Hello JBarron,



Could you please send me your web site address? I have not been doing research for the last four months and now with the semester break here, cannot find your site. I will save it as a favorite this time! It is delightful to receive "Barron Circle" email, even though I have had to be out of the research loop for a while. (took 15 units this semester and needed all my spare time for homework)



My husband, Byron M. Reid, is the son of Theron Poole Reid, and the grandson of Serena Barron, daughter of THBarron.



Thanks, Marian Reid

Joe, I have a PAF file of some 4-5 thousand Barrons and spouses which I will check for anyone. I have not added much to it in the past year or so, however.

Posted by Robert Barron on Barron GenForum January 02, 1999 at 17:56:02:



I am looking for a connection to three Barron members in Prince William Co., Va.,two I know came from Charles Co.,MD. Dr. Hendley Barron, a wealthy planter married Margery Cox in 1785, both from Charles Co., MD. By 1787 he was a merchant in Prince William Co., Va.



Jessee Barron, another wealthy planter brought slaves across the Potomac River from Charles Co., MD to Prince William Co., Va. in 1787.



Finally, A John Barron also listed in the same neighborhood as Jessee and Dr. Hendley was first mentioned in 1795 Prince William Co., Va. records for cutting down his neighbors trees.



Have not been successful with research in southern Maryland. Can anyone make any suggestions or know about their connections?

>>>>>>>>>>>





This is my follow-up to Robert



I don't have the sources in front of me right now, but Dr. Hendley and Jesse Barron are known to be sons of Thomas Barron of Charles Co., MD, who came to Prince Wm Co., Va. I have long suspected that they were also brothers of John Barron, father of Texas pioneer Thomas Hudson Barron, who moved from MD to Kentucky about 1799. John was in Harden Co. by 1820 and he married Susan Mattingly, widow of Joseph Dixon. John and Susan had 2 sons and a daughter. I had not seen evidence that a John was associated with the brothers, but you may have found a gem of a missing piece of the puzzle.

Robert, I moderate an on-line group of Barron researchers known as the Barron Circle and invite you to join our group. Your message on the GenForum should start a flurry of activity as many in the group are descendants of John Barron and Susan Mattingly of KY and VA/MD before. We store much of our research on my web page which can be accessed as follows: John Barron's Home Page



Let me hear from you.

Subject: [MSCHOCTA-L] WHITTEN / BARRON



James S. "Jim" WHITTEN (b. 1846) married Sarah E. "Sallie" BARRON (b. 1851) in 1867 in Winston County. They are on the 1880 Choctaw census in Beat 3 French Camp Village with these children: Lula (Larla?) (b. 1868), Cora (b. 1872), Dick (b. 1874), and Ada (b. 1876). Both Jim's and Sallie's families lived in Winston County, but they apparently moved to French Camp, at least for a while. Does anyone know anything about this family? Thanks.

What a wonderful surprise. Of course my line of Barron's never left the Old Dominion. But I do have information of the ones that left Virginia and the ones that stayed.



My gt, gt, grandfather was Jessee Barron. Born in Prince William County, VA (ca 1803) and died in Culpeper Co, VA. on March 28, 1860. His sons fought with Pickett. His death notice in the Richmond Archives states that his parents were John and Chlole Barron, my gt, gt, gt, grandfather. That is where the mess starts. I have a boat load of information about them but nothing connects because he also had a son name John.



In my arena there were three majors: Dr. Hendley Barron, Jessee Barron and John Barron - all from Charles County, MD.



DR. HENDLEY BARRON - Will probated July 1, 1822, PR. WM. CO, VA., married Margery Cox, died 1847.

A. William H. Barron married Sussanah Mason of Charles Co., Maryland. She was the granddaughter of George Mason of Guston Hall Plantation, Va. and The Founder of the US Bill of Rights and friend and neighbor of George Washington. They moved to Kentucky.

B. Charles Barron was a merchant and moved West

C. Henry A. Barron married Rebecca L. Latimore in DC on Feb. 23, 1823. His father founded, Barron Va. and he took over as PostMaster in 1822.

D. Gustavas Thomas Barron, born August 21, 1808, Pr. Wm. Co., Va. Died July 4, 1850, Ft. Laramie Wyoming. Married Ruth Fane Earnest of Greene County, KY c. 1832. He was a trader.

1. Charles Henry b. May 30, 1835.....

Plus his 13 children - I have info on them if anyone is interested.

2. Kittie, born Aug. 15, 1844, Knoxville, TN. Married B. FF. Satterfield.

3. William S. born Oct. 24, 1844, Grove Co., TN. Married Octavia Mason.



E. Maria Barron married - Benjamin Wofford, of Spartanburg, SC. Sept. 6, 1836. He was the founder of Wofford College. She died in Hudson, WI on Jan. 13, 1883. Burried in Greenville, TN.

F. Anne Barron married Felix Wells,a preacher in Greenville TN

G. Kittie Barron married Gassomay in DC.

H. Charlotte Barron married ......Latimer of DC.

I. Cecelia Barron married George Washington, nephew of George Washington.

J. Emily Barron married Samuel Hanson of Charles County Maryland on July 25. 1837.



Dr. Hendley was a weathly planter in Virginia. Also in the records is a Jessee Barron - Brother? Cousin?



Jessee Barron died in Prince William Co., Va. in 1811. He was listed in the 1787 Va. Census, Brought slaves from Charles Co., Md. in 1791 and in 1810 was listed as having 9 slaves. He was married to Eleanor. They had four children: Fanny, Samuel, Thomas and Margaret, aka Peggy who married John Barron ( my gt, gt, gt, grandfather) and I believe according to the tax and land records - most were burned during war definitely shows two barrons. Margaret inherited her father's (Jessee ) land and plantation from his will. Margaret and John Barron lived near Barron, Virginia for decades according to records. Who were these three people, Hendley, John and Jessee from Charles Co., VA.



I hope this is enough for starters. Thanks-a-million.

Can't say for sure, Joe, but I know I have the families of their children. I also have some of the descendants of those that went to Perry Co., AL, and later to Texas. I suppose my records are relatively complete for Archibald's descendants through about 1850. Would appreciate filing in the holes in the family.

Bob, thank you a bunch for the data on the Prince Wm. Co. Barrons. I have routed it to the Barron Circle. I also added you to our mailing list and hope we can make some connections.



There was a Charles Barron in Pike/Montgomery Co., AL 1836-1860 who was born in Maryland about 1810 (I think). He was granted land at the same time and place as a Alexander Barron. Charles named a son Hendley Barron. Does this start to sound familiar? I had thought this Charles might be the son of Jesse, but it might be the Charles son of Dr. Hendley? Any thoughts.

I'm looking for further information about John W. Barron, b. 1824 AL. His parents were born in SC. Perhaps someone else in the Barron circle has a connection.



1845, John W. lived in Tipper Co., MS.



1850, lived in Washington, Hempstead Co., AR with wife Julia A., age 25, pob TN, and children James Wiley (5), and Emily (3), pob MS



Other children of this union: John, William N., and daughters Crish, Lou, & Helen.



(Wife Julia A. died, date/place unknown.)



1860, moved to Texas. (Son, James Wiley Barron, served with Terrell's Texas Cavalry during Civil War.)



1866, Hopkins Co.,TX, John W. married Mary Ann Dodson.



1867, Son, Benjamin F. Barron, born.



1871 moved to Potter, Polk Co., AR, Son Richard born.



John W. soon sold Potter claim to son John who lived there until his death.



John W. moved to Egger, AR (now Cherry Hill, AR) where he lived until his death. 1890 buried Opal, AR.



Family legend says John W. is brother to Samuel Boulds Barron whose son Samuel Benton Barron wrote The Lone Star Defenders-Civil War Recollections, A Chronicle of the Third Texas Cavalry Regiment. I have no verification of this.

John, Thanks so much for thinking of me with the work you are doing on the BARRON line. You are right I have not gotten any further with my research. I have really enjoyed what you have online. I spent about three hours yesterday with it. After seeing all the Barrons in Georgia I have had a lots of thoughts on my Charles and his wife. Census records say Catherine, his wife, was born in Georgia. After seeing the name Hendly in your letter makes me think you may be right about Charles being from one of the brothers. Thanks again Am looking forward to the things I find with the group even if I don`t have much to add.

I misunderstood the information that Bruce Elam told me. Come to find out her name wasn't Olive Barron, it was Calista Olive Reid. She was my grandfather's sister. And both of them are Serena Barron's children. I only knew one of the other children and we called her Aunt Josie. So it is extra special to find a relative that is related so closely. Will talk to you later. Joni

Bruce, what info that I would have on her would go backward in time from her to her father, grandfather, etc. Your best bet is to contact Theron Palmer of Salado, TX, concerning hers and other descendants of Thomas Hudson Barron. We are presently making some progress toward establishing that THB's father was the John Barron living in Prince William Co., VA, in the 1790s and originally from Charles Co., MD.

Hi Daddy,



Here's some work I did (along with some of yours!) on the web for BARRONs and MARTINs. I believe the CARROLLs of Tryon Co. may be a related family to either of ours. Recall Samuel Carroll MARTIN who was William BARRON's brother-in-law. The CARROLLs were in some deeds with others of ours in Tryon Co. Other Lincoln/Tryon Co. names of note were the STEPHENSONs (one was a governor). William had a brother-in-law Andrew STEPHENSON. Have you tried to look at his family on the census yet?



Have you been working on these MARTINs any? I wondered if you had made any headway on who the parents of Lavinia were or had found any more on Elizabeth (MARTIN) BARRON's family.



In a message dated 22 Sept. 1998, you said that Lavinia (MARTIN) BARRON's brother was a Lt. in the same Texas State Troops company from Johnson Co. in 1864 as Cowan McCLUNG. When I asked you some months later what his name was, you said you didn't say that (I'm looking at the printout so I know you did! :D ) Any chance you might remember now who that was now?



Before 1773 Tryon included a lot of SC. I have some BARRON tidbits from York Co., SC wills (was Tryon). A Catherine BERRY names a daughter Catherine BARRON in 1784 and Violet SIMRIL. Sons: Hugh, John, Andrew, William, Roger and Richard (WATSONs are witnesses).



In 1822 a Thomas BARRON (wife Elizabeth) names brother William, Samuel (rel. not clear) and Samuel's sisters. A David WATSON and John BARRY, son of Roger are among the execs. Could this be Thomas who married Elizabeth MARTIN? If so, these wouldn't be our ancestors, I don't think.



In 1839 (probated 1841) I have a John BARRON Sr., wife Jane. Sons Thomas Y. and John. Daughter Jane BARRY's 3 youngest children: Archibald, Andrew, Jane. Dau Eliz. PARHAM, wife of James. Grandson Wm. T., son of Wm., decd., son Archibald, dau. Nancy WALLACE, wife of Jas. Y., dau. Violet BAXTER, wife of Andrew. (have to reread it to get the rest).



If you do not have this info. let me know and I can copy it (have on film).

I don't think I have this paper on Scott WARD. I remember I read it, but don't think I ever got the copy. Could you email it to me? Or post it on your website? I'd like to have it.



Was John J. "Baldy" MARTIN the son of John and Lavinia MARTIN (parents of Britain's wife). There are a lot of census listings for Lawrence Co., AL on the web that I've been looking at.



I found 2 marriages for a Britain B. BARRON there and think this is Thomas' brother and William and younger Britain's uncle. Wonder where this name came from?

Dear John,



I have been reading all of the interesting postings in GenForum. Several years ago I talked with a cousin who had done a lot of research on our BARRON family line. At the time I didn't know enough to ask where she had found her proof. I would love to see where I fit into your familyline. Do you have any information or pictures you can share? It's very in interesting to me to see the similarities of all the BARRON'S that I know.

Here is what I do know about my BARRON family. (Or at least the part I personally have proof of.)

My father James Howell BARRON b. 20 Mar 1940 Cobb Co.,GA

m. Retha KINSEY b. 20 Sep 1943



gfather Lenward Howell BARRON b.11 June 1917 d. 30 Jan 1990 b. Cobb Co.,GA

m. Annie Louise CHALKER b.17 Oct 1921 d. 3 June 1997 Cobb Co.,GA



ggfather Henry Howell BARRON b.6 May 1866 Milton (Fulton) Co.,GA

m. Adger Lola GROOVER b.7 Jan. 1876 d. 22 Feb 1957 (Henry Howell married Octavia Bellzorra 1st)



gggfather James Monroe BARRON b.15 Dec 1828 Butts Co.,GA d. 18 Dec 1883 Milton Co.,GA

m.Rebecca Francis Stark b.25 April 1840 d. 14 Sept 1901 Milton Co.,GA





**** beyond this point I only have someone else's research to go by. If you can be of any help I would greatly appreciate it!!!

According to my cousin's research James Monroe's father was Henry Barron and his mother was Elizabeth Strickland they had 12 children after Elizabeth's death Henry re-married Penelope Edison and had at least one other child.

Henry's father was William JR. the son of the infamous William Barron SR. who was, according to some sources beheaded during the Revolutionary War.



Of course I would love to know if any or all of this is fact and not fiction. Can you assist me in this? Do you know of any places in GA. I can go to do more research? Are there any members of our BARRON family I can get in touch with? Do you need any information on my branch of the family? I can get you in touch with several cousins who have done research. Or I can send more of my information. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Hello Mr. Martin,



I've been reading about the MARTINs you are researching on your webpage at: http://www.angelfire.com/tx/lineage/index.html . I too am interested in these MARTINs.



I'm trying to find out some information about some of the MARTIN families who were in the Tryon/Lincoln Co. areas in the late 1700s. They left NC/SC and went via GA or TN or both to AL then MS then TX. They connect several times to my BARRON families. Known collateral lines are: STEPHENSON. Possible collateral lines are: COLLINS (this name is on your webpage), PRICE and CARROLL.



My Thomas BARRON m. 12 Feb 1796 Lincoln Co., NC to Elizabeth MARTIN, daughter of Robert MARTIN. This BARRON family removed to Lawrence Co., AL by 1830 and Sumter Co., AL by 1840.



In 17 Sep 1834 Lawrence Co., AL, Thomas' son (and my ancestor) William BARRON married a Lavinia MARTIN, daughter of a Thomas MARTIN. Her brother John J. "Baldy" MARTIN was a Lt. in the Texas State Troops of Johnson Co., TX in 1864 (set up to fight yankees and more importantly marauding Comanches at the time).



