This Barnet family is headed by Philip Barnet, born in Amsterdam, Holland on June 5, 1793 per his will.  He married Susannah Flanigan in Lincoln Co., NC. They moved to Johnson Co., Missouri, arriving there in 1838.  Philip and Susannah live out their lifes in Johnson Co. with a large family.  The children used the spelling of BARNETT and married into local families of:
Payne, Marshall, Maddox, Malloy, Scharnhorst, Fisher and Briles. 
The grandchildren were many, marring into the families of:
Amick, Hall, Thompson, Porter, and Haynes with many more names included.

"I, Philip Barnet, a farmer of Grover Township, Johnson County, State of Missouri, born in Amsterdam, Holland about June 5, 1793..."

In my hands I was holding a will written by my great, great, great, Grandfather Philip Barnet, writen in 1877.  In the Johnson County Court House, in the basement's huge vault, the clerk handed me a brown folded envelope, with a very faded pink ribbon that fell apart when I pulled on the bow.  On the outside was written, "Will of Philip Barnet 1877."  The handwritten will, signed by Philip Barnet, was 102 years old!  I was so excited and moved, that tears came to my eyes after reading the first sentence.  The will appeared to have not been opened since the probate clerk filed it away in that metal box in 1877.  We did not know Philip's neither birth date nor place of birth until I found his will.  I would like to Thank the clerks in Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri Court House for being so helpful when I visited there in 1979, and again in 1989.  The lady that helped me, must have appreciated the old documents, by the way she so carefully handled them while searching through boxes, so high up on the shelves, that she had to get a ladder to reach them.

In tracing the descendants of Philip, Barnet would be spelled with 2 t's.  His children had taken the spelling of Barnett, which I will use unless referring to the immigrant Philip Barnet.  His will, where he signed his name, and his tombstone at Payne Cemetery in Johnson County, very clearly has "Philip Barnet," as well as his wife's, Susannah, tombstone has the spelling of one  "t."

The Barnett family line has been of special interest to me.  Nothing really noteworthy concerning history, such as politicians, business, or fame.  They were farmers that impressed me with their determination to survive in 1838 Missouri Prairie farmlands, with large families that pulled together to break sod, and to plant their roots so firmly in Missouri.  Seeing the love of Philip for his children through his will and the statements he made in the deeds when Philip gave land to his children BEFORE his death, which was unusual to give children land before the death. 

The "History of Johnson County, Missouri" of 1881 said that Philip Barnet came to Johnson County in 1847 from North Carolina and died in 1877.  The children's birth places prove differently with the 8th child, Susannah being born in Oct 1837 in North Carolina and the 9th child, Nancy Delano Barnett, being born 8 Jan 1840 in Missouri.  The date of the move to Missouri would be closer to 1838.  The plat map of Grover Township shows Philip Barnet had bought land by 1839.  The area of the Payne Cemetery and the 40 acres north & east of the Cemetery was the first land Philip bought.  The plat map of Range 24, Township 47, of Grover Township, Johnson County, relates the names of owners and more than half are inter-married in some way to the Barnett and Payne's.

For those interested in tracing Philip's property the following is included:
25 Sep 1839 Rg. 24, Twp 47, Sec. 4, W 1/2 of Lot 1 of NE 1/4
25 Sep 1839 Rg. 24, Twp 47, Sec. 4, E 1/2 of Lot 2 of NE 1/4
4 Jun 1850 Rg. 24, Twp 47, Sec. 3, W 1/2 of Lot 1 of NE 1/4
7 Sep 1853 Rg. 24, Twp 47, Sec.11, NW 1/4 of the SW 1/4
The New Dictionary of American Family Names by Elsdon Smith has the Barnet name as follows: "English - Barnett, Barnette, Barnet.  Descendants of little Bernard.  One who came from Barnet (place cleared by burning in Middlesex.)"

The 1820 Lincoln County, North Carolina census shows Philip as a single man.  On 15 July 1824 there is a bond made for marriage with Susannah Flanigan.  It is interesting to note that a "marriage license" in 1824 was really a bond or contract made between bondsmen to assure that the husband to be, would fulfill his promise of marriage to the young lady.  In Philip and Susannah's bond, Philip signed for himself and David Campbell signed for Susannah. 


KNOW ALL MEN by these present, that we PHILIP BARNET and DAVID CAMPBELL in the State aforesaid are held firmly bound unto the Governor of the State of North Carolina for the time being, in the just and full sum of Five Hundred Pounds, current money of this State to be paid to the Governor, or his successors or assigns; to the which payment well and to be made and done, we bind ourselves, our heirs, Executors and Administrators, Sealed with our seals, and dated this 14th day of July Anno Domini 1824.

