    The last line at the bottom of the gravestone is "The dead in the lord are blessed."

    Thomas Barnett, Soldier and Patriot is listed on the SAR Veterans of the Revolutionary War plaque at the gate entrance.

    Thomas' gravestone is listed in Rev.

Plus Thomas Barnett paid a 1797 assessment to help build a wall around the Old Hanover Church graveyard (p 35). They doubled the current county taxes and he paid £1,10,3. Also Thomas Barnett, Jr. 1831-1841; a Thomas Barnett, 1789-1830* and Thomas Barnett (estate), were listed under members or contributors of the Hanover Congregation (p 31).

    *note 1789 is the earliest when the membership records begin in this book, but the church is much older.

    Emily adds: Thomas Barnett was the son of Joseph Barnett and Elizabeth Graham.
