, and is the same person referred to in the Dill book as Elenora. She married Elijah Henson (born about 1828/9); they became the parents of Fleming (Fleming or B. F.) Henson, who married Easter Frances Lister, and William Martin (Bill) Henson. See the referenced material for additional information about B. F. Henson's family. Other children, reported on p. 168 of the Reid book, were Rufus Elijah Henson, born 1858, married Lou Anna Dill, James Randall Henson, born 1861, who married Lula Hightower, and John Luther Henson, born 1866, who married Ella Dill. (For some additional information on the family background of Elijah Henson, see p. 567 of volume 1 of Alvin's work.)
The 1850 census report for Greenville County (p. 382, dwelling 962, family 962) shows the family as follows: Elijah Henson, 21, male; Elvira, 19, female; and Fleming, 1, male.
The 1860 Census for Greenville County, Gowansville Post Office, dwelling 393, family 328, shows the family as follows: Elijah Henson, 32; Elvira, 28; Berryman F., 10 (this must be Fleming); William, 5; and Rufus, 1.
(XIII) Elender (or Elinder) Barnett. She was born, it is believed, about 1835 and married Albert Calvin Farmer (this particular Farmer has not yet been more particularly identified; however, see the note, in Appendix C, page , concerning a Calvin Farmer who was the son of Joshua Farmer).
The 1850 Census for Greenville County, #1004, shows the family as Calvin Farmer, 24, laborer, Louiser, 24 (could this be Elender? probably not), and Malinda, 5.
The 1860 Census for Greenville County (dwelling 338, family 295) shows a Calvin Farmer, 34, and Louisa, 34. This is apparently the same family mentioned above, but it seems unlikely that this is the family of Elender Barnett.
According to p. 170 of the Reid book, Elender died on September 15, 1888.
(XIV) Jones Barnett. There is no such son as this shown on Lorene Fisher's list or in the probate records. One note suggests that he might be a grandson, rather than a son. It might be that his true name was James, not Jones. It is believed by James T. Barnett that he was born about 1845 and married Feraloy Dillard