THE CONDITION of the above Obligation is such, That whereas the above bounded PHILIP BARNET hath made a application for a License for a Marriage to be celebrated between him and SUSANNAH FLANIGAN of the county aforesaid:  Now in case it shall not appear hereafter, that there is any lawful cause to obstruct the said Marriage, then the above obligation to be void, otherwise to remain in full force and virtue.
Sealed and Delivered in PHILIP BARNET (his signature)
the Presence of us:V. Mc BeeDavid (his mark) Campbell

Philip and Susannah kept their bond to each other and had 13 children, 8 born in North Carolina and 5 after arriving in Johnson County, Missouri.  There is also a set of twins at the Payne Cemetery who died in Mar 1846; they are at the foot of Philip's grave, with name "Kate" and one "infant."

The oldest child listed in the census records was Jacob Barnett, being born in 1822, NC.  He came with Philip and Susannah to Missouri but since Philip and Susannah didn't marry until July of 1824, many have speculated that Jacob was from an earlier marriage.  Although no other records can be found in North Carolina.  Philip did not give Jacob land when he divided up his lands for his other children.  Jacob already had 40 acres of land.  In his father's will, he is "not forgotten" and Philip left him $25.00.

Will of Philip Barnet dated 1877

In looking over old wills, it may be noted that the SALE OF PERSONAL PROPERTY papers can give a real feeling of knowing that person.  But it also shows the fact that women lacked rights when it came to the items in her home.  The same home she helped build, acquire, cleaned, repaired, washed, and even made, like the quilts that would be worked on for months, from scraps of clothing that would be rags and thrown away, the hand crochet items to put on furniture to help soften or to keep the item clean, the rugs that she made to keep the husbands' feet warmer, again from scraps, nothing belonged to the wife.  All had to be sold.  In Missouri, at least until 1941 when my grandmother, Camley Elizabeth Scott Lauck, had to abide by the law, the wife only received a child's share.  So if they had 13 children, the estate of her husband would be divided 14 ways.  That would leave the widow and mother dependent on one of the children.  The children would be allowed to buy back items from the estate, as shown in Philip's sale.  His son Philip Jesse Barnett bought many items of his father's at the sale.

In the following document the process can clearly be seen that the wife owned nothing but her clothes.  The one item that the wife could own was her jewelry.  If the husband was well off he would buy his wife a piece of jewelry as a gift, she was then allowed to keep it by law.  The jewelry was like money in the bank, which by the way, women were not given the privilege of having the account in only her name; the banks required a man's signature as overseer of the woman's financial affairs.  A woman's jewelry was highly praised, and was the only asset a woman had as her property. Older members of my family called the jewelry "My run-away money."

Philip Barnet died 20 Nov 1877 near Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri.  He is buried at the Payne Cemetery beside his wife and near many other members of his family.  The headstones of Philip and Susannah Barnet stand higher than most and shows clearly on the west side of the gate as you walk into the cemetery.  They read of a tale of many years' ago that allows a person to keep in thought what might have been.  Knowing that Philip Barnet came from Amsterdam, Holland, possibly alone, and had 11 children living to adulthood, his name is being carried on by so few.  Philip had 3 boys and 2 of them died without issue.  Be it known clearly that the girls married and carried on his bloodline and heritage.

Not a lot is known about Susannah Flanigan Barnet, but can trace her life through the births of her children, which was 24 years of child bearing. She was born 26 Dec 1802 in Lincoln County, North Carolina. Susannah died 19 Dec 1872 in Johnson County, Missouri, and is buried in Payne Cemetery next to her husband, Philip. In the North Carolina census records and land records shows there is a Philip Flanigan with wife named Susannah, in Lincoln County.  I suspect that this Philip and Susannah Flanigan were her parents. 
There is also a will in the North Carolina State Archives by a John Flenagin, leaving his "bounty lands granted and given to me by the President and Act of Congress for my services as an enlisted service man . . ." to his father Philip Flenagin and his mother Susana Flenagin. John was a "soldier in the U. S. Service for the span of 5 years . . ." dated 1813. The age and location is a near sign of this possibly being our Susannah Flanigan's brother?

Before listing the children of Philip and Susannah Barnet, a record of the census' reports must be added here for the use of the next researchers.  Between the census records, Payne Cemetery tombstones and family records, one cannot determine the proper accounting for some of the children.  Mainly Kate, Mary A. and an infant and John.  Here are the census records in order from 1830.  I have found nothing earlier in North Carolina or other states.

