Can anyone help me with the following Barnett Family information?I am trying to find out about my g-g-g-grandmother, America Lee Moorhead.Her maiden name appears to be Barnett.A cousin of mine emailed me part of a page from a Barnett Family Bible.
This page of the bible says that Joseph Barnett married Paralee Sentell, and although her first name is different in Sentell records (Parmelia), the bible does list their children as Jackson, Eliza, John, Henry, David, Charles, George, Joseph, and Americus as does Sentell family records.
The next entry concerns Joseph's brother Calvin.It says he married Ann Sentell, which could have been her middle name or???It lists four of their children and there were probably more.Listed are America L, James W., Aron Lafayette, and Laura C.
(Joseph and Calvin had other siblings but I can't read them.I don't know at this time who their parents were.)
Next to America's name is listed her huband, William H, who could have been William H. Moorhead, my ancestor.Two of their children are listed which match mine: Samuel and William L.
James W. Barnett married a "Sousin" and one child is listed, John.This family can be found on the 1880 Van Zandt TX census, where America and William also lived.
Aron (Aaron) is listed as marrying a Sarah E. Moorhead.Their sone James C. is listed next to their name.
Laura C. married a "Ressel Ray" and lists children Olley, Richard, Taylor, Violar, Ann, and Calvin.This family is on the 1860 census living in Leake Co, MS with Calvin and Ann, Laura's parents and appparently America's also.
America was born in GA and is next found in Pickens County, AL with her husband William H. Moorhead (aka Morehead).Their first two children were born there.Their next child, Joseph, was born in MS, I believe Attala County.By 1852 they were in Texas where the rest of their children were born.
I would like to know about this Barnett family and who this Ann Sentell was - her family and full given name etc.Who were the parents of Joseph and Calvin Barnett?
