Reardon-355 and Barnes-16233 appear to represent the same person because: DNA connections prove the family lore of Hannah's birth to Elizabeth (Nash) Reardon. Records give her the baptism name Barnes, the family in which she was reared.

I believe she should keep the birth family name of Barnes for paper record tracking, and be connected as the daughter of Elizabeth (Nash) Reardon for DNA tracking

Hannah was baptised with the name Hannah Barnes. She was brought up by a neighbouring family, Richard and Mary Ann (King). Hannah was born 2 years before Bartholomew was released from Port Arthur prison.

Richard and Mary Ann had a son Sam, about 1 year older than Hannah. My paternal Aunt called him Uncle Sam.

Hannah is 24 degrees from Caryl Ruckert, 20 degrees from Harriet Stowe and 15 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
