    Richard Barnett, son of Joseph Barnett and Lucy Wade, was born 9 Oct 1773 in Spartanburg County, SC. He died in 1832 in Lawrence County, AL. He married Susannah about 1793 in Spartanburg County, SC. Susannah died sometime between 1814 (birth of son, Jorial) and 1820 (1820 Census). Her maiden name COULD have been White or Smith as Richard and Susannah sold and bought lands from the Whites and Smiths of Spartanburg Co., SC. It is also possible that Susannah's maiden name was Lewis. Their children were:

    1-ELIZABETH (probable daughter) born 1802 in Spartanburg County, SC and died about 1880 in Lincoln County, TN. She married Josiah Stovall, son of David Stovall and Mary Wright. Their children were: Mary Ann, Thomas (married Mahulda P. Smith), Stephen Gilbert (married Sarah Ann Sanderson), Nancy Jane (md. William Henry Riley), Frances, Susan Hulda (md. John C. Maroney), Alfred David (md. Sarah Jane Maroney, 2nd to Mary Jane Riley), Martha (md. Silas Dollar), Sarah (md. Hiram Dollar), and Matthew. Josiah and Elizabeth lived in Lincoln Co., TN all their life. Descendants seem to have migrated to Ellis Co., TX.

    2-SUSAN (probable daughter) born 1805 in Spartanburg County, SC and died before Sep 1857 in Itawamba County, MS. She married David Joseph Stovall, brother of Josiah. Their children were: Thomas Pinckney(?) (md. Matilda Gillis), Richard Lewis (md. Sarah Tankersly), Francis M. (md. Nancy Jane Lindsey), Elijah George (md. Sarah Ann, 2nd to Martha Alvis, 3rd to Emma P. McWilliams), John Calvin (md. Mary Martha Adeline Lindsey), Christopher Charles (md. Eveline), Martha E. (md. Joseph Tyre Mackey), Alfred B., Andrew Jackson (md. Mary Frances Woodward), William James (md. Mary Jane Walker) and Jorial (md Sarah Calista Reeves). David and Susan's family moved from Giles County, TN to Lawrence Co., AL then to Itawamba Co., MS. After Susan's death, David and his new wife, Mary Elizabeth Mackey Thigpen, moved to Kaufman County, TX. Many descendants remain in the Kaufman County area.

    3-JOSEPH born 20 June 1807 in Spartanburg County, SC and died 20 Nov 1894 in Coleman County, TX. He married Susan Hampton on 1 Sep 1829 in Lawrence County, AL. Their children were: James (apparently died young), Rial (md. Mary Jane Thomas), Cynthia E. (never married), Richard Thomas (died in Civil War), George (died in Civil War), Harvey (died in Civil War), Rufus Calvin (never married), Mary Ann, and Almary Melvina. Joseph and Sarah moved from Lawrence County, AL to Itawamba Co., MS then to Kaufman Co., TX then to Coleman Co., TX where they are buried in Talpa Cemetery in Coleman, Coleman Co., TX. Their descendants lived in the counties of Kaufman, Coleman and Runnels. Descendants of their son, Rial, later moved to Arizona.

    4-GEORGE born 2 Aug 1810 in Spartanburg County, SC and died 3 Dec 1888 in Kaufman Co., TX. He married Minerva Green on 11 Mar 1830 in Lawrence County, AL. Their children were: Caroline, Elizabeth Jane, James Monroe (md. Sharlotta Smith), Alfred J. (md. Emily Frances Morrow), Nemia (died young), William J. (died in Civil War), Nancy Jean (md. John Parker, 2nd to Joseph S. Hart), Martha A. (md. Samuel C. Hampton), Cornelia Frances (md. Joseph Cooper Spencer), Lucy A. (md. A. Bryant Hill), and Robert Henry (md. Elizabeth, 2nd to Susan). George and Minerva moved from Lawrence Co., AL to Itawamba Co., MS and later to Kaufman Co., TX. George and his family were one of the first families to settle in Kaufman Co., TX.

    5-JORIAL born about 1814 in Giles County, TN and died after 1880 in Brazos County, TX. He married twice, first to a Martha about 1835. Their children were: Susan E. (md. H. J. Taylor), Mary D.B. (md. Dave Adams??), Richard Lewis (md. Susan Hill, 2nd to Mary Jane Black), James Alfred (md. Mary D. Taylor, 2nd to Vina), George Allison (md. Rebecca E.), Benjamin Augustin (md. Emily C.), and Martha Callie (md. Leonidas W. P. Eubank). Jorial's second wife was Rachel Hill whom he married on 23 Dec 1858 in Cherokee County, TX. Their children were John Douglas (md. Mary E. Rawes), Nancy Alice (md. Michael Weickersheimer, Jr.), Cinder (Cinderella?), Ward (md. Hettie) and Laura. Jorial moved from Lawrence Co., AL to Itawamba Co., MS then to Cherokee Co., TX. Sometime after his marriage to his second wife, Rachel, he moved to Brazos Co., TX. His descendants lived in the counties of Eastland, Coke, Wharton, Matagorda, Freestone, and Brazos.

    Richard and Susannah apparently had four other daughters and two other sons. Does anyone know who they may have been? We suspect that there was a son named Alfred since almost all of the Barnett siblings named a son Alfred.
