  • An Alabama marriage record seems to be for Asa Barnett and his first wife Gracey.  Some genealogies report Gracey as the first wife of Asa, marrying Asa in January 1827.  But she died the next year.   No ages are given, but the marriage date of January 1827 would make Gracey Urquhart about 14 years old at the time this marriage license was issued.

    Gracy Urquhart
    Marriage 31 Jan 1827 Montgomery, Alabama
    Spouse Asa Barnett

    I found the original posted and discovered that the execution line had been canceled.  Information had been entered, but then struck out.  It appears this marriage license never was executed, so Asa and Gracey never were married.  At any rate there were no children from the marriage.  Details are not clear otherwise.

    One of several seemingly knowledgeable trees provides extensive information on Asa and Elizabeth and full names for their children, though some events are not documented, one being the marriage of Asa and Elizabeth.  Unfortunately, the URL of this tree was not captured.

    The above genealogy identifies Asa's father as one James Barnett born in 1766, and his mother as Isabella Johnston.  At least one other genealogy reports James as born in 1770, and identifies James' father as a John Barnett married to Ann Pratt.  The dates of birth vary among the various genealogies.

    John's father is identified as William, who was born in Londonderry, Ireland.  The latter is the line of Susan Barnett, who married Jacob Green, son of Toliver Green.  Jacob's brother Jackson married Clarinda Barnett, but her lineage derives from an English-French line settled early in Virginia, unrelated to Susan Barnett Green's Barnetts.

    In the 1850 census, Elizabeth is reported 17 years older than Asa, but in 1860 her age is 10 years younger.  Also Elizabeth's birth place is reported as South Carolina in 1850, but Alabama in 1860, though Asa's state is South Caorlina both times.
