Our Christmas Brunch

We do Stan's family Christmas party on Christmas Eve. We do my family Christmas for brunch on Christmas morning. This time it was at our house. Here is my digital scrapbook page of Christmas brunch.



Savannah With Santa Claus Gifts

Our grand niece, Savannah, had a wonderful Christmas morning. Hannah snapped this photo playing with one of her Santa Claus gifts. Here is my digital scrapbook page of her.


Great Aunt Sharon With Ryan

Our newest addition to the family is little Ryan, our great nephew. Jenny brought the boys down for a week's Christmas visit and we loved being with them. I took this photo of my holding Ryan and made this digital scrapbook page of the two of us together.



Savannah Looking For A Real Christmas Tree

When our grandniece, Savannah, came to visit she looked for the "real" Christmas tree like her big one at home. I only have the little Christmas tree. She was so cute. I made this digital scrapbook page at her looking at my little Christmas tree.



Savannah

I took these photos and used a setting on my new camera that allows me to make everything black and white except the one selected color. Here is the digital scrapbook page I made of our great niece, Savannah, playing.

PigTails

Hannah couldn't wait for our great niece, Savannah's, hair to grow long enough to put in pig tails. She took this photo when it reached that stage. I made this digital scrapbook page about Savannah's little pigtails.


Picking Out A Christmas Tree

Here are the digital scrapbook pages that I made of the trip that Elaine (my sister), her husband Ronnie (Stan's brother), their son Luke and his wife Hannah and their daughter, Savannah took to pick out their Christmas trees. They went to Waynesville, NC to a Christmas tree farm and spent the day. Elaine got some great photos so I made this page from her photos.



Savannah On Her New Rocky Horse

I found a real rocking horse at a yard sale last Spring. I got it for $20. I cleaned it up and we stored it for Christmas. We gave it to Savannah, our grandniece, who loved it. When she's not a princess, she's a cowgirl! Once she got the hang of it she bounced and rocked on it for an hour saying, "Yee haw!" and "Giddy up!" It was one of my best buys. Here is my digital scrapbook page of her and her rocky horse.

Savannah Is Our Little Christmas Princess

Our grandniece, Savannah, got a pair of high heels, a tiara and a pocketbook from her Great Great Aunt Janis and Great Great Uncle Glenn for Christmas. She immediately went into girl mode and started prissing around. She clacked around in those high heels with her arm up carrying her pocket book like she'd been doing it all her life. Her Daddy told her she looked "bootiful". Here is my digital scrapbook page of her.


Brett Plays Playdoh

Our grandnephew, Brett, lives in Illinois with his family. But Jenny brought the boys for a week before Christmas and we had a great time. They stayed with her parents, Elaine and Ronnie, whom the boys call Grommie and Pickles. He evidently learned a little potty humor while he was down here. Here is my digital scrapbook page of a funny Playdoh incident.


Thrifty Thursday - Using Google Books

Thrifty Thursday - is a daily blogging prompt at Geneabloggers.com used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites. Do you have some neat ways of saving money when it comes to genealogy? Have you located a bargain on some research resource or office supply? Post about it during Thrifty Thursday! This series has been suggested by Judy Webster of Queensland Genealogy.

Learning how to use Google books has brought some fresh information in my genealogy. First go to books.google.com and play around with it. You can do searches for names of ancestors (it's possible they were written about in a book) or the names of a business or community to see if they were written about.

For instance, one of the cotton mills that employed some of Stan's ancestors was Monarch Mills in Union, SC. I typed in "Monarch Mills" and did a search. Here are just some of the books that it came up with:

History of South Carolina, Volume 5, Yates Snowden, Harry Gardner Cutler - 1920
America's Textile Reporter: For the Combined Textile Industries, Volume 35, dated 1/27/1921
Fabric of Defeat: The Politics of South Carolina Millhands, 1910-1948, By Bryant Simon
The Southern Textile Basketball Tournament: A History, 1921-1997, By Mac C. Kirkpatrick, Thomas K. Perry
Power from Steam: A History of the Stationary Steam Engine, By Richard L. Hills, 1993
etc.

Of course, just like with a regular Google search, you have to sift through other items that had "Monarch" and "Mills" in the same text. But if I wanted to learn more about Monarch Mills, here is a good way to get started researching. And, once you've found something you would like to add to your data, you can select text and clip (another word for copy) and paste either the link or the text to your machine into your notes. Be sure to note the source so you don't forget where you got it.

