William was born in Montgomery Co. AL to Nathaniel C. & Mary Margaret "Polly" Hudson Barnett. Polly died Nov. 4, 1831 in Montgomery Co.
William married Lydia Green Hughes on May 2, 1849 in Louisville, Jefferson Co. KY. She died Dec. 6, 1880 in AL.
Dr. Barnett was a graduate of Louisville school of Medicine. While in school he married Miss Lydia Hughes. After graduation they made their home with his father. He started to practice in 1847. He did an extensive practice and was, no doubt, a well informed Dr. He belonged to no church, was a Whig in politics and once represented his county in the legislature.
He was well-to-do until the war when his slaves were liberated and left him nothing but a large tract of land. His children were Fanny, who married D.r J. B. Chowning, his cousin. William H. who married Ella Marks his cousin. Addie who married G. C. Attwood and Charles who married Betty Graves.
Dr. Barnett, for a short time at the beginning of the war between the states, was a member of the 2nd Ark. Calvery (sic) (Confederate). War was distasteful to him and he returned home, where on account of his profession, he was allowed to remain.

Leaves have their time to fall
Flowers to wither at the north winds breath, But thine has all seasons to come O; death.
