William Barnet(t) b. abt 1792 Co[c]ke Co, TN, War 1812 Bounty Land Award

In 1819, William Barnet, then in New Orleans, submitted a request for a Bounty Land award based on his service in the USA during the War of 1812.Included in his request was his 1818 USA discharge issued at Fort St. Carlos, Barancas, West FL. The discharged recorded that he had enlisted for 5 years on 18 July 1813, that he was born in Coke [Cocke?] Co, TN and was 26 years old (e.g., born about 1792). He requested bounty land in IL and reply to be sent to Baton Rouge, LA.
President James Monroe awarded William Barnett under award 21108, 160 acres, SW section 14, township 54 north, range 23 west, Territory of Missouri North.[This parcel is now in Carroll Co, MO.]
Carroll Co, MO records that the first entry for this parcel was William Barnett in 1819. Unexplainably, an unbroken chain of records show this identical parcel passing through inheritance to several Barnett generations that descend from a different and well-documented William Barnett, reputed, but not yet proved, to have received a War of 1812 Bounty Land award.
Seeking information from descendants of William Barnet(t) who have information about this situation or what became of William Barnet(t).
