Barnabas Arthur

As of 10/22/98 am certain that this is the father of Mathew Arthur, Sr. and thus the grandfather of William Arthur. Due to the probate record in both the Wilkes Co., Georgia and Campbell Co., Virginia Deed Books listing the legatees for the deeds held by Barnabas Arthur, deceased. The children credited to him are those listed in these proceedings. Since his family was in Wilkes Co., Georgia at the same time frame as Mathew and family, it would seem certain that William would have probably known Barnabas and definitely his grandmother, Martha.
A Revolutionary War Soldier, listed in the Daughters of the American Revolution #306208. Served in the Virginia Militia.

An instrument dated 4 November 1799 written before the clerk of court of Wilkes Co., Georgia, Barnabas's widow, Martha, and all of his children except William relinquished all their rights of inheritance for Barnabas's estate to William Arthur, his son.
