Re: William New family of Caldwell CO

The only info I have is at our website, so I can't help further.

But I do vaguely recall that the Barnetts (I think them) had a private graveyard somewhere in Caldwell County and that someone had moved the graves or just the headstones to a Luling City cemetery in Caldwell County, but I may be wrong about this... It could have been another family name too...

If there was a family plot and Abby was a widow she might have gone back "home" to be buried (?).

You probably also know that Joseph Barnett had property in San Saba County as well as Caldwell County, (5000 acres total?) and some of this property passed down to his children.

As best I recall the headstone-moving info was in one of James R. New's book' he peddles. (This is not a recommendantion to buy his book.) He has or had a "New" website at
http://www.realtime.net/~jnew/

You might try your question there or to him.
Sorry I can't help.
John.