Another example was looking up "William Rankin Michael" who was one of my direct ancestors. And here were the results:
Timber Ridge Church: a two hundred year heritage of Presbyterian faith, 1786-1986 by Katharine Susong Harmon
Cobb connections: a history of the Cobb and related families by Joan Cervenka Cobb

Both of these books would interest me and add more information to my notes on him. Unfortunately both of these books were searchable but did not have all the text. Here is what Google has to say about that:

Many of the books in Google Books come from authors and publishers who participate in our Partner Program. For these books, our partners decide how much of the book is browsable — anywhere from a few sample pages to the whole book. Some partners offer the entire book in a digital edition through Google eBooks, in which case you can purchase the book.

For books that enter Google Books through the Library Project, what you see depends on the book's copyright status. We respect copyright law and the tremendous creative effort authors put into their work. If the book is in the public domain and therefore out of copyright, you can page through the entire book and even download it and read it offline. But if the book is under copyright, and the publisher or author is not part of the Partner Program, we only show basic information about the book, similar to a card catalog, and, in some cases, a few snippets — sentences of your search terms in context. The aim of Google Books is to help you discover books and assist you with buying them or finding a copy at a local library. It's like going to a bookstore and browsing — with a Google twist.

But it still gave me the names of some books to look for. I would particularly like to get my hands on the Timber Ridge Church book so I will be looking for it. So I learned several things from my Google book search on "William Rankin Michael".  One was that he was baptized in the Freiden Lutheran Church on 8/20/1843; two, he was an elder at Timber Ridge Church; three, that there is a book about Timber Ridge Church that I want. That church involved other ancestors and would be valuable to me.

So check out Google Book search before heading out to the library. You may find text without having to purchase a book, you might find a book that rates more interest or you might find things you would never have known because they were in obscure, old, even rare volumes or publications.

Amanuensis Monday - Back From Bastogne

The Battle of the Bulge

Towards the end of World War II (although, when this battle happened, no one knew the war would soon be over), Germany decided to try to break through the Allied line in a major offensive launched through the densely forested Ardennes mountain region of Wallonia in Belgium, and France and Luxembourg. The French call this the Battle of Ardennes. The Germans called it Operation Watch on the Rhine. Americans tended to call it the Battle of the Bulge because of the way the Allied front bulged on the maps. The Germans punched through the Allied lines creating that bulge. Germany's goal for these operations was to split the British and American Allied line in half, capturing Antwerp and then proceed to encircle and destroy four Allied armies, forcing the Western Allies to negotiate a peace treaty in the Axis Powers' favour. Near-complete surprise against a weakly defended section of the Allied line was achieved during heavy overcast weather, which grounded the Allies' overwhelmingly superior air forces. Fierce resistance, particularly around the key town of Bastogne, and terrain favouring the defenders threw the German timetable behind schedule. Allied reinforcements, including General George S. Patton's Third Army, and improving weather conditions, which permitted air attacks on German forces and supply lines, sealed the failure of the offensive. (Thank you, Wikipedia)



My good friend, Mary Elizabeth "Beth" Ford Gaffney, gave me this copy of a booklet about 6 survivors of the Battle of Bastogne. One was her father, Sgt. Edward E. Ford (aka Buck Ford). It was so interesting that I had to post it. I have added some photos that pertain to the content. These photos were NOT in the original. I have scanned the originals and you will find them at the bottom of this post.

First is a letter from the Governor of NC in 1945:

State of North Carolina
Governor's Office
Raleigh

R. Gregg Cherry
Governor

March 26, 1945

My Fellow North Carolinians:

We have with us for a brief visit in the state six heroes of the present war. They have come to North Carolina from their 101st Airborne Division to visit in manufacturing plants that are making vital war products and to tell the men and women who run these plants what production here at home means up there at the front where men fight and died - in order that these plants, like other American institutions, can continue to operate long after peace has been declared.

