Interested in finding out who "Barnett" was. Was he a decentant of the Barnetts' in Stafford County, VA??
Virginia Gazette and General Advertiser (Davis),
Richmond, November 5, 1794.
TEN DOLLARS REWARD. RUN-AWAY from the subscriber, in King William County, the fourth of July last, a negro man named Barnett, of a yellow complexion, about thirty years of age, about five feet eight inches high; he has lost a bone out of the first joint of one of his thumbs; he carried with him when he went away a blue cloth coat and breeches, a pair of boots, two Virginia cloth shirts, and some others not worth mentioning. I expect he will endeavour to suppose upon the Public as a free man, and that he is either in Richmond to the neighbourhood thereof. He sometimes undertakes to make shoes, but is by no means a master workman. I hereby forewarn all masters of vessels to employ, or carry the above slave out this state.--Any person who will deliver the above negro to me shall receive the above reward. SARAH TRANT. King-William, October 23d, 1794.
