Dutch Blue Genealogies, which is based on Descendants of John Blaw (Blue), d.1757, Somerset Co., NJ:
18.104.22.168 Barnabas BLUE (1757-1827), m. Talithacuny "Charity" MARSHALL. He was raised in Berkeley Co. VA and served in the Revolutionary War in Capt. William Morgan's company of Berkeley Co. volunteer militia. His name appears on the 1782/3 Berkeley Co. tax list. After the war, in 1786, he received a warrent for 400 acres of land in Providence Twp., Bedford Co. PA. This land was surveyed in 1791 and patented to Michael BLUE, Barnabas' brother, in 1799. Barnabas was on a 1789 list of inhabitants of Providence Twp. and is listed in the 1790 census of Bedford Co. PA. Barnabas and Michael took part in the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794 and were bound "to answer bills of indictment for riot and treasonable acts, setting seditious poles in opposition to the whiskey tariff, to appear at Jan term of Court, 1795". They, and many others, appeared in court as directed, plead guilty and were fined (fines for all ranged between 5 shillings and £15). In 1795 he was in Bourbon Co. KY, where he signed the marriage bond for his niece, Elizabeth BLUE. He remained in Bourbon Co. through 1800 and in 1805 he received two land patents in Miami Co. OH, 200 acres in Sect. 12, Twp. 1, Range 10, and 160 acres in Sect. 28, Twp. 2, Range 11; the first was in Staunton Twp., near his brother Uriah, and the second was in Lost Creek Twp. It is believed that they lived on the Lost Creek Twp. land. Barnabas died in 1827 without a will. His sons, Solomon and Uriah, were administrators of his estate. The estate papers make it clear that Barnabas' father was Michael BLUE of Virginia. This confirms that Michael BLUE [1.1.2] remained in VA, probably Berkeley Co., after his sons moved to PA, KY and OH.
