Barnetts and Listers of Putnam County, Indiana

The Barnetts and Listers were neighbors and their proximity led to various interrelationships.

Extracted by Roy Richard Thomas

ECW, p. 13: ". . . Solomon Barnett owned (June 1840) a farm in Putnam County, IN on the National Road. Four houses away lived Susan Lister, an elderly woman whom it is assumed was Elisa's mother. Ten years before (1830), Nathan Lister was also living in the country with one son, one daughter, and his wife. John Gibson Lister also named a son Mathias Nathan, which could be the name of both his grandfathers. Both Nathan and Susan Lister would have been born in the early 1790s." In 1850, Solomon was still living in the same place. John G. Lister and his wife Elizabeth were living three houses away, probably on the land that had belonged to Susan Lister. Elisa (Lister) Barnett and her brother John G. Lister both received property at the same time, probably upon the death of their parents (13 May 1847 & 15 May 1847)." ECW, p. 70: "Additional Lister family information. Nathan or Nathaniel Lister was one of the original settlers of Clay County, IN and owned a considerable amount of property. On 18 Sep 1833 he transferred some to a man named William D. Lyster, probably a brother. Nathan owned Sections 19 and 21 [prob. 640 ac. each], Pleasant Gardens, Putnam, IN. Letters of administration [signed] 18 June 1836 by Susan Lister states her husband, Nathan, is now deceased. They had two minor children, no names given. however, ten years later, probably at the death of Susan, John G. Lister and Solomon Barnett both own part of Section 19, which had been inherited from Nathan and Susan Lister. this seems to be quite conclusive evidence that Elisha (Lister) Barnett, wife of Solomon Barnett, and John G. Lister were indeed children of Nathan and Susan Lister of North Carolina."
