Obituary from the Edwardsville Intelligencer (Edwardsville, Madison County, Illinois), Tuesday, August 31, 1943:
   Mrs. Essie G. Barnett, wife of John A.P. Barnett, passed away suddenly at 6:45 o'clock this morning at her home, 422 N. Buchanan street. Death was due to heart attack.
   Mrs. Barnett was born in Litchfield, Illinois, on August 13, 1878, and at the time of her death had attained the age of 65 years and 18 days. She was married on July 16, 1903, to John A.P. Barnett, and has resided in Edwardsville since that time. Mrs. Barnett was a member of the First Presbyterian church in this city.
   Besides her husband, she is survived by five daughters, Mrs. Edwin J. Niemeier and Mrs. Noble Tolley, of Alton; Mrs. H.J. Ruoff, of Greensboro, N.C.; Mrs. Earl Herrin and Mrs. James Farrow of this city; and four grandchildren survive, Gene and Jerry Niemeier and Janice Tolley of Alton, and Jane Herrin of this city. Three brothers and two sisters also survive.
