The area where Zadock & Henry and their families homesteaded
in Greene Co. was the home of Chief BlackHawk and there are a fewIndian story's. It has been said that the Indian's didn't
bother certain family's during the up-risings because they had received help from them and were friends. During one such up-rising,
a mother hid her children in the oven, thinking that they would be safe there if the house was torched. As the government
moved the Indians north & west @ 1870, our family's followed. Some of them were also married into family's that had Deacon's
& Elder's in the Primative Baptist faith. Some of Zadock' & Polly's children married into the Catleberry's, Dean's
and Handlin's. They moved with their church family's north to Hancock Co., IL. @ 1850
then west to Mo. & Ks.

I am a retired Air Force nurse & live
in Winchester, Scott Co.,
IL. Mary lives in Roodhouse, Greene Co., IL. Terry in White Hall,
Greene Co., IL. and his
brother Donnie lives in Edwardsville, IL. All
four of us descend from Jacob Barnard's youngest son, Henry Barnard who
married Martha Ruyle.
We believe that Zadock & Jacob were brother's who married Short
sister's. The family's
moved together, married into the same families
[ Short, Overby, Ferguson & Mayberry ], named their children alike
witnessed legal forms. Zadock was one of the bond's on Jacob's
children legal suit #5569 and brought three
of Jacob's older children with him
when he moved to Greene Co., IL. in 1830.
On Greene V. Mayberry & Lucinda's
marriage lic. there are slips of
paper stating that Greene's father was Orin Mayberry & Lucinda's father
[ Zadok ]Barnard. Somewhere in my notes, I have Orin's wife
as Lucinda, but no maiden name. We have not been able to move
from Sumner Co., Tn. although we did find Orin Mayberry in Rockingham Co.,
N.C. @ 1790.

Both Zadock & Mary "Polly" Barnard Sr. are missing from the 1850 Gr.
Co., IL. Fed. Census.
and only Zadock Barnard Sr on the 1855 State
Census as head of H/H in Gr. Co., IL.
we don't know much about Mary "Polly" or Rutha [ Jacob's wife either]
except we suspect they were sister's. We know Isaac Short died in
Sumner Co., Tn. ? could have been their father. There were lots Short
family's in the same area where our family lived in Gr. Co...in
many they name a community & cemetery after them. That's one of the
problems..It's either feast or famine when it comes to our family. For
example; 13 Barnard's as H/H on the 1820 Sumner Co., Tn. Census. We're
sure they were related........?????
According to some of our family historians, the Barnard Castle was
offered to them, however they would have had to give up their
citizenship..& they said NO WAY! I see the Queen still goes there on
We have never found
the death or burial information on Zadock or Polly Barnard Sr. There are other missing family members, but we have big problem
with our cemetery's here and almost no early death records until after 1916. Besides the big blizzard of 1830, there was a
Typhoid & Cholera epidemic that wiped out a lot of large family's. In some Twp's, people who had contagious disease's
were not allowed to be buried in the cemeterys..so they buried them on private property. We know they were on the 1830-40
Fed. Census for Greene Co., missing on the 1850 & only Zadock listed as head of H/H on the 1855 Gr. Co., IL. State Census.
Some of our Historical/Genealogical Society's read a lot of our early established cemetery's in 1980, however, a lot of them
had already been abandoned or destroyed by vandals, farming & the rath of nature. These member's were older member's and
they went out to read the cemetery's equiped with only a pad & pencil. If a stone was on the ground or buried..it didn't
get read. With this thought in mind, Mary & I went out searching and became
flustrated with the general condition.
If the cemetery was boarded, it got fairly good maintance otherwise stones were all over the place. After working 3-4 days,
we discovered that without help, we'd be working the rest of our lives..so we got the idea of enlisting the Roodhouse Boot
Camp to help. We suppied the equipment..they suppied the muscle. We worked right along side the inmates & guards. As we
got a cemetery cleanned up...we read it & Mary put it on line with the Illinois
Cemetery Project. Last spring, the
Gov. closed our Boot Camp, but it has been reopened as an intermediate prison. Mary & I have both had family medical problems...so
we haven't done much work this year. We enjoyed the hobby & have @ 26 cemeteries reclaimed. The hardest part is to get
someone to keep them clean and maintained.
