Hello...Just an FYI...In the 1850 census..Under the John Alcorn Family..I believe the "Betsy" is actually Elizabeth Hicks Barnett Alcorn...and the last 2 names are John Barnett, age 7, and William Barnett, age 4 (Brothers from Elizabeth's previous marriage to John Barnett).

The information I have found was Elizabeth remarried to John Alcorn ..William Barnett is my gr gr grandfather. I will send what I have regarding Alcorn...Some of what I have you have already listed in this post..so I will compare notes and see what I can send that's different. Thanks...

Surnames: Alcorn
This may be a bit of good info for you. Just select and copy.

ROBERT ALCORN was born between 1765 and 1775, son of John Alcorn and Jane Breckenridge. Lloyd C. Alcorn lists him as born in 1771. He married Susannah Turpin Welch on 25 May, 1796, in Madison County, Kentucky. The clerk made a mistake when he wrote out the bond. He wrote:
John and Susannah rather than Robert and Susannah. John Alcorn, father of Robert, signed the marriage bond. That this was a mistake can be later validated by census records which show Robert and Susannah as husband and wife in the census records of Madison, Fayette, and Gallatin counties of Kentucky. Susannah Turpin was born in 1777 in North Carolina. She first married Thomas Welch on 9 January, 1794, in Madison County, Kentucky. Thomas apparently lived only about a year after the marriage. Thomas and Susannah are thought to have had one daughter prior to Thomas' death. In November, 1796, Robert and Susannah sold 35 acres to Stephen Eastin in Madison County, Kentucky. This was land that Susannah inherited when her first husband, Thomas Welch, died. Robert is recorded on the 1809,1810,1811, and 1814 tax lists for Fayette County. He is recorded on the 1820 census and tax list and the 1830 census as living in Gallatin County., Kentucky. Robert and Susannah had eleven other children. Robert died between 1825 and 1830 in Gallatin County, Kentucky. Susannah appears on the 1830 census of Gallatin County, Kentucky, age between 50 and 60; and also on the 1850 census of .i.Kentucky:Gallatin County;Gallatin County, Kentucky, age 73, born in North Carolina. She was living with Mary Holbart at the time. Their children are:
1. Lucy Alcorn
2. Rebecca Alcorn
3. Elizabeth Alcorn
4. John Alcorn
5. Sallie Alcorn
6. A daughter
7. Jesse Alcorn
8. A daughter
9. Robert Alcorn
10. Mary Ann Alcorn
11. Alice Alcorn
12. William Alcorn

1. Lucy Alcorn was born prior to 1795. She is probably the daughter of Thomas and Susannah Welch. She apparently took the name Alcorn. Robert signed permission for Lucy to marry Moses Hicks on 16 April, 1811, in Fayette County, Kentucky. Robert provided surety. Moses Hicks is listed on the 1814 and 1817 Fayette County, Kentucky, tax lists.

2. Rebecca Alcorn was born between 1796 and 1800. She married William Hicks on 10 January, 1815, in Fayette County, Kentucky.

4. John Alcorn was born about 1799 to 1802 in Kentucky, son of Robert Alcorn and Susannah (Turpin) Welch. The name of this first wife is unknown.

He married, third, Elizabeth "Betsy" (Hicks) Barnett on 14 November, 1846, in Jessamine County, Kentucky. Elizabeth was born about 1820 in Kentucky. She was first married to William Barnett on 15 April, 1842, in Jessamine County, Kentucky. This marriage bond was signed by William Barnett and John Hicks. John Hicks was the father of Elizabeth. Her brother was William Hicks, who married Rebecca Alcorn. Elizabeth had two children by William Barnett: John Barnett and William Barnett, Jr.. John first appears on the Jessamine County tax list for 1831. Apparently he did not own land but farmed land for thers in Jessamine and Garrard Counties. John is listed on Garrard County tax lists from 1846 to 1872. Jessamine County Clerk records show that John was fined twice for "selling spiritous liquors without a license." He may have owned a tavern. On the 1850 Jessamine County census, John's age is listed as 49 and his occupation is a farmer. His wife is Elizabeth "Betsy", age 30. Besides John's children, John Barnett and William Barnett, both listed as age 7, were living with them. John Alcorn died in October, 1877, in Jessamine County, Kentucky.

Hi!

I'm wondering if you are still following this chain of posts. My interest is in one of the first people mentioned in your chain - Thomas Welch. I'm directly descended from a daughter he had with his first wife. I'd appreciate any information you have.