In the 1830 Lincoln Co., N. C., census pg 168: Head of Household - Philip Barnet, besides Philip's family, a female between 50 & 60 is listed as living with them.  This could be the mother of Philip or Susannah. No slaves or free colored.

Philip and his family were in the 1840 Johnson County, Washington Township, Missouri, pg 6 with two in agriculture.

The 1850 Johnson Co., Mo. census shows all the children, their state of birth shows that Nancy D. Barnett was the first child born in Mo., and that the oldest daughter Mariah, age 25, was married to Jesse Grice, age 77, and living with her father, Philip.

1860 Johnson County, Washington Township, Missouri.  #832-909
Barnet, Philip, 67, born Holland, $2500 real estate, $500 personal property. Susannah, 55, born N. C., John, 27, Susanna, 22, Phillip J., 14 (grandson). Emily is divorced and living at home, Nancy D. has married and her husband, Frederick Shonhorse,(sp) age 26, born Hanover, Germany, is also living with Philip.

1870 Johnson County, Grover Township, Warrensburg, Missouri.
Barnett, Philip 77Dmst (?)  (May stand for Darmstadt) $5000 real estate, $2500 personal
   Susannah    67Penn.  (Not correct b. N. C.)
   Jesse          24Mo.  (Phillip Jesse Barnett, grandson)
   Elizabeth    14Mo.  (b. ca. 1856, no Elizabeth matching this birth date can be found.)

At the Payne Cemetery and close to Philip and Susannah are 3 tombstones:  Infant "Kate Da. of P & S Barnet died Mar 4 1846." Stone is broke in half.  The other stone reads: "Mary A. Da. of P & S Barnet died Sep 24 1855 age 22 yrs 8 mo 15 d."

John Barnet's age is also in dispute.  Frances Carter in her book states John was a twin to Mary A. b. 9 Feb 1833.  In the census records he is not listed as a twin and this fact was usually written very clearly.  I agree that if Lava was born 3 Oct 1831 and Mary A. was born 9 Feb 1833, there is not a wide enough time span between the two for Susannah to have another child, unless they were born prematurely, which is unlikely also.   At the Payne Cemetery Lava's tombstone reads that he died on 2 May 1855 and was 24 years 7 months 29 days.  In working this back, I get a date of 3 Sep 1830.  This date would fit with the census not showing twins.  This date would give plenty of time for Susannah to have her son John in 1832.

Children of Philip and Susannah (Flanigan) Barnet:

610. Jacob Barnett, born 17 Oct 1822, North Carolina, by unknown Mother.
611. Mariah Frances Barnett, born 5 Mar 1825, North Carolina.
612. Polly Barnett, born 28 Nov 1826, North Carolina.
(Refer to John Payne Family History)
613. Kate Barnett, born 11 Aug 1828, North Carolina.
In the Payne Cemetery is a stone with a death date, Mar 4 1846.
614. Lavie M. Barnett, born 3 Sep 1830, N. C. Little is known about Lavie because of a short life span.
He died 2 May 1855, with headstone reading 24 years 7 months 29 days, at the Payne Cemetery, near
Knob Noster, Missouri. Lava bought land the 23rd of Aug 1854, which was located in Section 8 Township 47 Range 24 SW¼ NW¼ and on the 28 Sep 1854, Lava bought land also in Range of 24 at NW¼ SW¼. He married Mary Ann Bradley in Johnson County, Mo. on 25 Mar 1855. Only two months later, Lavie dies.  There is no evidence as to the cause of his death. His father, Philip Barnet, was appointed administrator, 24 May 1855, of his estate since Lavie died without a will. Mary Ann Barnet, widow, still living in Johnson Co., Mo. No children were located for this union, nor were there any children mentioned in probate papers. Mary Ann Barnett married, 2/ 15 Jul 1856, to Jernon S. Burnett. This marriage is recorded in the Johnson County Marriage Records 1835-1879, pg. 41. But has not been traced.

615. John Barnett, born 1832, North Carolina.
616. Mary A. Barnett, born 9 Jan 1833, North Carolina. 
  In the Payne Cemetery, next to her mother is Mary's headstone with
"Dau of P & S Barnet, died Sept 24 1855,age 22 yrs,8 mos 15 days."
617. Nancy Delano Barnett, 10 Jan 1840, Missouri.
618. Clara C. Barnett, Jun 1834, Missouri.
619. Susannah Barnett, born 24 Oct 1837, Missouri.
620. Emily Jane Barnett, born Feb 1841, Missouri.
621. Phillip Jesse Barnett, born 15 Dec 1845, in Johnson County, Missouri. Phillip is often confused with his nephew who has the name Phillip James Barnett. Some feel this is the Phillip Barnett that died in the well from the newspaper article, I do not. Phillip JAMES Barnett was the Phillip Barnett who died by drowning. Phillip Jesse Barnet married 14 Dec 1873 in Johnson Co., Mo., with the record being recorded in Book 1, page 312, to Martha Jane Briles, daughter of Noah and Calley Briles. She was born about 1854. No children or census records were located for Philip and Martha Barnet.

