Adam Barner was born abt 1740 in Bern, Switzerland [1] [2]

Adam Emigrated to the United States from Bern Switzerland to the United States most likely to the Port of Philidelphia or New York City in 1758. [1].

He was first found in records in the Robeson tax records for the year 1764. As a single Freeman at least 21 years old[1].

He married Maria Euphronica Conrad about 1766 in Robeson Township, Berks County, Penssylvania [1]. [3]

In 1772 he obtained a warrant and survey from the Proprietors which were heirs of William Penn. This got him 100 acres in Buck's County, Pennsylvania which he sold back in 1773. [1].

Adam passed away about 1818 in Liverpool, Perry, Pennsylvania [5][1]. [6]
