Siah Barnett family

(Last updated Dec. 22, 2016)

Siah Barnett was born about 1829-32 in Creek Nation, Alabama, the son of Thomas Barnett (Creek Indian) and his cook Hannah (black/mixed).  Thomas Barnett and Hannah had Siah Barnett, James Barnett, and Lizzie Asbury.   Thomas Barnett evidently had an Indian wife at the same time and had many children.  Thomas Barnett may have been a descendant of the Creek Nation trader Timothy Barnard (white) and his Euchee Indian wife.  Research into Thomas Barnett is difficult and his supposed connection to the Barnard family is unproven and largely based on later testimony.

Siah had a son named Trump Barnett by Celia a Creek slave. Siah also had a son named Jackson Barnett by "Thlesothle" a Creek Indian.

Siah Barnett's last wife was Mary Beams and they had at least 5 children. Mary Beams (daughter of Gideon Beams) previously had a daughter named Katie by Ben Broadnax a white man.

Siah died in 1897 and was buried Barnett cemetery in southwest Okmulgee county, Oklahoma.   [More info

Descendants of Siah Barnett and "Thlesothle":

Son Jackson Barnett was born in the early 1850s. He received a land allotment in Creek county, Oklahoma which was later discovered to be sitting on a huge oilfield in 1912. He became wealthy from the oil revenue. He died in May 29, 1934 Los Angeles, CA and was buried Hollywood cem.  [Biography].

Jackson's mother "Thlesothle" was likely born in the early-mid 1830s. There are claims that she is connected to the Conner family but there is no documentation to support this. Testimonial evidence and records support she was a sister of John Leecher or "Leacher" who operated a ferry near Muskogee. Thlesothle died sometime after 1859. She may have been buried in the Choctaw Givens cemetery west of Eufaula.
