In some notes taken from my aunt, Mary Barnett Edwards, the line back from Joseph Barnett is John Barnett (who changed the name from Bernard to Barnett), John Bernard, Sr. b. 1661, d. 1709, and Richard Bernard, who came from London and died in Purton, VA.
I myself am looking for the line down from Joseph Royal, father of Jeremiah Elias, father of Divalia (sp.? - nickname Valda or Big Ross), father of Luther Langston (or Levi, also known as Little Ross), father of Samuel Joseph (my grandfather), father of Luther Cletus (my father). My research seems to stop from Joseph Royal (Joroyal) on down - I cannot find children of Jeremiah Elias and on down the line to trace my ancestry. Do you know of the Barnetts down from Joroyal, Jeremiah, Valda, Luther and Samuel Joseph? Or does anyone??
