Moultrie Creek Sunset

Moultrie Creek is a beautiful tidal creek that meanders around the countryside south of St. Augustine, Florida, before emptying into the Intracoastal Waterway. Over the last 20-plus years, members of the Barrett family have moved to this area to enjoy its beauty and its peaceful settings. The creek also provides the inspiration for much of the content here.

Denise OlsonI’m a native Floridian with family ties from Texas to Virginia. When I enlisted in the Air Force I got my first taste of computer technology. That began my career in information systems management and support which now spans more than 40 years. Now retired, I am focused on family history and digital research. My personal blog, Moultrie Creek, includes stories on both family and local history. Here at the Gazette, the focus is on research technology, personal archives and digital storytelling.

    Just found your site and have spent the last hour completely interested in your Graveyard Rabbit pictures and info. I have been to most of the cemeteries, and especially love the Mission. Have often craved more info about so many of the graves.
    Thanks so much for sharing!

    It is nice to meet another Barrett. I agree that we are probably not in the same line since it seems your Barretts are from the south and my understanding is that a lot of the southern Barretts came through the Reuben Barrett line. Oh sure, I know that they all didn’t but it’s a good starting point. Anyway, my Barrett line is through Thomas or one of his brothers (deduced through DNA testing) who came to America from Essex England in the 1600s. I’ve written a book about my family history … Barretts and all the lines that are intertwined. I have decided to post excerpts from it in my blog. You are welcome to read along.

    Have a great day!
