WV.

Notes for JESSE LAZEAR BARNETT:
Jesse Lazear Barnett was named for Justice of the Peace, Tom Lazear's 
son, General Jesse Lazear.  Tom Lazear married John Barnett and 
Margaret Stoton on 29 Nov 1821.

Jesse Lazear Barnett was 15 years older than Nancy Younkin.  He met 
Nancy at the Jack Town Fair and thought she was the prettiest girl he 
had ever seen with her long dark curly hair.   There is a saying that 
you will never died happy unless you've been to the Jacktown Fair, 
which is in Greene county, PA.   Jesse Lazear Barnett and Nancy 
Younkin married in 1870.

Jesse Lazear served in the Union Army in the Civil War.  He was a 
Captain in Co. B, 7th WV Infantry.  He was wounded twice during that 
war. 

His obituary was in the Cameron News.  

 "One by one the old veterans of the Civil War are answering the last 
roll call.
On Thursday, June 22nd at 10:00A.M. the recruiting officer of heaven 
called the name of Captain Jesse L. Barnett, and the spirit of this 
brave man took its flight to the land where battles are no more; 
where he was called to lay down the weapons of the militant and to 
take up the regalia of the triumphant. 
Captain Barnett was born in the year 1839, and had he lived till 
August the 15th he would have been 71 years old.
He was united in marriage to Nancy Younkin in the year 1870.  To this 
union were born eight children, six daughters and two sons.  One son, 
(Charles) died at the age of four.  
The surviving are John Barnett, Mrs. Margaret Hughes, Mrs. Joseph 
Bushager, Mrs. Daisy Bowers, all of Cameron, West Virginia, Mrs. 
Jessie McCullough of Littleton, W.VA., Mrs. Maude Carney of Salem, 
W., Va. and Mrs. Charles Mahan of Hannibal, Missouri. Captain Barnett 
also has four brothers and a sister living:____Barnett of 
Moundsville, W.VA., S. H. Barnett, Wind Ridge, PA, A. R. Barnett, Ha-
---, PA, A. B. Barnett, Ryerson Station, PA, Mrs. I.C. Booher of 
Washington, PA.  Captain Barnett enlisted in the service of his 
country August 7th, 1861, Company B, West Virginia Infantry.  He was 
promoted to Second Lieutenant, and soon promoted to First Lieutenant, 
and was commissioned Captain May 19th, 1865.  He was discharged from 
the service July 1st, 1865.
He was as brave a man who ever shouldered a musket.
He had a paralytic stroke the 17th, 1884; not long after suffered a 
second stroke- - - third stroke came upon- - -day.  He had been an 
invalid many years.
He resided near Cameron- - - - number of years, surrounded by his 
noble wife, as good a woman as God ever gave to man- - - -children of 
his bosom, - - - - everything in their power to make his days 
pleasant and happy.  He was a member of the Presbyterian Episcopal 
Church.  The funeral took place at the family home conducted by Rev. 
J. I. Gregory.  Interment in the Cameron cemetery."

The above obituary was typed  from the original in the possession of 
Mary Louise Carney Null, on January 17, 1984.  The blank spaces 
designate the words that are not legible.

Jesse Lazear Barnett is listed on the 1890 Special Schedule for 
surviving soldiers.  The schedule reveals he was wounded in the hand 
in Dec 1862 in the Battle of Fredericksburg and then wounded in the 
right arm October 27, 1864, now paralyzed.  My grandmother, Maude 
Barnett said after the war he was unable to raise his right arm.

Notes for NANCY YOUNKIN:
Nancy Carney Simms remembers her grandmother, Nancy Younkin Barnett 
as always having cake or pie on the sideboard in the dining room.  
Although Nancy Younkin Barnett had a large family to raise, she took 
foster boys to care for and raise.  When she was older, it took 
several people to take her hair down and wash it.  She rebelled 
against that as well as taking off her high button shoes.  I suspect 
she was becoming senile.   There was always rock candy in the house 
which seemed quite a treat to a youngster.  Grandma Barnett as she 
was called did not like doing dishes, so always had to go feed the 
chickens at dish washing time.  In the years to come, anyone who left 
the room when the time to clean up came was always called, "Grandma 
Barnett"!

I have a newspaper clipping of the obituary of Nancy Barnett but it 
does not give the paper.  It was in an old scrapbook and sent to me 
by Mrs. Janie Parson of Wind Ridge, PA.    It reads:
"CAMERON, W.Va., Dec 30--Mrs. Nancy L. Barnett, aged 83 years, one of 
the best known older residents of this community , died about 7:10 
o'clock this morning in her home in Maple Avenue, Cameron.  she had 
been ill for several years.
Mrs. Barnett was born in Greene county, near Waynesburg, a daughter 
of Charles and Nancy Younkin, and came to Cameron 50 years ago.  Her 
husband, Captain Jesse L. Barnett, died several years ago.
She was a lifelong member of the Presbyterian Church and was active 
in its various organizations.
Surviving are the following childre: Mrs. Charles McCollough, Mrs. 
Margaret Hughes and Mrs. Daisy Bowers, all of Cameron, W.Va.; Mrs. 
Maude Carney of Hundred, W.Va.,; Mrs. Ella Bushager of Texon, Texas, 
; Mrs. Charles Mahan of Hannibal, O, and one son John Barnett of 
Summerfield, O.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete."
{One mistakes in this is Hannibal is in Missouri. The time she had 
been in cameron was hard to read, it may have been 56 yrs}

Oakland, MD  Garrett County14, son of HIRAM CARNEY and HELEN RITER.  
He was born January 21, 1875 in Silver Hill, WV, Wetzel County15, and 
died July 20, 1916 in Salem, WV, Harrison County.

