This is my mothers direct maternal line. My Grandmother said that Milstead's came on the Mayflower BUT there are none on the passenger list.
My Barnes Irish immigrant with his family of eight children settled Orange Co. in 1753. As Regulators they protested against taxes imposed by the Royal Governor. Fearing reprisal they migrated to Indian Territory (Wilkes/Burke County) circa 1784.
My maternal line is Oxford. We descend from immigrant John Oxford who at the age of 13 indentured himself on a plantation in VA. Later descendants migrated to NC. I am a member of the SAR based on the service of Patriot Samuel Oxford, Jr.

Hi Hugh. I compared our two DNA tests and there's no connection. But, it's nice to see other Barnes. Thanks for contacting me.

Hi, Hugh. Thanks but there's no connection there that I know of. The Barnes name in my maternal line could be handed down from the slave owner to the slave. As far as I know, there is no connection but thanks for contacting me.

Hugh, I added Lettie Barnes as a daughter of Isaac Barnes. Will leave to the experts what to do with the duplicate Isaac Barnes

Hi Hugh, thank you for the feedback. I'm most interested in tracing out my Barnes father was James Claude Barnes, and his father was J.C. Barnes. J.C. was his birth name but Social Security would not accept it according to my mother and he came up with the name James C(laude) Barnes, he married Nellie Lee Guess where they married is unknown, but resided and died and Sherwood Tennesee. They had three sons (including my father) and eight girls. I'm trying to trace the lineage but hard to do as all are deceased but a aunt named Jo whom is the youngest and does not remember anything. Your help is much appreciated!

Hi Hugh, I'm project coordinator for the new Genealogical Societies Committee, and reaching out to those who commented on the G2G post. We were curious if you were interested in helping establish a page/presence for your society on WikiTree, and/or if you have any ideas on how to get your society involved on WikiTree. Let me know if you are interested and we'll go from there! Thanks!! - Summer

Hugh, Thank you for letting me know that the dates are not adding up on my Barnes relatives. I will contact your friend in the near future to see if we can figure out which Barnes & within what dates are more accurate. I appreciate your bringing this to my attention and admit that my Barnes tree branch does need a lot of work, kathleen
