FORMATION

BARRS / BELL

NOTE:

Dobbs & Duplin County, North Carolina, USA

Lenoir, Duplin and other NC Counties were neighboring counties in North Carolina and were formed from Dobbs County, NC. Dobbs County was formed 1758 from Johnson County, NC.

The Barrs & Bell families made parallel moves, lived in the same and adjoining US counties, and were perhaps, and I stress perhaps as a speculative "maybe," farmers in South Central England and were definitely farmers in North Carolina, Georgia and Florida from the mid 1600's to 1900's, thereby cross-validating family history connections of my ancestral line of Barrs and Bell families. The families may, and again I stress "may," have known each other in England during the1600's to the 1700's. The Bell family appears to have immigrated to "The Colonies" in America first.

NOTE: Ref. Florida Atlas University Press of Florida by E. A. Dernald and E. D. Purdum 1992, page 90. The resident address, Lowndes County, FLthat James C. Barrs, recorded on the U.S. Homestead Land Patent on February 1, 1861 may have been the result of a state boundary dispute between Florida and Georgia State Governments. The Nankin District, Brooks County, GA, where “our” James C. Barrs lived, was within the disputed boundary area, which was about a section wide. Brooks Co., GA was created from Lowndes County, GA in 1858. But and if James C.

One young CSA veteran, Samuel Lewis Moore, wrote a vivid account of the events that has since become a part of Jefferson County, FL history records.

1865

Jefferson

Civil War history related by a young CSA veteran in Jefferson County, FL and his acquaintance with “Jim” James C. Barrs.

“History of Jefferson County, Florida Excerpt pages 79-80 The following story is the account of the personal experience of a living Confederate CSA war veteran, Samuel Lewis Moore. Samual Moore's home at the time was in Quitman, Brooks County, Georgia. He moved to Monticello, Jefferson County, Florida after The Civil War and married Julia Bradley. Samuel Moore was 18 years old when he wrote the following personal account of his military experience. At the young age of 15 years Samuel Moore followed his brother, Spencer Moore, and enlisted in the army of the South in Savannah, GA. Samuel was sent to White Marsh Island, GA six miles below Savannah, GA. Their duty was to see that no Federal or Union boats came up the river. Young Samuel Moore wrote; “During the last two years of the war the Southern Army was largely composed of untrained boys like me and the officers recognized our mistakes and shortcomings, as a result of our youth and lack of military training, and justice was tempered with mercy. Major Patton Anderson knew that (General) Sherman was marching towards Savannah, so he called in two companies of my Regiment from White Marsh Island as re-enforcements for Fort McAllister, twenty-five miles from Savannah, on the Ogeechee River and six miles below the railroad bridge. Sherman had to capture the bridge up the river before he could get to us.

Cont.

 

 

There was nothing but a marsh between us and the bridge, and we boys stood on the battery walls and saw the fight, which lasted about an hour. We knew that our time would come the next day, and the necessary preparations were made to give Mr. Sherman as warm a reception as we could. The roll was called the next morning and 155 men answered for duty. About 10 o'clock in the morning the enemy entered the woods and begun to form in line of battle. We could see the Yankees behind the big trees near the little dairy (McAllister Dairy) and the dairy itself was as full of them as it could hold. Our sharpshooters would take a crack at every “Blue Coat” that exposed himself. One of the boys asked permission to put a cannon ball through the dairy, which was granted, and a thirty-pound rifle shot was sent through the center. Then business picked up!” “At 4 P.M. the bugle of the enemy sounded for the charge and it took them exactly four minutes to capture the fort, as we had only 155 men and they numbered 9,000. Our casualties were 55 killed and 60 wounded. The enemy's loss was 200 killed and 250 wounded. The last shot fired was a 12-pound Howitzer cannon. The man who was to fire the cannon had hold of the lanyard and was ordered to let it go by a Yankee officer, before the white flag was raised. The man replied, 'I'm not taking orders from you yet.'

The officer shot him with his pistol and the weight of the body, when he fell, pulled the lanyard. Some of the enemy was not three feet from the mouth of the cannon and the ball opened a space through the crowd. We killed more men than the number on our side at this battle. General Sherman made the McAllister homestead his headquarters and the wounded from both sides were taken there for medical treatment. I was on the sick list and was placed on a bunk with a badly wounded Yankee boy who died before morning. I told the nurse the boy was dead and he said 'Alright I will take him out directly.' I guess he forgot it for the body was still there when I awoke the next morning. The nurse came and said he was sorry he had not removed it. I told him that was alright, it had not disturbed me at all. We, the prisoners, were carried to Hilton Head, South Carolina. All of the prisoners were issued what was called 'Retaliation rations,' which consisted of one part of rotten meat and a pickle per day. They were retaliation for Andersonville (Infamous CSA Prison in west Georgia).” So we were carried back to Fort Delaware, a downcast, disappointed lot of boys. A great deal could be told of prison life, how much I did not gain in weight, on six crackers a day and an occasional rat stew. At one time the prison was guarded by a regiment of United States Regulars, who had been badly cut-up in a battle in Virginia. They were kind to the Southern prisoners and the officers in charge of the Fort decided the Regulars were too good to us, so removed them, putting a Negro regiment in their place.