Though Zadock Barnard Sr. family 1st show's
on the 1820 Sumner Co.,
Tn. with 10 children, he was also on the Tax list there in the early
1800's. He & Jacob
were both on the 1820 census, Jacob with 7 children
& both 26-45 years old in agriculture. Zadock bought 640 acres
in Sumner Co., Tn. on 14 March 1803 from Bright Herring for $400. This
land was part of a land grant to Bright
Herring by WIlliam Looney and
located near Mitchelville, Tn. on the Summers Branch of Drakes Creek. [
This land is
about 1/2 mile from the KY/Tn. boarder ] Deed Book # 3,
Page 443-4. On 5 May 1804, Zadock sold 1/2 [ 320 acres ] to Jacob
Barnard for $200. Deed Book #3, Page 522. On 8 May 1830, Zadock
Barnard Sr. sold 265 Acres to Andrew Harper for $335.
Deed Book #12,
Page 343. Zadock & his family appear on the Oct. 1830 Greene Co., IL.
census living in the Athensville
Twp. with 13 children. Jacob
Barnard sold some of his land off before he died in 1821. We have
land sales for the time around his death in Nov.1821. We
surmise that Rutha, Jacob's wife & children lived on the
Zadock's land until they came to Greene Co., IL in @ 1835.
One of our family historians said they went
to Calhoun Co., IL.
find them there! In 1847, they sold all but 1.5 acres to their son's
Zadock Jr &
WIlliam. About this time William married Lucinda Williams
Handlin and moved with her parents [ Prim. Bapt.] to Hancock
They lived near Elisha Barnard's son's Jacob & Andrew Jackson Barnard [
Whose father-in-laws were Prim.
Bapt.] in Rough & Ready, IL. 1860-@ 70.
We thought maybe they went there...No records found! About 1870,
Barnard Jr & his family moved to Douglas Co., Mo. They moved
around quite a bit in Mo. living in Bates, Barton, Cass
& Jasper Co's.
One of Zadock Jr's. Son, Joseph Burton Barnard lived in Kansas City.
sold real-estate &
insurance. My Henry Barnard & his 2nd family moved
to in LaCgyne, Linn Co., Ks. @ 1865-7 which is right on the Mo./Ks
border. We often wonder if they visited each other.......
You asked about the spelling. We've found
Barnard spelled a number
of ways from one census> another. We've found Bernard/ Barnett etc.
the same for Mayberry/Maberry/Mabry.
Don Collins who wrote a book on
Maberry family Hx says there are 630 ways to spell it. I have asked
around this area,
if there was a reason. Everyone says it's because of
the enumerators spelling & they don't want to bother changing
Same thing for how it's pronounced. Maaayberry/Mabry We laugh here because
6 miles separate Ba'nard
from Bar'nard. I was shopping at the Kroeger

The Story of Elisha Barnard
Elisha Barnard was born @ 1800 and died @ 9 Aug. 1842 in Athensville,
Greene Co., IL. Who were his parents? We suspect that he was the son
of Zadock Barnard Sr. & his first wife [?]. He was listed on the 1840
Greene Co., IL. Federal census as Elisha Barnard Sr. 30-40. "Barnard
Lore" tells us that some of the early Barnard's in S. C./N. C. married
Cherokee women. They were dismissed from the Quaker Society because of
this. We know that this Elisha Barnard made at least two trips between
KY/TN > IL.@ 1828-36. We suspect that he was a wagon master.
One Bio. about Reuben C. Bradley, tells about him being the "Bond
Boy" since the age of 5-6 years old, driving the lead Ox team for Mr.
