You are my my rock!So, when are you going to write a book about the early Barnhills of Texas?Okay, so who was Thomas W. Barnhill, b. 1816, Daniel's brother married to?Think he was also married twice, once to Anna M. Wheeler and then another?
There is an Elizabeth Barnhill, b. 1831 on the 1850 Census listed with Thomas W. but did not think it was his wife, thought more likely his child from an earlier marriage?Did find an Elizabeth Barnhill m. Fritz Wendt 24 Aug 1858 in Washington Co, Texas Marriage Index 1836-1909.
The name O'Donnell or O'Daniel keeps popping up in connection to one of these Texas Barnhill men?William Freeman Barnhill b. 1819 was married to Nancy Roberson but did she also marry an O'Donnell or O'Daniel before she married William?
Something we may never know is why William Barnhill, Jr. and family took the scenic route through Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee before settling in Texas?