These men, survivors of the fury of the battle of Bastogne, are an inspiration to us all, Seeing them and hearing their story should fire us everyone to new productive efforts and a new vim and vigor to do the home front job for our men and women in service. These heroes know what it is like to be up there fighting without adequate supplies. They defended Bastogne, strategically important to our armed forces, days after supplies had been cut off. It took courage and spirit and sweat and determination and a lot of other things to hold Bastogne. But hold it they did! It takes some of these same qualities to give all and then some on the home front. These men did they job at Bastogne! Here in North Carolina, North Carolinians must also do their job!

R. Gregg Cherry
Governor of North Carolina


Now the booklet:

Title Page
Back - From Bastogne!

In April, 1945, six survivors of the BATTLE OF BASTOGNE visited selected plants in North Carolina which are producing essential war materials. This little booklet is dedicated to those six men and their comrades, many of whom died in defense of the little Belgian town which was held with indomitable courage in the face of overwhelming odds. It is presented to you as an essential war worker, producing goods needed by American fighting men all over the world.


Page 7 (I don't have Pages 1-6)

THE BATTLE OF BASTOGNE

There are stories of battles written in the blood and courage of American fighting men that will live in the hearts of all Americans for all time. The list of these battles has grown long in World War II and, high on the list, stands Bastogne.

It is traditionally American to love the under-dog, the little fellow who fights against odds. There is no more glorious accounts of the under-dog winning his fight than the Battle of Bastogne.

Von Rundstedt, Field Marshall in command of German armies in Western Europe, had thrown his armies back against the Allied Offensive. He started back through the Rhine valley with good cover of bad weather that assured little action from the superior Allied Air Force. His Panzer units struck against U.S. armies that were deployed for offensive action, that were off balance from a long offensive across France.

The German counter-offensive grew and spread, and there seemed non way to stop it as it swept into Belgium. The little Belgian town of Bastogne, juncture of great railroads and highways, suddenly became important. To stop the onrush of the Germans, Bastogne would have to be held. Parts of the 9th and 10th armored division were rushed up. The 101st Airborne Division, the famous "Screaming Eagles", were alerted from behind-line rest stations where they were licking their wounds from weeks of hard and continuous fighting. They were herded into cattle trucks and send speeding into Bastogne.

Remnants of U.S. outfits that had been chewed up by the German drive fell back on the town, and the Americans 0 about 10,000 in all 0 set up hurried defenses. A perimeter, just outside Bastogne, was set up and manned by the 101st paratroopers. Behind them were the tanks and tank destroyers. The inner defense circle was held by the remnants. Brigadier General Anthony C. McAuliffe, acting commander of the 101st, had been ordered to "hold Bastogne at all costs."


Brigadier General Anthony C. McAuliffe

On December 19 the battle was joined when American tanks were sent out to meet the Germans coming in from the east. The Germans were stopped there and, as German and American tanks burned thought the night, the enemy rolled around the town. By the next day Bastogne was surrounded on all sides, cut off from reinforcement in men or supplies. The surgical unit

Pg 8
had been captured and only first-aid kits in the hands of Medical Corpsmen remained to care for the wounded.

For the next two days the town was hammered mercilessly by the Nazis. Infantry, tanks and artillery gave the besieged garrison no rest. But everywhere Germans attacked, they were beaten off. And although American casualties were high, the Germans were paying dearly for every try and failure to capture the town. Americans died, as men in battle must, but the enemy paid for each American death with four of his own.

On December 22 the Germans sent in their ultimatum: "Surrender of be annihilated." General McAuliffe had had his orders to hold at all costs; he had heard his wounded, eased only by a little morphine and three ounces of cognac daily, plead with him: "Don't give up on account of us, General." He sent back one word to the German commander - "NUTS." His reply was passed around to his troops together with a message that told them that the Allied armies were counter-attacking.

On the 24th a weather break permitted C-47 transports to drop supplies, and a surgeon was brought in by plane. On Christmas day the Germans celebrated by stepping up their artillery fire and bombings, and by sending in heavy attacks. The Americans Christmas present to the Germans was to knock out 32 tanks and beat off the attacks. The shells and bombs they accepted until the day could come for vengeance. they never doubted that the day would come.

Battered, low on food and ammunition, exhausted with a weariness that crept into their very bones, the Americans fought on against the best the Germans could bring against them. Five German Division surrounding the town attacked time after time, but the waves of assault broke and washed back when they crashed against the unyielding rock-defense of Bastogne.

