I am searching the Barnett / Barnette's also. I was at New Liberty Baptist Church on Hwy 25 in Northern Greenville County last Wednesday searching for for my gggrandfather, James R. (Street) Barnette. I found a Henry H. Barnette b.May 5, 1842 d.May 8, 1901 wife of Jane Chiles b.Oct. 16, 1845 d.July 1, 1932. However, I did not find James. I don't know if this would be the Henry H. you are looking for, unless he was possibly married twice.What are the other Barnette's you have info on or searching for? I would gladly share info.

Hi Carol,
Sorry, it wasn't me that talked to your Aunt.
However, maybe I should, she may be able to give me some hints as how our Barnett's may be connected. There is no doubt in my mind they are related, but how I don't know. Most of the SC Barnett's are from the Marietta, Cleveland, Slater, New Liberty, Cross Plains and Glassy Mountain area,in which all are in the Northern Greenville County area within a 5 mile radious. There is a group of Barnett's from Spatanburg area with no relation to mine, they seemed to have migrated from the middle of the state in the 1700s.I would like to talk to your Aunt. You can email me with her number or email me with your email address and I will give you my number for her to contact me.

My great-grandfather was Irvin Yancy Barnett. He was born May 31, 1813, in South Carolina. I do not know the location. He died May 19, 1903. He had four sons. William Ezekial was my grandfather. He died before my birth. My grandfather, was born March 12, 1849. He died September 24, 1924. Yancy's other children were sons Asa (1823-1897), James (1808-1863). The daughers were: Lucinda Davis. Pansy McClure, Elvira, Sharah Ann Herman, Eliza White. Yancy's mother was Mary Ann Trobough - born in 1821. I do not have the location, although I have been told she was of Holland Dutch lineage. Yancy's father was Ezekiel (1777 - 1871). His mother was Olive Montgomery. The birth information I have for her is incongruent with the other information that I have provided in this letter. Maybe this information will be of some help. Let me know!

It's possible there could be a relation on the SC line. What were some of your names from SC?
