– Our JOSEPH BARNETT (b.1731) and wife Lucy WADE were in Goochland Co, VA when the births of their sons Joroyall b.1758 and Micajah BARNETT b. 1760 were recorded in the Douglas Register. The next place we find Joseph and his son JOROYALL BARNETT was in 1777 Surry Co, NC when they and James BLACKWELL witnessed the will of JAMES GLEN. Joseph BARNETT was in Craven Dist, SC (later Spartanburg Co) in 1780. Micajah married Jene GLEN, daughter of Tyree GLEN of Surry Co – we can prove this thru the Douglas Register and a Bible record giving us the birth of Jene Glen BARNETT. We know Tyree GLEN left children Susannah (married John BLACKWELL), Jene, Agnes, Jeremiah and Thomas. Joroyall’s wife was named Agnes. We would like to prove or disprove that Jene Glen’s sister AGNES GLEN married JOROYALL BARNETT. Can anyone help us? Joroyall and Agnes have several grandchildren named STARLING WILLIS BARNETT and I have wondered if that could be a BLACKWELL name, and if Agnes could have been a BLACKWELL.
