Thank you for that information! I found Hugh Barnett many years ago and thought there HAD to be a connection, and I do believe there is somewhere. I am thinking that our Zimiri's father is a brother to Hugh. Zimiri's family did end up in TN after KY but I was never sure which county. I knew Hugh's family had some grandsons named Zimro and Zimri and other variations. I even have Hugh's will to be sure our Zimiri isn't part of that family and he isn't listed there. I didn't know where they were buried. Which county is this? Is Medina a township?
Glad to always meet a new cousin from Zimiri and Emaline! I come through Rachel's brother, Stephen Bluford Barnett. That was my first time to the cemetery. My parents visited there nearly 40 years ago. I am pretty certain that their headstones are made of limestone which all of the area is made of. That's what was available and that is what most headstones were made of at that time and it is very soft and I am sure acid-rain will ruin it faster than not, but that is what we are stuck with. I am with you on the thousands of descendants! It is always a treat to meet them especially those interested in researching. I have been working more than 30 years to find Zimiri's parents. For many years it was presumed that he was the son of Samuel that married Eliza Joiner but that has turned out to be false. Hope to meet you one day.
Thanks for your message! Donna
