19. CATHERINE6 BARNETT (WILLIAM M.5, AMOS4, ROBERT3 , HUGH2, T HOMAS BARNETT1 SR.) 32 was born 1844 in Giles County, Tennessee33, and died Aft. 1880 in Giles County, Tennessee.

Notes for CATHERINE BARNETT:
Catherine appears in household of her father William M. Barnett, Giles County, Tennessee Federal Census for years 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880. We can determine her birth before 1850 and her death after 1880. We have found no other record of Catherine, excepting the Funeral Home record of Henry Jackson wherein Catherine, born Tennessee, is listed as his mother. Family history always indicated Catherine as his mother and the census records bear this out….additionally, Henry Jackson said on occasion he went to visit another grandfather in another county when a small boy in Giles County, Tennessee; this would back up another family story that Henry Jacksons parents were a Barnett who married a Barnett. James, Henry Jackson’s brother stated that he was raised by his grandparents (William M. and Mary) and they told him his parents died when he was young.

Children of CATHERINE BARNETT are:

23. i. HENRY JACKSON7 BARNETT, b. October 21, 1868, Giles County, Tennessee; d. September 21, 1940, Howell County, Missouri, Radle Cemetery.

20. NANCY ELIZABETH6 BARNETT (WILLIAM M.5, AMOS4, ROBERT3, HUGH2, THOMAS BARNETT1 S R.)33 was born 1846 in Giles County, Tennessee, and died Unknown. She married ANDREW J. GUTHRIE December 20, 1873 in Giles County, Tennessee 34. He was born Unknown in Tennessee.

Henry Jackson Barnett and Margaret Francis Drinnon acquired some 80 acres in Howell County. He farmed and blacksmithed, and together they raised livestock, gardened and provided for their needs in accordance with the times. He was known to be industrious, productive, and a good neighbor, well thought of in his community. He served as president of MT. Pleasent School District, taking an active interest in local affairs and his family.

Henry Jackson Barnett was a victim of stroke in early 1932. He was incapicated and mostly bedridden until his death in 1940. His funeral was held outdoors at the house he built, under a maple tree planted by son Alvin many years earlier.

Notes for MARGARET FRANCIS DRINNON:
Mrs. Margaret T. Barnett Died Here Early Today (should be Margaret F)
Mrs. Margaret T. Barnett widow of the late Frank H. Barnett, (should be Henry J. Barnett) died this morning at the Wilson Rest Home where she had been a patient for the last 90 days. Funeral services are to be held tomorrow afternoon at 3;00 in the Valley View Church.

Mrs. Barnett was the daughter of the late Joe and Frances Drinnon and was born here in Howell County, Nov. 15, 1870 and spent her entire life here in the county. About 68 years ago she was married to Frank H. Barnett (should be Henry J. Barnett) who preceded her in death 15 years ago.

There is a son surviving, Alvin A Barnett of Tulsa, Okla., who will arrive tonight; a brother, John Drinnon of West Plains, and a sister, Mrs Tate Heuer (should be Laura Riggs) of Harrison, Ark. There is a grandson, James Barnett,

living at West Plains and a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren surviving. Three sons preceded their mother in death.

Mrs. Barnett was a member of the Baptist Church and has been since early womanhood.

Burial will be beside her husband in the Radle Cemetery under the direction of Robertson Funeral Home.

WEST PLAINS QUILL November 9, 1956

Note: Several errors in this obituary…she was married to Henry J. Barnett, Frank H. Barnett being her son….Mrs. Tate Heuer was the daughter of her sister, Laura Riggs….her son Frank preceded her in death, the reference to three
sons being twins who died in infancy unnamed, and her name was Margaret F. Drinnon.

Margaret Francis Drinnon shared the small stature of her mother Eliza Francis Curtis. She was an active person both mentally and in terms of operating her small farm for her lively hood as a widow for some 16 years. Goldie Drinnon, her niece writes: “I remember dad telling me that Aunt Meg, by herself, fenced 40 acres”. She was fiercely independent, self sufficient and strong willed. Generous and forgiving, she loved to read old newspapers, and understood the modern world taking shape around her. ________________________________________________________________ ___

Notes for JAMES WILLIAM BARNETT:

July 25, 1995, conversation with Jessie and Tommie Barnett at Jessies home in Pulaski, Tennessee. During the conversation Jessie said his father, James Barnett recalled the following:

* Being raised by his grandfather as his parents died at his early age. The grandparents were very good to them all.

