In the Daviess Co KY marriage index I found a marriage for JOHN F BARNETT in 1872 to EVALINE KELSO of Meade Co KY.
The 1880 censu of Daviess County Ky, Knottsville area, lists the following:
John Barnett age 30 b around 1850
Wife, Evaline age 32
son-Sam age 9
dau-Claud age 6
son-George age 3
son-Absolem age 1

Evaline and the children never seem to appear again in any census or KY death index.

In 1903 a John Barnett(age around 53) married Phronia Clark and I know know they had at least two children, Emma and Archie. Phronia (Frona) died in 1914 and is buried at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery. After her death I believe that John Francis Barnett married Frona's older sister, Sophia Clark Hohimer in 1915. Sophia and John (age around 61 or 65--writing hard to read) had at least one daughter, Bessie born in 1918 and died in 1919 (I have her death certificate and birth listing).
I assume John and Sophia divorced as he is not listed with her in the 1920 census. John Francis Barnettt died in 1929 (have his obit and death certificate)

Is the John F Barnett married in 1872 to Evaline Kelso and the John Barnett listed in the 1880 census the same John Francis Barnet that married Phronia Clark and Sophia Clark Hohimer?????

John Francis Barnett was the son of Archibald (Archy-Archie) Barnett and Sally ????. They are listed in the 1850 census of Jessamine Co Ky and Archy and Sally are in the 1880 census of Daviess Co, Knottsville.
