I'm seeking information about Obadiah Barnes, who supposedly was half Indian (possibly Creek) and half Scottish. Obadiah Barnes lived in Alabama, was born sometime around 1780 and died in 1839, presumably after being poisoned.
He married a Tennant daughter (don't know her first name). However, she died leaving him with several small children. After her death, Obadiah talked his sister-in-law on the Tennant plantation into letting him have one of their slaves. Her name was Rebecca.
Acoording to one account Obadiah and Rebecaa fell in love, and had four children. All of them were born in Alabama, where Obadiah eventualy settled in Greene County.
Is there anyone out there who can provide additional information about Obadiah Barnes?
