2nd Great Grandfather Moshe Mordecai BARNETT found in Kutno, Lodz, Poland #poland

Dear Geners, 
 
My DNA result shows my 2nd ggrandfather Moshe Mordecai BARNETT, lived in Kutno, Lodz.  The only information other than that wonderful finding is that His daughter Miriam, my ggreatgrandmother was born maybe there in 1842.  She married Israel (Joseph) COHEN, from Lomza, Poland.   The first source I have for them both is the 1881 Census for England & Wales, Living in Liverpool, England.   Does any of this information 'ring a bell with anyone'.   Does anyone have any BARNETT ancestors from Kutno or surrounding area?
 
Thank you,
Yvonne Tamtom

A complete set of the Book of Residence for Kutno, Poland exists.  This lists all of the Jewish households from the early 19th century through 1931.  I don't know if it is incorporated into JRI-Poland or another site yet.  Many years ago we used a private researcher to extract some information from the BOR but I don't believe any of the Kutno group members were looking for the name BARNETT. I did just look at an index of ALL family names and did not see any BARNETT or anything similar.

Hello,
I don't know if this will help but Tzvi Dov WINOGRAD halevi BARNETT married to Ida (???). These names appeared on the death certificate as the parents of my paternal grandmother Yetta Winograd PINKUS who died in 1931.  Place of birth for all was written as Russia.
Happy Passover,
Joan

My Lindeman/Linderman and Fux families lived in Kutno (which I visited in 2018)  in the late 1700s/first half of 19th century and I found them in the Books of Residents.  Can't remember if they are on JewishGen or JRI-Poland databases, but they are available via a Polish website:


Think there is an index.

The issue you may have is that Barnett is unlikely to have been the original family name.  Have you traced back through censuses, naturalisation records etc to see if there's any trace of a previous surname?

Good luck!

My great grandfather was Joseph Isaac BARNETT. He was born about 1832 in Golub, Prussia.  A tree my cousin made cited his original surname as Opchitsy. I am sure my cousin wrote it as he heard it. I am told it would have more likely been spelled OSIECKI. 

The family story is that he studied at Oxford and met his wife in England. I can’t substantiate either of those facts. 

I do know that he and his wife sailed together from Liverpool in 1858, landing in New Orleans and settling there. 

His wife was Hannah Pauline GOLDSTEIN. My cousin cites her original surname as KUSHNEVICH. The family story is that her family was persecuted and she went to live with her aunt in England. I have no idea of her aunt’s name or of where in England she lived.  The census indicates that Hannah was born in Russian Poland. 

I also know that Joseph Isaac BARNETT had three sisters—Rebecca, Esther and Mena. I know about Rebecca and Mena’s family. I only know that Esther had two daughters, one of whom was Sarah.

My great maternal grandfather was BERYL MOSES BARNETT (1834-1913) was from Russia PER HIS DEATH certificate. He and his family lived in Middlesbrough, England per 1871 and 1881 England and Wales censuses
 His brother LEVI CRUTCH lived in Wales after both families left Russia. Not sure which is the correct last name. The brothers left the I families behind in the UK when they came to New York and eventually to Cleveland, Ohio with their families following around 1882.  They also had a sister (no name known) who settled in South Africa and was married to a Samuel Albert.
Any of this sound familiar?

Hi Ellen,

In the Jan. 9, 1918 edition of "The Jewelers Circular Weekly" there is an obit for Joseph Isaac BARNETT.  You can see it at GoogleBooks.  Here is a link, hope it works:

https://books.google.com/books?id=jmMcAQAAMAAJ&pg=RA7-PA87&dq=%22joseph+isaac+barnett%22&hl=en&newbks=1&newbks_redir=0&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiXpJL_5OPoAhU5gnIEHYWCBv4Q6wEwAHoECAEQAQ#v=onepage&q=%22joseph%20isaac%20barnett%22&f=false

It mentions that Joseph passed on New Year's Eve, his son is B. BARNETT, and that Joseph was 85 years and 4 months of age, and resided at 3726 Danneel St.

If he left a will, it may provide more information about other family members.
