Generation 1 (Tillman Side)

SEE THE RELATIONSHIP DRAWING ON LAST PAGE

JAMES BARNETT was born abt. 1766 in Cross Keys, Union County, South Carolina, and died abt. 1814 in South Carolina?  He married ISABELLA JOHNSTON in South Carolina?  She was born in Newberry District, South Carolina, and died in Alabama. They had 6 children. They are my great-great-great grandparents.

NOTE:According to the book From Then Until Now, self-published in Montgomery, Alabama by Pauline Smith Crenshaw ( a descendant of James Barnett through his son Asa), pg. 98:

“James Barnett, born in Pendleton District, South Carolina, at a place called Cross Keys, in 1766. The date of his birth is not certain, but he died in 1813, and was said to be forty-seven years old.

“He was of Scotch descent. He married Isabella Johnston, who was reared in Newberry District, South Carolina. After the death of her husband she moved to Tallapoosa County, Alabama, in 1818. She died at the age of fifty-nine. She was of Irish descent.

“Asa Barnett, their son, married Elizabeth Williams, and they were the parents of Martha Elizabeth Barnett, who married John William Alexander Jackson.

“(From note book which belonged to Grandpapa Jackson, now in possession of Aunt Belle Teague.)”

This is the only place I have found any info about James and Isabella Barnett, other than the few official documents found concerning him. No official documents contain his birth or death dates, or any info about his parents, siblings, etc. I have no idea where Mrs. Crenshaw got her info, except from the notebook she lists as a source. The book does not have a publishing date, but had a library stamp of June 15, 1989, which I assume is when it was acquired.

Cross Keys is a small town currently located in the southwest corner of Union Co., South Carolina?