I was at Fort Delaware when Lincoln was assassinated after which the prisoners were treated worse than usual. The Negro guards would kick and cuff them for the slightest causes. On July 18, 1865, I took the amnesty oath and was sent, with 500 other prisoners of war, to New York to be transported South.” “We went by way of Philadelphia and were marched up into the city and halted by an open square and children were sent among us with baskets of sandwiches and pitchers of lemonade. One beautiful girl sat at a window and dispensed lemonade and it was lucky for me when the supply gave out, for I was near the breaking point. It was like a change from purgatory to the Seventh Heaven. I was ashamed of my personal appearance, but I was not ashamed of the cause that put me there. Finally, we reached New York and while eating at Castle Garden, awaiting orders, I sold the cotton that was between my quilted blankets, and my woolen socks to an Irish woman for $1.50. This dollar was the first green back I saw and I felt rich. After a few weeks in New York, I was sent South. We had some bad times on the boat, for five hundred men were crowded into the hold of the boat, with 'built-in-bunks.' Something got the matter with the drinking water and they had to condense the water for the passengers. We were given one pint of hot water per day. There were no U.D.C. nor Red Cross chapters to look out for the boys in those days, and they had to look out for themselves.

My shoes were lost over board, but I did not feel the loss of them until I reached Jacksonville, FL and had to walk twelve miles, barefooted, where the railroad bridge was torn up. The train took us up, finally, and when we got to Madison, FL, I had to walk sixteen miles with Mr. Jim Barrs (James C. Barrs) to his home where I spent the night. Mr. Barrs was very kind to me and sent me to Quitman, GA, my home, next day with his boy on a mule.” “When I reached home, my mother did not know me and I was indeed a sad looking spectacle. I had on a blue United States Military shirt, a pair of pants 44 inches in the waist, buttoned around to the suspender button. One leg of my pants was torn off halfway to the knee, and the other leg rolled up to match it. I had on a Confederate gray cap, the visor was torn off. I was barefooted and my hair was down to my shoulders. My appearance did not dampen the joy of my mother and the home folks, however, when they finally realized I was home at last. I guess Sherman made a good, off-hand shot at it, when he made his statement about war, but he had never been hungry, nor thirsty, nor in prison or then he would have said 'War is hell' and then some.”

In the late 1800's (about1870 to 1884) a town named Barrsville existed 15 miles from Lake City and 8 miles from the Santa Fe River on the old wire road. Today historians believe Barrsville is now called Ellisville, which is about 20 miles south of Live Oak at the intersection of I-75 and US 441/SR41. In reality the Barrsville site is west of present day Ellisville, FL.

FOOT NOTE:

1745

Rowan

Rowan County, NC located about 150 miles west of Dobbs-Lenoir & Duplin Counties, NC and was a well-known farming area in America by the turn of the 1700th century.

To clear-up confusion about the Barrs and Barr families who lived in North Carolina during the 1700's. Ref. Excerpts from “A Colonial History of Rowan County, North Carolina” By 1745 Scotch-Irish immigrants had established themselves in the fertile and well-watered farming area between the Yadkin and Catawba Rivers in Rowan County, NC. Among them were the “Barrs” and "Bell” “families along with many other Scotch-Irish families. “The Scotch-Irish were known for their religious, bravery and were liberty loving people.” From this history of Rowan County, NC we do not know if the referenced family surname was actually “Barrs” or plural for “Barr”, meaning more than one family had settled in the Rowan County area. Since Scotch-Irish families are particularly mentioned it is probable that these families were the Barr and Bell families with Scottish roots instead of English. Also, Reference the 1790 Rowan County, NC Federal Census where only Barr and Bell families are enumerated: A Hugh, John, and a Patrick Barr appears, each with a family. In 1850 there is still a Barr family listed on the Census of Rowan Co., NC. There are also Bell families listed on the 1790 and 1850 Census Report. Also, there was a John Barr, Jim Barr and Richard Barr who was deeded 21 separate parcels of property in Washington County, Virginia from 1782 through 1784. This was probably the “John Barr” in the 1790 Rowan County, NC Census Report.

