Hugh at 67 in 2015 was late in coming to genealogy but not to research. It is now a passion that in 2017, lead to the creation of the Barnes-Oxford Genealogy Research Foundation, Inc. The foundation is a 501(c) corporation. The Foundation maintains a genealogy and history website

In order to improve the ability for articles on the website to get found in a Google search, Hugh has become skilled in Search Engine Optimization (SEO). He now teaches it at a nearby community college and has a consultancy. The website's articles occasionally appear ahead of, Wikitree and Find A Grave.

Genealogy has become an obsession as was now his abandoned interested in Republican Party politics. Hugh was a member of what was known as the Old Guard. It is exemplified by his great grandfather a Wilkes County North Carolina Baptist minister who donated a horse to the Union Army [Barnes-7607]. He is working on an e-Book on the Old Guard and will populate Wikitree with many of its former leaders.

The greatest person who influenced Hugh's life and instilled a strong sense of family values was his maternal grandfather Hugh Blair Oxford [Oxford-194]. Without Papaw, he would not have been the first person on either side of his family to attend college. He is a 1970 graduate of Appalachian State University. Following in Papaw's footsteps, Hugh is a newly elected Baptist Deacon.

Wikitree and DNA cousins have opened many doors for Hugh. The website in addition to genealogy will become a prime source for the history of the NC Foothills. The index to Lenoir Family Papers a collection dating from 1770-1940 will be exclusively available there. The papers cover details in the life of General William O. Lenoir a major player at the Battle of King Mountain and many of his descendants. General Lenoir was a Whig and refused three-time to run as their candidate for Governor. Hugh's early Barnes's were planters and Jeffersonian-Democrats.

He has discovered a new collection of source documents dating back to the late 1700’s that will be scanned and placed on the website. They are available nowhere and are of significant historical value.

Hugh is honored to be one of several Profile Managers for both his Barnes [Barnes-1145] and Oxford [Oxford-205] immigrants which are both Protected Profiles. Although low in rank, he is also proud that his Barnes grandfathers Brinsley and Solomon and Brinsley sons account for 7 Revolutionary War Patriots. When Brinsley's son-in-law’s are taken into account, that increases Revolutionary War Patriots to 9.

Hugh teaches genealogy at two nearby community colleges. He is uncompromising in his desire for through sourcing and two Smith members of Wikitree Ellen [Smith-62120] and Jillaine [Smith-32867] along with Vincent Piazza [Piazza-75] and Robin Lee [Lee-5956] set the standard that he hopes to follow.

My paternal immigrant was 63 when the War broke out but provided material service and is recognized by the DAR. He had 5 sons all were member of the Chatham County, NC militia. My 4th great grandfather resigned from the militia and enlisted in Kingbury's artillery unit, the only independent artillery unit in the Continental Army. As a gunner, he fought at Valley Forge and Monmouth Courthouse and earned the nickname "Deaf John". I am a member of the SAR on the reord of my maternal 3rd gf
See explaination under 1776
Keeping up
I am a Baptist Deacon
My paternal line is Barnes. Born in 1713, my immigrant Brinsley arrived in PA from Ireland circa 1734. He, his spouse and all 8 of their children migrated to Orange Co., NC circa 1753. As a Regulator, he protested against the Royal Governor. Fearing Tory oppression, he and four sons migrated to Indian Territory (Wilkes County, NC) which was outside of government control. (See North Carolina tag to trace family migration.) Most stayed in Wilkes some migrated to Kentucky, Indiana an Missouri.

I like to keep with innovation
My paternal 5th great grandmother was a Lindley
This is my mothers direct maternal line. My Grandmother said that Milstead's came on the Mayflower BUT there are none on the passenger list.
My Barnes Irish immigrant with his family of eight children settled Orange Co. in 1753. As Regulators they protested against taxes imposed by the Royal Governor. Fearing reprisal they migrated to Indian Territory (Wilkes/Burke County) circa 1784.
My maternal line is Oxford. We descend from Wendy Oxford a Captain in the Royal Army of English King Charles I. Wendy was persecute by Parliament when Cromwell became Prime Minister. He was placed in stocks. Fearing that harm would come to his 13 year old son John, Wendy indentured John on a VA tobacco plantation. John's grandson Samuel, Jr. migrated along with his father to NC where he served as a Revolutionary War.
My 5th paternal grandmother was a Quaker [Lindley-113]. She is proof that we are all sinners. Meeting House minutes confirm that in 1753, she was disowned for "Drinking Hard Liquor".
My 3rd great grandfather Samuel Oxford was a Revolution War Patriot and I am member on his record

Hi Hugh,

It's nice to 'meet' you. I am slowly adding profiles to WikiTree, just haven't gotten to the Barnses yet. I will prioritize the line now. :) I think it is that Brinsley's line, yes, but the furthest back I can get with solid evidence is Brinsley Barnes m. Nelly Goble d. abt 1849. So many Brinsleys. I will join your list and keep you updated on my findings.

