Abraham and Elizabeth Barrett were listed in the 1820, 1830, & 1840 Bartholomew Co. censuses.
Absalom Barritt was born in Jennings Co. in 1828, son of Absalom & Elizabeth Barritt. (Descendents spell it with an "i".
There were also in Jennings Co. Ellen Barrett who married William Chambers, and Zenah Barrett who married Absalom Bishop.
Appproximately 1845, all these families moved to Mercer Co, MO. Absalom is in the 1850 Mercer census, and Abraham in the 1860 & 70 censuses.
I would aprreciate info on any of these families. What, if any, is the connection among the Barretts & Barritts? Were Abraham and Absalom brothers, cousins, or one and the same?
Thanks very much for any help.