In 14 Apr 1838 Sumter Co., AL, Sarah Ann BARRON, daughter of Thomas above, married Samuel Carroll MARTIN (6 Jan 1816 TN-8 Oct 1878 Cherokee Co., TX), son of Dan (Abe) MARTIN and Elizabeth. Sarah died and Samuel married second (some 10 years later in Tishimingo Co., MS, I believe) to Mary "Polly" BARRON, thought to be another daughter of Thomas BARRON.



About 1848 possibly in Tishomingo Co., MS, Thomas BARRON's youngest son Britton B. BARRON married Mary J. MARTIN, dau of John MARTIN & Levenia ?



Would you know anything about any of these MARTINs? They would seem to connect to the family of William MARTIN, but I cannot figure out how.

John, my great uncle George Absalom Barron b. bef 1878 was a minister of the ME church. He married my parents John Pernon Doss and Margaret Elizabeth Peek in Cass County, TX. Linden on July 1, 1933. He is further the person listed on the pension file of Sarah Jane Cates Doss who m. William Newton Doss. Lists himself as the son-in-law of Sarah Jane Doss. He was Married to Martha Ann Doss and they had only one child Ernie Auline Doss, after whom my father is named (Aulin Pernon Doss). I am not a genealogist by any stretch of the imagination, but I do belong to the Doss Family Connection. The Barron family has been associated with the Doss family back to the 1700's in VA and perhaps before. Do you have anything in your database that might lead me to G. A. Barron's parentage? Based on family lore I believe that G.A. Barron was born in Cass County, TX. Any help you might give me with the connection of the Dosses to the Barron family would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have any more details such as dates and locations where the above Joseph Barron lived. If so what is your source of information. I've studied the line of Barrons in which the name Barnabas is prevalent a good bit and all of them seemed to be from Edgecombe Co., NC 1750-1800 and before that from VA (perhaps as you say York Co.). The York Co., SC, line is totally different from them. I think you will find that there are not just two but as many as a dozen separate and distinct lines of Barrons in the south.

Yes, I do think this is the way to look to. If for no other reason than that McClung and Martin were in the same troop together. Over and over and over again, I have learned the hard way that people married their neighbors and that males usually didn't look further than a 5 mile circumference (unless it was too rural for that) for a wife.



One tantalizing thought occurred to me over the weekend. John W. Barron's cattle brand. Do you have access to the records of cattle brands for Cherokee and Johnson County. By comparing the brands of the MARTINs and their known BARRON kin, we may find enough similarity with J.W. Barron's cattle brand to settle us on the question. In the mean time, more and more digging.



Good luck on the newspapers. Hopefully they will report his engagement, marriage or death.

I need to clarify my last message--I did not mean to imply there are no Barrons in Waterford (I have not researched Irish records).



Frequently the term "Waterford Barrons" is used in reference to the line of Capt. William Barron (m. Prudence Davis)--the reason being that an 1890s letter from a descendant of this couple relates a family tale (which has become quite a legend) that William and Prudence came from County Waterford, Ireland. Supposedly they married and had several children there prior to moving directly to GA just in time for William's heroic service in the Rev. War--service for which he was allegedly beheaded by Indians in Richmond Co., GA (Augusta).



What I was attempting to convey was that this particular family legend does not appear to be true--there is no evidence that indicates William and Prudence Barron were natives of Ireland. Instead, records indicate they were both residents of Craven Co., NC and likely descended from a MD/VA/NC line of Barrons.

Joe--I just now saw your post to the Barron Circle. I am a descendant from the "Waterford" Barron line. Guess what--we're not from Waterford after all. The background of the allegedly beheaded Capt. William Barron (and his Waterford origins) has proven to be quite mythical. William Barron and wife Prudence Davis resided in Craven Co., NC prior to the move of Prudence to GA (I have yet to find evidence that William ever resided in GA; however, we do have a Davis father and brother for Prudence and a likely Barron father for William--all in Craven records).



I do suspect that William Barron saw Rev. War service (still working on proving this, however) and may have even been killed in action, but to date I have not been able to place him in GA.



Incidentally, a great-grandson who was a prominent physician in Jones Co., GA stated in a published biographical sketch that his Barron line came from MD to VA to NC and then to GA. This man, a proven descendant of William and Prudence Barron, did not mention in his sketch anything about a beheading--or Ireland.



Prudence Davis Barron received a federal bounty land grant in GA in 1785 (by the way, in GA, bounty land is not necessarily for military service), and she is listed on both the grant and the tax records as "Prudence Barron." In early Wilkes Co. records she is occasionally referred to as "widow." By the way, she resided in GA solely in Wilkes Co.--not Warren Co. as the legend states. Although Warren was formed from Wilkes, Prudence resided in the area of Wilkes that remained in that county as its boundaries appear today.`



Incidentally, there is a new book on Rev. War state bounty land grants out by Lloyd Bockstruck - who is director of the genealogy dept. at the Dallas Public Library and genealogist extraordinare (in addition to authoring several books in the genealogy area, he is a frequent lecturer at the National Genealogical Society conferences). I had an opportunity to visit with Mr. Bockstruck when I was at the Dallas Library recently (my annual pilgrimage). We were discussing his latest publication (the book mentioned above), when I mentioned I was interested in a listing for William Barron which appeared in his book. (Keep in mind state land grants were different from federal land grants.) Mr. Bockstruck advised me to order copies of the entire contents of William Barron's file, which is housed at the GA State Archives (or better yet, have someone in GA order it for me for a fraction of the cost). We think it possible that William Barron applied for a grant (or else his wife applied on his service), and then died before the grant took place--or else died shortly thereafter. Georgia was one of the very few states who offered out-of-state Rev. War veterans bounty land.



As for South Carolina, based on some of the prior residences of neighbors and in-laws of Prudence Barron and her sons, I have been wondering if perhaps Prudence may have lived in SC briefly prior to coming to Wilkes Co. In particular, the Garrards (two Garrard siblings married two of William and Prudence's children) appear to have previously resided in Union Dist, SC. The Garrards appear to have originated in VA.



As for religion, I have not found a church membership for Prudence, but her sons and at least one dau. appear to have been dyed-in-the-wool Baptists. If there wasn't a Baptist church established in the new areas where they moved, these Barron descendants would charter one.



There is another William Barron who was a Rev. War soldier who resided in Burke Co., GA--which was just across the Savannah River from SC.



Another SC reference--while researching another family in Perry Co., AL, I came across some other Barron information where these particular Barrons stated they were some of the earliest settlers in Perry Co. and that they were natives of SC. I will be sending this to John to be posted to the circle.



One last thing--a previous message to the list mentioned a Reaves. For what it's worth, Smith Barron (grandson of William and Prudence) was married to a Reeves woman prior to his marriage to Mrs. Sarah Graham (Hays) Barron, the widow of his brother Joseph Barron.

Did some research years ago and am satisfied almost to a moral certainty that the SC branch of the BARRON family descending from immigrants ALEXANDER (CA. 1742-1817) and ELIZABETH (INGRAM) BARRON are NOT of the Waterford line. The Waterford line is (or was) staunchly Roman Catholic at a time when religious affiliation was far more important than now, while the SC ALEXANDER line is so Presbyterian that many, if not most, of them were for many generations were A.R.P.'s. For those of you NOT from SC, that's a very small, almost entirely SC, denomination named the Associate Reformed Presbyterians, founded about 1810 (I think) of which some of the SC Barrons and their in-laws were among the founder. We "regular" Presbyterians were too "theologically liberal" for the A.R.P.'s. In recent times, some of the congregations (almost all in the South) that withdrew from the Presbyterian Church in the USA when the "Southern" and "Northern" churches reunited in 1983 affiliated with the A.R.P.'s.

Subj: Thomas Hudson Barron Marker

Date: 2/1/99



I have uploaded the following to my web page which can be accessed as follows: John Barron's Home Page





===============================

A Historical Marker will be erected at the grave of Thomas Hudson Barron in the Texas Ranger Museum Cemetery at Waco, Texas, on March 2, 1999. The ceremony will take place 4-6 p.m. and will include some comments by descendants and others. The errors on his plaque in the Ranger Museum will be corrected and additional information added.



Thomas Hudson Barron was a very early Texas pioneer. After his service in the War of 1812 he joined a group of hunters and trappers who explored the area now forming the border of Texas and Oklahoma. By 1820 he was a settler in old Miller Co., Arkansas Territory, which would now include Bowie and Red River Counties, Texas. In the early 1830s he was living in Stephen F. Austin's Colony in Washington Co., now Texas, and received several land grants.



He took an active part in the Texas revolution of 1835-1836 and was captain of a company. His company took part in the action which lead to the Battle of San Jacinto, although Barron himself had been detailed to help remove the families of the settlers from his area to safety in advance of the Mexican Army. This action has been referred to as the "Runaway Scrape."



Barron was best known for his participation as a Texas Ranger captain in the 1840s which helped to tame the central Texas country around what later became McLennan County where he settled. He also served his community in various capacities by holding public offices. A biographical write-up on him by descendant Theron Palmar appears in the new Handbook of Texas.

Hello John, I am sorry to have been so long answering you about an e-mail message dated 1/9/99 that you sent to Carolyn. She was looking for information about Andrew J. Barron b. GA about 1820 that was in the 1850 AL. census. Listed with him was wife Sarah, and children James, Balsara, Harriet, Henry and Mary. She believed this family might have migrated to Plano, TX. The Andrew J. Barron, that descended from Capt. William Barron and Prudence Davis, is my line. In the 1850 Al. census he was listed as A. J. Barron in Barbour Co., Al., and in the 1860 Al. census in Macon Co. My Andrew J. Barron was born in 1814 in Ga. You sent Carolyn information on my line. have not been able to determine what Barron line Carolyn's Andrew J. Barron is descended from. I have proved my line back to Capt. William Barron for the DAR, and I would be happy to share any information you would like. I have been helped by many people in proving my line. Genealogists are very generous. I really enjoy the Barron Circle. I had back surgery six months ago, and have not been contributing very much, but I keep all of the information you send my way.

I'd be interested to know more about this Robert but I don't think he was related to my Lincoln/Rutherford/Cleveland Martins. Mine came around 1781 to Lincoln. It wouldn't surprise me though, if your Robert was a long lost brother of my Thomas and William Jr. What else do you know of him and anything else do you know about siblings of Elizabeth?

That would make this Thomas born in the late 1700s. Was he a son of the above Robert and sibling of Elizabeth?

It is interesting because all of my Martins ended up around Chickasaw and Calhoun Co. MS in the 1840s. Before that they were in Greene Co. AL. Is that near Lawrence?

I came across this in the paper today. It may be of interest to some of you.



March 11, 1847

Norfolk Herald



Departed this life, at 7 o'clock, yesterday morning, Miss ANN MORTIMER BARRON, daughter of captain WM. BARRON of the Continental Navy of he U. States.



Captain BARRON was a Virginian by birth; born on Old Point Comfort, now Fortress Monroe. Early in life he settled in Newport, Rhode Island, where he married, and, at his death, left three children; two sons, and a daughter, the latter the subject of this notice.



She came (by invitation of Capt. Robert Barron, her uncle) to virginia, in the year 1796, and has continued o reside here ever since. Her father was killed on board the Boston Frigate, by the bursting of a gun, while in chase of an enemy, on her passage to France, having been especially dispatched to take out the late President Adams, as our Minister to Holland. The present ex-President Adams was, with his father, a passenger at the time, and has a perfect recollection of the circumstance.



Captain Barron was an intimate friend of Captain Tucker, who commanded the Boston; and, at his earnest request accompanied him on this occasion as his first Lieutenant -- although he was at the time awaiting a captain's commission to command the frigate Columbus, then building.



The sons, both of them, died at sea, the elder, Samuel fell overboard from aloft and was drowned, the younger, James, died of the small pox, on his passage from Holland, in command of the ship Ulysses, belonging to this port.



MISS BARRON, was through life, an exemplary and pious lady; well informed, affectionate, agreeable, decorous and courteous in her deportment to her friends, of whom she could justly claim many highly respectable, and deserving of her esteem.



She was many years, and to the time of her death, a faithful instructress of youth, by whom her excellent percepts and example will long be affectionately cherished, as a member of the Baptist Church, for nearly 26 years, her exemplary walk and conversation will be nered {?} by the true disciples of the cross, so long as genuine piety has an advocate in that community of Christians. Her age was about 68 years.



Her funeral will take place from the Baptist Church, on Cumberland street, on Thursday afternoon, at half past 3 o'clock, at which place and hour, her friends and acquaintances are respectfully invited to attend.

Thank you, Diane. I am familiar with this line. James Barron was the son of John Barron and Frances Garrard. This John was the son of William Barron and Prudence Davis.



James was born in Georgia and settled in Union Parish, Louisiana where he died in the 1860s. His descendants and widow mostly came to Texas. Looks like a pretty complete line for his son John, but haven't had a chance to compare it to my list. I am routing your message to the Barron Circle for comment.

Dear Sir,

I was wondering if any one that you knew was of the lineage of John & Sussanah McBee Barron. John b. abt. 1749 is supposed to have been son of a Joseph Barron b. 1723 (from what I've been told). James Barron b. 23 May 1791 along with his father (John) came to Pulaski County early on. I would like to know this line and maybe get a family chart or sheet on them, maybe Joseph or John Barron on down would be nice. My line stops at Menerva Barron who married 20 Jan 1845 in Pulaski County, KY to William Henry Todd s/o Anderson Todd. I not sure who Menerva's parents are though. Thanks a bunch!!

I have a new puzzle for some researchers! I went to Dawsonville, Ga. last week to see what I could dig up. Well, I dug up nothing concrete. The Parks family has nothing on Arie Barnes (Barron?) Parks. It's like she just dropped out of the sky and no-one knows where they were married. It wasn't Lumpkin, Dawson, Rabun or Union Co. I have found no trace of Isaac and Winia before Lumpkin Co., although I know that they lived in SC at one time. Now for the puzzle. One researcher told me that some of the Barron's left Texas in a hurry using the name Murphy. James and Jemima Barron are buried on the Grady Murphy Farm in Ga.