Also an infant daughter Barnett, died Mar 1846, buried Payne Cemetery, Knob Noster, Mo. No other information.

Each child will head his own chapter.

610. Jacob Barnett, son of Philip Barnet, born 17 Oct 1822, Lincoln County, North Carolina.  From Philip Barnet's will it can be surmised that Susannah Flanigan was not Jacob's mother.  Philip leaves all his children property and money except Jacob and almost as an afterthought, Philip mentions Jacob as "not forgotten" and leaves him $25.00.  At that time in history, the eldest son was the principal inheritor of a father's estate, if he had already inherited from his father; this was usually stated as so in the will.  Jacob was born before the marriage bond of Philip and Susannah was dated and may well have been a son born from a first marriage of Philip Barnet.

Jacob married 1 Jul 1851, in Johnson County, Missouri to Emily Anne (Marshall) Goins, daughter of Thomas and Martha Marshall.  (Refer to Marshall Family History)  Emily was born 27 Aug 1823 in Virginia (Albemarle Co.?) and died 6 Mar 1880 in Johnson County, Mo., and she is buried beside her husband Jacob, in Payne Cemetery.

Emily had first married 23 Mar 1843 to Pollard Goins and had four children:
A. Martha Goins, born about 1844, died 12 Jan 1916, married James Bernard, (1841-1918); 
B. Mary F. Goins, born about 1846 and married a Mr. Payne, there is one known daughter: Millie A. Payne, born 1872, Missouri;
C. Thomas W. Goins, born about 1850. 
D. Malinda Goins.

No death date can be found for Jacob Barnett.  In the 1860 Johnson County census, he was married and in the 1870 census, the family is living in Linn County, Missouri.  Again by the 1880 census, he is back in Johnson County, Missouri, as a widower.

Jacob and Emily (Marshall) Barnett had 5 children:

622. Phillip James Barnett, born 23 Mar 1852. (See below)
623. John H. Barnett, born 1854. (See below)
624. George Washington Barnett, born 1856 in Johnson County, Missouri. He married 10 Feb 1884 first to Luticia Jane Amick, she was born 5 Jun1866 and died 17 Mar 1900, soon after the death of their 10th child who had died two days after birth.  Luticia was the daughter of David and Martha Jane (Amick) Beaty. George Barnett moved from Johnson County to St. Clair County, Mo. just 2 miles south of Oyer, Mo., and married the oldest Amick girl (The Amick's had moved from Johnson County to St. Clair County in 1882.)  They had seven children and Luticia and the baby both died after the birth of the last child. George and his brother went to The Dalles, Oregon soon after Luticia died.  In 1901, George sold his land in St. Clair Co. and took the seven living children with him. 
(Children's names were late arrivals.)
625. Bertha Ellen Barnett, b. 29 Apr 1888; d. 16 Mar 1959
626. William David Barnett, b. 24 Dec 1890; d. 4 Sep 1948
626a. Ernest Jacob Barnett, b. 26 Jul 1891; d. 2 Aug 1981
626b. Earl Albert Barnett, b. 24 Mar 1895; d. 22 Oct 1964
626c. George L. Barnett, b. 28 Dec 1896; d. 21 Jul 1961
626d. Roy Phillip Barnett, b. 22 May 1896 (?); d. 8 Jan 1977.

George, 13 years later married second Rhoda (Mc Kinley) Bull Nunn.
Rhoda who had gone to visit her sister Salley (Mc Kinley) Amick who married Lucinda (Amick) Barnett's brother, Lawrence Amick, she had also gone to The Dalles, Oregon.  Derl Barnett said, "Kent/Grass Valley, Oregon." Descendants are still living in the area.
622. PHILLIP JAMES BARNETT            610. JACOB          609. PHILIP BARNET

Phillip James Barnett, son of Jacob and Emily (Marshall) Barnett, born 23 Mar 1852 in Johnson County, Missouri.  He married 25 Oct 1874 to Edna Mariah Strickland, daughter of Lawson and Opal (Mikels) Strickland.  Edna Strickland was born 30 Mar 1852 and died 6 Apr 1937, 26 years after her husband drowned.  A copy of Phillip's bible was located in the Johnson County Historical Library in Warrensburg, Missouri.  This revealed the information about his wife and children and can be documented.  It states, "They were married at the age of 22."  Sadly no date was given.
NEW...  NEW  2006   (I did notice that you have Phillip James Barnett married to the wrong Edna Strickland.  Edna Mariah Strickland was the daughter of Elihu Chester and Harriet (Moulton) Strickland.

