I seem to be having the same problem as others in here.

Elige "Lige" Barnett/Barnette was my GFather b.1891 in Hyters Gap VA. m. Bertha Wimmer d.1951

s/o William Garrett b. 1842 & Tabitha Little/Lyttle Barnett. William Garrett was s/o John Barnett & Keziah Snead and had several siblings.
I lose the line with John who is supposedly a s/o a James Barnett of KY/OH/VA....??
Last month, I located Rev. William Garrett Barnett's grave in Hyters Gap VA in one of two Barnett Cemeteries. I have yet to visit the 2nd and I understand it is somewhat overgrown and neglected. Only one marker in the former...Wm.Garrett Barnett.
I really appreciate the fact that members of the Counts family, who are also in my line, cleaned up the cemetery where WG Barnett and others are buried a couple years ago. I had no idea it even existed until last month, as both Gparents died in 1951 and my Father died in 1974, having never told me about it..
I have a partial listing of those "others'", if anyone is interested. And, as I learn more about the 2nd Barnett Cemetery I will update my post.

Elige and his family moved to Damascus VA in 1923 and in 1932 they moved to Bristol,TN-VA. He, Bertha, & otis are buried in the Wimmer Family plot at Knollkreg Cemetery in Abingdon.VA.
