Peter Spracklin’s Estate: Partition Deed headed by Samuel Lawrence et. al. on November 26, 1847

The following estate partition deed for the lands of Peter Spracklin of Hardin Co., is very curious.  The individuals who are involved are S. Lawrence, E. Lawrence, James and Mary Barnard, George and Elizabeth Barnard, and Sara Ann Barnard.  They are all living in Philadelphia at this time.

We know who S. and E. Lawrence are. They are Samuel and Elizabeth Lawrence. Elizabeth is Elizabeth Spracklin a daughter of Peter and Betty Spracklin.

Who are these Barnards?  Are they descendants of Samuel and Elizabeth Spracklin Lawrence. This doesn’t make sense. Samuel and Elizabeth are still living so this has to be another of Peter and Betty’s children and their descendants.  Are they descendants of Mary or Sarah? I have in my notes that Sarah married a Banning and lived in New Jersey, maybe the name was Barnard. Mary married someone named Matthews.  I have been trying to figure this out via online sources but so far the pickings are slim.

If you know who these individuals are please leave a comment.