There is much confusion between Phillip James Barnett and his Uncle, Phillip Jesse Barnett.  Phillip's middle name, James, was not used in most records; much was added to one or the other of the boys in error.  The Journal Democrat, Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri, dated Jan 13, 1911, reads as follows:  "Phillip Barnett, a well known farmer, losses his life accidentally.  No Particulars.  News reached Warrensburg yesterday as the J.D. was going to press that Phillip Barnett, a well known farmer 14 miles north east of the city, had lost his life by being drowned in a well.  Barnett's body was rescued from the well by William Applegate, a neighbor.  No further particulars were obtainable at the time of going to press.  Barnett leaves a wife, one grown daughter at home and three sons in St. Clair County." 

This item in the newspaper has been credited to Phillip Jesse Barnett AND Phillip James Barnett.  With backing from the page of Phillip James Barnett's bible, showing his death as 11 Jan 1911, it is clear that he was the one who drowned in the well.  Although his descendants do not record his death as thus.  From Derl Henderson Barnett's letter I received in Jan of 1991 has this information about Derl's great grandfather.  "Phillip died while hauling some water for the cistern with horses and a big barrel on a sled.  The barrel was overturned and he was face down in a small puddle of water with the team nearby."  Derl writes: "My story of Phillip James Barnett's death came from his granddaughter Gladys (Alkire) Kirk as told to her by her mother who was pregnant with her and was the one who went to find her Dad and upon finding him got the neighbor man to help." 

In 1900, Phillip and his family are still in Johnson County, with some of his children still at home, Ida, James, Louis, and Nellie. In all Phillip and Edna Barnett had nine children:
627. Ira Barnett, born 27 Jun 1875, Missouri.  In the 1900 Johnson County census, Ira is shown to be in Warrensburg, at 319 East Market St., with his wife Nannie M., who is 20 years old at that time and born Apr 1880 in Kentucky.
628. Jasper Elvin Barnett, born 15 Jan 1877.
629. Della M. Barnett, born 8 Dec 1878, Mo. buried Payne Cemetery. Tombstone reads, Della M. Barnett.
630. Infant son, born 13 Jan 1881, died 2 Feb 1881.
631. Ida Elizabeth Barnett, born 13 Feb 1882.  The bible page shows her in the death's section but unreadable. Derl Barnett has given the date of 4 Sep 1941. She married William Alkire, who was born 8 Aug 1875 and died 2 Sep 1960.
632. James Luther Barnett, b. 3 Jan 1884, d. 10 Aug 1953. James married Mrs. Mary (Baird) Morris, widow of Ira Baird, with 2 children.  They had two more children, a girl and a boy named Lloyd Barnett who was living in Oregon in Dec of 1986.

Jasper Elvin Barnett, son of Phillip and Edna Barnett, born 15 Jan 1877, St. Clair County, Mo., and died 6 Nov 1913. He married Cornelia May Amick, daughter of Martha Amick who had a sister Cornelia. Cornelia was born 15 Jan 1877 and died 6 Nov 1913.

Derl Barnett, grandson of Jasper tells this story. "Jasper Barnett came to St. Clair Co, Mo. to help his Uncle George (Barnett) who had married Luticia the oldest Amick girl, May's older sister.  They were married in Jan 1899 and Jasper soon settled on 80 acres southwest of the Amicks.  There he had a sawmill on Sims Creek where he sawed the lumber for his house, barn and other buildings.  Jasper became ill and died at age 36 of typhoid fever, which he got from drinking from creeks coming back from doing winter work in Arkansas.  May stayed on the farm and raised the 3 small children and had Christmas at her home for all the children for more than 60 years until she could no longer live by herself.  They are buried at Pleasant Springs Cemetery, St. Clair County, Mo."

They had children, Lytle, Homer, and Elsie:

642. Derl Henderson Barnett b. 13 Dec 1929 and married Dana Lee See, she was born 16 Jan 1932. Derl has quite a history of experiences. "My college education began in 1947, at the age of seventeen, one week after completing high school. I worked my way through college in four years and three months by the following was: six months for a boat repair and refinishing company (before and after work, about six hours, was spent in my uncle's grocery store for room and board); three months for Austin Been, farmer and rancher, handling the various types of equipment necessary to operate 4000 acres in Western Kansas; nine months teaching school between my sophomore and junior years; and by working part-time in a drugstore, and a restaurant. After receiving my degree (B.S. in Education) in August 1951, seven weeks were spent with General Motors Corp. in quality control, while waiting to be called into the Naval Air Cadets.

