Descendants of Francis Barnes

Generation No. 1

1. FRANCIS1 BARNES was born 1738 in Belfast, Ireland, and died 1821 in Gallatin Co., Ky (now called Trimble Co., KY/buried in the Corn Creek area?. He married (2) JANE MCGANNON Abt. 1780.

Notes for F
Francis emigrated from Belfast, Ireland to Culpeper Co., Virginia.
Note: Francis may have had a brother Leonard. Leonard's will dated 1805 list children: Henry, Rawleigh, Clara, Judith, Polly, Catherine & Tomson.

Source of this information came from Charles Franklin Barnes in Hanover, Jefferson County Indiana. He cites his source as follows: "information on Francis Sr. came from two sources. One was my Aunt Sadie's notes about old John Barnes (Sarah Law) records that referred to him as coming from Culpeper Co., Virginia. I think the birth and death dates came from Robert Barnes of Salida, Colorado or from Zella Detweiler of Colorado Springs, (now deceased)."
In an email that followed this, he stated that the birth and death dates are as follows: birth dates is a calculation from other documents, so is just a guess. Year of death was taken from date that his will was probated.
(This source is filed under Charles Barnes' name)
Note from Charles Franklin Barnes: There was a Reuben Barnes b. 1770 m. Nancy ? living in Trigg Co., KY in the 1820 and 1850 Census. Could this be another child of Francis?? This needs more research.
Will of Francis Barnes dated 14 Feb 1815. Copy given by Charles Franklin Barnes who received a transcribed copy from Zella Detweiler (now deceased).
