Subject: Hannah Cooley m Luke Barnett/Burnett
From: "Michael Cooley"

To: "John Cooley Mailing List"

I may be onto something here:

Luke Burnett was born in 1778 on Reedy Branch in Mecklenburg County,
Virginia. He died on 13 Dec 1859 in Hempstead County, Arizona [sic] at age 81.

Luke married Hannah ________.

There was a Carter Barnett in Surry county in 1790. He had a son named
Luke. That family moved to TN. Carter apparently had a brother named Luke.
The above page, however, does not give Luke a brother named Carter.

I am looking for a Luke Burnett brother of Carter, born in Dinwiddie Va
about 1762. His father was Richard. My 3rd g.grandfather Carter Barnett
had a son Luke born about 1800 and I believe this carter and the ...

Luke is living with his son Luke in 1850. We can follow the movements of

I'm guessing that the date of his death is known because he might show up
on the 1860 mortality schedule for Arkansas. Does anyone have access to

There's also a Luke Burnett in Spartanburg in 1800, 1810 and 1830. There
were a large number of them, including Carter Burnett. The families I've
looked at all seem to go back to Essex county VA.

Anyway, the real encouraging thing is that Luke's wife is known to have
been Hannah.

If this is him, it would suggest that his wife was dead by 1840:

Regarding the 1850 census, "Lanoh" is almost certainly "Sarah," as elsewhere in the same page.
