Barnes and Niblack Family
Posted by: Barbara Froyland (ID *****4610) Date: July 31, 2008 at 12:58:16

My name is Barbara Bretthauer Marquez Froyland.

My Barnes Family connection follows:

Clifford H. Bretthauer m. Rose Elizabeth Bryan (my mother), daughter of
John Nathan Bryan and Elberta O'Berry, daughter of
James Franklin O'Berry and Elizabeth Waller Barnes, Florida, daughter of
Laura Kate Niblack and James Alpheus Barnes, Florida, son of
Elizabeth Jane ?? and Benjamin Barnes (born 1804/5), Darlington, SC, son of
Unknown and Jesse (Jr?) Barnes (b. abt 1765) NC, son of
Orpha Fort and Jesse (Sr?)Barnes (b. abt 1738 Edgecombe County NC)

I have documentation on this line back through the Florida Barnes families, but would very much appreciate information about Benjamin Barnes' father Jesse and back. I inherited many old Barnes (and Bryan) photos and correspondence between Elizabeth Waller Barnes and her sister and niece - from the 1920s and 1930s. Elizabeth Waller Barnes O'Berry (d. 1946)also had an interest in genealogy...she left handwritten lists of Barnes' family births, marriages and deaths of her parents, siblings and children.

Thank you for any information you will share regarding this Barnes' family.