Now for the clencher! I know for a fact that Gabriel Barron (my gggrandfather) married Martha Ann Hyde. His son Joseph (my ggrandfather) married Martha Ann Hyde's niece, Laura Fowler (daughter of Malinda "Lindy" Hyde Fowler) So, my Lumpkin/Dawson family of Barron's started from the Barron's and Hyde's.



When I went to Dawsonville, I copied the entire cemetery listing for Bethel Baptist Church, where 3 generations of my Barron's are buried. There are also Hyde's buried there. Guess who I found buried in the middle of the Hyde's? Ethel H. Murphy died 05-01-1960 Is this a coincidence or is there some stronger connection to the Barron's and Murphy's?



I have people helping me in Dawson Co. and they are trying to get the records from inside the church for me. There are a lot of unmarked graves.



Will send Ga. info as I get it.

From: Memarle



Hi,

It has been a while since I last posted. I hope that some of the new Barron researchers may know something about my Charles Wesley Barron. The story told me by Emmette Leander Barron the son of Charles Wesley goes like this:



Charles Wesley Barron came to Rusk Co. Texas as a teenager with his brothers Wade and Wylie. They never told anyone where they came from or the names of their parents.



In the 1900 Census, Charles W. said he was born in Alabama and that his parents were also born in Alabama. I have not been able to find any information on this family. In the 1880 Rusk Co. Census a Wade Barron said he was born in Louisiana.

Charles Wesley first married Helena Browning in 1884 Rusk Co. TX. They had four children.

Annie Blanch b. 1885 m. George Winn Morton.

John Wesley b. 1888 m. 1st. Jennie Plunkett, 2nd. Bessie Sides

Emmette Leander b. 1889 m. 1st.Clytie Watson, 2nd.Cora Cockran

Dora Belle b. 1892 m. Charlie T. Thornton



Charles Wesley married second Gerturde Washburn in 1905 and they had two sons, Sammie Lee b. 1905, he never married.

Charles Alton b. 1914 m. 1st. Annie Francis Everett, 2nd. Louise Scarbrough.



Any clue you may have as to the parents of Charles Wesley would help. I have reached a dead end. John, JBARRON933, thinks he may belong to the Louisiana Barrons, but I have not been able to prove this, and at no time did he tell a census taker that he was from LA.

Well, Marsha, I learned years ago to never use the word proof in conjunction with genealogy and the reason is that people confuse the definition of proof as used in legal (and genealogical) proceedings with the mathematical definition of proof. In the legal sense, proof is the result of a collection of evidence and can be changed if additional evidence becomes available. Which is almost always the case in genealogy.



The information on the Barrons in the Butts County History Book (or "Mug" book as they are referred by cynical genealogists like me) cannot be used as evidence, only clues to obtaining evidence. To learn more about the family of "Capt" William Barron you must go to the deed and probate records of Craven Co., NC.

I am at a dead-in with this. One person on-line told me that the Barron family in Butts co. might be mine???? Any clue would be greatly appreciated.

Hi John

I hate to bother you with stupid questions but I have hit a brick wall. I have tried to find information everywhere for Willis Langston my GG Grandfather his son Robert Langston married Alice Barron Daughter of Sanford Barron. He lived in Centre Cherokee County Alabama he was keeper of the poor house and was sheriff I am told. He was married to Nancy ? the first time around 1839 and I am told he was buried beside her in Caves Springs Ga. He was married a second time to a woman named Arney Jane Trammell on May 29,1858. I am trying to find more information on Willis W. or W. Willis Langston like who his father is and what was Nancy's last name where in Caves Springs are they buried.I know he was born in S. C. around 1815 not sure which County. Where would I look for information on keepers of the poor house? And if he was sheriff would there be records somewhere? I have written Centre City Hall and they have no records of him. If he was buried in Ga. maybe he was sheriff there and not in Alabama just not sure.I have found a article in the Gadsden Times Paper in Alabama that had a Obit. for a Willis Langston that lived near Centre that died June 20,1899 I believe this to be My Willis Langston. I know that you are researching the Barron Line and not the Langston's but I thought you might be able to give me some tips on where I might find some answers . Any help would be deeply appreciated.



Thanks Ever So Much For Your Time!!!!!!!!!

Cody is a Barron cousin who contacted me from an old posting I had in 1997 and via snail mail and bad internet addresses, we finally made contact this week - think we can help him out? He is just beginning his adventure on the Barron lineage. In the meantime, I will look up my Barron stuff and see what I have for him. I am home for a few days and will dig into my stuff for him. You can reply directly to him also - I told him of our informal Barron group --seems that there was another researcher back a few months asking about the same Barrons? yes? Thanks - hope everything is going good for you there in my beloved Texas - oh, how I miss it?

Hello everyone!



I spent the entire day at the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore and found some interesting information concerning John Barron. You of course will have to follow through since this is not my John Barron,(unfortunately) but it looks most certainly like the John Barron who traveled fromVA//TN/KY/TX.



This part according to the document is not competely substaniated evidence. Joseph Elias Barron was born in Talbot Co., MD. ca. 1725. His wife was Hannah Evans of Dorchester Co., MD. During or prior to the American Revolution he moved to (present day) Montgomery Co., VA. During the late 1700's, it was called Ft. Christen,(sp?) a major cross road to the Cumberland Gap. Today, Christenburg is a short drive from the North Carolina, Tennessese, and Kentucky line.



This is SUBSTANIATED!

Joseph E. Barron died in Washington Co., TN. in 1793. He had 8 children: John Barron , Born (Oct. 3, 1749 ), Joseph Barron (July 30, 1752), William Barron (Feb. 15, 1755), Henry Barron (June 17, 1757), James Barron, Sarah Barron, Walker Barron (Feb. 9, 1765) and Mary Barron.



The document said that in Jonesboro, TN. County Clerks Office is the will of Joseph E. Barron. The document has it as the county of Washington, Territory South of the Ohio.



This could be the John Barron who married Susannah McBee in TN in 1781 and who lived in Virginia. It seems likely this could be your man!



Lots of Luck.

I've not researched this family much, but if I remember right the sons died out about the time of the Civil War. I believe that Commodore James Barron had a son named James who had a son Samuel all of whom were navy officers.

This should give you enough to get you started and you can fill in the dates and locations and perhaps find out for sure just who was Gabriel's father.

Hi Theron, it's great that you are on-line and I'm putting you on the Barron Circle mailing list.



Caleb Barron was from the James Barron and Jemima line and was born in SC. He lived in Alabama and Mississippi before settling in Smith Co., TX. Several of his sons went to Hamilton Co. about 1860 and two of them (James and David) were hung for murder and cattle theft in 1861. I've written a paper on these brothers which is supposed to be published in East Texas Gen. Soc. Bulletin.

John....I have never been able to find the family of John W. Reid (father of Wm J Reid, who married Serena Barron) before 1860. Various censuses, death certificates, etc, show Wm J Reid as being from Ark, La., and Ms. I have searched through the census records of each state, and have found nothing promising. In looking at your web page I discovered your records of Lotts buried in Covington Co, Ms., and I am faced with a coincidence or something worth my pursuing.



I have had for several years a letter from Williamsburg, Ms., dated March 11, 1889. (Williamsburg is not on the maps now, but it was in Covington Co. The letter is addressed to Cousin Serena Barron and mentions cousin William and Josie. It is signed "Jon"??? Reid. The first name is not clear. I have read the 1880 Covington Co census and found Jessie Reid, his wife July Ann, & 6 children, one of whom is Levi(5 yrs. The township is Williamsburg. Then in 1900 I found Levi, a wife, and a child. The letter proves there were Reids in Covington in 1889 who were related to those in Falls Co. I was in Covington Co briefly, but got to go only to the library, where I failed to find help.



I am wondering if it is possible that both thre Reids and Lotts came from Covington Co, and had some connection there before coming to Texas. The Reids seem to have come to Falls or McLennan Co after 1850,. The W.M. Reid family in Falls Co in 1860 may be the same as the W.. Reid family in McLennan Co in 1870. They are enough alike and enough different to leave me undecided. I did not find the family in Texas in 1850. Have you encountered anything that places the families Lott & Reid together in Covington Co? I've never researched Lotts. When did they come to the Falls Co area?



If you have a record of Lott marriages in Covington it would be interested to see the names of those who married into the family. Is there something here, or can you tell me that the letter from Covington Co and the Lotts in Covington Co constitutes a coincidence?

Dear John,

I am on several family mailing lists and something that has seemed to help everyone is to do a "Roll Call" where everyone sends to the list their family line. This helps you connect with people who may have info on your direct line.(or at least find a close connection.) I'm not sure if anyone on this list is in my family line. I haven't seen any posts that lead me to believe they are in my line. Feel free to use this idea as your own if you would like. :) If you have already done this in the past, could you please do it just once more? I think this would really help me to find some answers to the many questions that I do have.



My family line is as follows:



Henry BARRON m. Elizabeth STRICKLAND

b. 1801 GA

d.1848GA



James Monroe BARRON m. Rebecca Francis Stark

b.1828 Butts Co.,GA

d.18 Dec 1883 Milton (Fulton)Co.,GA



Henry Howell BARRON m. Adger Lola Groover

b.1866 Fulton Co.,GA

d.1937 Cobb Co.,GA



Several sources have shown William BARRON b.1767 Warren Co.,GA m. Martha "Patty" Pharr to be Henry BARRON's father. Anyone in this line, please feel free to e-mail me directly. Thanks John!

Hi! I saw your message which was posted in the Barron Forum on Oct. 18, 1998 concerning Elizabeth Ann Guynes and Samuel Barron. I am Charles Chesson and I live in Bridge City, TX (on the border of LA). I have been working on the Barron family tree for several years since my grandmother was a Barron. Her father was Samuel Madison Barron (b. March 9, 1846) in Mississippi. His brother was Henry Barron and his sister Jennie Barron. Samuel M. and Henry were to have left home when Samuel was 16-years-old because of a step-mother. They were to have had another sister (perhaps a half-sister?) who married a Clyde Clark in MS.



Could you tell me the names of the three children of Samuel M. Barron and Elizabeth Ann Guynes? Perhaps these are the parents of Samuel, Henry, and Jennie. If the names of the children are the same as I have, then they were. If they are, I have finally found our family line!

Please respond!



Thanks, Charles Chesson

John, I appreciate you getting back to me. The names of the children turned out to be: Mariah (or Mary) Jane, Mollie, and Mack Barron, which proved to not be the ones I was looking for. Now I believe the children that I'm looking for are the children of William Barron (b. ca 1826) who was married twice; first to Matilda A. Guynes, then Mary Jane (?). William's parents were Edmond (b. 3-05-1799) and Ann (Barnett) of Simpson Co., MS. Hopefully, you or someone else can help me here; I feel like I'm so close to finding the answer to the puzzle. Thank you for your help, and, yes, please sign me up!



Thanks again, Charles.

On the Barron Genforum you wrote...



William Barron b1740 in Ireland, probably Co. Waterford. Married 1760 Waterford. In Warren Co.GA 1760. Capt. Am.Rev. beheaded by Tories Augusta GA 1778. I have that he was a descendent of the Barons (one R) of Burnchurch and Lord Gerald of Offaby...

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>



This is all bologna that stems from a letter written by a descendant in the 1890s and has been quoted and requoted a thousand times until its source and veracity were lost. And to make things worse the DAR accepted it back when documentation was not required. This Barron line came from Craven Co., NC, and had been there for several generations before the Rev. War and was probably English as was most of the settlers in the tidewater country at that time. If you will research the deed and probate records of Craven Co. you will locate the necessary links between "Capt" Wm. Barron and Prudence Davis. There is no evidence that THIS William served in the revolution.

John-thanks for responding. This thing about beheading in Augusta has driven my sister and I crazy trying to get more info. I checked out the site you referenced and skimmed a lot of Barron info, but did not see mine. Much of my info came from way back by way of the Garrard family. Jacob Garrard married Mary Elizabeth Barron in 1786, probably in Warren Co GA. They lived on the Garrard Plantation at Dennis, Putnam Co. GA. I have that Mary was born in Waterford Co Ireland 25Oct1768. She and three brothers are listed as children of Capt. William Barron and Prudence Davis who were married in Waterford, Ireland in 1760(no about on my record).

John Barron b 1763-4 in Ireland m Frances Garrard, sister of Jacob

William Barron, Jr. b1767 Warren Co GA in Am. Rev. m Martha/Mae Farr

Samuel Barron b1768 Warren Co GA in Am. Rev. m Joanna Braswell

All three brothers lived in Jones Co. GA (I have Samuel died Washington Co. GA, now Jones Co.)

The tale about beheading in Augusta, much of the above and more is in "History of Jones County" by Carolyn White Williams which my sister copied in the GA Archives in 1994. Unfortunately, I only have pages 584 and 585 (small, copied together) as the article continues on the next page. On page 567 are the ending comments of someone about persons he taught before the Civil War. Harrison, William and Sam Barron are mentioned.

These "boys" were old enough to be in the war, but certainly were not the brothers mentioned above, but probably their children.

Ref: History of Jones Co. Ga 1807-1907

Carolyn White Williams

Clinton, GA 1908

It seems certain that she got her info from Barron descendents who continued to live in Jones Co. At least two of Capt. William Barron's sons (shown above) were in the Am. Rev. Obviously, people have fabricated all sorts of things. What evidence do you have that the above is not correct? (Note: I have no information as to whether the Garrards got their info from this source, so cannot state they provide any supporting evidence. What I do know is that Jacob Garrard married Mary Elizabeth Barron and John Barron married Frances Garrard so the two families were interconnected.)

Looking forward to your response. Dave Reese

John, you posted a message on the Barron Forum Oct. 18, 1998 concerning a message by an Evelyn S. Howard of Gen. Society of Old Tyron Co., NC, 1987. You stated that she had said that William Barron's wife was Elizabeth Ann Guynes and that they were married in MS about 1842. How can I get hold of this message on the internet so that I can see what she said, and so that I can get in contact with her to see what she knows about the subject. Perhaps she knows more about William and Elizabeth Ann Guynes such as who their children were. Or do you know her e-mail address? Thanks for any help you can give me!

Jay, your query in the Barron Genforum caught my attention for two reasons: Barron info (of course) and your mention of the Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept. since I'm a retired biologist.



