James Barnett, b. 1796, South Carolina

James Barnett, Jr. was born about 1796 in South Carolina.[1]

James married Elizabeth Ledbetter on 3 Aug 1814 in Caldwell Co., Kentucky.[2] He next married Polly Satterfield on 20 Aug 1816 in Caldwell Co., Kentucky.[3]

FamilySearch and some Ancestry member trees have identified the James Barnett, Jr. of Caldwell Co., Kentucky with a James Barnett of Montgomery Co., Illinois who was reportedly born about 1796 in South Carolina. Are they indeed the same person?

Another question: there are Kentucky marriage records for James Barnett and Elizabeth Ledbetter and one for James Barnett and Polly Satterfield; are these records for the same James Barnett or is there more than one James Barnett in Caldwell Co., Kentucky?

I think more research is needed.

Sarah Barnett, b. about 1790, South Carolina, d. after 1850

Sarah Barnett (James 1) was born about 1788-1790 in South Carolina[1] and died after 1850.[2]

Sarah married David Osborn on 28 Jan 1805 in Livingston Co., Kentucky.[3] David was born between 1756 and 1774 in South Carolina and died about 1829 in Kentucky.[4]

David appeared as head of household in the Laurens District, South Carolina in the 1800 U.S. census[5] but he was in Caldwell Co., Kentucky by 1810 when he was appointed to work on a road crew.[6]  By 1815 he was serving as a Caldwell County Justice of the Peace.[7] On 16 Oct 1815 David purchased 40 acres on Hurricane Creek from Jesse Birdsong for $160[8] and on 24 Oct 1816 David and Sally Osborn sold 30 acres on Hurricane Creek for $500 to Isham E. Osborn.[9] David paid Caldwell County taxes on 100 acres on Crooked Creek in 1820, 1823 and 1824.[10] On 29 Mar 1825 the Osborns sold 71 acres on Hurricane Creek for $300 to Benjamin I. Gilman.[11] Later that year he was named along with his wife in a lawsuit by Jeremiah Rucker against the heirs of James Barnett.[12] No record of his death has been found, but his wife, Sally, appeared as head of household in the 1830 U.S. census, suggesting that he died between 1825 and 1830.[13] Included in the household were two minor males and three minor females.[14] In 1850 Sarah Osborn (age 55, born South Carolina) was listed in the census in the household of her son Charles E. Osborn in Caldwell Co., Kentucky.[15] In December of 1850, Charles Erbey and his family moved to Johnson Co., Illinois; it is not known if Sarah went with them or stayed behind in Kentucky and to date no record of her death has been found.[16]

David and Sarah (Barnett) Osborn were the parents of at least five children:

  1. Susan Osborn, b. between 1811-1815
  2. Bartholomew Osborn, b. between 1811-1815
  3. Charles Erbey Osborn, b. 1816, d. after 1870
  4. Daughter, b. between 1821-1825
  5. Mary Osborn, b. about 1826

Sarah next married Stephen Roach on 29 Jun 1833 in Caldwell Co., Kentucky.[1] No other information on this marriage has been found, but by 1850 Sarah Osborn was living with her son Charles E. Osborn.[2]

Claiborne Barnett, b. before 1786, d. about 1816, Caldwell Co., Kentucky

Claiborne Barnett was born before 1786[1] and died in Caldwell Co., Kentucky probably between 1816 when he received $10 from the estate of Brooks H. Davis and 1820 when Ruth Barnett was listed as head of household in the 1820 U.S. census in Caldwell Co., Kentucky.[2]

Claiborne married Ruth Lindsey. Ruth was born about 1795. She appeared as head of household in the 1820 and 1830 U.S. censuses in Caldwell Co., Kentucky.[3]

Claiborne and Ruth (Lindsey) Barnett may have been the parents of Isaac Barnett who was named in James Barnett’s will as a grandson.[4]

Additional research suggests that Claiborne Barnett was actually the son of Nathan Barnett and Lucy Webb of Georgia. (Mrs. Howard H. McCall, Roster of Revolutionary Soldiers in Georgia (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Publishing Company, 2010), 3: 31.)

Samuel Barnett, b. abt. 1783, South Carolina, d. after 1860, Texas

Samuel Barnett (James 1) was born about 1783-1784 in South Carolina and died after 1860 probably in Collin Co., Texas.[1]

Samuel appeared as head of household in Caldwell Co., Kentucky in 1810 and 1820.[2] Living in western Kentucky, Samuel probably experienced the chaos and destruction of the New Madrid earthquakes in 1811-1812. He may have served in the War of 1812; there is a Samuel Barnett who served in Capt. John C. Dodds’ Company, 14th Regiment, detached militia.[3] In 1815 he submitted a land claim for 400 acres of vacant land in Caldwell County on the waters of the Tennessee River and adjoining the lands of Levi Davis.[4] In 1819 he was ordered to view and mark out a road, along with Levi Davis, Richard Swor, Beamon Fowler and James Barnett, from Osburn’s ferry on the Cumberland River to Pentecost’s ferry on the Tennessee River.[5] In 1824 Samuel sold to Broady Howard 93 acres of land in Caldwell County for $100 and in 1825 he was named in a lawsuit against the heirs of James Barnett.[6]

About this time Samuel and his family left Kentucky and moved to Hardeman Co., Tennessee. He appears as head of household in the 1830 U.S. census in Hardeman County and he paid taxes there from 1826 through 1833.[7] He paid only a poll tax so he apparently did not own property while he lived there. In 1833 Samuel and his family probably experienced one of the largest meteor showers ever seen; eyewitnesses described it as the sky being on fire and many people feared it was the end of the world. By 1840 Samuel had again moved south and he appears as head of household in the 1840 U.S. census in Marshall Co., Mississippi.[8]

By 1850 the family had again moved on and had now settled in Texas. Samuel appears as head of household in the 1850 U.S. census in Limestone Co., Texas and in the 1860 U.S. census in Collin Co., Texas.[9] In 1851 Samuel Barnett paid taxes on one negro valued at $700 and he also appeared in the 1850 Slave Schedule as having one 11-year-old male slave.[10] In 1860 Samuel was 77 years old and he was not found in the 1870 U.S. census, so he probably died between 1860 and 1870 in Collin County.

Samuel married Sarah Goheen or Gheen, daughter of James Goheen, Jr. and Mary Pinkston, on 19 May 1810 in Caldwell Co., Kentucky.[11] Sarah was born about 1790 in North Carolina and died after 1860 probably in Collin Co., Texas.[12] 

Sarah appeared by name in both the 1850 and 1860 U.S. censuses[13] and she is probably the adult female who appears in the Samuel Barnett households in 1810 through 1840.[14]

Samuel and Sarah (Goheen) Barnett were the parents of nine children:

  1. Hiram J. Barnett, b. about 1811, d. after 1860
  2. James J. Barnett, b. 1812, d. 1880
  3. John W. Barnett, b. about 1814
  4. Francis Austin Barnett, b. 1816, d. 1884
  5. George Washington Barnett, b. 1819, d. 1882
  6. Nancy Selina Barnett, b. about 1825, d. before 1879
  7. Evaline Barnett, b. about 1826, d. about 1875/1876
  8. Malinda E. Barnett, b. about 1829, d. 1866
