large family tree at
Joy Frazier's db:
"Barnett's parents moved from Baltimore to Roanoke, Virginia. He is found in the 1783 Tax Lists of Bedford County, Virginia. Records show he received a Virginia State Land Grant on October 16, 1783. Later, in 1805, he sold his one hundred acres of land in Bedford County on the Stanton River where each of his children were born, and next he is found in the 1810 census of Montgomery County, Virginia. On August 15, 1812, Barnett and wife sold their land in Botetourt County, Virginia, which Elizabeth inherited from her family. They moved to White County, Tennessee, near Baxter between 1814-1818. They settled in Jackson County, Tennessee at "Old Bagdad" on Wartrace Creek. Barnett had his own still and was known to drink too much. Barnett died "old" and it is presumed he and his wife are buried in the "Old Richardson Cemetery" on the hillside of a farm there. There are no markers there for Barnett and Elizabeth, just rocks for headstones. (In 1996, Dad, Mom, Lucille Lawson, and I went to Old Bagdad and we found a cemetery on the side of a hill which had several Richardsons buried there. There was a couple of unmarked graves which we think were for Barnett and Elizabeth).
Volume 6 of HINSHAW'S QUAKER RECORDS shows the marriage of Barnett and Elizabeth Martin. Nothing else is learned, but some very faint family traditions have mentioned our Bedford County, Virginia ancestors and all of them were somehow tied into the Quakers through marriages, and that is one possible reason we have not found marriage records for many of them."
