Family is said (by grandmother living 1869-1965) to have moved from North Carolina to Virginia. As some Barnettes moved from Va. to NC and then back, it is possible this family is one of those. A Family tradition also suggests he was brother of John and Robert Barnette and son of Hannah who settled further up the Kanawha River in future Putnam Co. 

I just learned that another relative said they came to America from Yorkshire and that the name was originally Barnard and that they were from Switzerland. None of this proven]
