    One Barnett descendant refers to a second wife, of whom I have notfound further information.  This could be the mother of Javan, theyoungest child named in Micajah's will, whom some genealogies report(without documentation) as born 5 July 1816.  Jane Glen Barnett diedin 1812, so Javan had a different mother.

    "I found this page when looking for information on Micajah Barnett Sr. His son, Micajah Barnett Jr was my grandmother's great-grandfatheraccording to our family records.  I only have 6 children listed forMicajah Sr, but have learned there were up to 14 in the mixed familyafter the second marriage.  Information on the mother of MicajahBarnett Jr would be very welcome and appreciated as it would help metrace the line between myself and the family."
    --  Jennifer Fishburn, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 6 February 2012

    Note that this list has one child named Joroyall, b 1802 and anotherJorial b 1808.  These names are variations of the same name.  Butperhaps this list is correct that there were two children.  Otherlists have only one child listed with a variation of this name.  Noneof the earlier ones I found had wives of this child.  One differenceis in the death date, which supports the idea that there were twochildren with these similar names.  This source does not give sourcesfor these birth and death dates.  The list also includes a Joseph,which would be a duplicate or Joroyall/Jorial.

    Another genealogy, for instance, has mostly the same children, but hasonly Joroyal and no Jorial separately, with no dates.  That list alsoadds Janylhen Barnett, and leaves out Micajah Jr. and Joseph.

    Micajah was recorded in the 1790 and 1800 censuses in SpartanburgCounty/District of South Carolina.  Several members of his familiesare in nearby households, including his father Joseph and his UncleEdward.  The Barnett name is spelled with only one T in the 1790census.

    In 1800 the household of Micajah Barnett is recorded next door to hisfather Joseph.  On the other side of Joseph is Joseph's brother EdwardBarnett.

    Micajah is buried in the Camp Croft State Park, near Spartanburg,South Carolina.  The Cemetery goes by different names, the BarnettFamily Cemetery, Cedar Springs Cemetery or Cedar Springs BaptistCemetery.

    In 1810, Micajah is the only Barnett on his page of the census forSpartanburg County, South Carolina, and none on nearby pages.  Thespecific location is uncertain.

    The following information is mentioned in several Barnett source andgenealogies:
    Micajah was a Baptist minister and served in the Revolutionary War.The original inscription on his headstone in Camp Croft State Park,Spartanburg, S.C., stated this.  Evidently the original stone forMicajah Cicero Barnett was stolen.  A new stone was dedicated in 1997.His new stone reads:

    Micajah's will, recorded written 19 September 1836, gives us the namesof some of his children.  Micajah died 9 January 1837.  Recordsindicate he was buried the day he died.  His wife is mentioned but notnamed.
