    Notes 
    • Harrison joined the Luminary Meeting House Church in Rhea County, on November 18, 1834 along with Sarah and Joshua Goad and others. This meeting took place in Sister Barnett's home. Later in July 1837, this was recorded "excluded the following named members for joining the Baptist State Convention and neglecting to attend their Church meeting when called upon: Joshua Goad, Harrison Barnett, Judith Castel, formerly Clough, Sarah Goad, Paley Robertson, Charity Tannie, and Martha Crawford".
      Harrison Barnett was a physician and a farmer.
      Information taken from Pg 141-142: Dr. Evertt Kings book "History of Maries County, MO"
      Was of early middle age when he came to Missouri in 1852. Mr. Barnett's first wife was Jane Robinson, marriage date: January 28, 1835, by whom he was the father of two children, Alvira born 1837 and Robert H. born 1839. Robert married an Orr and moved to and died near Forsyth, Taney County; Alvira married John McWhorter, who was killed in the Civil War leaving two children, Harrison and William. She afterward married Joseph York and the family moved to Cambridge, ID where both she and her husband died. Her sons still live there. The first Mrs. Barnett died about 1839 or 1840, and on December 8, 1841, he married Hannah Mariah Hassler, who was born in the state of TN November 22, 1823, and died in Maries County, December 23, 1887. Harrison and Hannah had eleven children. Dr. Barnett died May 8, 1902.
      Dr. Barnett "read medicine" under a neighborhood doctor, and shorty after attaining his majority began independent practice, which he followed for about fifteen years before coming to Missouri in 1852. He moved with horse-drawn wagons and was followed by a man named McCoy with ox-teams which carried most of his family's belongings. The horses were faster than the steers which necessitated McCoy driving late at night to catch up. Near Babbtown Dr. Barnett met up with Abraham Barnhart, who had just killed a deer, and on his invitation the family went to his house nearby to spend the night. McCoy, making his late drive, came on the pool of blood left by the deer while the men talked, reasoned that Barnett and his family had been killed, and by "laying the bud" to his steers succeeded in escaping.The doctor at first had not intended to locate in this part of the state. Indeed, it seems that he had no certain location in mind when he left Tennessee, but he liked this part of the county and settled just inside the northwest corner of what is now Maries County. His home and office at once took the name of Barnett's Station, by which name it was known for many years. He made his home at and near his first settling place, except the family refuged in Vienna in 1864 and lived there for several years thereafter.
