    Note that even though Zach was reported as only 9 months old inNovember 1850, in 1860 he is reported as 12 years old.  Even better,in the 1900 census he is reported as 60 years old, making him bornin18409, not 1850.  The 1900 census reports his birthday as Dec 1840.

    Several records under the name of Taylor Barnett appear to refer toZachary Taylor Barnett.

    Some report him as a Civil War veteran.  He could have served butwould have been only about 13 or 14.  The record indicates he was in aTennessee regiment for the USA.  I have not found any Civil War recordfor his father Jorial Barnett.  But Zach's induction into service inthe USA army in Tennessee in November 1864 seems odd, since theBarnetts were enumerated in Illinois in 1860.  This might be adifferent Taylor Barnett.  But the connection with Tennessee fits.  Ifthis is the same person, Zachary would have traveled back to Tennesseeto enlist, rather than enlisting in an Illinois Regiment, seems alittle strange.

    The Taylor Barnett who served in the Tennessee Union Mounted Infantrymoved to Oregon where he died.  The information on his wife matchesZachary Taylor Barnett's wife, Sarah.  Civil War pension recordsreport her as Sarah A J Barnett, widow of Taylor Barnett.

    The 7th Tennessee Mounted Infantry was a Union regiment organized inTennessee late int eh war.

    The Z T (Zachary Taylor) Barnett in this mariage report seems to bethe same perosn as Taylor Barnett who married Sara Nicols (Duckett),and is so reproted by numeros genealogies.  Public records correlatewell.  He and Sarah were married in Hill Countym, Texas, wher hisgrandfather Jorile Barnett was enumerated in 1870.  (I have not foundJorile in 1880)  However, it is odd that they were married in Texasthen appear in 1880 back in the county where Taylor was born, MonroeCounty, Tennessee.

    Sarah's related funeral card has her name as Sarah H Barnett.  Thiscard gives us further information that might indicate this Sarah andTaylor are a different couple from our Zachary Taylor Barnett andSarah Nichols.  Sarah's funeral card reports more family informationincluding Sarah's parents' names.  Her father is reported as John ADuckett, whereas the name of Zachary Taylor Barnett's wife wasreported on their marriage record as Sarah Nichols.  The name Nicholsmight have been a previous married name, accounting for the namedifference.

    Sarah's name on the Funeral Card is Sarah H Barnett, while her graveand the memorial on Find a Grave, as well as the photo of hergravestone,  have her name as Sarah A Barnett, matching the Civil Warpension record name of Sarah A J Barnett..  In the 1900 census she wasSarah Ann.  I have found nothing further on the additonal initial J.