* The grandfather was a blacksmith, a very good one, who stayed quite busy. The grandfather was a sober man except on Christmas when he celebrated and drank heavily. One Christmas he did this and disappeared…a search was started by the neighbors…they didn’t want to lose a good blacksmith…they found him high in a tree, trying to climb higher.

* James helped with the family and told the grandmother he would take care of her when the grandfather died. The grandfather died (abt 1890) and James built a house about a mile from the house where the grandfather died. James cared for the grandmother until her death in the winter, about a year later (abt 1891/92) James married some time after the grandmothers death. These dates may be even later, as James first child (Mark) was born in 1895.

James married in 1894 and the grandparents had passed away a year or two prior to James first marriage to Maude Butler. This would make William and Mary’s death after 1890.

* The house where the grandfather died is just south of the Olivet Church, and the house James built after his death is about a mile away on present day Shady Lane. Both houses have been expanded, remodeled and added to over the years. Mack and Maggie Barnett Pinkelton’s son James (Jimmie) and his family lived in the original house  for a time, and in fact, Jimmie built the present barn on the property in the late 1960s.

* Jessie recalled his father saying a Aunt Ellen came when he was a boy to help at times. He recalled his grandfather saying he shod horses for both armies during the civil war.

* James said his grandmother made wonderful watermelon rind pickles.

* The name Catherine didn’t come to mind with Jessie or Tommie and Jessie didn’t recall James mentioning a Catherine as his mother or a relative. Jessie said his dad James told him his parents died when he was about 4.

* The name Stonewall Jackson rung a bell with Jessie. He recalled his father James relating about a brother who ran away from home and they all worried about him. Jessie has previously related how the family received a letter from the brother (Jackson) who left home, telling them he had been badly cut up in a fight with another boy. They  heard no more and assumed him dead. Maggie Barnett Pinkelton says her father James talked about being raised by aunt Ellen, and James talked about a brother named Stonewall Jackson who left, was hurt and never returned. James  worried about him.

Both Jessie and Tommie state James was a stern, sober man who insisted on discipline with his children. They also pictured him as a fair person who enjoyed his family and helped others when needed. He was a hardworking farmer and a regular church attendee, having attended the Olivet (Methodist ) Church at one time. Maggie said she was raised a Methodist and she too has good memories of him. He didn’t shirk the responsibility of caring for his aged grandparents, William and Mary, and saw them through the end of their lives.

Notes for ALVIN AARON BARNETT:

Alvin displayed many talents. He was an accomplished musician (fiddle) in his youth and self taught draftsman.

His lifes work became carpentry and construction superintendent. Just before the outbreak of WW11 in 1941, he joined the Tarleton-McDonald Company of St. Louis, Missouri. Pearl Harbor found him in Goodman, Missouri, for the construction of Camp Goodman, then to Smokey Hill Air Force Base in Salina, Kansas, and Pampa, Texas for the synthetic rubber plant.

Military construction projects in the Los Angles area took him there and on to Richmond, California and the Camp Stoneman project. He also worked at Hanford, Washington and the huge uranium plant for the atomic bomb program. Excepting the Hanford project, family was with him, all returning to West Plains at the close of the war.

The lure was never the same and the family moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1948. Tulsa always had a strong hold on his heart, having lived and worked there in the1920s and 30s and there he settled, worked and remained until his death.

Notes for HENRY EDWARD BARNETT:

Henry served in the Army, WW11. I recall his stories about the Japanese in Tokyo during the occupation there, following surrender in August, 1945. He resides today in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1950, Henry and Ruby lived in an apartment in Independence, Missouri, just 3 blocks from the Harry Truman home. I stayed a few weeks with them in early 1951, walking past the Truman house twice daily to and from the bus stop and work in Kansas City. Never saw the President, but you could walk on the side walk past the house and see in the windows. Truman’s mother occupied the house at that time. Had you not known it was the Truman home, it was like any other. I remember Henry and Ruby being good to a cousin during a difficult growing up period. They wished me well when I left for Tulsa to enlist in the Army in April, 1951. I have not seen Henry since that day.