On the 25th the 4th armored division broke through the Germans to cut a narrow path into Bastogne. With them came the 101st regular commander, Major General M.D Taylor. He had been at home in Washington on furlough when he had learned of the plight of his troops, and had flown back to be with them.

Major General Maxwell D. Taylor



The Germans cut the rescue path that night, but the 4th broke through again next day and the Germans had lost their last chance to win the Battle of Bastogne. Because they failed

Page 9
to take it, the back of the German counter-offensive was broken; and a retreat was Von Rundstedt's only certainty.

Every man who took part in the Battle of Bastogne is a hero; every member of the 101st Airborne wears the Presidential Unit Citation for the gallantry in action. Many wear the Purple Heart, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Silver Star, and the ribbons of all the campaigns in which the Screaming Eagles have taken part. Many did not return from Bastogne, but those who did carry deep in their hearts the honorable pride of this knowledge: the wouldn't quit.

American will forever remember with pride and gratitude the Battle of Bastogne and the men who won it the American way - against overwhelming and terrible odds.

CAPTAIN ROBERT H. LEMONN
Robert H. Lemonn, wiry, intense, 30-year-old Captain from Whitmire, South Carolina, rode with his men in cattle trucks north to Bastogne. After 72 days of vicious fighting in Holland, Captain Lemonn and his men had been resting up and re-equipping when the 101st Airborne Division was ordered into Bastogne and told to "hold it all costs."

"As our trucks sped north," says Captain Lemonn, "it looked as though all the rest of the world was headed south. On the other side of the road, fleeing from the Germans, was a choked, sluggish stream of humanity - American soldiers ordered to retreat, civilian carrying, pushing, pulling what possession they could save in carts, wagons, baby buggies - anything that could roll. When we reached Bastogne, it was deserted except for a few who could not, or would not, leave."

Bastogne when they arrived

Captain Lemonn wears the Silver Star for "gallantry in action" and the Presidential Unit Citation for "outstanding performance in action" at Bastogne. He was in the invasion on D-day, and fought through Holland and Belgium.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. R.H. Lemonn of Whitmire, South Carolina, Captain Lemonn was a Dairy Specialist for the Clemson A&M College, of which he is a graduate, before he joined the Army. He is married and has a 3-year-old daughter.

"On Christmas day the Krauts shelled us with what appeared to be duds. They tunred out to be shells stuffed with pictures showing American girl in the armsCof men marked 4-F. That may be smart propagand, but it missed fire. It just  made us madder with the Jerries."

Pg 10
STAFF SERGEANT JACKSON B. VAIL
Staff Sergeant Jackson B. Vail of Cumberland Ceneter, Maine, went with the 4th Armored Division to the rescue of the besieged 101st at Bastogne. From December 20th to 26th, the 4th armored and infantry fought through the German bulge - through snow, across rivers and into the hilly country around Bastogne - past abandoned and captured American equipment that had been lost in the German Drive.

"Every hill the tanks would go over," said Vail, "would bring them into line with fire from well-placed enemy anti-tank guns. The tanks would wait then while the infantry went in to take the guns. It was tough going and it was slow, and sometimes we were driven back temporarily.

"Christmas day we were close enough to see American planes - C-47 carriers - come in low over Bastogne to drop supplies. We saw several shot down. We knew then that at least the surrounded troops were getting some supplies.."

A plane forced down after attempting to drop supplies in Bastogne.

Sgt. Vail, who was wounded by a sniper's bullet near Nancy in September 1944, joined the Army in June 1941, went to the United Kingdom in December 1943 and landed on the invasion coast of Normandy on D-day plus 9. He saw action in Normandy and northern France and wears the Silver Star and Purple Heart.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. H.J. Vail of Cumberland Center, Maine, Sergeant Vail attended high school in Falouth, Maine, and the Portland Junior College. He was a salesman for the American Can Company.

Pg 12
SERGEANT EDWARD E. FORD (the father of my friend, Mary Elizabeth "Beth" Ford Gaffney)
A lanky, grinning, six-foot-three mountaineer from Columbus, North Carolina, Sgt. Edward E. Ford was dug in on a hillside when he saw 19 German tanks come rolling down the valley. Sgt. Ford held the fire of his 57mm. anti-tank gun until the tanks broke formation and deployed to take the hill positions of the Americans.

