Alright so I haven’t been able to find much information on the Barnetts of Rutherford County, NC. Some sources online show a large Barnett family that moved to Rutherford County from Virginia but then most of them left as early pioneers of Kentucky. I do see a William Barnett in the 1810 and 1820 census in Rutherford County. In 1830 William Barnett is in Buncombe County, NC.

Please leave a comment below if you have additional information about William Barnett and W. T. Barnett that you would like to share.

About the Logan Project: I possess a box of 170 documents passed down 6 generations in the Logan family that originate from John Logan (1775-1841) of Rutherford County, NC. These documents are mainly receipts that show the various business and legal dealings of many different families from Rutherford County, NC. I will be posting these documents on this blog in chronological order. The scanned images of these documents are the copyright of Jonathan Medford.
