States: Florida: DeSoto
I am trying to find information about my Dad's family!
His name was Marvin Eugene Pendarvis, born in Floral City, Citrus County, Florida on February 15, 1925. His parents were John Henry Pendarvis and Josephine (Barnett) Pendarvis.
I have a very old photograph of Josephine's parents that simply says: "Great Grandmother Barnett" this picture looks like it was taken sometime in the 1880's. I also saw an article that mentioned E.M. Barnett and J.H. Pendarvis relating to the early history of Desoto County. I have another photo taken in the 1880's with Josephine and her parents standing outside their home with Josephine holding an infant and her father holding a young girl of about six years old. On the back of this photo is: "E.M. Barnett" and then "Arcadia". I want to believe that Josephine's family roots are in Arcadia by this information. I hope that someone will know something about E.M. Barnett and/or J.H. Pendarvis and contact me. I will greatly appreciate this. Sincerely, Brandon Flowers
