Rev. I. A. BARNES, D.D. writes:

JACOB BARNES, sixth son of William Barnes, married Mrs. Hannah Hull, whose maiden name was Lambert, in 1802. The Lamberts are Scotch. Mr. and Mrs. Barnes settled on Teverbaugh creek, but in a few years they moved to a farm at the head of Pleasant Valley, adjoining the farm of Jordan Hall. This farm is now known as the John B. Miller farm. The village of Millersville is located on this farm. After living on the Pleasant Valley farm for about forty years, he removed to the old Shinn farm between the village of Shinnston and Maulsby's Ford on the West Fork River. He died at this place on the 16th day of April, 1852, aged 73 years, 10 months, 13 days.

The family of Jacob and Hannah Barnes consisted of eight sons and six daughters, all of whom grew to manhood and womanhood, none dying under 33 years of age, and one living to the age of 90. All of these children made public profession of faith in Christ, as a personal Savior, before they were 15 years old, and none of them ever used alcohol as a beverage, or tobacco in any form.

Jacob Barnes was a devout member of the M. E. Church, and family worship was maintained in his home night and morning, for more than fifty years. His home was always open to all ministers of the Gospel, and his hospitality was unrestricted. Among his guests have been some of the older Bishops of the Methodist Church. 9

Hanna Lambert married Jacob BARNES, but he was at least her second husband.
