I could go on, but honestly I would like to verify that this information is correct through DNA. Is there anyone else on here that is related to this Barnett \ Bernard family? I would love to compare with you. It's great to be able to find new family. I know I can't exactly be linked according to Y-DNA since I'm not a male Barnett, but hopefully my mtDNA will show that we are related. Thanks for allowing me to join the Barnett Group. I look forward to linking with my Cousins on here. Blessings and hugs, Jenny Gaulding Low

James Wright...I am a decedent of John Barnett & Katherine Farrar..Son Edward Barnett married a Martha Lewis and moved to Spartenburg SC area. Their daughter, Jane Barnett married John Cantwell and ended up in TN. What is interesting is that my haplogroup H7a1a traces me to an exact match to someone in SC with there ancestor being a Wright.

Ross Barnett, who was this Barnett individual that is J M 172 at Y 111? Is he on the Barnette Y-DNA tree on I have checked the project listing and did not see anyone other than Thomas Roderick Wright that would be JM-172. Not that many Barnett’s at Big Y or Y111. If there is a Barnett at JM-172, it could well be a 4 or 5 GGF missing link!

Looking for any information on William Barnett, who was born in Ireland c.1804 and is found in Manchester, Lancashire, from 1826 onwards, when he married Ellen HARDMAN. The family remained in Manchester. My descent is through William and Ellen's son James who married Emma Owen in 1850, their son John who married Mary Cummins in 1873, their son Frederick who married Mary WILKIN in Hartlepool, County Durham, in 1913, and their daughter Olga. Any connections eagerly anticipated!!

Interesting tidbit from the court documents for Franklin county, Virginia, 1786-1789, a "John Barnett" was convicted for being a horse thief on 30 Aug 1786 and was still in jail in Dec of same year. Not sure what happened after that or who he may be related to.

I have a new Barnett that has come up in my Y-DNA and I can find nothing about him anywhere. He is listed as Jesse Barnett b. 1777 and d. 1818. No place of birth or death is given. My most distant confirmed relative is John Barnett born about 1770 and d. around 1745 in Pulaski County, MO. He married a Nancy b. 1780 in SC and she died after 1850 in Camden County, MO. My John Barnett is DNA matched to several Barnard's, Jacob, b. 1780, d. 1821, possibly in Ireland, Zadock his brother, b. 1779 in Ireland. Several other Barnard's match as well. This Jessie Barnett b. 1777 is the only other Barnett in my Y-DNA so he is of great interest. Does anybody have any information about him?

Hi Ralph, I descend from Joseph Barnett (Barnard) born 1800 in KY and died before 1850 in Saline County IL. In 1820, he lived next door to David Barnett Sr. who had sons and one was named Zadock. Not sure how Joseph and David Sr. are related but they must be. Do you know Lynn Barnett from W. Frankfort? He is from this group of Barnetts as well and he is waiting on his DNA results as well. Let's stay in touch. I'd love to know your results and see if we are a match. When you get your DNA results, please consider uploading them to Gedmatch - it is a site that serious genealogists use and there are a lot of different tools there. Thanks.

Zadock seems to be a fairly common name in this line. I wonder where it came from. I am from the Zadock Barnett (born in North Carolina 1745, died in Georgia 1823) line. I just made the connection through wills and traditional genealogy. I hope to find his parents. Also, there are lots of different ideas about the surname of his wife "Dolly" who was the mother of all his children. Any Ideas?

I descend from Richard Barnett, son of John and Katherine Farrar Barnett. Richard and his wife Lucy Wade, had a son named George. I wish to prove George to Richard. George was born in Spartanburg. The family,was affiliated with cedarSprings and Boiling Springs churches. The church records are at Furman University, but they don’t lend them out. Richard died intestate in Lawrence Alabama. I can not as yet find anything of use in Lawrence to link George to Richard. Any advice or help or lore should be appreciated!

Billy Barnett....Hello first of all........... now, We also have had a lot of ancestors that left Missouri for Oklahoma........ Creek, Oklahoma, Jenks, Wagoner and almost all points west from there.............. Our George Washington Barnett went to Washington and Oregon first to be with some of his children then on down to San Diego, CA. George died there 1945 and Francis Ingram- Barnett, his wife, died there as well. In this photo of him the sun must have been quite hot and bright because he is squinting a lot. He is a lot older here as well............... I am not sure about his hat.. I don't think I ever saw one like that one ! However, I am having a hard time trying to figure out his Ethnicity.. but... he looks sort of British to me anyway... Have any thoughts? Thank you !!

I never met him but the George Washington in your photo and my grandfather Marvin have identical noses. Thank you such for sharing this photo. It gives me hope I'm on the right track for my family tree.

Seeking any information on a Barnett or a close relative that was in the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC), in Arkansas (Damascus), in late 1940 or 1941. I have a 111 match with Charles Robertson Barnett. Thanks in advance.
