My BARNETTs start with David BARNETT and sons, John and William, living in
Newark, NJ in the early 1820s. William went to MA and married Nancy Wheeler
in 1826 in Medway. Daughter Matilda was born 1833, and William in 1837, both
in MA. By 1840, the family was back in NJ with a 3rd child, George AC, born
1839 in Rahway, NJ. Matilda returned to Boston and never married. William
and George served together in the Civil War in Hawkin's Zouaves, and their
mother Nancy was alive at that time. William was killed in action, but
George survived and had a long life as an attorney in New York City. He died
in 1914, and was my great-grandfather.
Also seeking another relative, Oliver Barnett, who lived in NY and NJ
