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.