1745

Rowan

Rowan County, NC

Continued Research of England records has validated that the surname BARRS has its roots in England rather than Scotland or Ireland. We see the surname Barr in Ireland and Scotland a great deal, but generally Barrs appears consistently in numbers within England. Barrs is a surname in use in England by families even today whom we have had occasion to communicate (Amy Barrs). This being the case, the Barr families in Rowan County, NC was probably related to the Barr families of Virginia and not the “BARRS” family of Dobbs-Lenoir Counties North Carolina. The John Barrs' (Senior and Junior) who shows up in Dobbs and Lenoir Counties, NC in the mid to early 1700's could have migrated there from Virginia or England. Records in Warwick, Warwickshire, England indicate an Abraham Barrs who had a son named John Barrs who was born in 1727 in Dunchurch, Warwick, England. This Abraham Barrs may have been the last generation of our Barrs line to have been born and died in the “old” country of Warwickshire, England. The Barrs in Dobbs and later Lenoir County, NC would have probably been acquainted with the Bell family of Dobbs, later Lenoir, and Duplin Counties, NC. Possibly the families knew each other in England before immigrating to America. All these NC counties were intermixed and adjoining during the 1700's. The BELL family probably came to North Carolina from either Virginia, or directly from England.

1600's

England

Leicester, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Cambridge, Stafford, and Huntingdon, England all have Barrs candidates for the first of “our” Barrs line to arrive in America.

Continued: The Barrs and Bell families may have came to “The Colonies” together from England or at least they probably knew each other in North Carolina and perhaps even in England. Both families were farmers as far back in history as can be determined. The Barrs in England had been farmers in Leicester, Warwickshire and Worcestershire, England since at least the early 1500's. Leicestershire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire are in the south-central farming area of England and are in near proximity to each other. The Barrs first names of Michael, John Abraham, James, Richard, George, Leonard, Dempsey, Nathaniel, Thomas, William, etc. are common Christian or "fore" names we see handed down from our Barrs line generation after generation as far as we have records beginning in the early 1500's. Evidence exists that indicates the surname BARRS was and still is spelled BARRE in Belgium and France. There is evidence that the BARRE surname first surfaced in the area of Normandy, Belgium before expanding into France proper. Evidence exists that the reference of Barre was to those who guarded or protected the gate to the city. There are many Barre in Belgium and France and a town named Barre, with several towns having the name Barre in the hyphenated town name. Wilkes - Barre, PA in the USA is an example of direct migration of Barre from Europe.

1600's

England

Leicester, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Cambridge, Stafford, and Huntingdon, England all have Barrs candidates for the first of “our” Barrs line to arrive in America.

There are many Barre who immigrated to American directly from Europe and still use the surname Barre. The first Barre may have traveled to England in 1068 with William The Conquer and may have fought in The Battle of Hastings when Normandy attacked England. The Normans won The Battle of Hastings and never left England. Some Barre ended up in Ireland and became O'Barrs and others ended up in Scotland and became Barr. They would have begun answering to the English translated surname of BARRES and later BARRS in the 14th century and well before traveling further south to the fertile farming areas of south central England. Their move could have been forced by poor weather conditions In Ireland that would have made their crops fail. They would have also left the southern England farming area to voyage to “The Colonies” in the later 1600's or early 1700's because there was nowhere further south to go in England. We are currently researching immigration ships passenger lists of embankment from England to America to determine when and where they arrived in “the Colonies” of America and which other families may have arrived with the Barrs...

Verification of this particular, my, line of BARRS is the evidence that my BARRS and BELL families essentially are known to have lived in the same and/or adjoining North Carolina counties since the early 1700's and may have know each other earlier in England. The Barrs and Bell families are known to have moved from North Carolina to Georgia and to Florida at roughly the same time and in a similar manner, having stopped off in various farming areas to test the fertility of the land and suitability of the climate. Both the Barrs and Bell families were successful farmers. Only in later generations did the Barrs go into other (commerce) businesses, such as James C. Barrs' General Store in Barrsville FL, Isaac Newton Barrs' building a General Store in 1904 in Day, Lafayette County, FL and owning a pioneer hotel called “The Day House,” and Oscar Marion Barrs, Isaac Newton Barrs' son building a General Store and Livery Stable in 1907 in Day, Lafayette County, FL.

Barrsville is prominent in and old 1877 area map. Barrsville was located near or at the same location as was Ellisville, FL of 1845, but west of present day Ellisville at Interstate 75 twenty some miles south of Lake City, FL today. Barrsville, Florida suffered the same fate, as did the nearby town of Leno, FL and other fledgling towns along what was to have been a new rail line. The railroad line by passing these little settlements and was discontinued. This sealed the fate of these pioneer rail line settlements.