A 5 mm anti tank gun

"I'd been lying in that hole for a lot of days waiting for a chance like that," said Sgt. Ford, "and when five of them turned off to the left and headed for the other hill, the waiting was over. They made swell targets broadside like that."

He got the five, and then was knocked out himself by enemy fire. When he came to, he took over a bazooka and knocked out two more tanks, one of which exploded and burst into flames. "Probably got their ammo.," he said, "I was aiming between the tracks."

A bazooka usually had a 2 man crew.

Sgt. Ford fought on in the snow until he received his second wound, a piece of shrapnel in the left arm, and was sent back for treatment.

Ford joined the Army in March, 1942 and was in on the invasion of Normandy on D-day. He saw action in France, Holland, and Belgium. He wears the Distinguished Service Cross for "extraordinary heroism," the Silver Star for "gallantry in action," the Purple Heart and the Presidential Unit Citation for action at Bastogne.

the son of Mrs. Estell Wilkinson of Columbus, North Carolina, Sgt. Ford attended school at Columbus and worked at the Frick Sawmill in Mill Springs, North Carolina, before he joined the Army. He is 25 years old.

Pg 13
CORPORAL RALPH L. COX
Ralph L. Cox, 30-year-old Corporal from Raeford, North Carolina, moved on foot up the valley with his platoon. They'd been told to take the high ground and stop the firing from the German emplacements there. In the face of intermittent harassing fire, they moved up. As they spread out and headed for the hills on either side of the valley, the Germans started firing "Screaming Minnies" at them. "Screaming Minnies" is a graphic, slang description of German rocket shells, fired in groups of nine.

"We were caught like flies on a wall," says Cpl. Cox. "There weren't any holes to get in - just flat ground everywhere, with no cover of any kind. We fell and hugged dirt. Two barrages came in. Afterwards I crawled up to see why the platoon ahead hadn't started moving again. The platoon leader and everybody up there had been killed - twenty of them wiped out in less than 6 seconds."

Cpl. Cox and the others who were left moved on up through the "Screaming Minnies" and "took the high ground."

Cox joined t he Army in August 1942 and landed in Normandy 8 hours before H-hour on D0day. He saw action in France, Holland, and Belgium and wears the Silver Star for "gallantry in action" and the Presidential Unit Citation.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Cox of Raeford, North Carolina, he is married and has three daughters, ages 3, 5, and 7. He worked for the North Carolina State highway Commission before joining the Army.

PRIVATE FIRST CLASS JAMES L. BALL
James L. Ball, 28-year-old Private First Class from Greenwood, Mississippi, speaks with the soft, slow drawl of the deep South and seems easy-going. But he wears a "Screaming Eagle" - the shoulder patch of the 101st Airborne Division - the symbol of the men who contempt of danger has become legendary.

Pfc. Ball is a member of the 502nd Parachute Infantry, one of the first of its kind to be formed in this country, and a part of the 101st Airborne. He has been with the 101st on every mission until, while he was in North Carolina visiting war plants to help urge more production of necessary materials, he learned that the 101st had jumped in the battle in the Ruhr.

Ball said that Bastogne was the toughest fighting he had seen. one gathers, however, that his main worry during the siege of Bastogne, was his inability to keep warm. "It was right at Christmas," he said, "and cold. A head of a lot colder than it ever gets in Greenwood."

Pfc. Ball joined the Army in October 1941, went to the United Kingdom in September 1943 and landed on the invasion coast of (illegible) on D-day plus two. He saw action in France, Holland and Belgium and wears the Presidential Unit Citation for "outstanding performance while in action" at Bastogne.

The son of Mrs. James Young of Shelby, Mississippi. Pfc. Ball attended high school in Greenwool, Mississippi, and worked in a service station in the same town before he joined the Army.

Pg 15
PRIVATE FIRST CLASS GEORGE M. LONG
George M. Long, 23-year-old Private First Class from Jeffersonville, Ohio, is a tall, husky soldier who made glider fabrics in Columbus, Ohio, before he joined the Army to become a gliderman. He has been with the 101st Airborne on its every mission.

"We went into Bastogne in trucks," he said. "It's the first time we ever were used as land troops. When we got there, the town had been evacuated. There was still merchandise in the store windows, but the stores and the houses were deserted. There was no damage anywhere - just a lot of quiet brick buildings. We were surrounded there for 7 days. At the end of that time the town was nothing but rubbish. There was a building left untouched."

