The Carras Barnes living with her mother in 1860 census Lauderdale Co is Carras Given{s} who married Stephen G. Barnes in Lauderdale Co TN. We believe this 6 year old child John C. Barnes is her son by Stephen G. Barnes.
Heaven knows where Stephen G. Barnes is, his only sister Nancy Barnes Tindall and his parents John C and Susanna Barnes by 1860 census are in Johnson Co TX.
The last time I found Stephen G. Barnes was when he was elected a Constable in 1852 in Lauderdale Co Tn.
The other strange thing is in Clay Co TX census 1880 is Stephen G. Barnes sister, Nancy Barnes Tindall with a 6 year old nephew named J.C. Barnes b in AR with his mother b in AR and father born in TN.
I have no idea if Stephen G. Barnes and Carras Given were divorced and he went to AR and had another wife and had this other son in 1875. He could have walked off and left Carras as I know not what became of her.
I imagine the other Carra Given was named for her aunt.
Big mystery as of yet unsolved.
