Albert Barnett of Saratoga County, New York was probably born in August 1857 in the area of Germany formerly known as Prussia. He came to the United States between 1877 and 1882 and was naturalized as a US citizen about 1892.

A passenger record dated 11 September 1882 for the steamer Bohemia bound from Hamburg to New York was found for an Albert Barnett listing him as age 23, a turner, born Baden Prussia. A passenger on the same ship listed next to Albert was Hermann Barnett age 26, a carpenter born  Baden, Prussia. It is not known if the record is for the correct Albert. The 1900 census indicates Albert came to the US in 1882 and had been in the country 18 years. The 1920 and 1930 census both say he came to the United States in 1877

About 1884 Albert married at age 27 Bertha Mangle probably in Saratoga County New York. They had a farm in the Charlton area where they raised their children and lived the remainder of their life.

According to the 1900 census Bertha was born in May 1857 in Germany. She was probably born in the area of Germany formerly called Prussia, and died sometime between the taking of the 1910 and 1920 census. Albert was still alive in 1930 when he was enumerated as being age 72 and still a widow. It is not known when he died.
