Amanuensis Monday - Mary "Polly" Barnes and George D. Beck

Amanuensis Monday - is a daily blogging prompt at Geneabloggers.com used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites. An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin – some we never met – others we see a time in their life before we knew them. A fuller explanation can be found here. Amanuensis Monday is a popular ongoing series created by John Newmark at Transylvanian Dutch.



 May "Polly" Barnes was born About 1820 in Davidson County, NC to Gilmer Richard Barnes, III (aka Richard Gilmer Barnes) and Fanny Johnson. She was the 5th of 8 children. She had 3 older sisters and an older brother.

The county was formed in 1753 from the northern part of Anson County. Matthew Rowan, acting governor of North Carolina from 1753 to 1754, was it's namesake. Rowan County was a large pioneer territory in western NC with an indefinite western boundary. Rowan included the entire northwestern sector of North Carolina. Over time, its size was reduced as a number of counties were split off. This began in 1770, when the eastern part of it was combined with the western part of Orange County to become Guilford County, North Carolina. In 1771 the northeastern part of what remained of Rowan County became Surry County. In 1777 the western part of Rowan County became Burke County. In 1788 the western part of the now much smaller Rowan County became Iredell County. In 1822 the eastern part of the county became Davidson County. Finally, in 1836 the part of Rowan County north of the South Yadkin River became Davie County.

The United States Presidents during her lifetime were James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler,  James K. Polk, Zachary Taylor, Millard Filmore, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James Garfield, Chester A. Arthur, Grover Cleveland, and Benjamin Harrison. She lived through the War of Northern Aggression and the hard Reconstruction years. She also saw the Industrial Revolution begin.

Mary Barnes married George D. Beck About 1849 in Davidson County, NC. George Beck was born 10/1828 in Davidson County, NC to Henry C. Beck and Margaret Miranda Maulden. Henry C. Beck had 3 wives: Sophia Barnes (DOB 1810-1811 in Rowan County, NC; DOD 1861-1865 in Davidson County, NC) and they had 2 children, Samuel Turner Beck and Ellen Beck Lomax; Sarah McBride; and, Margaret Miranda Maulden (DOB About 1806 in Davie County, NC; DOD About 1849 in Davidson County, NC) and they had 9 children, George D.

Davidson County NC Heritage Book, published 1982, pg 39, #130, "Richard Barnes, b. 1780, d. 1854, was the son of Richard and Catherine (?) Barnes.  On 11/21/1808 he married Frances "Fanny" Johnston, b. 1787, d. c1874.  They are buried in the Churchland Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery.  There is a rock wall around their graves with one rock hand engraved with 'Barnes'.  Richard bought his first land, consisting of 260 acres on the North Yadkin River and Ready Run, from Thomas Smith on 12/28/1815.  He conveyed this to Thomas P. Ives 10/16/1817 who, in turn, conveyed it to Rowland Crump 9/19/1823.  He began purchasing land on Swans Creek and Potts Creek in 11/1818 until, by 1839, he had accumulated over 800 acres.  I think their home was between Churchland and Boone's Cave.  The children of Richard and Fanny were 1) Elizabeth, m. ? Nunnally; 2) Nancy, m. 7/13/1840 Burgess Thomason; 3) Sophia, b. c1811, m. 1st 4/23/1831 to William Wood, m. 2nd c1848 to Henry Beck; 4) John, b. 11/3/1816, d. 9/19/1892, m. 3/18/1841 Margaret Ratts; 5) Mary (Polly), b. c1820, m. George Beck, b. 10/1828; 6) Samuel W., b. c1822, d. 1896, m. Margaret ?; 7) Fannie, b. 6/29/1824, d. 5/7/1905, m. 8/29/1848 Moses Lamb; 8) Richard, b. c1828, m. Louisa ?.  From the history of the Churchland Baptist Church which was organized as Pine Meeting Baptist Church in 1837 with 11 charter members, the names of Richard, Fannie and Nancy Barnes are found among this group.  Richard Barnes appointed his son, Samuel W., as executor of his will which was written 9/28/1854.  He left the homeplace to his son Richard after his wife's death.  He had already conveyed his sons John and Samuel W. 150 acres of land.  Richard conveyed his inheritence to his brother, Samuel W., on 8/29/1856.  The will of Fanny Barnes, dated 5/16/1874, mentions sons John and Samuel, and daus. Polly and Fanny.  I think it safe to assume that the other children had either died or moved from the vicinity."
"Mary (Polly) Barnes, b. c1820, m. George Beck, b. 10/1828.  The 1880 Census shows 3 children:  Joseph b. c1850; Curtis b. c1859; and Mary b. c1854.  After Mary's death George married Amanda Grubb, daughter of John and Susie (Leonard) Grubb."
"Samuel W. Barnes, B. c1822, d. 10/5/1896, married Margaret A. ?, b. c1825, d. 7/1890.  They had 4 children:  Richard b. c1849; Sarah, m. Ely Leonard; America, b. c1854, m. Richard A. Swicegood, b. c1848 as the son of Richmond Swicegood and Mary (Polly) Miller; William L., b. c1863.  Samuel and Margaret separated c1876, and she went to live with her daughter, America Barnes Swicegood.  The property was intrusted to Philip Sowers, and he recorded these deeds in 1909.  The 1880 census shows Jonathan & Albertine Williams and their children living with Samuel W. Barnes."
"Fannie Barnes, b. 6/29/1824, d. 5/7/1905, m. 8/29/1848 Moses Lamb, b. 4/26/1828, d. 4/14/1889.  They are buried in Churchland Missionary Baptist Church near her parents.  Their children were Mary Elizabeth, b. 6/10/1849, m. 3/13/1873 David Worth Barnes; Lewis F., b. 12/20/1852, d. 3/31/1901, m.