During the two years in the United States Navy, navigation, serology, engines, principles of flight etc., were studied for about seven months.  The last years was spent in a Naval education office making and administering tests and as an instructor for personnel needing remedial work.

I returned to General Motors, in Kansas City, Kansas, when released from the Navy.  The work consisted of coordinating the efforts of the tool designers and the toolmakers in the shop.

The school year 1954-55, I taught in Butler, Missouri under Mr. Charlie Frazier, now a principal in the St. Louis area. During the morning, I taught reading, language arts, and social studies to an eighth grade class.  In the afternoon, four classes of physical education were on the schedule.  My junior high basketball teams were beaten only three times during the season.

The year of 1955-56 found me teaching in Colorado near Greeley; where Dana, who is now my wife, was attending college.  I served as assistant elementary principal among my other duties.  1956-58, my wife and I have taught in the Glencoe Public Schools for Dr. Paul Misner, former president of the A.A.S.A.  I have been teaching 6th and 7th grade mathematics and science.  During this period, we have toured over 10,000 miles in Europe by auto, and a large part of the U.S., Canada and Mexico.  The summer of 1960, we attended the University of Southern California where I had planned to work on my doctorate.  In 1961, a fine son arrived and we purchased a home in Northbrook. 1965-67, Group Rep. for the Group Dept. of The Equitable (N.Y.) Third largest Insurance Co. in the Equitable Bldg., Chicago. 1967-71, Group Rep. for Equitable, lived in Milwaukee area and had the Western half of Wisconsin.1971-82, Group Rep., Mgr. of Peoria Group Office.

611. Mariah Frances Barnett, daughter of Philip and Susannah (Flanigan) Barnet, born 5 Mar 1825 in Lincoln County, North Carolina.  Mariah died 6 Mar 1916 at the age of 91 years and 1 day, near Knob Noster, Missouri, and is buried at the Payne Cemetery. 
My father was 16 when his Great Great Grandma Barnett passed away; she had gone blind 45 years earlier from an eye surgery to remove cataracts.  The Doctor did surgery on both eyes at the same time and she never recovered any of her eyesight.  One of the kids had to sit next to her whenever she had a cup of coffee.  She would ask, before each sip, if there was a fly in her coffee. 

Mariah (some records show Maria) married first on 6 May 1847 to a neighbor friend of her father's, Jesse G. Grice.  The story was told that the marriage was arranged because the property neighboring the Barnet land would make a nice addition to the Barnet estate, and since Jesse Grice did not have heirs.  But the land that Jesse Grice owned at the time of their marriage was 2 miles to the east of Philip Barnet's land.

Jesse Grice was born in 1783 in South Carolina.  After coming to Missouri in 1832 he bought land in Washington Township, Johnson County, Missouri, on July 11, 1834 and Sep 5, 1836 in section 6, he bought land and on Aug 19, 1850, he bought land in section 3, just north of Philip Barnet, his father in law.  Jesse was also a witness to William Marshall on a deed in 1835.  Clearly Jesse and his first wife Martha, were early settlers in Johnson County.  Martha Grice came from Alabama with her husband and died in 1847 and is said to be the first buried in the Payne Cemetery, then Jesse Grice was buried beside his first wife.  After Mariah married Andrew Martin Payne, the cemetery grew to be known as the Payne Cemetery, which is from the land originally owned by Philip Barnet.  The 1850 Johnson Co., Mo. census shows Mariah, age 25, was married to Jesse Grice, age 77, and both living with her father, Philip.

Jesse Grice left a will that reads as follows:
"In the name of God, Amen -  I Jesse Grice of the County of Johnson and the State of Missouri being weak in body but of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following that is to say, First my will and desire is, that all my just debts be paid out of my estate, by my Executor here after named.  I also will and bequeath to my beloved wife, Maria Grice, all my real and to her heirs of her body, during her natural life or widowhood and in the event of her marrying again, that she take one third of my land, all the personal estate, and that the other two thirds of said land my desire is that (it) go to the heirs of her body, and after her death, that all the property pass to the heir of her body, and in the event of her decease without child or children, my will and desire is that all the property, both real and personal, shall be divided equally between Emile Jane Barnet and her brother Philip Jesse Barnet, the sister and brother of my said wife Maria Grice, to them and to their heirs and assign for ever, And I do hereby nominate and appoint my beloved wife, Maria Grice my Executor of this my last will and testament in testimony whereof I have here unto set my hand and affixed my seal this 16th day of May AD 1850.  Witness: David Mock and John Payne      (signed)  Jesse G. Grice.
Dated 16 May 1850.  Johnson County Court House. 