I moderate a group of on-line Barron researchers and there are several who share your line. We have had some messages concerning David Barron, but nothing definite is known about his heritage. I have studied the southern Barron line for 20 years and compiled much data on them. I always felt that this was the David mentioned in the will of John Barron of Lawrence Co., AL. One of this John's daughters (Mary) married Samuel McGaughey and this couple also lived in San Augustine Co., TX, at one time.

John, thanks for your note. If you would like, I would be happy, over the next some days, to send you what I have on the descendants of David Barron. I have put your web page on my "favorites" list so I can get into it easily. I would very much like to know, if you have any suggestions for sources, something about David Barron's life in San Augustine County in the 1830's, 1840's and 1850's



Especially, I would like to know something about his farm land -- did he clear it himself? Crops? Livestock? His house -- was it the jacal style popular during the period? Diet -- tamales, tortillas, etc.? Family dress and fashion -- Spanish or Anglo style? Origins -- Lawrence Co., Alabama? Where in Great Britain? Any sources who could help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to use David Barron, if possible, as a concrete example of the pioneer Anglo settlers near the Old San Antonio Road. The information I need, however, is probably difficult to come by.



I should mention, since you are a biologist, that the bookend, or first and last, chapters of this book -- Eight Historic Trails of Texas -- for the TP&W will be "Texas in 1528," i.e., the year Cabeza de Vaca landed on Galveston Island and "Texas at the Beginning of the Third Millennium," i.e., after she has borne the environmental effects of settlement. I want to contrast the environmental condition of the state for those two periods. From what I know so far, it is shocking. I think it will be an eye opener for the reader.



By the way, are you related to the Cannon Barron family from Limestone County?

Dave, Leon D. Johnson <kyeglei@aol.com> has written a convincing paper on this subject and I yield to him on it. The problem started with speculations and legends treated as fact in a letter from one of the Garrard descendants.



Books such as "The History of Jones County, GA" are well known for interchanging fact with legends and are, therefore, not acceptable sources. As you gain more experience you will understand this.



I routed your message to the Barron Circle and hopefully some will respond as many of the group share your lineage.

I'm afraid I wouldn't be of any help in these areas beyond what might be in the tax rolls, etc. My Barrons are from Navarro Co., but to my knowledge are not related to the line of David. I would love to get a copy of his descendants and will get a copy of your book when finished.

John, thanks for your note.



According to the information I received nearly thirty years ago from Cannon Barron, Groesbeck, Texas, (Limestone Co.), David Barron (1812 to 1868) and S. C. (Mayfield) Barron (1820 to 1889), my great, great, great grandparents, emigrated to San Augustine Co., Texas, from Alabama & Tenn. They produced four children: John E. Barron, G. B. Barron, W. P. Barron and Mary J. Barron. The family moved to central Texas (Limestone and Falls Counties) in 1854.



John E. Barron and Elizabeth (Chisum) Barron, my great, great grandparents, married in 1859 and had six children: Francis, Mary J., J. M., Dervilla, William Calvin, and B. B. It is my understanding the Elizabeth Chisum Barron was the sister of John Chisum of New Mexico's Lincoln County Wars and Billy the Kid fame. (I think John Wayne once played John Chisum in a western movie.)



George W. Woodley and Francis or "Fannie" (Barron) Woodley, my great grandparents and J. W. Woodley (George's brother) and Mary J. Barron married in Cottle County and both couples produced several children. It was my maternal grandfather who sprang from the George and Fannie union.



I can barely recall Fannie Barron as an infirm old woman who wore a bonnet and sat in a rocking chair, when I was little.



As you can see, most of my information applies to those from whom I am a direct descendent. I don't know whether any of this is of any help or interest to you. I have a little bit of biographical information such as military service, occupation, etc., if that would be of any interest to you. Too much to include in an e-mail, so I would send you a copy of the information if you would like.



Good luck on your research into the family. The Barrons appear to be an interesting bunch of folks.



Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Charles, I doubt this would be available on the net. You might check the Tyron Co. genweb site and see, however. You can probably find a copy of this quarterly in most large genealogy libraries. If not perhaps you can get a copy of the query. I can't find my copy.

John-I am not certain if you have been saying William Barron/Prudence Davis is not the William Barron beheaded in Augusta. I received a comment from someone who stated she has a copy of a page from an old Augusta newspaper confirming the beheading of Captain William Barron. If you have info that William Barron/Prudence Davis were not in GA and that he was not beheaded (which means that some other William Barron was beheaded), I hope you or someone will supply this. According to what I have, Prudence died in Warren Co GA abt 1815. They came from Ireland to Warren Co in 1766.

From what I have, the two oldest children, Mary Elizabeth and John were born in Ireland and the two youngest children, William Barron,Jr and Samuel were born in Warren Co GA.

The three sons all lived in Jones Co. GA + John and Samuel died there (I have no death date or place for William Jr.) Mary Elizabeth moved with her husband Jacob Garrard to Putnam Co. GA. Jacob's father John died on his farm in Jones Co GA. I do not know when he moved from Warren Co. Mary Elizabeth's brother John married Jacob's sister Frances. Jones and Putnam are adjacent counties. Warren is one county (about 20 miles) removed from Putnam and two (about 40 miles) from Jones. The Jacob Garrards lived on the side of Putnam which faces Jones, so they did not move very far from his father.

Jacob and his father John were both in the Revolution. William Barron, Jr and Samuel were in the Revolution and their father William. Since they all lived in the same county at the time of the Revolution, it is probable that some or all served together.

I await with interest the reply of you and/or Leon Johnson to whom I will also send this.

Dave, the whole problem with this beheading legend is that there is no source documentation about it that is CONTEMPORARY with the time of the event. I simply want to point descendants to the need to research all aspects of their genealogy and not accept everything written no matter how compelling it sounds. Just keep in mind that this information is in dispute and pass it on with that admonition.



I put you on our mailing list and sent your message to the Barron Circle. I trust that you will receive some messages from members that share your line.

John, thanks for continuing to respond. I am really not much concerned if my William Barron was beheaded. What I really want to know is if William Barron/Prudence Davis were the parents of my Elizabeth Barron and her apparent (now I am not even sure of this) brothers John, Samuel and William Barron, Jr. in Warren Co. GA. Then, I would like to know whatever is known about the lineage of whoever was her father. This whole thing has now focused on an event rather than genealogy---the latter is where I want to go.

John: I live in Virginia where I retired in 1995 as a US Army Officer Recently I had occasion to help a friend move to Salado, Texas. My friend introduced me to his neighbors-- T&V Palmer. Mr. Palmer informed me that his grandfather was named Barron (Thomas Hudson) After looking at some of his records, I asked him for advise on how to start tracing my Dad's lineage. He gave me several tips, one of which was to contact you for further advice. I would appreciate any information or pointers you can provide. My Dad's name was Edgar (born in Saint Clair county, Alabama in 1915); my grandfather was named Grover C. Barron, and my great-grandfather, I believe, was named Jesse. Besides my own immediate line, I would like to know more about where our family came from. Thanks for any help you can provide. Regards,

Dear John,

Are you descended from either of the Barron/Hilley marriages of 1841 in Elbert County, GA? If not, do you know anyone who is?



We are researching the descendants of Thomas Hilley, Sr. and Mary Walker Bond Hilley -- we have been trying to link these families in. We would like to share info. We initially thought that Elizabeth and Letty were daughters of Thomas & Mary's son Francis Hilley and his wife, Mary Ray Oliver, but now think they may have been daughters of William W. Hilley, Sr. and Martha "Patsy" McGuire.

One of his descendants (a Mrs. Davis, I think) submitted a bunch of data to LDS way back in the '50s which had many mistakes. Of course, we'll never be able to get rid of these genealogical viruses as new people come into the field and believe everything without checking themselves. She had him marrying his mother among other things.

Hi!



I was just doing some exploring this morning at some different sites. Just happened to see your postings concerning Smith Barron and Lucy Reeves. Are either of you descended from this line?



This is my direct line through my paternal grandmother. Smith Barron would have been her g grandfather. Joseph Smith Barron was her grandfather and John Thomas Barron and Millie Johanna Coltharp were her parents. My grandmother lacked 1 month living to 90 years. She spent many years in the 1960's putting together a pretty impressive genealogy list of her family.



Are you interested in exchanging data?

These names are not mentioned in the information that I have. I have taken a really good look at what I have. I have not done any research myself in this line of family. What I have is from the research of my grandmother.



The body of data contained in her records is in the lines of : Joseph Barron 1803-1839/Sarah Graham Hays and his brother Smith Barron1805-1868/Lucy Reeves. When Joseph and Lucy had died, Smith and Sarah married. I am descended from Smith Barron/Lucy Reeves.



I appreciate the offer to join your group, but am afraid I must decline for now. I am extremely involved in another of my lines right now that takes up most of my free time. I am raising a grandson who will be 4 yrs old this month, so believe me, there isn't much free time these days!!! I will keep you in mind -- maybe at a later date.

Thanks for sending me the link to your home page. I was finally able to get in to view everything. I would like to be added to what ever Barron email exchange lists that you are maintaining. My grandmother was Agnes Savilla Barron b. 1-9-1899, daughter of Milton Cross Barron and Louisa A. Nicklas. She was born in Palo Pinto County, Texas and her father was from Lillie, Union Parish, Louisiana. In one of the messages some mentioned trying to locate Jack Barron in Topeka. I spoke with Jack 2-3 years ago and he was not on line at that time.



I have been doing Barron research for quite some time and would love to exchange date with anyone. I have spoken with Colleen Swatner and Beth Hillis in the past. Bill Barron that you also mentioned in one of the messages is a cousin of mine as is Donald Barron who I believe has already contacted you. There is quite a great deal of information circulating on the Barrons (especially Capt. William) that is incorrect. It seems as if people made a good story fit there needs. A couple of years ago I did a print out of my files just so that they could be looked at in hard copy and notes could be made for entering source information. Unfortunately, a couple of people that I let look at them copied the records and distributed all of the information errors and all. Most people don't want to work at figuring anything out they just want it handed to them. This distribution of unedited records helped to perpetuate misleading information.



Let me know what I can do to help with compiling and exchanging data. Have you been in touch with Leon Johnson. He is doing a great deal of Barron research. KYEGLEI@aol.com

I lost a cousin in Palo Pinto County: James Barron (son of Joseph Barron, son of James and Jemimah) had a daughter Celia Barron (sister of my G-Grandfather Jefferson Davis Barron) b. 1848 and in Smith County, Texas, she married William Lanham. They eventually wound up in Palo Pinto County - along with other Barrons I presume. I have never been able to trace her family:



61. Celia[8] Barron (James[7], Joseph[6], James[5], Joseph Elias[4], John[3], Joseph (Barrand)Sr.[2], Robert[1]). Born, 22 Feb 1848, in Mississippi, died in Texas. Occupation: Housewife.



W. S. Lanham and his family are found in the 1880 Texas Census

[Vol. 11, ED 154, Sheet 17, Line 9] in Erath County, Just. Pct. 7. His

age is listed as 29, born Texas. Celia his wife is 32, born Mississippi,



son James S is 6, born Texas, daughter Claudie is 3, born Texas, daughter

Willie E. is 1, born Texas.



In the 1900 Texas Census, Will S. Lanham is found in the listing

for Palo Pinto County, Pet. 4 [Vol. 87, EN 122, Sheet 2, Line 2]. He is

49 years of age and his birthdate is listed as April 1851. Wife Celia is



52, born Jan 1848 Mississippi, son Jerri is 25, born Oct 1874 Texas,

daughter Claudie is 23, born Oct 1876 Texas, daughter Stella is 21, born



Jan 1879 Texas, daughter Leila is 19, born Aug 1880 Texas, son Frank H.

is 16, born Nov 1883 Texas, daughter Lauvina is 14, born Dec 1885 Texas,



daughter Ada is 8, born Sep 1891 Texas.



In the 1910 Texas Census, William Lanham is found in the listing

for Palo Pinto County [ED 187, Sheet 206, Vol. 113]. He is 59 years old,



wife Celia is 62, daughter Ada is 18.



Celia married William Lanham, 23 Dec 1873, in Smith Co., Texas (Marriage



G-313). William was born, Apr 1851, in Texas. There are seven known children:



i. James S.[9]. Born, Oct 1874, in Texas.

ii. Claudie. Born, Oct 1876, in Texas.

iii. Stella. Born, Jan 1879, in Texas.

iv. Leila. Born, Aug 1880, in Texas.

v. Frank H. Born, Nov 1883, in Texas.

vi. Lauvina. Born, Dec 1885, in Texas.

vii. Ada. Born, Sep 1891, in texas.



Has anyone ever seen any of these names in their research. I tried to get a history of Palo Pino County but the library there is most uncooperative. There is one family of Lanham still there but I cannot seem to contact them



By the way, I am moving to Dallas the end of this month. Closer to Palo Pinto anyway. My mother, the Gdaughter of Jefferson Davis Barron will be 97 this July.

Thomas Barron was in Lawrence County, AL 1830. At that time, on the census he was 40-50 years old. Do you have any information regarding him? Two of his daughters, Mary and Sarah married Samuel Carroll Martin. Sarah died in Tishomingo County, MS and that is when he married Mary(Polly). Some of the Barron's went to Sumter County, AL with Samuel Carroll Martin, but then went on to Tishomingo, MS and on to Cherokee County, TX.

Liz, I am attaching a descendant chart of what I have on this line. If you aren't happy about attached files (they scare me sometime) I'll put it on my web page.



I have followed this line extensively (at least the Texas ones) as I have been trying for 20 years to determine if the John W. Barron (son of Wm Barron & Lavinia Martin) in Cherokee Co. was my g-grandfather. My daughter Lucy (lbarron@fas.harvard.edu) thinks he is due to our McClung family's association with the related Martin family in Johnson Co., TX, but I still lean toward the son of Charles Barron in Jackson Par., La.



I started the chart with an unknown Barron man whom I think is the father of the several Barron men in northern Alabama c1820. He would have lived in NC c1800. I have essentially nothing on Thomas Barron of Lawrence Co., AL, but think he is the son of the above and the father of Britton and William Barron. Britton and Wm's widow Lavinia came to Cherokee Co. in the 1850s along with a whole slew of Martins.



What is your interest in this line? To my knowledge it is not related to the "Capt" William line although the NC link may show more than I think. Capt. Wm was actually from Craven Co., NC, and not Ireland as the rest of the world seems to think from believing the legend. I have been in contact with Leon Johnson as you asked previously and feel he has the correct info on this line.



