I have done my best to explain what is the service of Sgt James Barnett Sr.
and the service of his son Capt. --Col. James Barnett, Jr. I hope that you
can understand what I have written. I believe that I have sent you the wills
of both of them.
Col James Barnett did not have a son Reason-- His children as per his will
were John, William, Rachael, David, James. Ann and Margaret. His son William
was my gg grandfather. I have no Idea who Reason's father was. The lady that
joined the DAR under Reason used Col JAMES BARNETT as her ancestor and he
was not. Later , as others joined under Reasonn they added some of the
proper children in the children space on their applications.
I contacted the DAR and sent them my research. They have corrected their
records to show the proper children. They show the above children as the
PROPER children of Capt. James Barnett. He was not made Col. until after the
"William Madison and Col. James Barnett were soldiers in the battle of
Guilford 1n 1781"-THIS IS CORRECT
" Colonel James Barnett deposes at house of David Wade, in Montgomery
> County, 3rd, February, 1802, that on an expedition against the British in
> Spring of 1781, William Madison and deponent expecting to go into battle the
> next day, stepped aside privately in the night and made their verbal wills
> and called upon witnesses to testify the same." THIS IS ALSO CORRECT. COL
JAMES, WILLIAM MADISON AND DAVID WADE WERE NEIGHBORS AT BIG SPRING. COL
JAMES BARNETT WAS A CO. BY 1782 BUT NOT IN 1781.
> THIS IS INCORRECT--"He fought in the French and Indian War in 1760 and in the
American Revolution" It was the father--Sgt James Barnett and not his son
Col James Barnett who fought in the French and Indian War. He received a
land grant in "Kentucky Country" for his service. CAPT JAMES BARNETT WAS THE
ONE WHO FOUGHT IN THE REV. WAR.

I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A CORRECTION TO THIS LINE.
COL JAMES BARNETT , WIFE RACHAEL WAS THE SON OF SGT JAMES BARNETT AND
REBECCA . COL JAMES DID NOT HAVE A SON REIZEN, HIS CHILDREN WERE JOHN,
WILLIAM-MY GG GRANDFATHER, RACHAEL, DAVID JAMES, ANN AND MARGARET. THE WILL
OF COL JAMES WILL WAS PROBATED 7 4 1808. THERE IS NO REIZEN LISTED IN HIS
WILL, LAND RECORD OR IN ANY OTHER RECCORDS IN BOTETOURT, OR MONTGOMERY CO. VA.
JAMES WAS A CAPT IN THE REV WAR AND WAS NOT MADE COL. UNTIL 1782 AND AFTER
THE REV WAR WAS OVER. HE CAN NOT BE LISTED BY THE DAR AS A COL. DURING THE
REV WAR, ONLY A CAPT.
THE DAR HAS CORRECTED THEIR THEIR RECORDS TO REFLECT THE ABOVE INFO. THEY
NOW HAVE A COPY OF THE WILL OF COL. JAMES. AND THE WILL OF SGT JAMES ON FILE
ALONG WITH A LARGE AMOUNT OF OTHER RECORDS.
I HAVE TRIED TO FIND THE PARENTS OF OF REIZEN BARNETT FOR THE DAR WITH NO
LUCK. AS FAR AS I KNOW, THE DAR HAS NOT FOUND A FATHER FOR HIM EITHER. IT IS
POSSIBLE THAT THE FATHER COULD BE ANOTHER JAMES BARNETT AND THAT COL JAMES
OF BOTETOURT. MONTGOMERY CO. VA. WAS USED BECAUSE OF HIS DOCUMENTED
SERVICE. I DO NOT HAVE AN ACTUAL COPY THE MARRIAGE BOND OF REIZEN. ONLY AN
ABSTRACT FROM A BOOK. IF YOU CAN FIND A PLOTO COPY OF THE BOND, MAYBE IT
WILL LIST A FATHER OR BROTHER ETC.
I HAVE SAR CERTIFICATES FOR CAPT JAMES BARNETT, HIS SON PVT. WILLIAM
BARNETT AND A CERTIFICATE FOR THOMAS MILLER THE FATHER OF WILLIAM'S WIFE ANN
MILLER ALL THREE SERVED FROM BOTETOURT CO. VA.
JOHN, WILLIAM AND ANN MOVED ON TO LINCOLN CO. KY. . THE REST STAYED IN
BOTETOURT AND MONTGOMERY CO.
I AM SORRY TO BE THE ONE TO TELL YOU THIS HOWEVER THE DAR HAS A CORRECTION
DEPT. NOW, SO THAT THEY CAN CORRECT SOME OF THE OLD INFORMATION THAT WAS
