Keeping up
My paternal line is Barnes. Born in 1713, my immigrant Brinsley arrived in PA from Ireland circa 1734. He, his spouse and all 8 of their children migrated to Orange Co., NC circa 1753. As a Regulator, he protested against the Royal Governor. Fearing Tory oppression, he and four sons migrated to Indian Territory (Wilkes County, NC) which was outside of government control. (See North Carolina tag to trace family migration.) Most stayed in Wilkes some migrated to Kentucky, Indiana an Missouri.

Hi Hugh,

Thanks for your message. Honestly I've never tracked down the Barnes limbs of our tree and should probably spend more time pursuing maternal lines as well. the Moore's as well go back to Ireland (1675) with Andrew and his son captain William later married into the Penescobt (Maine) and Cherokee (South Carolina) tribes. It's apparently true what they say about sailors having a girl in every port.

Even my paternal grandmother, who comes from the Connor / Barnes union, were originally O'Connors upon arrival from Ireland.

I have lots of info to transfer from ancestry back to the wiki. I'll let you know when I find out Moore.
