Is anyone familiar with Milton B. Barnes who married Sarah Elizabeth McKelvy in 1879 in Gibson county Tennessee?
In the 1880 Gibson county Tennessee census their household includes the following:
Jack T.
John C. McKelroy....Father-in-Law
Francis L. McKelroy....son
Cora McKelroy....Daughter
John H. McKelroy...son
I believe that the name McKelroy is incorrect and it should be McKelvy since the Gibson county marriage records lists Sarah Elizabeth McKelvy as marrying M. B. Barnes in 1879.
I also believe the Cora McKelroy (McKelvy) is one of my great great grandmothers that I have been trying to locate.
If anyone recognizes any of these names, then please e-mail me at
