Thank you for the clarifications concerning Frances Barnett which is my third great-grandmother, and the rest of the family. One of Frances' daughters, Clarisa E. Darnell, is my second great-grandmother. Clarissa married Benjamin Hutcheson. I'm not sure what happen to Benjamin as I have no death date or burial location. Clarisa married my second great grandfather, William Jasper Brown on 10-31-1872. William adopted Clarissa's daughters and had three more daughters and one son.
I had also heard the murder story, but never read anything about it in text.
Long story short, you tied up some loose ends for me. Thanks again as well as to others who contributed.