Thank you, Hugh, for your condolences. I saw your msg on FB, and appreciate it.

So, let me be sure I understand correctly: the 2 Hugh Barnes are DNA connections to you? Are they related to the Brinsley Barnes line, then? I just saw the profile for Barnes-15343 a bit ago, was amazed that someone has broken Margaret's wall! Also sad because that is in my mother's paternal line, and I can't tell her. Barnes-12769 is also my mother's line, but on her mother's side. We've known about him for years, that family was good about keeping records and passing them on. I'd played with the idea of "what if" my Hugh (b. 1773) was related to my husband's Brinsley family, but didn't really think because Barnes is a fairly common name. But you never know.....

I've just opened the BORG Research Foundation and I'll have a look at it in bits over the evening and following days. You can never have too many sources and resources in history or genealogy.

Would I like to be added to Anne or Stephen Hobson's Trusted List? Yes, absolutely. Can't say I'll work on them today but they're on the radar.

Hugh; Thank you for the comment posted on my profile regarding James Barnes (1838). He is indeed my 2nd GGF. However his father is not Deaf John Barnes. I think you missed a couple of generations.

Hello Hugh,

I got busy with life with three daughters in my house, and I haven't logged onto WikiTree in about a year...however I logged on today and saw a message from you from February of last year. It turns out we are related - I do have Brinsley Barnes in my family tree. My great uncle has done a lot of genealogy research, and I have a copy of it in PDF form with all the info he has.

Anyway - I think it is very neat that we are related.

Hi Hugh,

Yes, there is already a Barnes Name Study. Since there were so many profiles listed on the category page, it got lost in the list. You can also find it in the second list of one name studies on the main ONS index page on the second list for space pages. Since you created another one, you will want to work with Alvin Barnes and merge the two space pages together using the form found here. Let me know if you have any other questions and I will be happy to answer them! ;-)

G2G is a fabulous forum for collaboration of all types! You don't need my consent but of course you can conduct all of your communication on G2G.

Others may choose to communicate another way. In that case I suggest you invite them to join your thread. Most wil.

I want to be clear though and point out that neither one of us can require that others only use your G2G. If someone chooses to post on the profile or send a private message or an email, it is in keeping with our honor code that we respond.

My own advice, and it is only advice, is to pursue your planned way to communicate, which has many advantages, but remain flexible when needed. I am sure you would and it goes without saying.

Hi Hugh,

Thanks for your message. Honestly I've never tracked down the Barnes limbs of our tree and should probably spend more time pursuing maternal lines as well. the Moore's as well go back to Ireland (1675) with Andrew and his son captain William later married into the Penescobt (Maine) and Cherokee (South Carolina) tribes. It's apparently true what they say about sailors having a girl in every port.

Even my paternal grandmother, who comes from the Connor / Barnes union, were originally O'Connors upon arrival from Ireland.

I have lots of info to transfer from ancestry back to the wiki. I'll let you know when I find out Moore.

Hi Hugh, thanks for the offer of a potential lead. This individual was probably part of a GEDCOM import a few years ago and I have no idea how she may tie in to my family. Newton County is east of Atlanta, and my family is from east Georgia, Toombs, Montgomery, Tattnall, Candler, Bulloch and Emanuel counties, mostly. I just check on Familysearch every once in a while to see if I can find a Mary Barnes that is somehow associated with Moseley, Williamson, Collins, Brantley, Cowart or any of the other surnames connected with my family.

I'm sorry I didn't leave you a note about your G2G post. I caught it on the fly and then never got back to leave you an explanation.

It's because you were essentially "advertising" a product -- i.e., asking for a fee for documents. The Terms of Service prohibit this in a couple of different sections (3 & 4). You can see it here:

Hugh, Thanks for the message. Trying to learn my way around Wiki. Appreciate your contact. Interested in your having a McGee in the tree. I also have similar , but spelling is McGie. Again am just beginning with this site but format is very interesting. I have done much more and am more familiar with so this is pretty challenging . Will keep in touch. Dennis

Hi Hugh

Thank you for the message. I don't have the authority to deal with unresponsive profile managers. I believe the Wiki staff handles that.

Please see my comment on Elizabeth Barnes page:

I have autosomal DNA matches with some descendants of Lindley-551, and I am a direct descendant of James Lindley (Lindley-48). Perhaps Lindley-113 is also a daughter and 551 was Sarah Elizabeth, and the birth dates have gotten confused, but 551 must be the daughter of James.

If you ar thinking of uploading a GEDCOM. Here's a link to a great step-by-step of the process including screenshots that you might find helpful.

The help pages give lots of information about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.
