I want to know if she really did die in the 1850's or did she remarry after Richard died and change her last name ???
Does anyone have Info on where she is buried or where did she go after the 1850 census ?
What county did she come from prior to Haywood County NC before 1830 ?
Mariah Barnes was born 1802 to Joseph Barnes. It is assumed that she was born somewhere in North Carolina prior to coming to Haywood County NC in 1830.
In January of 1831 The State Vs . Mariah Barnes - Mariah Barnes had Bastardy Bond charges against her for giving birth to two bastard children and was held chargeable to the county and fined. She does not Name the Father in the Bonds. It is thought that my GGG Grandfather Henry Barnes was one of the children on the bastardy bonds.
She Married Richard Price on Dec 1st 1834 at Haywood County NC. Her father Joseph Barnes is listed on the marriage certificate. She had 3 additional children with Richard Price Elizabeth (1835) John (1837) Sarah ( 1841)
She is found in 1830 Census in Father's ( Joseph Barnes)Household at Haywood County NC
She found in 1840 Census in Husband Richard Price's Household at Haywood County NC
She is found in the 1850 Census living with her husband Richard who is 85 years old in 1850 and they are living next door to Henry Barnes in Haywood County NC.
It is assumed that Richard Price died in the 1850's since he was already 85 yr old in 1850.