"We heard that help was on the way and that helped a lot, but all of us knew anyway that we'd keep on fighting as long as we had anything to fight with."

Pfs. Long joined the Army in December, 1942 and was in the invasion of Normandy on D-day. He saw action in Normandy, Holland, and along the German border and wears the Presidential Unit Citation for "his outstanding performance in action" at Bastogne.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. George F. Long of Jeffersonville, Ohio, he attended high school in Bloomingdale, Ohio, and worked at the Columbus Coated Fabric Company, Columbus, Ohio, before he joined the Army. He is a member of bot the A.F. of L. and the C.I.O.

Mystery Monday - Samuel William Barnes and Margaret Ann Click

Mystery Monday is a daily blogging prompt at Geneabloggers.com used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites. Closely related to Madness Monday only these missing ancestors might not cause madness! Mystery Monday is where you can post about mystery ancestors or mystery records – anything in your genealogy and family history research which is currently unsolved. This is a great way to get your fellow genealogy bloggers to lend their eyes to what you’ve found so far and possibly help solve the mystery. Several genealogy bloggers have been using Mystery Monday as an ongoing series including Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings, Kathleen Moore of The Misadventures of a Genealogist and Betty Tartas of Betty’s Boneyard Genealogy Blog.


Samuel William Barnes was born between 1822-1825 in Davidson County, NC to Richard Gilmer Barnes, III (DOB About 1780 in Rowan County, NC; DOD About 1854 in Davidson County, NC) and Fanny Johnson (DOB About 1787 in Rowan County, NC; DOD About 1875 in Davidson County, NC). He was the 6th of 8 children.

Rowan 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.



So Samuel William Barnes was born about the time Davidson County, NC was formed. During his life these were the Presidents of the United States: 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 Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Chester A. Arthur and Grover Cleveland. He was too old to participate in the War of Northern Aggression as he was in his late 40's when it started and his children were too young to serve but it would have an impact on his life as he had brother, nephews, in-laws who served and/or died in the Civil War. He was a farmer and before The War, he listed his farm with a value of $1,800 (a good amount in those days) and after The War, he listed his farm with a value of $500.

Samuel William Barnes married Margaret Ann Click (DOB 1822-1825 in North Carolina to ? and ? ) about 1845 in Davidson County, NC on 8/16/1848 in Davidson County, NC. They had 6 children that I'm aware of:
1) Richard Barnes (DOB About 1849 in Davidson County, NC; DOD Between 1860-1870 in Davidson County, NC). He was listed with his family in the 1860 U.S. Census but he is NOT listed with them in the 1870 U.S. Census. He would have been 21 yrs old for the 1870 U.S. Census. Did he die before the 1870 U.S. Census or ?

2) Sarah Barnes (DOB 6/19/1851 in Davidson County, NC; DOD 10/22/1919 in Norwood, Stanly County, NC) married Eli Leonard (aka Ely Leonard) (DOB About 1855 in North Carolina; DOD Between 1880-1910). Leonard is the head of the family in the 1880 U.S. Census but I couldn't find this family in the 1900 U.S. Census and Sarah Barnes Leonard is living with her son, William Samuel Leonard, and his family in the 1910 U.S. Census and she is listed as a widow. They had 3 children that I'm aware of: William Samuel Leonard (married Lula V. House); John Cleveland Leonard (married 1st Lula Russell and 2nd Flora V. Goodman); Martha Leonard (married ?).

3) America Mariah Barnes (DOB 11/6/1853 in Davidson County, NC; DOD 11/13/1934 in Rowan County, NC) married Richard A. Swicegood (aka Richmond A. Swicegood) (DOB 8/13/1840 in Davidson County, NC; DOD 2/19/1910 in Rowan County, NC). They had 5 children that I'm aware of: Marshall Clingman Swicegood (married Mary E. Sheens); Charlie Swicegood (married ?); Luther Franklin Swicegood (married Minnie Lee Daniel); Duffy Swicegood (married ?); Horace Lee Swicegood (never married).

4) Samuel Barnes (DOB About 1856 in Davidson County, NC; DOD Between 1860-1870 in Davidson County, NC). He is listed with his family in the 1860 U.S. Census but he is not listed with his family in the 1870 U.S. Census and he would only have been 14 yrs old so I assume he died between 1860-1870.

