My Feline Child

Leslie Catherine Taylor,

my furry feline child,

will be my child forever,

half-wild, all-cat, half-mild.

+++++

She has joined the pantheon

of great cats I have known–

Jean-Luc, Harry, Charlemagne,

Caesar, and Duncan; done

+++++

are their lives on Earth yet they

remain my furry kinfolk;

those feline monarchs do reign

in my heart; death can’t revoke

+++++

their status as cat children

in my mind.  This tuxedo cat,

with her determination

to leave feral ways at

+++++

the altar of the past, has

chosen the better part.

And the black on her nose, paws’

pads, and her fur is art-

+++++

ful.  Her nose is pink and black,

her fur coat distinguished,

her manner no sweetness lacks;

she’s all I could have wished.

John R. “Jack” Barrett, Sr., was a son of John Barrett (born circa 1776) and his second wife, one Ms. Stanton.

I descend from John Barrett and his first wife, Milly Rebecca Chastain Barrett through their son, Elisha Chastain Barrett (1806-1886).

My best guess is that the John Barrett who was the father of Ed Barrett, great-grandson of one of the Reuben Barretts and grandson of John Barrett (born circa 1766), was a son of William M. Barrett, Sr., one of John Barrett’s children via his second wife, Ms. Stanton.

UPDATE

Courtesy of cousin James Parino Barrett, of Texas, I offer this information:

“Perino Barrett” was actually Isaac Parino Barrett, born July 15, 1865.  Isaac Barrett, his older brother, died July 23, 1862.  Isaac Parino Barrett moved to Mason County, Texas, and died in Fort Worth.  According to findagrave.com, he died on February 4, 1936.
