About Lydia Barnard

Lydia Barnard (b. bet. 1838-1841)

Taken from “Genealogy of Samuel Barnard and Descendants, Eight Generations, 1800-1954” by Noble Edgar Nay, 1955.

Edited by Deanna Horton Mitts

Lydia was the ninth child, born in Tennessee sometime between 1838 and 1841. There is no record of either her birth or death. The reason we place her as the ninth child is that Aunt Jane spoke of her as “Little Lydia” which would indicate that Lydia was younger than Nancy Jane. At the present time, Minnie Horton has a small cream pitcher of a child’s set of dishes that she (Minnie) says Aunt Jane gave her, and stated that it was little Lydia’s cream pitcher. Aunt Jane also told Mrs. Horton that Lydia, her sister, died when she was a small child.

Mrs. Carrie Gardner also is sure that she heard Aunt Jane talk of a sister, Liddia, or perhaps Lydia. There are many more of the same opinion. And so, we conclude that Lydia was a child of Samuel Barnard, died young and should be the ninth child.
