I am trying to get a lot more information on my Dad dad who is name is Roosevelt Jason Barnett and his dad name is Herbert and Herbert's dad name is Spencer Barnett. I do not have a lot of information this side of the family. I am also like information on the surnames I have on my site also. I also have some information on Herbert wife name Bessie Jane Honeycutt family. But I don't have a lot of information on my dad's mom's family her name is Hester Jones and her sister maiden name was Flora Jones also but was Flora Downs was her married name. There is story behind that my granddad wanted to marry Flora but she was married to a Downs man so he married her sister Hester. So when Flora husband died and then Hester died he married Flora. So that made her my aunt then my step grandmother too. I don't have much about them then just that. I was DNA tested for Prader Willi Syndrome which I was born with and it is a rare disease in 1988. Also I am trying to find a connection with my mother and David Stern Crockett and President Andrew Johnson. My mother and I was told by one of my mom's brother which she had 2 brothers and one of their wife that they lived in Oregon told us that my mom' mom told her that we were related some how to David Stern Crockett famous for the fight at The Alamo in Texas, and President Andrew Johnson and I done some research that connects us to President Andrew Johnson that one of his daughter married a Patterson that is linked to us in Washington County, Tennessee. My mother's mother and dad are first cousins with the same last surnames Leonard. My mother's mother came out the Romingers side. I am the daughter of Robert Barnett and Deanna Leonard. Her siblings are Roger Craig Barnett and Nancy Carol (Barnett) Kenner

Family Bible
Leonard Family Bible given to my grandmother Myra Belle Leonard by Summers Lyle Leonard, Sr. on their 10th anniversary in 1938 and they were married in 1928. This bible is 79 years old and by next year it will be 80 years old. My mother had the Bible rebinded because the pages and front and back was coming apart. Then her oldest sister took it and kept it and last year she had died when she turned 80 years old. So her husband thought that I would want the family bible so he gave it to me. So I have it when I am going to die I am going to ask my mom's youngest sister kid if she would want it so it can be kept in the family, she has kids who has kids now that would probably will want it. It has my mom's dad's immediate family birth, death and marriage. Then it has my mother's immediate family birth, death and marriages. Then the great grandkids birth, death and marriages in it. Please feel free, to visit my freespace page below and explore my heritage and meet some of my ancestors.

Hi Linda

Thanks for your message about the Moravian Religious Movement. However, it is not an area in which I have a great deal of interest.

Good luck with your project!


PS, I didn't create any categories for Moravians.

Hi Linda,

Thanks for the merge cleanup you did on Samuel Ball. That profile looks much better now.

Did you know that the FindAGrave template {{ FindAGrave |####### }} is finally officially approved for use? You can leave those if you see them when doing the cleanups.

Let me know if you have any questions,
