I have researched the Barrett line for years My gr. gr. grandparents were Richard Nelson married 12-10-1842 Caldwell Par., La. to St.Helena Barrett.I feel that Milly Barrett was a sister or possibly 1/2 sister to my St.Helena Barrett.
Yes, John and Milly were in Denton Co., Tx. either 1850 or 1860they came to Tx. prior to my line.There was also a Nathan Barrett and his wife that left Jackson Par., La. after 1850 and was in Smith Co., Tx. 1860 then moved to Dallas Co., Tx. by 1870 where they lived (Grand Prairie) till they died. Also a James Edward Lyons and his wife Sarah Barrett left Jackson Parrish, La. after 1850 and settled in Shelby Co., Tx. by 1860 then moved to Smith Co., Tx. by 1870.My Richard & St. Helena Barrett Nelson left La. sometime prior to 1860 I found him on Tax list for Nacogdoches, Tx. 1861-62 then 1870 Hill Co., Tx. (which is by Dallas) then they moved back to Nac. Co., Tx. by 1880 where they stayed till they died.I believe Milly Barrett was the dtr of George W. Barrett not sure if his wife Sarah listed 1850 Jackson Par., La. is her mother or not.?????? I have lots but need confirmation that I am right