Thanks for you message and hope the attached file is of some use to you.

Thanks for you message, Reg. Frankly, I would be stunned if such a document did exist and was authentic. Although white men did, of course, take up with Indian women, to my knowledge it was never openly and I've never seen evidence an actual marriage from that time period. Our thinking on the subject has been colored by the media and by political correctness.



On the census of 1850 & 1860, Davis Barron's wife Mariah said that she was born in SC. The Choctaw were a southern Mississippi tribe, unknown to the settlers "back east" prior to the settlement of the west because of the warlike Creeks in between. So right there something smells fishy. I doubt that she was Indian in spite of the legendary information that has circulated. I have gone through the same exercise many times with my Lott family researchers who also think they are all Indian due to the legend of "Chief Lott" who signed the treaty of Dancing Rabbit.

This was super. Using the address you sent, I got a phone no. at Yahoo.com. It wasn't the Jr. I reached, but his mother my paternal great-aunt, Yonia Belle (Prince) Barron. She's 88 yr old, sharp witted, a real delight. I had no idea any of these Barrons were still living. We talked for about an hour and I plan to visit her in Corsicana soon. She has a picture of my g.grandfather, Ben F. Barron, that she says she will try to get copied for me.



She said her husband Lano, who died in 1995, always told people she took a step down when she, a Prince, married a Barron.



It was a thrill to meet a family member from my grandfather's generation. I thought you'd like to know the happy outcome. Again thanks for your help!

Brenda, what a thrill; I am so happy for you.



Do you know that I am from Corsicana. My dad still lives there and all the Barrons in the phone book there belong to my family except your Robert Lano and Chan Lano. I had never met any of them, but have asked about them. Seems like my uncle told me that Lano had worked for the highway department. I have to go "home" next week and see to my father as he is in a nursing home and has been sick.



By the way, I grew up in Corsicana with several families of Spurlocks. We were all cotton mill people from the wrong side of the tracks so to speak. One of them was Brown Spurlock. I think his family moved to Waco about the time I left for college. Any connection?

Hi John,



I can't believe we can't establish a connection between the two Barron families in Corsicana. Yonia Belle('Bella') said her husband Lano was the State Supervisor of Agricultural Education in Austin for, I think, 19 years. He was also founding editor of the national Future Farmer's Magazine in Wash. DC, where they lived for six years. At one time he published the Breeder's Gazette for the stock industry. Bella says she lives in the middle of 400 acres with her son on one side and her daughter on the other. She drives her pickup all over the farm but doesn't get out on the street very often.



Husband Skip is from the Ava MO Spurlocks. A lot of the Spurlocks have traced back to a huge family of boys that came from Ireland in the 1700's. We can't get that far back with ours. We're stuck at John (b. 1811, Lee Co. VA) married Sarah Ann Mason, KY. John and Sarah settled in Ava, MO and also had a huge family. I've seen Sterling Brown Spurlock (1800's) written up in the Spurlock Family Quarterly. I bet Brown Spurlock came from that family. As far as I know they're not related to us.



Hope your dad is doing better and you have a nice visit with him.

Dear John,

I had noticed your message on GenForum and meant to write you for several weeks. To be honest, I thought I had but then couldn't find any "sent item" to you.



A group of Hilley cousins are researching the descendants of Thomas Hilley, Sr. (RS) and his wife, Mary Walker Bond Hilley. If you descend from either William D. Barron or Rufus, you are also a Hilley descendant. If you descend from Calvin or another son, we hope you are in contact with a descendant of William or Rufus.



It is our understanding from examining the censuses that William D. Barron and his wife, Elizabeth Hilley Barron, were both deceased by the end of the Civil War and that Calvin took some (if not all) of the children. Ann Holloman, one of our researchers, found Calvin and family on the -- I think -- 1870 Floyd Co., GA Census. She is trying to piece this thing together, and we would appreciate any help or information you can provide. We have TONS of info and are willing to share. We would like very much to include the Barron cousins in our book.



Also, I am on fire to know about your reference, "Bowersville, p. 116." If there is a Bowersville book, I am not aware of it. My Johnson ancestors lived in Bowersville from about 1858-1950, more or less -- most are buried there. I would love to know the name of the Bowersville book. Johnsons are not as easy to trace as Hilleys.

Hoping to hear from you,

Nancy, I am not descended from this line of Barrons as far as I know. I refer to this line as the line of Barnabas. I collect information on all southern Barrons and was answering a query.



My reference was as follows: !CENSUS: Hart Co., GA 1860 (Bowersville, p 116)... . This is simply my way of recording census data and Bowersville was the location on the census along with page 116. The Genforum software messed up the spacing and caused some of the confusion.

Dear John,

Wow!! You are truly organized, and I liked your webpage. I would like very much to be added to your BARRON mailing list, and hope that descendants of the Barron brothers who married Hilley girls (perhaps sisters, perhaps first cousins) will identify themselves.



Our project is enormous -- it is hard to believe how many descendants one couple can have in 200 years. It is our belief that every Hilley in the southern tier of states is descended from Thomas and Mary Hilley, not to mention many descendants with other last names. We have an enthusiastic group who hope to put this book together by the end of next year.



If you have Elbert-Hart-Franklin County roots, we will try to be helpful on your other lines. Two of our primary researchers, Chandler Eavenson and Ann Holloman, having been gathering information about the early settlers in this area for 30+ years. Many families came through this area on the westward path during the years after the Revolution.



You might also be interested to know that a different pair of our primary researchers are from Texas: Joy Zowie and Doris Fleming started with the Texas Hilleys and now are working on the "All-Hilley Search." If you would like, I will write a query about this family including the information we have on them to date and send it to you for the Barron mailing list. I need to write a good query, anyway, and to place on the Barron surname in GenForum and on some of the Georgia county query pages.

Hi John,

I just stumbled onto your page. Great work! Is your Barron Circle still active? I am very anxious to contact Karen Robertson & Patrick Harrison. I also have a Tishmingo, MS, Saml McGehee, but mine went to Carroll Co., AR., where his dau, Mary, m. my gf, Clarence Edmondson. Clarence was the son of Richard D. Edmondson, gch of John Quincy Edmondson, & g-g-gch of Richard Edmondson b. 1805 SC and Margaret b. 1805 SC/NC.



Richard and Margaret were in Union Co., GA in 1834 (Whites Among the Cherokees). Living 2 hh's away from them was the family of Elijah Barron. The proximity of the families and the fact that my gf, g-gf, & g-g-gf are all buried in the Barron Cemetery in Vaughn, AR (Benton Co.), are the reasons that I suspect that Margaret might have been a Barron. The Edmondsons also have links with Cherokee Co., GA. My g-g-gf joined a NC Co. in the Civil War and is also linked to Clay Co.

Looking for descendants of William D. BARRON (b. about 1821) and Elizabeth HILLEY (b. about 1823. They were married in Elbert County, GA 16 Jan 1841. William was the son of Barnabas Barron and "Polly" Dooley. Elizabeth was probably the daughter of William W. Hilley and Martha "Patsy" McGuire. According to the 1850 and 1860 GA Censuses, this couple had nine children:



(1) Willis N(ewton) Barron, b. about 1841. Willis m. Azzie Algary 2 Feb 1890, Hart, GA

(2) Frances E. Barron, b. about 1843.

(3) Letty Ann Barron, b. about 1845.

(4) Martha P. Barron, b. about 1848.

(5) Mary Catherine Barron, b about 1850.

(6) Wm. Barnabas Barron, b. about 1853.

(7) Leonidas Barron, b. about 1855. He m. Lou Chrisler 17 Feb 1884, Hart Co., GA

(8) Mary Jane Barron, b. about 1857

(9) Lucy U. Varron, b. about 1859.



On 10 Feb 1865, Calvin H. Barron (brother of William D. Barron and Trustee of Willliam's estate) petitioned in Hart Co., GA to be " temporary guardian of Letty Ann, Martha, Catherine, Barnabas, Leonidas, and Jane Barron, as their mother was also deceased." Calvin apparently moved to Floyd Co., GA by 1870, taking at least one of the BARRON/Hilley children with him, Catherine.

Dear John,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this query. I will send the query on William D. Barron/Elizabeth Hilley in a separate transmission, so that you can forward it directly to the mailing list (if you wish). I will have to check out the 1870 GA Census a little further, and see if I can patch together the names of the children of Rufus F. Barron/Letty Hilley before I write the query on them.



As nearly as we can tell, Elizabeth was the daughter of William W. Hilley, Sr. and Letty was the daughter of Francis Hilley. William and Francis were brothers. The Censuses before 1850, as you know, are not nearly as helpful as we would wish. However, it is almost 100% certain that both girls were granddaughters of Thomas Hilley, Sr. and Mary Walker Bond. William D. Barron, Rufus F. Barron, and Calvin H Barron were all sons of Barnabas Barron. I will send you the names of the other siblings if you do not already have them, I just have to look them up.



Thanks for your offer of help. Looking forward to receiving "Barron" news -- maybe we can figure out what happened to this family after they moved to Floyd County, GA.

Ok, I found him in the 1860 Winn Co. LA census, and in the 1880 census in Bell Co. TX married to Mary J. with the two girls Leona and Nannie. But in the census his name seems to be Jerome G. not Jerome G.W.. Could it be that the "W" following "G" (in the column under "race"in the census) was incorrectly thought to be his initial? Later children of Jerome and Mary were Newton Robert b. Dec 28, 1882, Johnetta b. March 1885, Maggie b. Feb 1889, Jesse A. b Sept 1891 and Clara Bell b. Jan 1893, all born in Bell Co. TX. Jerome died in abt 1892. These later children were living with their mother M.J. Dearmon in the 1900 Census. (evidently she had remarried and widowed again). Newton was my grandfather, my dad knew his grandfather's name was Jerome, and my father knew his uncle Jesse.

I was going through my records and I have two Jerome Barrons. The first one is Jerome G. Barron, b. 1854 Rapides Parish, Louisiana, d aft 1880. He was the son of Gabriel M. and Martha Barron. Married December 20, 1877, Bell County, Texas to Mary J. Cooper. My records only show them with two daughters Leona, b. 1874 and Nannie, b. 1879.



The other Jerome G. W. Barron, b. February 17, 1852, Choctaw County, Mississippi, d. March 3, 1885, Colorado City, Mitchell County, Texas. He is the son of John Clayton Barron and Mary Barron (a cousin). Married November 20, 1879 to Nancy J. Delaney.



I would suggest getting the Soundex for Texas 1880 & 1900 and seeing what county (most likely Bell) Jerome is listed in and the children that are listed with him. My guess is the same as John's that Newton Robert Barron is probably the son of Jerrome G. Barron who was the son Gabriel.

Hello Gloria, Sorry, I can't help you. My Barrons came from Georgia to Alabama to Texas. They arrived in Texas about 1870, and settled in Collin Co. My Barrons came from Ireland, I think, but I have no proof. Good luck with your research. I'm always happy to talk to another Barron.

Hi John,



How does the Barron Circle work? Are you the "gatekeeper" & we send messages to you or do you have a list of members to whom we mail directly? Or, do we just send info to those working on our particular line? Elizabeth stated that she had a Margaret b. 1805 m. to an unknown Richard, which fits perfectly. Margaret would be the dau of James and sister to Elijah Barron of 1834 Union Co., GA.



Not only will this Barron info help me to provide Margaret with parents, it will also help me to narrow down the search for Richard Edmondson's parents. Right now, it's looking as though he was a desc of Richard EDMONDSON ( & Priscilla) d. 1788 Franklin Co., VA. He left a will naming his ch: Sally Cockram, Polly Smith, James Powell Edmondson, Kemplin Edmondson, Elizabeth Haille (m.2. John Craghead), Richard, Humphrey (m. Frances SWANSON), Philemon, John, Wm., Daughter m. Ths. Jones, & Priscilla (m. John SWANSON).



I mention the ch. because they tie into the Barron line in several ways. PIONEER FAMILIES OF FRANKLIN CO, VA by Marshall Wingfield, Chesapeake Bk. Co., Berryville, VA, pp 205/7 has information on the family of Wm. & Mary McGuire SWANSON, who moved from Franklin Co., VA to Wilkes Co., GA in 1787, along with the Edmondsons, who had m. his ch. I don't know who Wm. Swanson's father was, but ...



Culpeper Co., VA DBk 3:206, 20 July 1746, Richard Swanson & wife, Rebecca, of Brun. Co. to John QUARLES of Louisa Co. for L10, 90 a. on W side of Little Fork of Red Oak. Wit: Wm. Sanford. Ths. READ, Hugh Williams.



Then, on 6 Oct. 1758, Richard VAUGHAN, planter mortgaged 150 a. for L20 6s to Theop. Field of Pr. Geo. Co., Merchant. This land was described as patented by Richard SWANSON on 10 Sept. 1755 & conveyed by him to Richard Vaughan on 19 June 1756. Wit: Robt. Dunkley, Wm. Call, Theop. Field, Jr.



Now, these guys look like the families we are finding in SC & GA & finally AR, where 3 generations of my Edmondsons are buried in the Barron Cemetery in Vaughn, AR. AN INTIMATE HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION IN PITTSYLVANIA CO, VA by Frances H. Hurt, p. 221: Wm. Swanson lived in Albemarle Co. in 1750 and by 1768, was living in W Pittsy. Co., on land which became part of Henry, then Franklin Co. I have not checked to see if there are Quarles or Barrons nearby.



THE COMPENDIUM OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY Vol 5:402: Wm. Adair b. 1794 m. 1818 Frances Swanson Edmondson (1802-82). Henrietta Adair (1820-82) m. James A. Barron (1815-68) Master Mason in good standing and free of the books. Frances II was the dau of Frances Swanson & Humphrey Edmondson, who m. Goochland Co., VA, 22 Nov. 1779 (Douglas Register). Frances (Fanny) was b. 14 Apr. 1794, Ogle. Co., GA & m.2. Saml Shields 18 Nov 1808 & she d. 2 Nov. 1883, Morgan Co., GA (obit & tombstone).



Then, we have James Smith's dau, Patty (probably named Martha), who m. a Barron & was left land on Long Crk., where there were Quarles, Barrons & a Richard Edmondson in SC.



Sorry to make this so long, but as you can see, I'm very excited about this! Please send to any members, who would be interested.

