My name is Yvonne Curry. My grandmother was Charlotte Marzelle Barnett. I have been researching the Barnetts of Parker County, Texas since 1999. I see this blog as a way to organize and share some of the information I have acquired on this and other Barnett families. I welcome comments and I would love to have you share Barnett pictures and stories that you may have.

    I am wondering if the Barnetts’ that settled in Virginia and Florida are related to the Barnetts in this research?

    Thank you

    As far as I know the Barnetts of Parker County, Texas are not related to those who settled in Virginia and Florida. James M. Barnett was born in Hardeman County, Tennessee. His father, James J. Barnett, was born in Caldwell County, Kentucky, and his father, Samuel Barnett, was reportedly born in South Carolina. My research has not yet reached back that far, but I have not yet found any reference to Virginia or Florida. Good luck in the hunt for your family.

      Is this still a live blog?
      I am looking for vycurry or anyone else that has knowledge of Samuel Barnett of South Carolina. I am wondering if it’s the same Samuel Barnett that I am currently trying to research.

        Hi Simone,
        Sorry I haven’t done much with this blog for a while. I am happy to share what I know about Samuel Barnett.

    Hi Yvonne,
    I was excited to find your website with information about the Barnett family of Parker County, Texas. I am the granddaughter of LaVerne Barnett Hill (daughter of George Johnson Barnett). I have information about our branch of the family which I would be happy to share. I’ve also entered quite a bit in the “Find A Grave” website. You can see my “virtual cemetery” for the Barnetts, McNutts, and extended families (George married Lee Myrtle McNutt) at: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=62353. Look forward to hearing from you at my email address (above).

    I am a direct descendent of M.W.Barnett. The father lineage I have is as follows (from me going backwards) Kirt William, William Dixon Jr., William Dixon, Paul Barthold, Matthew William, James Johnson, Samuel, James, John – all Barnetts. I have been researching my family for a while and would love to share information with you. I have many pictures of M.W.Barnett and his wife Sarah. I have a few pictures of a couple of his sisters. I have found the cemeteries where M.W. and Samuel are buried. I can also point you to the (still standing) cabin that M.W. Barnett lived in with his wife and children as well as the land where Ox Mill cemetery sits. Thank you for posting the Bible pages and other info you have published here. Please feel free to contact me to exchange information.

  7. Douglas Q. Barnett says:

    I know this is a long shot, but here goes. I have traced my lineage back to the Samuel and Matilda Barnett family of Fork Union, Virginia. They had 12 children, most of whom I’ve been
    able to trace, but a few have just vanished! Kaput! Gone child! However, I did pick up some scuttle-but that either Woodson or Samuel of the original family made their way to Texas, and eventually prospered. I’m wondering if you know of a Samuel or Woodson Barnett who wold have settled there around the turn of the century. 1900 or so. Thank you for responding.

    • Glenna J. Barnett says:

      Hey! Cousin Douglas, this is Glenn Barnett’s daughter, Glenna from East Chicago, Indiana

      • Douglas Q. Barnett says:

        Hello Glenna! Nice to meet you. I met a Glenn Barnett from Indiana in Seattle some 30 years ago now. We had a reunion at that time and he attended with Drucilla Barnett Leachman. She was the daughter of Foster Barnett. My grandfather was Powell Benjamin Barnett, the 4th child of Samuel
        and Matilda Barnett. If any of this rings a bell with you, I’d appreciate your feedback. Cheers!

      • Douglas Q. Barnett says:

        Hi Glenna,
        Sorry to be so late in responding, but this website has not been on my radar, if you know what I mean? I did meet a Glenn Barnett about 20 years ago,but I understand he died a few years back.
        I met him at a Barnett Reunion held here in Seattle. He came out here with Drucilla Barnett Leachman,who was the daughter of Foster Barnett. Foster in turn was the brother of Powell
        Benjamin Barnett, my grandfather. Powell Benjamin and Foster Barnett were the children of
        Samuel and Matilda Barnett. They were slaves on the Point of Fork plantation in Fluvanna County,
        Virginia. The slave-owners name was James Galt! There is a lot more to be said. But I prefer
        that it be done face to face, i.e, from your email to mine. So, please contact me at my website
        which is the following: Lermontov6134@gmail.com. Hope to hear from you, soon!

    The only Samuel Barnett I know of was reportedly born in South Carolina 1784 and moved to Kentucky then to Tennesse and settled in Texas around 1849 Collin County

  9. Tracy Barnett says:

    I am the daughter of. William Dixion Barnett Jr.

  10. William Woodson says:

    There is a Woodson Barnett born in the 1800’s buried at Oak Hill Cemetary in Fluvanna County, VA not far from Fork Union, VA in Bremo Bluff, VA

  11. Barnett,Uwe says:

    My name is Uwe Barnett and I live in Berlin, Germany. Its a Interesting page.

  12. Tim Tiffin says:

    I have been researching the history of Elizabeth Vasti Barnett Stafford. In wikitree.com her profile is listed as Barnett-3255. I do believe she is from the Barnett’s in Cumberland, Tennessee who were of the three Presbyterian ministers John, William, and James Barnett from 1805-1830’s. I do believe her father Abram Barnett b.1798 was born in Mississippi. If we could work on her lineage more I would really appreciate it.

  13. Hello, I have been researching an allusive ancestor in my family tree and have run across a family of Barnett’s I’m hoping you can help me identify. My ancestor’s name was Drury Anglin, he owned close to 4,0000 acres in Collin County Texas between 1845 and1874. I found a court document dated March 8th 1880 Collin County Texas that included a Thomas B Barnett guardian of the estate of HL Barnett, Mollie A Barnett, Minnie Barnett, and Ida B Barnett minors. He is asking for permission from the court to sell real estate property of said minors belonging to the Drury Anglin Land Survey. He is saying he does not have sufficient money to support the minors. The land is mentioned to also be known as the homestead of Benjamin and Eliza McClure, other persons mentioned are JJ Thomas, wife Emily Thomas, JM and Lavinia Stothers.
    Do any of these names look familiar to you? Do you know of a connection between the Barnett’s and Anglin’s? How about the McClure’s? I have found quite a few Barnett’s along side Anglin’s in varied census through out the south and also along side the land that Drury Anglin buys and sales in Montague County Texas and Jasper Texas. Please let me know if you know of a connection between these families or if you run across one in the future, I would be very grateful! Thank you for your time.

    I have been searching for my Samuel P. Barnett ancestor for many years. He first appeared in documentation in 1830s at Port Royal, Montgomery County, TN. He was listed in 1840 and 1850 Montgomery Co., TN census records. I have him covered from the 1840s until his death in Trigg Co., KY in 1885. ANY assistance in his place of birth, his parents would be best gift ever!!

  15. Ikae Barnett Edwards says:

    My name is Ikae Barnett Edwards a descendant of Josephine McCarter Barnett and Edgar Barnett of Jasper County, TX. I have been researching my lineage since about 2000 off and on, but ready to connect dots. I know many slaves came through South Carolina from the Ivory Coast, so trying to see if I may be related to the Barnett’s of South Carolina.