Barnard on a trip from Tn. > IL. @ 1836. This Elisha Barnard was on
1820 Sumner co., TN. Census, married, age 16-26, wife 16-26 & one male
under 10. He married Mahalia Maberry in 1831 in Greene Co., IL. &
returned to ?Ky/TN where their first two children were born [ James &
Oren ]. He died @ 9 Aug. 1842 & is listed as being buried in Jackson
Cemetery on the Scottville Road. [ No grave found .
Our Elisha Barnad [ listed as Elisha Barnard Jr. on the 1840 Greene
Co., IL. Census ] married his widow 15 Feb. 1843.
There was a Petitioned Probate Will dated Oct. Term 1849, brought by
"our" Elisha & John Armstrong. It mentions that Mahalia was the wodow
of this Elisha Barnard [Sr.] & the current wife of Elisha Barnard [Jr.]
& his heirs were William E. Barnard, Andrew Jackson Barnard, Jacob M.
Barnard, Martha, wife of Runey Campbell, James Barnard, Oren Barnard,
Nancy Barnard & ELizabeth Barnard, the last four being minors. Claims
of debt were $290. & land owned in Sec. 21, Twp. 12N, Range 10W, 3rd P.
M. containing Approx. 30 acres. We also found a WIll dated 5 Jan. 1841
which was actually a list of debts & credits proven & allowed 9 Aug.
1842. Land sale was on Jan. 1850 with settlements of debt.
[ Paper's on file at Carrollton Court House, Greene Co., IL. ]
Kathryn Barnard, wife of James Merle Barnard of Burbank, OK. & I
corresponded for 15-20 years. Her husband is a descendant of Andrew
Jackson & Margaret [Moody] Barnard. He looks Indian. Course black
hair, high cheek bones, nose & dark complexion. He staed that family
history was that ELisha Barnard Sr. was 1/2 Cherokee on his parents
& that his first wife was of Unchi Indian descent. Margaret Barnard &
one of her sons livied on an Oklahoma Indian Reservation in her later
years & died there. Here, I will mention that Margaret's father,
Spencer Moody was a Elder/Deacon n the Primative Baptist Church.
Jacob's M. Barnard's wife father also. Both of these families moved
from Tn. > Greene Co., IL. > Hancock Co., IL. All of them moved
west to Ks. & Ok @ 1870. We've found letters of transfer church to

Don't think we didn't have a fun time figuring out this one!
That's all for today!
Don't know where to start.....so here goes.
All we know is what family story's have been told. We don't know
where Gertude Barnard came up with the information on Zadock Barnard
That he was born 28 Nov. 1779 Baltimore, Maryland & married Mary
Short in Memphis, Tn. 11 June 1801. Gertrude had said they came here
from Orchard Knob, Ky. It took us quite a while to find Zadock & Jacob
Barnard in Sumner Co., Tn. And that's where we hit the brick wall. I
think between the four of us [ cousin's ], we have every paper ever
generated in the Gallitin, Tn. Archives on Barnard's.
Here's some of our thoughts & arguments;
1. We feel that Zadock & Jacob Barnard were brother's because of the
land sale in Sumner Co., Tn. & Jacob's Law Suite & Estate Settlement.
Also that they all settld here in @ the same area near Athensville, IL.
The land sale records in Sumner Co., Tn. state that Zadock payed cash
hand for his land in 1803...so if you figure that by the given date of
birth he was 22 years old when he got married to Polly & 24 years old
when he purchased the land....where did he get that much money? He
would have had to inherited it. Zadock starts clearing the land &
comes along the following year, 1804 & they divide the land & use the
remainder of their money to buy stock etc. The area in Sumner Co.
they settled was @ Mitchelville..which is rock & hilly. Mary's been
there. She said she doubted any crops could be raised, except for
garden produce or their own use to feed. Jacob's Estate sale had lot's
of sheep, hogs & horse's. It's close to the Barren's being @ 1/2 mile
from the Ky. boarder. [ Simpson Co., Ky. ] What happened to Jacob that
he died in 1821? Land records indicate that he was selling off small
parcells of land from 1818-21. There were several merchantile store
accounts in the Estate Settlement which lead us to believe that Jacob
was sick. Lot's of liquid iron, rum & whiskey. Did he have Malaria or
T.B.? Back in those days..it was called comsumption [ T. B. ] and
families were wiped out. A lot of the early settler's to this area
within a few years from it & the blizzard of 1830. Thyphiod Fever &
Cholorea wiped out quite a few @ 1850.