5) Cynthia Barnes (DOB About 1859 in Davidson County, NC; DOD Between 1860-1870). She is listed with her family in the 1860 U.S. Census but she is not listed with her family in the 1870 U.S. Census and she would only have been 11 yrs old so I assume she died between 1860-1870.)

6) William L. Barnes (DOB 4/10/1863 in Davidson County, NC; DOD 7/1/1932 in Davidson County, NC) married Mary L Weant (aka Mary Wint, Mary Went) (DOB 10/3/1860 in Rowan County, NC; DOD 12/17/1939 in Salisbury, Rowan County, NC). They had 8 children that I'm aware of : Margaret "Maggie" J. Barnes (married ? Mauldley (sic)); Flora A. Barnes (married James M. Monroe); Charlie Richard Barnes (married Irene Harvelle); William Anderson Barnes (married ? ); Minnie Victoria Barnes (married William David Crowell); Walter Wilson Barnes (married Jesse E. Drye); Arthur David Barnes (married Mary Pearl Brown); Luther Lindsey Barnes (married Annie Mae Frederick).

Samuel William Barnes and Margaret Ann Click divorced between 1870-1880. I can't help but wonder what happened. It evidently wasn't an amicable divorce (I guess none were back then). I found this concerning their divorce and settlement:

Pleading Trust Deed
Husband and Wife
ACTIONS
1 A deed, after reciting that differences existed between a husband and wife, and that they desired to adjust such differences and provide "an adequate and sufficient support" for the wife, conveyed land to a trustee for the purpose of allowing the husband and wife to have the rents and profits, and to support the wife "in such manner she has heretofore lived;" and the trustee signed the deed. In an action by the wife against the trustee and her husband, plaintiff alleged that the trustee had neglected and refused to support her out the rents and profits; that she was 70 years, old and infirm, and had been for years dependent on charity; and that the rents and profits of the amounted to a certain sum per annum. The trustee denied that he was such, and alleged that his co defendant had possession of the land, receiving the rents and profits. Plaintiff demanded half the rents and profits for each year, and also general relief. Held, that it was error to dismiss the action, as the facts alleged entitled plaintiff to equitable relief, if not to a judgment at law.
2 Plaintiff is entitled to that part of the rents and profits of the current year which is necessary for her support, and to have paid debts contracted for her support in past years which were charged on the rents and profits, but is not entitled to have a share of rents and profits accumulated from year to year since the execution of the deed, as the provision was for her current support.
3 Though Code NC 78, provides that when a married woman brings an action her husband must be joined, except when the action concerns her separate property, or is between herself and her husband, such action should not be dismissed for failure of the husband to join, as it appears that he is hostile to plaintiff's rights, and she may be entitled to redress as against him.
4 The deed is not prima facie invalid on the ground that it was made in view of a separation of husband and wife.
Appeal from superior court, Davidson county; J. H. Merrimon Judge
The following is so much of the case stated on appeal as is necessary to an understanding of the opinion: Upon reading the pleadings and the introduction of the deed in trust attached to the complaint, his honor intimated an opinion that, according to the complaint itself, and a proper construction of the trust deed, the plaintiff had no cause of action against the trustee, Sowers. It appeared in evidence that at the time the deed in trust was written by the late J. M. McCorkle the plaintiff was living with her son-in-law, Swicegood, apart from Samuel W. Barnes, her husband; that she had instituted proceedings for divorce and alimony in Davidson superior court; that after the deed was executed case was discontinued without any decree for separation, and that she continued to live with her daughter until the present time, except for a short time when she stayed with a brother in Davie county; that she during this time had been dependent upon others for a support, that twice after the execution of the trust, and that within a year or two after its execution, she called upon defendant Sowers and asked for help from farm; that at one time, according to Mr. Swicegood, Sowers said "Yes it is my business to haul you the grain but I will have to be paid from the farm." At another time he wrote her the letter. There was evidence tending to show that at one time the plaintiff was notified by Barnes not to come to see her son who lived with Barnes. On another occasion she sent her son-in-law to Barnes to ask for grain from the farm and he (Barnes)  refused to send her any unless the plaintiff, her daughter, her daughter's husband, and her brother in Davie county would all sign a receipt. It was not insisted on the part of the defendants that she had ever received anything (defendant testified that 11 years ago he had placed in the kitchen at home a sack of flour and meal for her to send for and that both sacks had been standing where he placed them ever since) or that defendant