Hi Charles,

For some reason, you came back on my radar and I looked at your tree. If you are confident that Reuben came from Bertie, you are probably not related to Brinsley's line. We think that Solomon came from Bertie but if you are confident that Reuben is Irish, you can also rule out Solomon who DNA recently shows was English.

Welcome you did a great job sourcing Reuben. Since family tradition says he comes from Ireland and is NC based, he may be a descendant of Brinsley Barnes-1145. I am just guessing but I think he may be a grandson. Reuben was a popular name among the Barnes.

I've been researching my family genealogy since about 2001. My main interests are in Barnes families that moved from North Carolina to Indiana in the 1840s and in the descendants and ancestors of Stephen Marshall, born in 1802 in New Hampshire, homesteaded in Henry County, Illinois, and died in 1845. I've read and agree with WikiTree's mission and rules; I like the emphasis on documentation and accuracy.

Hi Charles,

I noticed you uploaded a GEDCOM. Here's a link to a great step-by-step of the process including screenshots that you might find helpful.

The help pages give lots of information about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.

Happy Hunting,
