My paternal immigrant was 63 when the War broke out but provided material service and is recognized by the DAR. He had 5 sons all were member of the Chatham County, NC militia. My 4th great grandfather resigned from the militia and enlisted in Kingbury's artillery unit, the only independent artillery unit in the Continental Army. As a gunner, he fought at Valley Forge and Monmouth Courthouse and earned the nickname "Deaf John". I am a member of the SAR on the reord of my maternal 3rd gf
See explaination under 1776
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.
My paternal great grandmother was a Ferguson

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 Wendy Oxford a Captain in the Royal Army of English King Charles I. Wendy was persecute by Parliament when Cromwell became Prime Minister. He was placed in stocks. Fearing that harm would come to his 13 year old son John, Wendy indentured John on a VA tobacco plantation. John's grandson Samuel, Jr. migrated along with his father to NC where he served as a Revolutionary War.

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.

Hi Hugh, thanks for the offer of a potential lead. This individual was probably part of a GEDCOM import a few years ago and I have no idea how she may tie in to my family. Newton County is east of Atlanta, and my family is from east Georgia, Toombs, Montgomery, Tattnall, Candler, Bulloch and Emanuel counties, mostly. I just check on Familysearch every once in a while to see if I can find a Mary Barnes that is somehow associated with Moseley, Williamson, Collins, Brantley, Cowart or any of the other surnames connected with my family. She may remain a mystery. Thanks!

Welcome to the 1776 Project (, a subproject of the Military and War Project:

There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.

If you haven’t already, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include 1776 Project and any other tag terms that you wish to follow:

Some categories have a template (SAR) to add at the top of a biography. If not, add a category link by putting the category name such as
1776 Liberty Bell
Event years 1773-1789.
Join: 1776 Project
Discuss: 1776
for those who bore arms in the Revolution and
1776 Liberty Bell
Event years 1773-1789.
Join: 1776 Project
Discuss: 1776
for those who contributed patriotic or civil service. Thank you.

Hi, Hugh!

Of course you can be bold! ;-)

I'm sorry I didn't leave you a note about your G2G post. I caught it on the fly and then never got back to leave you an explanation.

It's because you were essentially "advertising" a product -- i.e., asking for a fee for documents. The Terms of Service prohibit this in a couple of different sections (3 & 4). You can see it here:

It looks like you got this sorted out and revised your post. So, thanks for doing that and good luck with your research group!

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
