Husband of Susan Cody.
Lexington Weekly Intelligencer, January 14, 1899
Died, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Wesley Chambers, in Winfield, Kansas, January 8, 1899, Mr. Edwin R. Barnett, aged 73 years.
The deceased was born near Richmond, Kentucky, September 25th, 1825. He was the son of Joseph and Elizabeth Ryland Barnett, and with his widowed mother and her family, moved to Lafayette county, Missouri, in 1850. In 1855 he married Miss Sue Cody, of Boonville, Mo., and settled on a farm near Waverly, where he resided for many years. He moved from there to Arkansas City, Kansas, but for several years before his death had been living at Langston, Oklahoma.
For some time he had been in failing health, but no apprehension of his approaching death was felt. About two weeks before his death he went to Winfield, Kansas, to visit his daughter, hoping that the change would prove beneficial, but the trip was too much for him and he grew rapidly worse. His wife was summoned and reached his beside in time to minister to him during his last days on earth. Surrounded by near and dear ones, his every want anticipated by loving children and grandchildren, he quietly, peacefully entered into his eternal rest. There seemed to be no special disease, only a gradual failing of the body, while his mind remained clear and bright to the last.
He was a man of unusually bright mind, good judgment and of a cheerful, sunshiny disposition. As a young man he was the life of every social gathering and had many warm friends among young and old. He would neglect his own work to render assistance to a neighbor in time of need. He was interested in everybody, and made many friends wherever he went. He was a Christian man, and many years ago united with the Maplewood Presbyterian church, near Alma, Mo. In the Civil war he served in the confederate army under General Jo. Shelby.
He leaves a wife and eight children to mourn the loss of husband and father. He is "not lost but gone before," and at Heaven's portal will meet and greet the loved ones left behind. The deceased was a brother of Mrs. Dr. Young and Mrs. Laura Young, of this city, and of Captain Jos. R. Barnett, of this county, and has many friends in this county who will grieve to hear of his death.
