It is believed that Henry Harvey Barnes is an son of Daniel P. Monroe and Mariah Barnes based on the Bastardy Bond and the Y-Dna test.

There was an bastardy bond hearing that took place on January 4th of 1831 in Haywood County NC and on the papers it named Peter Owen and Daniel P. Monroe with Mariah Barnes on there.

Henry H. Barnes was born approximately about 1827- 1829 based on the censuses so that means Henry H. Barnes was between 2- 4 years old when the Bastardy Bond happened.

There are currently two male Henry Barnes descendants ( one of them being my father) who have Y-DNA tested and we believe the closest match currently is a descendant of Daniel P. Monroe.

  • If there are any living male descendants of Henry H. Barnes we encourage you to take an Y- dna test. They will match closely with these two male Henry Barnes descendants already tested on Ftdna. We would appreciate it!

Thanks in Advanceā€¦..


Henry 's wife Catherine Listed on Henry's probate record in December of 1866 at Haywood County, NC that Henry died in October of 1864 and There is a book by Clark Medford written in 1961 called "Early History of Haywood County , NC" on page 139, it says Henry died in March or April of 1865 Killed by Either Kirk's men or Teague's men. So We do not know which date is more accurate for his death. He is the son of Mariah Barnes.
