    Margaret is reported in this census as William's mother, and this isalso reported in one or two genealogies.  But several documents andrecords, including his death certificate, report that his mother wasEmily Foster.

    The date of marriage for John Barnett and Emily Caroline Foster isuncertain.  She is reported as the mother of William B Barnett(Barnette), but married William Beach in 1877 or 1878.  Hers andWilliam's obits and several Beach children obits, as well as William'sdeath certificate, all support William B Barnett as her only Barnettson.

    William B Barnett was born in 1872.  And Emily Foster was born about1856.  To be William's birth mother, Emily had to have had Williamwhen she was about 16, and married at about age 15, which could bepossible.  She married William Beach in 1880 & lived till 1938.  Nomarriage for Margaret and John has been found.

    In the 1910 census John's wife Margaret was reported as a widow,living in the house of William B Barnett and his family.  She wasreported as the Mother of William.  It appears from all the evidencethat this should have said stepmother.

    No death record has been found for Margaret, nor her maiden name.  Sheis not found in the 1920 census.
