Ezekiel Barnett was born about 1777 in South Carolina (per census reports), was in the Pendleton, SC area around 1800, moved to north Alabama and died in
Lauderdale Co., Alabama July 17, 1871.
It is believed that his father was a William Barnett but have not been able to find clear documentation for that connection even though I have seen some postings on
websites and have had email correspondence with some other descendants of Ezekiel.
Descendants of Ezekiel in a direct lineage from participant 0017 include Irvin Yancy Barnett - born in SC but died in
Lauderdale Co. Alabama (1815-1903); William Ezekiel Barnett - born in Alabama but moved to Wise Co., Texas (1849-1924); H.W. Barnett of Texas (1885-1971); participant's father Loyd Barnett Sr. born in Texas but
moved to Colorado (1912-1992); and participant born in CO (1930+) but a long time resident of Arizona.