Notes for MAUDE BARNETT:
My maternal grandmother, Maude Barnett Carney was a telephone 
operator.  She always said she would never marry as women were always 
calling to ask her to look out her window in the telephone office and 
see if their husband was in a certain saloon.  In the early 1900's 
there were several saloons in Cameron, WV. 

My grandmother,  told me while visiting her family in Cameron, WV  in 
July of 1916,  she felt a foreboding.  Like someone was walking on 
her grave.  I didn't understand that when I was young.   However, 
having buried two children and a husband, I do now.   She cut the 
trip short and went back to Salem, WV with her two young daughters.   
The day of the accident, she told me she had made a fresh blackberry 
cake, which was Frank Carney's favorite.  He had that with his lunch, 
and then went out to put up signs for his drugstore with a young chap 
who worked for him.   Shortly afterwards, Frank Carney was killed in 
a tragic car accident.  He was too close the side of the road and 
went over an embankment.  It was an open top car and he was killed 
instantly.  The young man with him survived.  

When Frank Carney died, Maude did not know how to write a check.   He 
had always taken care of everything.  My grandmother said he would 
tell her he didn't care how much she slept in the daytime, just be 
awake and up when he came home from the drug store.  I have a small 
ice cream parlor chair that was part of a set of two chairs and a 
table in his drugstore for my mother Nancy, and her sister, Mary.   
After Frank's death, Maude sold the drug store and moved back to 
Cameron, WV to be near her family.   Maude and her widowed sister, 
Margaret Barnett Hughes went into business together in Cameron, WV.  
The Hughes & Carney Dry Goods and Notion Store was located in the 
J.I. Spragg building on Main street.  This building was built in 1896 
according to "The History of Cameron, West Viginia".  This was 
written in the late 1920's by the Educational Committee of Women's 
Club.

At the time of Frank's death, Maude was not well herself.  She always 
told me that everyone said she looked more like a corpse than Frank.  
Her telling the story with such descriptive phrases certainly 
captured my attention as a child.   Maude had exploratory surgery in 
Wheeling, WV after Frank's death.   She was opened up in the front, 
and then turned over and opened up in the back.  She had a bruised 
kidney, filled with infection from a horse and buggy accident before 
she married Frank.  They removed the kidney and put in drains and for 
about a month, she was in critical condition.  One wonders how 
someone could survive such an ordeal before antibiotics and all the 
modern technology today.  

My grandmother told me, the old family doctor from Cameron, WV  took 
the train to Wheeling to see her.  He told her she had two little 
girls who had lost their father and she had to have the will to live 
as the girls needed a mother. As a child,  I remember always asking 
to see her scars from that surgery and to tell me the story again.  
She always said, "oh, you've seen them a hundred times" but she never 
failed to show them again! 

Maude was a very proud and stylish woman.  She always wore her 
stockings and, I might add, her corset.   She cleaned up every 
afternoon with a fresh dress and sat on the porch in the summer.  She 
would visit with neighbors walking by the house.  I remember the 
large wide brim straw hats she wore and also the elbow length gloves.  
I remember being so proud of how she looked when we went to church.    

I was always fascinated watching her wash her kid gloves and using a 
candle to stretch the finger part of those gloves as they dried.    
She used to wear those small glasses on a chain that you just "put" 
on your nose to read.  She told me when the eye doctor wanted her to 
wear regular glasses with temples over the ear, she refused.  She 
said he said, " Vanity, vanity, Miss Barnett." 

When my grandmother, Maude came to visit we always gleefully asked 
how long was she staying.  My mother thought it a rude question to 
ask a visitor,  but we wanted to make sure there was time for the 
wonderful treats she made.  Sticky cinnamon buns, homemade taffy she 
taught us how to pull, homemade noodles and deviled stuff crabs are 
some favorite items I remember.  I have her recipe for oatmeal 
cookies and the taffy that I have made through the years.

We would climb into her bed in the morning and she would tell us 
stories.  They were so grand, as soon as the last word was spoken my 
sister, Kathryn and I  would say, " Tell it again, Mom."  She would 
laugh and say "you've hear it a hundred times", but she would tell it 
again.

When my first daughter, Jane Ellen was dying, she came to stay with 
me.  She said she couldn't bear me staying with a dying child alone.  
My husband had been transferred to Chicago.  We had bought a house 
there and he had to go on to the job.  I will never forget her 
devotion to me at that terrible time in my life.  She understood my 
pain and fear.   

When as a young girl I would whistle, she would tell me,  "Whistling 
girls and crowing hens, always come to some bad end."   I certainly 
didn't understand how my whistling would bring me to a bad end!  I 
guess it was not ladylike and as I grew older, found that amusing.   
I found a plaque that says that very think, and it hangs in my home 
as a rememberance of my grandmother Carney.!  We called our 
grandmother, Maude Barnett Carney,  "Mom".  

My grandmother was a very "fussy" housekeeper.  I recall how once a 
bed was made, you were not to sit on it to disturb those sheets and 
bedspread.  She all but sweep under your feet when you entered the 
house to get any dirt you might track in with you.  She always set a 
nice table.  Even if she were eating alone, she always put a sugar 
bowl on the table without the proper sugar spoon. Milk, always in a 
small pitcher, never poured from a bottle, even for one person. 
Napkins folded properly, and always, eat with one arm in your lap.  
Never elbows on the table.  For only an 8th grade education in a 
rural community, she was truly a lady with class. 

Maude was a member of the Cameron United Methodist Church and a 
charter member of the Hundred W.S.C.S.

Maude's funeral service was held at the Hunt Funeral Home, Hundred, 
WV on Monday, March 27, 1972.  The Rev. Sherman Davidson officiated.  
Interment was in the Cameron Cemetery.
