Joseph Barrett

Query by megsmom

I am looking for info on Joseph Barrett. He is my 4th GGrandfather.I have found very little on him. He was born in 1812 in Canada. He emigrated to the US in 1852 (I think.) He settles in Seneca Falls, New York. I kinow of one child that he had (John C. Barrett-born Oct 1843.) I have no idea who his wife or parents were. All I know about the wife is that her last name was something like "Flourmont". Her father was a notery in Paris. Anyone else from this line of Barretts or know anything? Please contact me .

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This is a great help! Do you know anything about Joseh Barrett or his wife's parents? Do you have any photos, documents or anything like that you can share with me? (I'm also a scrapbooker and would love scrap those.) Where did you find the info yhou have? I had used all the resources that had or knew about without going to France!

My great-grandmother, Louise Barrett (John C. Barrett's daughter) married Frederick C. Duell. One of the interesting things about John C. was that he ran away from home and joined the cirsus. (That is fact!) he toured with Ringling Brothers as a strong man and also caught cannon balls! I even have a few photos of him and the muscles on this guy! I have a few photos of Louise Barrett Duell and have a copy of their wedding certificate. I also have a copy of Louise's baptismal certificate. I can scan and send you some copy's of those things if you send me your email address. I look and see what else I have that might be of interest to you.

I guess that with Joseph I. Barrett being our common ancestor that we're some sort of cousin so many times removed. I'm never quite sure how that really works.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

I am sorry I have not responded sooner but I am going through more info. I got most of my info from my Grandmother's things (Margaret Barrett Edwards). I have a family bible from my great grandfather (Peter Barrett) with some information. I was looking through some photos and came across two which had names on the back. They are Earl Duell (age 3) and Clifford Duell (age 4). Are these any of your relatives? I thought they might be a relative of yours and of course mine. Do you live in this area or are you on facebook? I am still sifting through pictures and trying to figure out relationships. I have many pictures which don't have names on. It was very interesting to learn of your information. My email is [email protected]

Yes! They are my relatives. Earl Duell (age 3 ) is my grandfather's brother. Clifford Duell (age 4) is my grandfather. Could you email them to me? I am on facebook as Beverly Duell-Moore. I live in Ohio. If you can send me the photos you have no names for , maybe I can help you. I'll send you an email so you'll have my email address. I havedn't had a chance to do any more research on Joseph Barrett and his family.

Sorry I haven'been on this site for awhile. So much has been going on in my personal life and i haven't had all that much time to do genealogy research. I came to this site today to read the past posts and ran across yours.
Have you found any more out on Joseph Barrett or his wife? I don't remember ever seeing a friend on FB from you or an email. (Could you send me those photos through email and i'll see if I can help you identify them. If I don't know who they are maybe one of by aunts will.I'd like to get back into the researching soon.
