Hi Eric,
I have done a lot of research on our family tree and it doesn't make sense for Robert Senior to be our Great Grandfather.He may be our Great Great Grandfather.This Robert Senior you are refering to his will was probated in 1881 which means he would have to be dead before the will was probated because in order for a will to be read the person would have to have died already.Our Grandfather James Barrett wasn't born until 1887 so Robert Senior can't be our Great Grandfather because he was dead before Grandfather was born.I think our Great Grandfather was James Barrett Senior who's father would possibly be Robert Senior because he has son in will called James Barrett who could possibly be our Grandfather's James Barrett's Father.It was very common back then for families to name their kids after their parents. Inez seems to think also that James Barrett Senior was our Great Grandfather as well,She said she can remember her dad talking about him.She said he drowned at age 78 years.He is in Woody Island burial listShe said people seem to think it was Robin or Robert ,but she said she thinks Robin was George Barrett's son.This is just waht we think we could possibly be wrong.Thanks for the reply and let me know if you have something otherwise.Have a great day Eric.
