1. DEATH: Last Will & Testament of Joseph Barnett, 14 DEC 1867 in Caldwell County, TX is signed and sealed on this date. Believe that the death date on tombstone is incorrect.
Heirs include wife, Mary & children--Zilpha Gray, Sallie New, Eliza Denney, Matilda McCarley, George, Francis Donald, Margaret McAllister, Melissa New, Samantha (Sumana) Wood, Harriet Fleming, & children of Abby Hester (dec'd).
Samuel McCarley, son-in-law, designated as sole executor recorded & filed the will on January 1, 1868.
2. FAMILY: It is believed that Joseph came to Texas with 2 brothers, John & George. Joseph settled around Caldwell County, TX while John made his home in San Saba County, TX. It is believed that George settled in Gonzales County and was killed by Indians about 1848.
3. BURIAL: In 2013, it came to my attention that at least 4 Barnett family tombstones were moved to Luling City Cemetery from an unknown location. Grave location unknown at this time.

He was my 4th Great Grand Uncle. On most of the family gravestones was "Gone But Not Forgotten" and that is so true!|
