I am looking for information on the Barnes Family of Chester S.C, I have traced my family back to Robert Jackson Barnes Born in 1858 in Chester thru census reports But can not find anything past that.

Do they have profiles here on Wikitree already?
Michel Vorenhout The Only profiles I know of for sure are the ones That I am working on from my Fathers family In Rock Hill S.C and going back to his Great Grandfather In Chester S.C who is Robert Jackson Barnes

This is the only one I could find born in South Carolina.

This Robert Barnes (born mid-1820s in SC) married to Julia Barnes and with son Robert Barnes (born late 1850s) is also in the 1870 census. And there is a death certificate of their son John M. Barnes (born 1861, died 1929) stating that the elder Robert was also a Robert Jackson Barnes, born in Chester Co., and that Julia's maiden name was Davis.
That may be him, thanks
And in 1880 census he is listed as R Dorsey Barnes (transcribed by ancestry as K Dorcy Barnes), married to Julia (of the right age).

Could this be a transcription error? Barnes instead of Bannon?

Rebeckah Parrish

 in the South Carolina, Death Records, 1821-1968

Name: Rebeckah Parrish
Maiden Name: Bannon
Gender: Female
Death Registration Place : South Carolina, USA
Spouse: Marion Parrish

Wills and Probates: Search for Rebeckah Parrish in South Carolina Wills & Probates collection
Yes, in the image that definitely looks more like Barnes than Bannon.
C-H does the Robert Barnes you mentioned being born in the mid 20's have a profile by chance?
No, he does not have a profile yet, either here at Wikitree or at familysearch.org (the Robert Barnes born 1825 in SC who is profile Barnes-462 is a different one, that one had moved to Alabama by 1850).

The data we have for him is the 1850 census cited above by Betty (living with his presumed sister Rebecca, who had married Leroy/Marion Parish), the 1860 census cited above by Betty (married to Julia, son Robert Barnes age 1, who is presumably your Robert Jackson Barnes), the 1870 census (married to Julia, with son Robert I. and several other children), and the 1880 census (listed as R. Dorsey or Dorcy Barnes, still married to Julia), as well as the 1929 death certificate of son John Barnes (listing Julia's maiden name as Davis). All records from Chester County, SC.

The 1840 census record cited above by Betty (together with the middle name recorded in 1880) suggests he may have been a son of the Dorsey Barnes who was in his 40s and a slave-owning farmer in Chester County. To confirm this we would probably need either probate and/or land records.
Ok got it and thanks a lot, gives me a point to start with

I'm 27 degrees from Robert Jackson Barnes, but did not find any cousin relationship over 30 generations.

Thanks Frank, I am thinking they migrated to chester S.C from North Carolina Just not sure if the Robeson County N.C Barnes's are connected to the Chester County S.C Family. It would make since but I can not find any information on Roberts Parents except for the ones listed on find a Grave but that Information is incorrect
Robert Barnes served in the Confederate Army in the 8th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry.

I found a connection to Donnie Blackstone's father which is closer to Robert Barnes than I am. Donnie is in South Carolina and might be a good resource person on finding Robert Barnes parents. It would certainly be a good thing to find parents, grandparents and so on.