This will was filed for probate in Johnson County, Missouri, on 14 May 1855.  Philip Barnet and Richard Marshall were securities for the probate court.  There were no children from this union.  Just 10 days later, Philip Barnet signed as administrator for the estate for his son, Lava Barnett, deceased.

Mariah's father, Philip Barnet, deeded land to each of his children a year before his death.  Mariah's property deed reads as follows:  "Know all Men by these Presents, that I, Philip Barnet of the County of Johnson in the State of Missouri, have this day, for and in consideration of the sum of One Dollar and parental love and affection from my daughter, Maria Payne to the said Philip Barnet in hand paid by Maria Payne of the County of Johnson.........., that is to say: Ten acres of land.  The W½ of the E½ of the NE¼ of the SW¼ of Section Two (2) in Township Forty-seven (47) of Range Twenty-four (24) West of the Principal Meridian. Said ten acres to extend across the above described 1/16 from South to North and of such width as to include one fourth of said 1/16 be the same more or less than ten acres, further and hereafter to be designated as Lot No. 3 in the division of said afore described 1/16 or 40 acre tract. Dated 6 Jul 1876." 

Two months after the death of her first husband, Mariah Barnett Grice married on 8 Jul 1855, to Andrew Martin Payne.  Son of John Payne and his first wife.  (Refer to Payne Family History) The following item is from the Standard-Herald newspaper of Warrensburg, Missouri.  "Maria Barnett was born in South Carolina, (incorrect, she was born in North Carolina.) March 5, 1825.  She was twice married, her first husband's name being, Jesse G. Grice.  She married the second time to Andrew Payne, July 8, 1855, and seven children were born to this union, four of whom are living, Jesse, who resides at Bucklin, Missouri; Mrs. Sarah J. Porter in whose home she died, John W. Payne of Margo, Oklahoma; and Andrew, who resides at the old home north of town.  She is also survived by 21 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren, 4 sisters and one brother.  Mrs. Payne died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Porter, about nine miles north of town on March 6, 1916, at the age of ninety-one (and one day).  She had been a member of the Methodist Church for fifty years and had been blind for forty-five years.  She was a loving mother and bore her afflictions with Christian fortitude."

Andrew Martin and Mariah (Barnett) Grice Payne had 7 children:
(Numbers are from Payne Family History)
493. Jesse Phillip Payne, born 24 Apr 1856.
494. Sarah Jane Payne, born 19 Apr 1859.
495. James W. Payne, born Jan 1860.
496. Susannah Payne, born 1861.
497. John William Payne, 6 Jan 1863.
498. Mary Elizabeth Payne, about 1867.
499. Andrew Martin Payne Jr., 8 Dec 1868.
These children and their families can be found in the Payne Family History Chapter.


615. John Barnett, son of Philip and Susannah (Flanigan) Barnet, born 1832 in Lincoln County, North Carolina.  John came with his parents and siblings to Johnson County, Missouri.  Not much is known about him.  John died and his father, Philip Barnet, was appointed the administrator of his estate on 15 Jul 1864.  An appraisement was taken of John's estate by Richard Marshall, Solomon T. Taylor, and Milton Swope, and the following was listed in said estate.
1 trunk    $4.00
6 chair frames6.00
1 feather bed & bedding 12.00
1 looking glass     2.50
1 saddle        12.00
1 two horse plough    2.00
1 one horse plough    2.00
1 sythe & cradle        2.50
½ reaper & horrow  50.00
1 grey mare      140.00
1 sorrel mare    100.00
1 white steer                   10.00
1 brindle cow & calf       12.00
1 red & white cow          15.00
1 white heiffer                  7.00
1 sow & shoats               15.00
Total  $505.00

In the final settlement, Albert Amick had made two loans of John and owed the estate for loans, $13.98 and $72.33.  For a total estate value of $591.31 but after all expenses were paid, the courts turned over to John's father, Philip Barnet by his signature, the amount of $318.32.

In Frances Carter's book which she published on the Barnett's, states that John was a twin to his older sister, Mary who was born 9 Jan 1833.  I do not believe that John was a twin.  In all the census records he is listed as a single child and is assigned his own age, never once listed as a twin or sharing an age with either his older brother or his younger sister.  The birth dates of the siblings may be incorrect.  John's "will" is not recorded but his father was appointed administrator of John's estate on 15 Jul 1864 and does not mention a will, a wife Mary or any children.  John may have died in the Civil War but no records were found to prove such.


