Biography

Brittain Barnes of lower Edgecombe County lived until Feb 1818, and was married to Penelope, who predeceased him. Burwell was among their children.

Burwell Barnes died in 1836, leaving an estate of 812 acres on Cabin Branch and Great Swamp not far from the present Elm City. He married Elizabeth Flowers who was born in 1783 and died after 1850. Their children were:
  1. James W Barnes, m. Mary Ann Bridgers
  2. Martha Barnes, m. Benjamin W Sharpe
  3. Nancy Barnes, m. John Gray Williams
  4. Jacob H Barnes, m. Nancy Ann Skinner
  5. Pennie (Penelope) Barnes, m. David P Shallington
  6. Willie Gray Barnes, m. Mary Elizabeth Armstrong
  7. Hardy Flowers Barnes, m. Unity Ellis[1]

Matching on location, this census report from 1820 places Burwell in Edgecombe County.[2]

A probate file in the same county appears to at least confirm the year of death and his wife's name as Elizabeth. Other family members appear to be listed, but a good cursive reader is needed.[3]
