Looking for Joel Barnett

I am trying to find my husbands ancestor, Joel Barnett. He was born in Wyoming County, New York, in abt 1810 - 1820. He married Adelle Clarissa McKay. Their first son was Joel Dwight Barnett. The family moved to Wisconsin, maybe before 1850. Joel Dwight Barnett served in the Civil War, married Mary Cox, fathered abt 8 children and eventually moved to Santa Rosa, CA in the 1880's. Joel Barnett, his father, remained in River Falls, and was still alive at the time of his son's death in abt 1897. I have been unable to find a record of Joel Barnett's death. I am hoping to obtain information about his parents from an obituary, a will, or perhaps a death certificate.

A search through 1907 obituaries statewide turned up nothing.