2. There were 13 Barnard's as head of household's on the 1820 Sumner
Co., TN. Fed. Census. As far as we can tell, most of these came across
the Cumberland from the north/east. Were they related? Probably
cousin's. "Old" Elisha, Jacob & Luke were 45+ on that census. We've
been able to pin Old ELisha & Jacob's family down pretty good.
to popular belief, We don't think Elisha & Rebecca ?Bradley Barnard
their parents. There is no mention of a Zadock in the Will & their
Jacob was still alive when Elisha died in 1834/5. Also, from what
records we've been able to find, most of these Barnard's came from
Guilford Co., N.C., Rowan Co., N. C., Rockingham Co., N. C. or
Pittsylvania Co., Va.
3. Why did Zadock Barnard Sr. get married in Memphis, Tn.? Of course
we can't find any record of this marriage or Jacob's either. It
to us that Zadock's & Jacob's parent came from the south...?Georgia..?
What we've found so far....

In 1783, a John Barnard listed as "Old" was outside of Freeland's
Station also known as "Dentris Lick" clearing brush with two other men
when they were surprised by Indians. The indian's killed them all, but
they cut off Barnard's head & ran off with it. This Fort/Station was
south/west of Nashville, Tn. A Walter Barnard claimed his father's
grant for clearing the land & some say that he [ John ] was the father
of the "Seven Barnard Brother's" who met after the Revol War at
Va. and went to different states. There are some researcher's who say
he had a Zadock & Jacob/Benjamin Barnard, but we haven't been able to
pin any of the dates down.
Well, that's about it. Now I will go back to your Indian records.

From "Barnard Lines", a
news letter published by Bill & Fran Barnard. Spring 1981, "Seven Brothers" by Clyde O. Barnard.
several sources come indisputabe evidence that seven brothers of the Barnard family met at Bristol, Va., at
the close of the Rev. War & there seperated, each going to a different state. This could only have been as the states
They came from England to Worcester, Mass., through Pennsylvania and all met at Bristol, Va. [some people
think at the home of their father]after the war was over. Their names were, John, Jonathan, Zadock, Ruben, Samuel, Joseph
& either Jacob or Benjamin. Jonathan Barnard, b-1 Jan. 1760, enlisted in the Rev. War at Amesbury, Mass., May 1775.
Re-enlisted at Cambridge, Mas. in 1776. met his brothers at Bristol, Va., then went to Ky. He married his wife, Obedience
"Biddy" ?Barnett in Goochland Co., Va. in Nov. 1784. His 1st three children were born in Va., they were George W. Barnard,
b-29 Dec. 1785, Elizabeth Barnard, b-20 Feb. 1788 & John Barnard, b- 14 Oct. 1791. Jonathon & family
went to Hawkins Co., Tn. in 1798 to be near his brother John, who preceded him there in 1782. He followed his profession
as school teacher until he went blind. He was still in Hawkins Co. in 1818 & in Clairborne Co. in 1820. In 1835, Jonathan
had his Revol pension moved to Mercer Co., Ky., giving as reasons, "that his family & friends had moved off to the west
& he could live cheaper in Ky." Jonathon died 16 Oct. 1835 in Mercer Co., Ky. His wife was living in Claiborne Co., Tn
in 1846.....There is more to this article by Clyde Barnard, especially about George W. Barnard, his grgdfather