617. Nancy Delano Barnett, son of Philip and Susannah (Flanigan) Barnet, born 8 Jan 1840 in Johnson County, Missouri.  She was Philip and Susannah's first child to be born after moving to Johnson Co. Mo.  Nancy died 29 Jan 1928.  On 22 Dec 1859 she married Fredrick Wilhelm Scharnhorst, born 14 May 1834 in Wolfeld, Hanover, Germany.  Fredrick Scharnhorst is not related to the other family of Scharnhorst's in that area.

Knob Noster Gem: "Another pioneer resident of Johnson County, Mrs. Nancy Delano Scharnhorst, passed away at her home north of Knob Noster, Jan 29 after along illness.  The deceased, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Barnet, was born in Johnson County 8 Jan 1840, and grew to womanhood in this community.  In Dec, 1860 she married to Frederick Scharnhorst, who died 33 years ago.  To this union 12 children were born, of whom 7 survive.  She leaves 123 grand-children.  She passed away within one mile of the place where she was born."  Dated 9 Feb 1928.

716. John Henry Scharnhorst, born 4 Sep 1860 in Missouri, died 23 Apr 1877 in Johnson County, Mo.  "His death occurred from hanging in a apple tree.  Whether it was accidental or deliberate depends on which family tradition you want to accept.  Since the incident occurred during a period of history that the local newspapers have been destroyed and no death certificates were required, no proof exists except that he appears in the 1870 census and a tombstone was erected in his memory in the Payne Cemetery, which reads as follows: J. H. Scharnhorst born 4 Sep 1860, died 23 Apr 1877, son of F. and N D. Scharnhorst.
Family Tradition #1: John Henry was picking apples and was using a rope lasso to get higher in the tree and accidentally hung himself. (Author's note;  Apples do not ripen in Mo. in April.)
Family Tradition #2: John Henry was pruning an apple tree and playing around accidentally hung himself.  (Author's note;  Apples are not pruned in April in Missouri either.)
Family Tradition #3: John Henry was hung as a horse thief.
Author's opinion:  None of the stories above are completely true. That possibly a little truth in each but none of us will ever know the whole truth." From Frances Carter's book.

618. Clara C. Barnett, daughter of Philip and Susannah (Flanigan) Barnet, born Jun 1834 in Lincoln County, North Carolina.  Clara died in 1916 and is buried in the Payne Cemetery, Knob Noster, Johnson County, Missouri.  On 28 Feb 1852, Clara married Wiley Maddox, son of John and Mahalia Maddox, he was born 22 Jun 1826 in Morgan County, Kentucky, and died in 1913 and is buried next to Clara in Payne Cemetery.

Johnson County, Missouri 1881 History Book, pg 906.  "Wiley Maddox, P. O. Grover, farmer and stock raiser.  The subject of this sketch is a native of Morgan County, Kentucky, and was born June 22, 1826, and when about 11 years of age his parents came to Cooper County, Missouri in 1837.  He lived there about 3 years, then moved to Morgan Co. Mo., where his parents lived about 4 years, then he came to Pettis County, then to Johnson County, where he has since lived.  In 1850 he took a trip to California.  He remained in the gold state about one year, then returned to his home by way of Mexico.  He married Feb. 28, 1852 to Miss Clara C. Barnett, and from this union they have two children, Mary Jane and James H. Maddox.  In 1858 he came to his present location, where he has improved 517 acres of land and is now among the most successful pioneers.  He was a Union man during the war." 

In the 1900 Johnson County, Mo. census Wiley and Clara Maddox is the in Grover Township with 2 servants, George Haul and Rex Dudley.  Wiley has stated that his father was born in Virginia and his mother in Kentucky.  Clara is listed as having two children with one living. 
Wiley and Clara (Barnett) Maddox had 2 children:
730. James H. Maddox, born ca. 1854 in Johnson Co. Mo. from the 1900 census it seems that James died before 1900.  He may have died in 1881.
731. Mary Jane Maddox, born ca. 1856 in Johnson Co. Mo. and died ca. 1920.  She married John Hall, date unknown. 
If the above information were correct, Mary Jane Maddox would have been 12 years old when her first child, James, was born. 

John had 11 children:
All the children were born in Johnson County, Mo.
732. James Hall, born about 1868.
733. Willie Hall, born about 1870, married and had at least 1 son.

742. Sadie Hall, born 1899, married Otis Cox and had 6 children.

As can be seen by the numerous grandchildren (36) already listed, that the Hall line is quite extensive and those who are interested in pursuing this family should read the SCHARNHORST - LYNCH - BARNETT - THORNTON book by Frances Carter, shelved at the LDS Library at Salt Lake, Utah.