For a bit of clarification on Jerome and Jerome G. W. Barron. These are both from my line and hope I can clear up some of the confusion.



Jerome G. Barron - son of Gabriel is just that " Jerome G. Barron" -



"Jerome G. W. Barron" was the son of John Clayton Barron and Mary Barron. Jerome G. W. Barron married Mrs. Nancy Joyner Dulaney\Delaney Nov 20, 1879 in Bell Co. TX by G. W. Green, Minister of the Gospel. I have a copy of the marriage license that has his name as above. Nancy was a widow with 2 daughters. They moved to Colorado City, Mitchell Co., TX [not sure just when?]where her daughters owned and operated a millinery store. Jerome G. W. Barron supposedly died [from family records] from pneumonia 3 Mar 1885. I have never located any public record of his death nor a burial place in Mitchell Co. I do think that Nancy married again after his death -- will have to dig up that research to make certain? I do not have any record of any children that Jerome and Nancy may have had while they were married?



Jerome Barron, s/o Gabriel and Martha [maiden name unk], married Mary J. Cooper as evidenced by Bell Co. Tx records, on 20 Dec 1877. Jerome was involved in some land deals with my great grandfather, Lewellyn Gilliland Barron [1854-1940] in Bell Co. TX in the 1880's. Jerome was a half uncle to my gr grandfather, L.G. Another half uncle, Martin V.B. Barron and half aunt, Martha J. Barron, also lived in Bell Co. on some of the land purchased by both L. G. and Jerome Barron. I lost track of Jerome in Bell Co - my great grandfather and family moved to New Mexico right after the turn of the century. I have copies of deed records of land purchased in Bell Co. -

I had always been told that Jerome was killed in an accident involving a windlass while digging a well? Once again - need to do some more digging in files to make sure of this information.

I have not been working on the research project for some time, but am always happy to get new information on my Barron lines. I hope to return full time one of these days again. I am headed to Salt Lake City tomorrow and hope to find time to go to the research center to prowl around a bit. There seems to be many mistakes and inconsistencies in their records, but some are good reference points and offer a good start for further research.

I appreciate the information on Jerome and his other children. Did Jerome G. Barron die in Bell Co? Would love to have anything you are willing to share on this line - and I will offer up whatever I have for you.



Thanks,

Nancy, gatekeeper is a good way to put it. The problem is that the list (70+) is pretty fluid with people coming and going off of it. For this reason it is nice to send generalized messages to me and I will route them to the group. However, the only rule we have is that there are no rules.

Theron, it was my pleasure to visit by l. d. with you this a.m. I wish I had more real data to offer you. You were tenacious in your search for descendants of Sol and Fannie L. COLE BARRON, my great aunt. I listened with interest about W. W. BARRON'S stay in the Powers/Barron home in Buffalo Gap during his early schooling. You have presented another puzzle, however, it is a most challenging puzzle. Did Parker Barron WETSEL include the article per W. W. BARRON written in the Texas Encyclopedia about the late 1930s or 1940s? Without the article before me, it appears the only mention of his education-" His education was at the (unnamed) Abilene TX schools". Please give me a wee bit of time to get the articles in the mail to you? I am awaiting laser eye surgery and will be back in the hunt in a short time. I hope I am not creating a problem for you in mentioning the article from a recent article in Texas Cooperative. I do recall the article appeared shortly before the ceremony held at the Ranger Musuem and as I said this a.m. I was unable to find an address or telephone number for the author.



John Barron, Austin, TX does give unstintingly to many rooters. John's opinion, though unfounded, reflects that Joseph BARRON, father of Solomon, b. 1790s in SC and died at age 61 in 185l in Winston Co., MS has two brothers, Caleb BARRON, died in early 1860s while visiting in Hamilton Co., TX and was returned to Smith Co., TX for burial. The particulars of Ezekial BARRON birth and death are unclear to me without digging at this time. However, beggining in Al, MS the above three were shown on the same pages as young married families. As I am repetitive, Caleb is the only one that reached TX. It seems to me Ezekial died near Joseph in N.E. MS. I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, however, I concur with John B's. idea that the three were brothers. There is a premier Caleb researcher, Coleen Swantner of Kerriville, TX and I have not had any exchanges with her. I have been anxious to learn of her findings or opinions about the above three named brothers. She has not come on line and joined the Barron Circle.



I noticed just now John has given the Circle two mailing addresses for you. May I ask you to clarify for my mail-out to you.



I may be asking you a dumb question-until you found W.W.B's. stay in the the Barron/Power home. Have your ever entertained the thought that Joseph Barron's father was related to some of the VA, MD Barrons? In following your research of Thomas Hudson BARRON it appears he did not take a route or stopovers in the S.E states en route to TX?



Please be patient with another Barron story. A college mate in the early 1950s at TT lived with his family, James Monroe Barron and Jessie Dunn and grew up in Waco. He well recalls another unrelated Barron family in Waco. They never made any relationship or common kin. Buddy and my husband have continued to have lunch each month with a group of ole' jocks. Buddy thinks he recalls a Hollice Barron that would be a contemporary of his father, chief of Waco police, born in 1900. Does this name appear in your line?



I will close for now and as quickly as my eye problem is corrected, expect the mail-out I promised to you.

I do have one bright hit to share with you. I have been combining my research efforts with a Cole cuz. He appears to be a bright young man and a very thorough researcher. His gggrandfather is a brother to my grandfather, George Washington COLE and Fannie COLE BARRON. Our combined efforts have turned up another sister of the above three. A Louise COLE married Edward RAGAN in s.e. MO.

Hi,

Saw your posting on genforum about the Georgia branch of the Barrons and thought I would write.



I'm related thru my ggggmother, Frances E Barron b 184?, daughter of William D Barron b ca 182?, don't know his wife's name, someone on the genforum shows it as Elizabeth Hilley and says they were married in 1841.



William was the son of Barnabas Barron, know as "Squire Barnes".



This is all that I have at this time, relatives in Georgia are getting some info on my Sanders line and they have a poem written about one of the Barrons, my relation, that I believe was in one of the wars.



Information on genforum shows William D Barron's brother was a Calvin H Barron.



Do you have any additional information to help me fill in the gaps??

Gale, I saw you query on Genforum concerning Barnabas Barron. There were several of them in GA 1800-1850, but yours was married to Polly Dooley and lived in Jackson/Elbert Co. most of his life. His parents were Thomas Barron and Obedience Rodgers who also settled in GA but were originally from Edgecombe Co., NC.



You would be well advised to ignore the "information" that you found in county history books. These are not acceptable sources and are responsible for perpetuating such myths as the "beheading of Capt. Wm Barron" which never happened. Go to the county records and research them to accumulate your evidence.



I invite you to join our group of on-line researchers who study the southern Barron family. Several share your line. We store our results on my web page which can be accessed by clicking on the following:

John,



Thank you for responding to my genforum query. From what I have seen so far on the forum, there is quite a bit of controversy. I will take your advice and not believe everything I read unless somewhere there is proof, but knowing that sometimes due to different circumstances, you have to go on what's been recorded and see if you might piece things together I'm keeping an open mind.



My brother Ken Sanders lives in Austin and he and his wife are working on our family history as well.



Just accessed the email as i'm out the door, but am looking forward to checking out your web site.

To: JBarron933@aol.com



Please forgive me if this has been discussed before. There seems to be a disparity of opinion concerning the ancestors of Joseph Barron d.13May1725 in Talbot Co., MD.



There are those who say that he is the son of Robert Barron b.1617 England. Others say Waterford, Ireland. Presumably this is the Robert Barron who came across the water on the "David" which sailed from London for Virginia in September, 1635. Some give his wife as Barbara ?.



Others say Joseph is the son of a different Robert Barron b.1645 in MD d.1717 married to a Mary Sockwell b.1646 in MD.



Still others say Joseph is the son of a William Barron b.Abt.1640 in England d.3 June 1688 in St.Michaels Par., Barbadoes. They list his wife as Elizabeth ?. I don't quite get this one as the parents presumably either dropped young Joseph off in Maryland then went on to Barbadoes to have other children or Joseph went with his family to Barbadoes then returned to a Maryland he had not seen since before age 7.



I would appreciate it if anyone could offer evidence to either support or refute these competing proposals.



Sincerely yours and quite confused, Greg E. Barron

John, I corresponded with you last summer about my search for James Francis Barron. I had found information of him on your census stuff. Anyway, I thought I would let you know that this summer I had quite a bit of luck. I was able, with the help of a lot of very nice people, to trace him back to VA and find some information about his family. A lot of the information came from the book Early Settlers of Lee County, VA by Anne Laningham. I was sent copies of some of the pages of this book. Actually, this Barron family is the only one mentioned in the book. I tried to get the book from my local library, but it is not circulated because it is geneology, so I have sent to have more pages copied for me that will have information about the other people who married into the family. If you think this will help some who are seeking information about their Barrons from VA, I will be happy to share.

As far as I can tell, the southern Barrons that I work on were English and possibly Scots-Irish. Some folks insist that they were Irish, but none were Catholic so go figure. There are also Spanish speaking Barrons (especially here in central Texas) and I have seen many relatively recent immigrants (mostly German) who were named Baron.



So I guess the answer to your question is "it depends." Thanks,

Dear J. L.,



I will be astounded if William N. G. Barron could was anyone other than William NARCISO GONZALES Barron, so we certainly are cousins of some degree. My full name is Joseph BARRON Chandler, Jr. Dr. Archibald Ingram Barron, signer of the SC Ordinance of Secession, was my 3g/grandfather.



I have the "Barron Book" 9such as it is) put together in the ?1920? (it's at home at the moment and I am at the LOC doing research) and updated ca. 1980 by John I. Barron of York, SC.



I haven't done a lot of work on this family because it is so well developed here in the USA; I'll continue to leave that to others.



I am VERY MUCH INTERESTED in working on our Scotch-Irish/Scottish roots. Despite the loss of the records in the 1922 explosion/fire in Dublin that destroyed most Record Office records, I still have hope of finding evidence in N.I. and Scotland. I have some good clues/records from the time of JAMES BARONE (ca. 1530-1569) of Edinburg, St. Giles elder, and co-founder of the Church of Scotland (Presbyterian) with John Knox and 31 others who convened on 20 December 1560. JAMES is our "traditional ancestor," but haven't yet proved it.

William N.G.Barron had six sons, five of whom served in the Civil War. My great grandfather, Joseph Barron, died of wounds received in battle at Vicksburg MS. He served with the Botetourt Light Artillery. If interested, I have Service records on four of his other brothers.

He believes "there is identifiable information to link Sol omon Barron/Fannie Cole to Thomas Hudson Barron." Do you find his query to be interesting? I do. May I seek your permission to share Joseph Barron's census work with him? He went around the horn to find me. After making several phone calls to the Cave families in Roby, TX, they directed him to my cousin, Parker Barron Wetsel, also of the area. Parker urged him to coctact me.

Thanks! I will join you on line! (Not tonight, however...I have no discipline and must work tomorrow!) I am not a Barron...my step father is. I am trying to trace a paternal line for him. He is 80 years old and is planning to buy a computer to do research on his family from home, as he is unable to get out much. I am trying to get him a good start...and I have become rather curious. This is what I have firmed up:



Samuel Barron b. 1796 in Maryland

married to: Mary b. 1808

children: Jasper b. 1842 who was a machinist

Moris? b. 1848

Daniel b. 1849

Joseph b. 1852 worked in foundry

Mary b. 1853

Info from 1870 Census.

All lived in Houston from 1837 on...Samuel started a school in Houston.



Samuel's son Jasper married Fannie from Alabama b. 1848

Their children were: Jm Jasper b. 1872

Mary (Addie) b. 1876

Cleveland b. 1887



Cleveland married Winnie Lois Klipper b. 1897

Their children were: Harvey Cleveland b. 1919

Jim b. (? haven't asked him yet!)

Lovelle b. (?)



Harvey Cleveland is by step-dad.



My question.....Who was Samuel Barron's dad? I'm also curious about what happened before he was 40 years old. Could this family be his second family? I haven't found him listed anywhere before 1837....any ideas?

Nope, I've done a little looking myself. Many Barron lines started in Maryland, however. Thomas Hudson Barron, who was a famous Texas Ranger and Indian fighter, was the first of the surname in Texas and his family was from Maryland by way of Kentucky. His family was thought to be from Charles Co., MD.

Dear Mr. Barron, I have recently started tracing my family genealogy. My grandmother was Susan Catherine Harrison Menzies (Kitty Sue) of Menard, Texas.

I was wondering if you had any additional information. I would be grateful for any thing you have. I have not been able to find any information on the Harrisons except the little bit that Sue contributed to the 1973 Barron book. I believe that Sue took my father and his brothers back to Virginia when they were children and there is even a picture of them in the 1973 book we have.

Dear John C.,

I just read your reply to my question re my grandfather whom I thought was a John Barron, but if my and your information is correct, is William P. Barron from Washington Co. Tenn. ( as you said ). It would seem that my lineage goes back to William and Elizabeth Barron from England who migrated to Barbados and then to Easton, Talbot Co., Maryland. Apparently, they were born about 1640 in England. You seem to have researched the Barrons of many branches, so perhaps you can validate my information. It seems that the Barrons moved to TN. and then to Northwestern AR. and my father, Stephen Adlae Barron came to TX about 1911 and married my mom, Ada Myrtle Harrell and I was born 2/19/29 in Sherman, TX.

Thank you John for responding, and I also live in TX. (Benbrook). I assume that your Barrons came from LA, TX and perhaps Miss. and maybe MO. my parents always said that we were of Irish, English and Scottish descent, although it now seems the more direct path was English, which I am not too proud of. Ha! I tend to side with the poor Scots and the downtrodden Irish; although they probably do not have too much to be proud of either! Also, there seems to be a Norman connection and a Spanish offshoot, somewhere back down the line, perhaps from the Greeks, on their way to the British Isles, by way of Spain. I suppose we are all brothers, if we go back far enough. Is that profound or not? It certainly does boggle my puny mind. I have visited your website and found a lot of information there, although with my brief perusement I did not see any obvious relatives. But at the age of 70+ I have less attention span, patience and visual acuity than I used to have. Anyway, I will look forward to further correspondence with you. I just got back from a visit to the Barron Cemetery outside of Vaughn AR. and found the grave of my greatgrandfather, Thomas Barron JR (1812-1880).

