I would very much be interested in some of the Barrett genealogy to the point where it branches to my lineage.My great grandmother was Margaret Wilson (Ohio) who married William Zimmerman (my g grandfather, immigrated from Prussia to Ohio).Esther is purported to a daughter of Thomas Barrett (b. Chester, PA) and Margaret Warden.Thomas is purported to be the son of Arthur Barrett(b. Chester, PA) and Elizabeth Baldwin.This Arthur is purported to be the son of another Thomas Barrett and Hannah Oldham (b.Nottingham, PA). This Thomas is purported to be the son of another Arthur Barrett (b. England, and immigrated to PA) and Lydia Chambers. Some websites say Lydia was born in England and some say PA.
Were Arthur and Lydia's children born in PA before they removed to VA? I'm assuming children stayed in PA based on birth place or else there's a problem with this genealogy.Also I have seen where Esther is reported as being born in VA.How did that happen?
Anyway, I'm new at this genealogy stuff, but I'm trying to be very careful as to what is reasonable and what is not.I want to rely on experts like you so I don't have to rediscover what you already know.
Thanks for help you can give.My email is email@example.com.
