Name2: Eveline Barnett.7

Notes

  • Some genealogies have Evaline's name as Susan Evaline.  I have notfound any record, documentation or statement of family source for thename Susan.  The first record I find for Evaline Barnett is the 1850census.

    1850 Federal Census, Monroe County, Tennessee, 12 November, 14th CivilDistrict, page 229 (scan 115), Hse/Fam #1608

    Nancy Barnett 25 F b SC
    -- page 230 --
    Evaline Barnett 12 F b NC

    Evaline's age in the 1850 and 1880 censuses are consistent, making herborn in 1838.  But her birthday from family sources is 20 November1835. The 1895 Kansas State Census matches her actual birthday.

    By 1895, all the children are out of the house except the youngest,Lula Belle.

    The child Lula is reported under this name in genealogies as well asrecords.  One Barnett researcher with whom I have worked on thisfamily reports her name as Lola.  I note that her brother Frank(Francis) had a daughter who was reported in the census as Lolo,possibly meant to be Lola.  In 1900 Lula is still in the household,but has recently married David Lundry.

    Thanks to Barnett Researcher Nadene Snyder, who worked with me on muchof this Barnett line, and who had found many public records on theBarnett lineage.  Note that in these later censuses her name isspelled Eveline.  This was also the spelling on her marriageregistration.  Nadene lists Evaline as Susan Evaline, but provides norecord with that name.  I have not found any record documenting thefirst name of Susan.  It may be a name known only in family sources.

    I have not learned if the name appears this way in a family Bible orother family document.  No one who has her name as Susan Evalinedocuments where they got that name.  Thus I have insufficient evidencefor including Susan in the name for Evaline.

    In 1920 Evaline is living with her widowed daughter Lula Belle

    On her death certificate, her name is spelled Eveline, as it was on acouple of censuses and her marriage record.

    White Female, Widowed
    Died 9 Nov 1929
    Cause of Death Senility and Cancer on leg
    Name of Father Frank Barnett
    Birth 22 Dec 1835 South Carolina
    Informant Mrs Frank Dixon (daughter Lula Belle)
    Buried 10 Nov 1929 Brown's Grove Cemetery

    I am puzzled by the name of her father reported here, Frank Barnett.Her father was Jorile/Jorial Barnett.  I am thinking this is an errorby the coroner.  The informant's husband was named Frank, a possiblesource of the confusion of names.

    Two versions of her obituary were published by two differentpublications.
