Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (B)
Barnet, James

One of the best known printers in Chicago in the 1870's. He and his brother, Alexander, were typical, loyal Scots and were among those who organized the Scotch Presbyterian Church. James was a book publisher and writer and many pamphlets and books were issued before the Chicago Fire of 1871. Nearly all these have disappeared. One, however survives (Thomas C. MacMillan's personal library) called "The Martyrs and Heroes of Illinois", published in 1865.
