Mariah was born in 1802. Birth Place possibly be North Carolina.
She shows up on 1830 Census in the household of her Father Joseph Barnes in Haywood County NC.
She had 2 sons that she gave birth out of wedlock and according to the bastardy laws in the 1800's was that any children born out of wedlock could not have the father's surnames and was allowed to have the mother's surname and in the case these 2 boys carried on the last name Barnes because Mariah was born an Barnes before she married Richard Price on Dec 1st 1834 at Haywood County.
Her son Thomas Barnes was born between 1820- 1824 per the census. We think he might have been a little younger than what he gave out as his birth year. On Mariah's Bastardy Disposition Papers - there were 2 Men listed as the father of her 2 children at the time. We suspect Peter Owen could have been the father of Thomas Barnes
Her other son Henry Harvey Barnes - was born approx. 1827- 1830 - His father was Daniel Patrick Monroe who also shows up as another father on Mariah's Bastardy Bonds and My Father has taken Y- Dna test and has a few matches to others who go back to Daniel Patrick Monroe.
So the dna evidence supports the Bastardy Bonds.
