Hi Louisiana Researchers,
Maybe someone with family connections to Sidney Hardwick and William Hodge Barnhill who lived in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana can answer this question for me? Have the Fern Albritton book about the Barnhills who lived in Natchitoches and Sabine Parishes during the mid 1800s to early 1900s and she lists William Jackson Barnhill b. May 1830 as a son of Sidney and William Hodge.
Never does Miss Fern mention a William Young Barnhill as being another son and yet finding the same wives, Francis C. Gillespie and Ann Conklin, and same children attached to these two names so were they the same person? Tried looking at the series of censuses starting with 1850 McNairy County, Tennessee up to 1900 Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana and other than just William Barnhill the middle initial is sometimes listed as Y, T or J?
Land patents for 1860 list William's middle initial as Y and there is also church records from Beulah Methodist Church near Marthaville that state William Y. Barnhill was killed in a train accident in 1900. Miss Fern also states that William Jackson Barnhill was buried in the Beulah Methodist Cemetery but although it has been surveyed do not find his record?