Bellinda, after going through my old notebooks, I found my note on Aquilla Pierce that I made 16 Feb 1980. You may know all this already, but it's as follows:



Aquilla Pierce m. Nancy Deloach, 3 Jan 1821, Jefferson Co., AL - from Pauline Gandrude, Marriage Records of Jefferson Co., Alabama, p 95.



Geo. & Eliz (Wilburn?) Pierce, both b c1775 in NC or SC. Children b 1799-1825: Aquilla, Riley, Mahala (Peden), Jas., Joseph, John, Charles, Minerva (Churchwell). All in Monroe Co., Miss.Terr., subsequently inc. as Jeff. Co., AL, by 1816 census. Peter [who's he?] to Kemper Co., MS; almost all moved to Rusk Co., TX c1847, in 1850 census of Rusk Co. - from query in Footprints, Feb. 1975.



That's what I've found so far. Seems like I thought there was more of a connection to Barrons that the above. Don't remember now. Hope it helps some.

I tried to visit your website, but was unable to make connection. I am not certain about George Barron being related to Nathan. I haven't found any solid facts. There is a George Barron listed on the 1850 AL census records who would be the right age to be Nathan's son. He lives close to Nathan. I am trying to track down Nathan's first wife and the mother of my gggrandmother. They were probably married in AL around 1835. Any help would be appreciated..

Went to Dahlonega today. Might have found something I was looking for. The following is from: August 6, 1880, Mountain Signal



We learn from a private letter that three deaths occurred in Dawson County last week. Isaac Barnes, aged ninety years, Mrs. Croy, aged eighty years, and Miss Nancy Matthews, aged fourteen.



Isaac Barron was born 1793, lived in Lumpkin but died and buried in Dawson. Could very possibly be him.

John,



My name is Carl McClung, from Tyler, Tx. I descend from the Josiah McClung family of Newberry, South Carolina. I've been doin' this for several years, and have not been able to tie the Navarro Co., McClung's to the Smith Co., McClung's. My greatgrand

father, Henry Josiah McClung, was born in Limestone Co. His father, Charles Davis McClung, 15th. Texas Infantry, C.S.A., moved there after the war. They eventually moved back here to Tyler. I've been to Cowan McClung's grave, lookin' for relatives, but came back with nothin'.



I am kin to the Barrons of Smith Co. Would like to know if you have found any relation between these families.



In Peace and Patriotism,



Carl W. McClung

Hi Carl and thanks for your message. I've never found a connection between my branch (Cowan McClung) who was from Blount Co., TN, and Josiah. The McClung Genealogy said Josiah may have been a brother of David McClung who was found in Franklin and Colbert Co., AL, and was a Presb. preacher.



There were at least three Barron lines in Smith Co.: "Capt" William of Georgia's line, Caleb's line, and James who was a son of Gabriel. To my knowledge I'm not related to any of them. However, Britton Barron who lived in adjacent Cherokee Co., may have been related. His brother William married Lavinia Martin in Lawrence Co., AL. They may have been parents of my g-grandfather, John W. Barron.



In 1860 Cowan McClung was a friend and neighbor in Johnson Co., TX, to John Martin, brother of Lavinia. They served together on the frontier patrol in the TST. Cowan's daughter married John W. Barron in 1875.



Wish I could help with your McClung line. I moderate two groups of on-line researchers who study the Barron and Lott families. I would be glad to add you to either list. Check my web page for details of our research.

Gale, I saw your message on the Genforum concerning Barnabas Barron. Next time you are there, type the name Barnabas in the window that says search this forum and you will see about a dozen messages or so about him. Several of them are mine. The Barnabas Barron of Jackson/Elbert Co., GA, was the son of Thomas Barron and Obedience Rodgers. This couple came from Edgecombe Co., NC.



Some think they are kin to the "Capt." William Barron line, but I have no evidence of this. I moderate a group of on-line researchers who study the southern Barrons and I invite you to join our group. You can see some of our results on my web page. Let me hear from you.

I saw your query on the Barron Genforum and was very much interested. For many years I have thought that John W. Barron, son of Charles, might be my g-grandfather of the same name who came to Navarro Co., Tx, in 1874. The age difference of about 5 years has always been a stumbling block, but only a small one. Recently, however, I have begun to shift my attention to another John, but am still interested in John W. and his family.



I moderate a group of on-line researchers who study the southern Barron family and invite you to join our group. We store some of our work on my web page which can be accessed by clicking on the following: John Barron's Home Page . There is also a paper on John W. Barron there that you might find of interest.



By the way, Charles Barron and Eliza Brown were married in Montgomery Co., AL, in 1840. He was probably the son of Alexander Barron (probably from MD) who received a land grant in 1836, but disappeared before the 1850 census. Charles Barron of Pike Co., AL, was from MD and received a grant on the same date at the same place as Alexander. They may have been sons of Jesse Barron of Prince Wm. Co., VA, and formerly from Charles Co., MD.

I am trying to complete what my mother spent many years doing and most of it is from letters and communication with relatives.



My understanding is that the family probably came from Tennessee before going to Alabama, but that could be wrong. Another says Kentucky. Anyway I will try to find what I can that might interest you. One fact if for sure if it would be any help is that the Barron's, Bailes, Miller's and Middleton's were all one family. Ellen Barron married Caleb Buckner Miller and Martha Ann Bailes married Jesse Rowan Middleton. They were first cousins. Caleb and Jesse were both my gg grandfathers, making Ellen and Martha my gg grandmothers.

John - Here goes



I don't know who Charles Barron's father was but he may have had a brother John B: abt 1818 and another Alexander B: abt 1813. I am just going thru my mothers papers and some are confusing to say the least.



Charles Barron:

Born: 1822 in Alabama

Married: November 22, 1840 in Montgomery County, Alabama

Born: 1822 in Alabama

Died: Abt. 1883 - Jackson, LA - Antioch Cemetery



Children:

Ellen Elizabeth Barron - Born: 1844 in Louisiana - Married Abt: 1861 to Caleb Buckner Miller.

Notes: l. Caleb middle name c/b Webster mother had both ways, but same person.

2. Ellen had been married before and had a son named James C. Barron who took the Miller name when Ellen married Caleb. James C. was called Dall and he settled in Wills Point, Texas. This could mean that Ellen had married a Barron previously and Barron was not her maiden name.

3. Ellen Barron - Jane Brown and Martha Ann Bailes were all first cousins.

4. No one knows where Ellen died are is buried. She stayed in Shreveport, LA while Caleb with to Texas to have cataracts removed and while there she died but the family could not find out where. She is supposed to be buried in the Masonic Section of Greenwood Cemetery but they have no record. During the Yellow fever epid. people were buried in Mass graves sometime and mother thinks that is what happened to her.

Emily F. Barron (I question this Emily F. because I believe her to be the same person listed as daughter of Charles.



Note: In a letter from his mother signed E.J. Barron he died at noon on a Wednesday, prior to May 29, 1916. In the letter his mother and husband Frank were so upset because they had no money to go to be with his family and to see him buried. Ellen speaks of Frank being down a Willies 5 miles away and that their hearts are broken and nearly died from hearing about Leon's death. She call Emily "Emmer" and also talks about Josy (Josephine) having such a hard time when here baby was born that she was in bed for months and could do nothing, that baby would have been Irma Nettles who married an Ingram.

I know this is probably a lot more that you wanted but when I get started I sometimes get carried away. It is like visiting with a long lost family.



Hope it has been of some help. I do have information on the extended family names such as Bailes, Millers, Middleton, and others.

As far as I know they were never in Union Co., MS, which was not even created until 1870. Henry was a son of John Barron who was a son of "Capt." William and Prudence.

John and Pat,



I found Charles Barron born 1862 in LA on your last e-mail. My Charles Wesley Barron was born 1862. He never told his children where he was born, but one Census list him as AL. He did name a son John Wesley, like the brother of your Charles Barron born 1862. Is it possible that these are the same. I have been looking for the parents of my Charles Wesley Barron for a very long time. This is the first time to find a Charles born 1862.



My Charles was said to have brothers named Wade and Wylie, but I have never found any proof of this. My Charles Wesley Barron settled in Rusk Co. TX where he married and raised his family. He is buried in Hickory Grove Cem. in Rusk Co. TX

Dear John:



Since I sent you my last back in 9/98 my whole theory of the origin of the Barrons of New Bern, NC, has been totally revised. Several months ago I received info from Ireland which convinced me that the original William was NOT he "whose male line is extinct" from Ireland as I had thought. The line from William, son of James Fitzgerald Barron of Burnchurch, did go extinct in the fifth generation when two sons of that generation died without issue. Only two daughters carried on that line. Also, none of that family left Ireland at the critical time (1698).



I am attaching a new write-up which you can compare with my previous to see the differences.

There are many in the group who share your line of "Capt" Wm. There is also considerable mis-information on them, however, and it is being revised now. I am in the process of preparing a paper from Leon Johnson, the leading researcher on this line, to put on my web page. In the mean time I will put you on the list so you will know when it is available.

In going thru my mothers papers for Martha I found 2 very interesting items and would to know what you think.



1.) Mother refers to Charles Barron B: 1822 in Alabama as Samuel Charles Barron.



She refers to the following as proof Alexander and Charles were related probably father, son and I believe Charles B: 1822 was a grandson of Alexander.



1830 Autanga County Alabama:



Alexander Barron

Male: U5 (1) 5-10 (1) 40-50 (1) Female: U5 (2) 40-50 (1)



Charles Barron

Male: U5 (1) 5-10 (3) 20-U 30 (1) 40-50 (1) Female: U5 (2) 20-30- (1)



Our Charles would have been 8 years old in 1830. Plus this was 10 years before Charles and Annie Elizabeth Brown married - which would make him 18 and tat was not too young for marriage then.



Alabama, Montgomery County, 1840



Alexander Barron

Male U5 (1) 5-10 (1) 10-15 (1) 15-20 (1) 30-40 (1) Female: 70-80 (1)



Alexander Barron

Male U5 (1) 10-15 (1) 20-30 (1) 40-50 (1) Then she has listed 15-20 (1) with a C under it.

Female 20-30 (1) She notes: 4 sons - 1 daughter - No wife



The final listing for proof she list the following:



Alexander and Charles: Land office records put them together - Military grant 1817-1853 Old Cahaba Land Office Both at Township 14 - Range 22.

This is greek to me sure hope it makes sense to you.

Thank you for the Barron data; it is most important. The land grants to Alexander and Charles was in 1836. This Charles was not the one who came to Louisiana, but was surely the Charles who was in Pike Co., AL, in 1850. I didn't have a listing for them on the 1830 census from Autauga Co. that you show and will have to look into that. That's the most exciting part to me.



There was an Alexander Barron in Lauderdale Co., AL, in 1820 who was from the group from York Co., SC, and originally from Maryland. I'll bet this is where our Alexander and Charles point back to.

I have been reading the messages regarding Charles Barron and nothing

seemed to connect to information that I have until you mentioned York

County, South Carolina. To make a long story short my cousin Virginia

Barron Mulherin married William Townsend Barron. We have always

wondered if our two lines of Barrons were connected. Mine an my

cousin's line comes from William Barron and Prudence Davis but her

husband comes from Archibald Barron and Elizabeth Ingram. Archibald was

born 1734 in Carrickfergus, County Atrim, Ireland and died May 17, 1817

in Rock Hill, York County, South Carolina. So far I have found no

connection between the two lines of Barrons. According to William T.

Barron some of his family left South Carolina and went to Alabama and

then on to Louisiana a few individuals went on to Texas. It would

appear that the line that you are working on is related directly to

William T. Barron's line. I have not done much work on this line and

have not verified the sources but I will attach and outline for you.

Hello Tony, We have the "Soles-Barron"book in our library. I'll be happy to do a "look-up" for you. I descend from this same line as follows:1. William Barron, wife Prudence Davis; 2. John Barron,Frances Garrard; 3. William Barron, Mary Ellis; 4. Andrew J. Barron, Sarah A. E. Stanton; 5. William Marion Barron, Sarah E. Hodges; 6. Hollis A. Barron, Dora Thornton Davinport; 7. Woodrow M. Barron, Ellen Creswell; 8. Barbara Barron Price. There is a cousin, Leon Johnson, who is taking the line back several more generations. One John Barron in Bryan was a judge, and my grandfather was Chief of Police here inWaco for many years. Judge Barron and my grandfather became good friends, and tried for years to connect their families. I hope they know we've done it. I'll be happy to help anyway I can. This Barron Circle will be a great help to you. I'm happy to meet another cousin.

Found a small note on the corner of a paper where mother had made a note that we had a relative born in LA but the name could have been LeBaron which would be French.



On this hunch I went into www.familysearch.org and found a Charles LE Baron born in N.O., LA and his first child was a Charles LeBaron born 2-2-1823 very close to our 1822. He had a sisters Margaret Ann, Josephine, Mary Ellen, and Julia Mechiella. His brothers were William Alexander, Joseph Murrell, Thomas McVoy, Richard Dec. and Alexander Dom. They were all born on dates that almost coincide with the dates we have for the Charles we are working with. These children were all born in Pensacola, Florida which might as well be Alabama there is only a state line separating them.



Is this too far fetched to make sense?

Very interesting, but the names of those brothers and sisters don't sound too French. As you might know, Mobile was a French colony until a few years before the Rev. War when England pushed them out. This family may have been from those early folks.



By the way, I checked Autauga Co., AL, 1830 census (every name, not just the index) but there was no Barron, Barrow, Barnes, etc. to be found. An Alexander Barron was in Montgomery Co. in 1830, but no Charles. Would you double check your mother's notes on this?

John do not know if a Tom D. Hudson has got in touch with you: He grow up around Union Parish and knows the location of Henry and Sarah Barrons graves. also said no head stones and had often hope the descendants could collect money and Place Makes on their Graves. Also said he had spent countless hours in courthouse at union Parish Coping records of every thing Henry Barron made there... he was in the flood in east NC. and barely escaped from losing everything. At the time Henry Barron died did not own any property.. No estate records for him he gave this children all his land before death. and supposed his other property.



I would be willing to send some money for this worth while project if any one else would ??? what do you think??

Checked Mom's records and she definitely has 1830 Autauga County, Alabama census listed. I know that this information came from the Shreve Memorial Library in Shreveport, Louisiana because that is where she did all her genealogy work. They have a very nice genealogy department. She list both Alexander and Charles and families as I listed previously. She has noted that our Charles is one of the children of Charles in the 5-10 year old Male group who would have been 8 years old in 1830.



