I read article on “Deaf John” and notice that it starts with DAR patriot. Is this true? I could not find neither John Barnes or John Barns or his wife Ruth Elizabeth Fischer or Ruth Elizabeth Fisher in the DAR library. Does anyone have a DAR ancestor number for him? Is there any info on his children? He was my 5th great-grandfather.
I am searching for another set of Barnes that was born in 1780 Edgecombe, N.C.( William)…died in 1819 in Warren Co. To…he married Charity Phillips, they had 8 children..
Some of this Barnes family then moved to Independence Co Ar….this linage is my great grandparent….Charles Bell married Eva Barnes Feb.1879….I am looking for a photo of Eva Barnes Bell.
I have not seen any info on John being a soldier; only that he picked up a gun to keep the British off his land; their are DAR ancestor numbers for:
Brinsley Barnes (1713-1794) Ancestor #A006290
Solomon Barnes (1852-1807) Ancestor #A209285
Thomas Barnes (1750-1823) Ancestor #A006407
