Soldier erected by the Anna Asbury Stone Chapter, DAR, Cambridge, Ohio. Hannah Barnes was the dau. of Henry Slack, a soldier from Maryland. Her claim for bounty lands is listed in the file for Henry Slack - B.L. Wt. 1048-100 in the National Archives in Washington, D.C. The following material is from that file: Discharge: Agreeable to a resolution of Congress bearing the date the 26 day of May, 1783, the bearer, Henry Slack of Md. Artillery, has leave of absence until called by proper authority to join his corps or is finally discharged. Given at Annapolis. (He enlisted Nov. 14, 1777 and was discharged 7-10-1783. He was a Sgt. in Capt. Wm. Brown's company of Md. Artillery. His war record is contained in Maryland Records, Vol.18, pages 575, 580, 582, and 583.) Henry Slack died about 1797. In the application, Hannah Barnes says that she is the only living child of Henry Slack and on 7-16-1822 warrant #1048 for 100 acres of B/L was issued to Hannah Barnes. The file shows that in 1817 Hannah and Leaven Barnes were living in Fayette Co. Pa. and by 1822 they were residents of Belmont Co. Ohio. On June 15, 1822, Thomas Barnes, aged 73, made an affidavit swearing the he knew Hannah Barnes, and that she was formerly Hannah Slack, and that Henry Slack did perform military service.