She seem to think that the lineage ran as follows: Alexander - Charles - Charles -- ---etc.



I am coping exactly as she has noted other information:

I know this is long but thought the dates might help someone.



Mother keeps noting at different places that Alexander was a doctor and what makes me curious is that she always told us that Grandma Ellen Barron was a doctor one of the first women doctors. Could be she followed in her fathers footsteps. The only date I have for a Dr. Alex. Barron is a marriage to Sally Clieland January 1, 1773 in Charleston. I wish I was able to converse with those who have passed on this would be so easy.

Hi Pat, I'm afraid that she must have written down the wrong county, otherwise, I don't know what to make of the entry. I wish she had included the page number. However, the census is the same whether in Shreveport or Austin and I've look at a million of them in the last 20 years. It has to mean something, though, and I will keep checking.



The Charles Barron that she showed is surely the same one in Pike Co., AL, in 1860-70. I've never found him in 1850, but he's supposed to be there at that time too. He gave his birth as 1792 in Maryland. Charles named a son Hendley and Dr. Hendley Barron was a prominent man from Charles Co., MD, who died in Prince Wm. Co., VA. I think Charles and Alexander were brothers and like you say Alexander the father of Charles b 1822. Pauladene Edwards who used to be in the Barron Circle is his descendant. Her e-mail address went bad a few months ago, however.



Who is your mother? Maybe she and I have corresponded in the past. She sounds like a good researcher. It's possible that she was just trying to reconstruct the families of Alexander and Charles in 1830.

I am sure mother was trying to reconstruct the families and probably was not sure of any of this.



Her name was Lilly "Leola" Middleton Cooper of Shreveport, Louisiana. She was the daughter of Willis Henry Middleton and Sarah Anne Elizabeth Miller. Sarah Anne was the daughter of Caleb Miller and ELLEN BARRON.



I am going to write the ladies at the Shreve Memorial Library send them the information and see if they can identify the source for us. I am sure someone there remembers Mom because she spent almost every day there for years and has made contributions and to them.

John and Lucy--



Even though "Capt. William Barron" is not necessarily your Barron line, I wanted to forward to you a response I just now sent to a researcher who descends from Samuel Barron and wife Ann Brazil (presumably of Jones Co., GA). I'm not exactly sure who this Barron is.



Also, I'm attaching two files that contain Barron references in Wilkes Co., GA published deed and tax records. Regarding the deeds, those contain every Barron reference in the published book of abstracts. The tax records I entered are every Barron reference except for those pertaining to Thomas Barron (a prior resident of Edgecombe Co., NC) who lived in another part of Wilkes Co. (the part that became Lincoln Co.). I plan to analyze his entries in the near future.



As you know, I'm one of the doubters of the beheading story. Like you, John, I realize there is no proof that Prudence's husband was even named William or that he ever lived in GA. I am of the opinion, as I've mentioned before, that Tim Hudson and Mike Beck's research is right on target--that Prudence Davis and William Barron were both residents of Craven Co., NC (a William Barron the right age appears in records there). Also, I might add that in an email to Paul Timon (a descendant of Capt. William through son Samuel), Tim Hudson (who is not doing genealogy now) stated that John and Samuel Barron--sons of Capt. William--were both Revolutionary soldiers. He said that both men's obituaries (which neither Paul nor I have seen, but Tim has copies of--stored away) specifically make this statement. Further, one of the obituaries (Samuel's, I think) states that he served in NC. I would dearly love to actually see these obituaries.



Regarding "Capt. William Barron" being in GA and (what is often quoted to me) "documentation as to his Rev. service," I'm convinced that there was more than one William Barron in GA. For instance, I'm frequently told that William Barron was at one time in Burke Co. (he's the one who received a citation for his service in 1789; our Prudence was a widow by 1785) and that he received a land grant in Washington Co., GA.



However, on a trip to the GA Archives some years ago, I copied an interesting summary placed in the vertical files on the Barron name. Prepared by Robert and Lucy Colson of Huntsville, AL, the biographical sketch of William Barron, Sr. (b. ca. 1720; d. 1788) and his son William Barron, Jr. (1752 - 12 Oct 1836) states that William Sr. was b. in Ireland about 1720 and emigrated to Charleston, SC, before the Rev. War and served from SC. He was given a land grant in Washington Co., GA. He died in Augusta, Richmond County, GA, in 1788. He came to America from County Antrim, Northern Ireland. His son, William Barron Jr. married Sarah Susannah Brumette (b. 1769) in 1797 in Burke Co., GA (note: at the GA Archives, I have seen an abstract of the cemetery in Burke Co. where this family is buried). The sketch has much information on the Brumettes, including that fact that Sarah (Brumette) Barron lived to be 99 years old and is in the 1860 census of Burke Co. This couple's children were William Barron III (m. Becky Sharp), Henry Barron (never married), and Sara Ann Barron, b. 1810 (m. Ransome Lewis, d. 1886). The descendants of this latter couple are continued in a Lewis file there in Vertical Files.



I do think it likely that Capt. William Barron was a Rev. soldier, and that he even may have died in battle. However, I think it much more likely that he served out of a NC unit--as did at least two of his sons (see reference to obituaries above)--and possibly even his brothers (see forwarded message below).



Regarding these Barrons' NC origins, as I may have mentioned previously, the item that caught Mike Beck's attention initially was a biographical sketch that appears in Vol. 2 of "Memoirs of Georgia." This was a sketch of Dr. Samuel Barron, a prominent physician in Jones Co., GA, who is a proven grandson of Samuel Barron (son of Capt. William and Prudence Davis). In this 1890s sketch, Dr. Barron states that his great-grandfather (not named, but the generation would be Capt. William Barron) was a native of MD who came to VA. From there, his son Samuel went to NC and then to Jones Co., GA. We think that Dr. Barron was a generation off (i.e., that Capt. William was the one who was in NC). Also, I think it's significant that not one word of the beheading story was mentioned in this sketch.



Secondly, Mike Beck's research in the published records of Craven Co., NC show a guardian appointed for Prudence Davis, orphan of Moses Davis (there is also a Thomas Davis who left minor children). As I mentioned above, a William Barron (son of an older William Barron), also appears in Craven Co. records in this time frame (no connection appears though in these records).



My current project has been to analyze the records containing references to Prudence Barron and trying to determine who her close associates were--and where they were from. Two persons in particular seem to be good candidates for relatives: John Smith and James Willis.



James Willis, a man who owned much land in Wilkes and Franklin Counties, GA, was the co-executor (along with Prudence's son, Samuel Barron) of Prudence's estate. Also, Samuel Barron had a son who appears in Bible records (see way below) as "Willis Barron."



As for John Smith--he was a close neighbor of Prudence's in the tax records, and in some years is even shown to be next door to Jacob Garrard, Prudence's proven son-in-law. Also, of the *seven* John Smiths who appear in Wilkes Co. tax records during the late 1780s/1790s, the one--and only one--who appears as Prudence's neighbor is the wealthy one. Like James Willis, he owns extensive land holdings in Franklin and Wilkes Counties. (I'm planning to examine Franklin Co., GA, records for any Barron references.) In addition, John Smith, is mentioned in the following significant deed record:



[pp. 156] Prudence BARRON, late of Wilkes Co., decd., did by her last will & testament appoint James WILLIS & Samuel BARRON, exors. WILLIS & BARRON made a sale of the personal estate of Prudence BARRON & now about to make sale of the real estate. We the undersigned indemnify the exors. for the sale already made & about to be made, 19 Oct 1796. (signed) Samuel BARRON for Nancy BARRON, Jacob GARRARD, John (X) SMITH, Polley BARRON. Test: R. B. WASHINGTON, A. LIPHAM, J.P. Rec 17 Mar 1798.



It appears to me that John Smith is some type of legatee--perhaps a son-in-law.(??) Also, after Prudence's death, John Smith bought Prudence's land. In addition, Prudence Barron had a grandson (by son William Barron, my ancestor) named *Smith Barron.*



Regarding the Barron legend, two things I can with confidence refute:



1) Prudence Barron did not die in 1815. As Tim Hudson pointed out to me in 1991 (and is confirmed in the attachment below which has abstracts of Wilkes Co. deeds), Prudence actually died between July 6, 1796, and Oct 19, 1796 (she sold land to Samuel Barron on the July date and the above document referring to "Prudence Barron, deceased" was on the October date). Note: Prudence's will that is referred to in the deed records cannot be found in the courthouse.



2) Prudence Barron did not live in Warren Co., GA. She lived in Wilkes Co. continuously from (as early as) 1785 until her death in 1796. Although Warren Co. was formed in 1793 from parts of Columbia, Richmond, and Wilkes Counties, the part she lived in on Little River (just west of the town of Washington), has always--to the present--been part of Wilkes Co. (this from Frank Parker Hudson's published tax records of Wilkes Co.; he describes the history of each tax/militia district). However, it is my understanding the land where Prudence lived was near the Wilkes/Warren line.



One other thing--the legend states that the known children of Capt. William Barron were John, Samuel, William, and Mary Elizabeth (m. Jacob Garrard). However, the estate reference quoted above from the deed records mentions a Nancy Barron and a Polley Barron in addition to John Smith and Jacob Garrard. I interpret this as possibly meaning that Nancy Barron is a legal minor (since Samuel Barron is signing for her--unless perhaps she lived out of the area and he is acting as her agent) and that Polley Barron is an unmarried person of legal age (her name presents a conflict in that Polly is a nickname for Mary, and Jacob Garrard's wife is said to be Mary Elizabeth Garrard, although she went by Elizabeth--the Mary part is a conflict if both women are sisters to each other). It is somewhat puzzling that John and William Barron are not named in this record, but perhaps they weren't left land in Prudence's will and the others were.



John, the above is just for your information--I'm really not ready to post all of this to the Barron Circle yet. I've got to come up with a more summarized version. However, I am thinking about offering to send the two attachments below to anyone on the list who is interested in Prudence Davis Barron. Would that be appropriate?



Lucy, I included you on this post since you are a long-time Braswell researcher. I didn't know if anything on these GA Braswells/Brazils (see below) would look familiar or not. (Also, I saw on your webpage once where you research Hawkwood/Hagood. I am also a Haygood researcher--it is my maiden name. We'll have to discuss that line sometime.)



If either of you have any comments/insights on any of the above (or below), I would certainly welcome your input.

Donna, thanks; very impressive. I'll have to print this out to really understand all of it, but as usual I think you're right on the money. My only problem would be putting much emphasis on information from one of those old county history "mug" books. It does point us toward an area for further research.

Jane, Almeda Barron was the daughter of Thomas Hudson Barron who was an early Texas settler and Texas Ranger. She was not part Indian. Her mother was Elizabeth Carneal daughter of Patrick. Most of T.H. Barron's children and grandchildren went to the Oklahoma Terr. between 1880 and 1900.



On my web page is a file containing some of the descendants of T.H. Barron. You can access it as follows: John Barron's Home Page . I moderate a group of on-line researchers who study the souther Barron families. Many share your line and I invite you to join us.

John, it is difficult to measure how much you have contributed to *sooo* many. Again, thank you for your unselfish efforts.



I now have quite a lot of documented info on Solomon BARRON/Fannie COLE BARRON and their five children. It would have been an impossible task to seek and include all of the 34 living grandchildren and 42 living great grandchildren shown in Fannie's obit at the time of her death in Sept. 1925 Roby, TX area. What format shall I use to present this documented info before the Circle? Will a lengthy *E* be adequate? Perhaps an *E* might be helpful, if a descendant of Sol and Fannie visited your web page.



I was recently contacted by a young women, a descendant of Lula B. BARRON/H.M. GOODE. LBB was the oldest daughter of Sol and Fannie according to the 1870 Hamilton Co., TX census. Apparently the Goode family did not make the initial move to Roby, Fisher Co., TX in the mid 1880s. However, I have land records for later in the decade reflecting a deed made to GOODE-Roby courthouse land records.



John, I have studio pics of Sol and Fannie along with some current snapshots made when I last visited my Barron cousins in the Roby/Sweetwater area. Are you interested in adding more pics to your page or additions to your collection of BARRON data?



May I share with you how I dealt with my Mother's death just short of her 94th birthday? I continue to hold the thoughts that the loss of a parent is a natural sequence of life and cherish the nurturing and guidance they showered on us. I regret I did not learn about your father's death until recently, however, my mother insisted it is never too late to offer heartfelt sympathy, John.



Best, Betty Cole Wienke

Betty, thank you so much for the nice words. It's people like you that make it all worthwhile.



I believe that the best way to present family data is the modified register report. If you will look on my web page at the report entitled "Descendants of John Lott" you will see one of these. There is also an index to it which allows you to jump to any person in the chart by clicking on the link. Most genealogy programs such as The Master Genealogist (which I use), Family Tree Maker, Ultimate Family Tree, etc. will create these.



I'm not sure about many more photos. They take up a lot of server space and on AOL that begins to become a premium. I'll think about it. Perhaps I could store them on a different logon id space and link to them.



Have a nice holiday. We'll be doing a little traveling up the north Texas.

John-my sister just sent me an abstract of John Barron's will (History of Jones Co Ga page 955). It mentions "plad' cloak valued at $125. The story my sister has is that this cloak was Capt. William Barron's and was the only thing recovered when the sons went to Augusta to retrieve the body of Capt. William. Since John was the oldest son per my info, it is logical that if this is true, he would possess the cloak. To be valued at $125 in those days means it carried a lot of worth. Wonder if it was a cloak which traced back several generations. Have you heard this story?

I descend through Capt. William's daughter Mary Elizabeth and his grandaughter Mary Elizabeth (daughter of William, Jr.). My sister also sent me a typed copy of William Jr's family bible. In this, it says Polly born Monday 5th of September 1796. Mary Elizabeth was called Polly, so I presume this is her. This is supported by the listing of the first two Roquemore children of Mary Elizabeth and John Roquemore. However, I was in Mansfield GA a few years ago and copied the tombstone information of the many Roquemores buried there. On Mary Elizabeth's tombstone her birth date is given as July 10, 1792. Do you have any info which might throw light on this discrepancy?



I appreciate all your efforts regarding the Barrons. Merry Chistmas
