I am looking for any help finding the parents of Mary "Polly" (STONE) BARNETT (THANK YOU VERY MUCH!)
David BARNETT [b. 01 Sep 1787 in Rutherford Co., NC - d. 29 June 1878 in Iowa] married: Mary "Polly" SLOAN/STONE? [b. 06 Jan 1796 - d. 03 June 1872 in Madison Co., Iowa] m. on 25 Nov 1814 in Harrison Co., Indiana
They were still in Indiana on the 1850 census in Washington Co., Indiana but in 1860 had moved to Iowa
Another clue to Mary's parents may be that David's bro., William Fernandez BARNETT m. Sarah Margaret SLOAN on 14 Aug in Mercer Co., KY [poss. d/o John SLOAN and Elizabeth GRIFFITH and perhaps sister to Mary???] Sarah (SLOAN) BARNETT died in Salem, Washington Co., Indiana on 04 May 1850 and Sarah's John SLOAN died 28 Feb 1840 in Washington Co., Indiana and Sarah's Elizabeth (Griffith) BARNETT died abt 1830 in Washington Co., Indiana
Do you know of the names of any local newspapers that obituaries for any of the above may have been likely to have appeared in?
Any help is deeply appreciated!
God bless, Freda Hart-Riley [Mary "Polly" SLOAN/STONE? and David BARNETT were my 3rd great grandparents.]
