Group Barnett 1-Y                            Haplogroup R1b1a2

Generation 1

Valda V. Barnett. Born about 1822 in South Carolina. Valda died in Big Shanty, Pickens County, Georgia, on 2 Apr 1862 while serving in Company C, 43rd Regiment of the Georgia Volunteers.  We are unsure of the exact spelling of his given name: it appears in records as V.V., Valda, Vivalva, Civaldy and Vielda.  According to family tradition, he may have used the nicknames of “Bevely” and “Ross”.

On 23 Feb 1847 in Hall County, Georgia, Valda married Mary E. Ashworth who was born about 1827 in North or South Carolina.

The Valda mentioned in the estate file of Agnes (Glenn) Barnett, wife of Joroyal Barnett (transcribed by Janice Barnett Craft) might be our ancestor Valda.  In testimony from 1852, John Huhey stated that he knew Agnes “ever since he was a boy” and that when Valda Barnett killed


one of his cows she “paid him in corn”.

We believe Valda is a grandson of Joroyal and Agnes Barnett, probably through their son Jeremiah Barnett. A biographical sketch of Jeremiah’s son-in-law states: “Mrs. J. M. Cowart’s father Jeremiah Barnett was born in South Carolina and married Patience Seay. They had 6 girls and 2 boys.” We know that one of the sons referred to here is William Riley Barnett who married Milly Elrod. We assume that the other son is Valda, because in the 1860 US Census for Pickens County, Georgia, Valda and his family are living near Jeremiah and Patience Barnett.  However, we don’t have any definitive evidence to place Valda as a son of Jeremiah.
