I am including a link to the genealogy and local history collection at the Plano Public Library. Their collection includes a photo of Letitia (Forman) Barnett. She was the wife of George W. Barnett (1819-1882). There was also a picture of the Forman home.
The collection also includes a picture of the R.W. Carpenter home, father-in-law of Ruth Donna Barnett, and the diary of Lizzie (Matthews) Carpenter.
During the Civil War James Madison Barnett served in the Texas state militia, protecting the settlers from marauding Indians and bandits. In 1931 he applied for and received from the state of Texas a pension for his service – unfortunately, he died just a month after receiving his pension.

Here are two marriages from Montague County, Texas, Marriage Records, 1873 – 1924:
Barnett, S.J. to Miss Estelle Stafford (vol. F, p. 274)
Barnette, Maggie to John S.J. Carlisle – 22 Apr 1896 (p.79)
While researching at the Family History Library I gathered some Barnett family information. There is no known relationship to the Parker County Barnetts, but I thought I would post the information here.
From the DAR Tarrant County Cemetery Records:
John W. Barnett, 1881 – 19–
Mary E. Barnett, 1886 – 1940
I just visited the Parker County, Texas GenWeb site and found, much to my delight, that Bel Wise has posted the Bible record for the Benjamin W. Kelly family. Benjamin’s daughter, Mattie, was married to James M. Barnett. http://www.rootsweb.com/~txparker/BibleRecords/KellyFamily.htm

I added family Bible pages for the James M. Barnett and James J. Barnett families. Do you have any Barnett Bible pages you would like to add?