Sowers had offered to interpose and collect rents for her benefit from Barnes, who occupied the farm. It was alleged by Sowers that at the time the trust was executed, Barnes and wife had agreed that Barnes should remain in possession and control of the premises, and that plaintiff should send to him for her part of the rents. The plaintiff offered evidence in contradiction of this. It was in evidence that the plaintiff was old; that she had been sick much of her time, and was now unable to attend court. The plaintiffs moved for judgment upon the verdict. Motion denied; and on motion of defendants the action was dismissed, from which judgment the plaintiff appeals. The following are the material parts of the deed of trust: "North Carolina Davidson county. Whereas differences exist between Samuel W. Barnes and his wife, Margaret A. Barnes, and whereas they are anxious and desirous to adjust such differences, and to provide an adequate and sufficient support for Margaret A. Barnes, this indenture, therefore, witnesseth that for and in consideration of the premises, together with the further consideration of one dollar in hand paid to the said Samuel W. Barnes by Philip Sowers, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, the said Samuel W. Barnes has this day bargained, granted, and sold, and by these presents doth hereby convey, unto the said Philip Sowers, the following tract of land, to wit, lying and being in the county of Davidson, and bounded as follows, [describing it ;]to have and to hold to the said Philip Sowers, to the following uses and none other: That the said Sowers shall hold the said lands, and to allow the said Samuel W. Barnes and Margaret A. Barnes to have the rents and profits thereof for their own use and behoof; and, further, that out of the said rents and profits to support the said Margaret Barnes in such a manner as she has heretofore lived, and after the death of the said Samuel W. Barnes and Margaret A. Barnes, the said Philip Sowers shall convey unto * * * In testimony whereof," etc (Signed by Barnes and Sowers)
M. H. Pinnix for appellant. Robbins & Raper, for appellees.
Merrimon, C. J. (after stating the facts as above) No question was raised by the pleadings, or on the trial in the court below, so far as appears as to the validity
v. 10s.E. no. 12-20
of the deed of trust in question. It was suggested, but not pressed on the argument in this court, that it was invalid, upon the ground that it was made in contemplation of a separation of husband and wife, parties to it, and with that view. If this is so, and there exists substantial ground for the contention, the deed should be put in question in that aspect of it by a proper pleading. We cannot, upon the face of it, see and determine that it is or is not invalid for the cause suggested. For the present purpose, and as it appears, we must treat and interpret it as a valid deed for the chief purpose specified in it, if such purpose is sufficiently expressed. Generally and ordinarily, when a married woman brings an action, her husband must join with her in it, except "when the action concerns her separate property" or "when the action is between herself and her husband." Code 178. But if he will not join her as he ought to do, she may make him a party defendant if need be. McGlennery vs. Miller 90 NC 215. In this case it appears with sufficient certainty that the husband will not join his wife, the plaintiff. Indeed, he is hostile to her alleged rights and the remedy by which she seeks to assert the same; and ,moreover, it may turn out that she is entitled to some measure of redress as against him in connection with his co-defendant; so that the action could not be dismissed upon the ground that the husband did not join in it with his wife.
We are clearly of opinion that the action as it appears to us from the record proper and the case stated on appeal should not have been dismissed. The plaintiff alleges the deed (the chief purpose of it) was to provide a support for herself; that the defendant trustee and his co-defendant have wholly neglected and refused to supply her reasonable wants and a support out of the rents and profits of the land; that the trustee has wholly neglected, at all times, to execute the trust; that she is 70 years old, poor, sick, and infirm, and has had for years to rely upon the bounty of her kinsfolk for such support as she has had; that she has demanded of the trustee that he execute the trust; that he has always refused and neglected to do so, to her great injury; that the rents and profits of the land are equal to $300 per annum, etc. The defendants admit some of the material allegations and deny others, and particularly the defendant trustee denies that he is such in any active or responsible sense, and alleges that his co-defendant has had possession of the land and received rents and profits thereof. The pleadings, taken in connection with the deed, make a case in which the plaintiff is surely entitled to some relief, and she is entitled to assert her rights in this action. Although a judgment at law for half the rents and profits of each year since the deed was executed is formally demanded in the complaint, general relief is also demanded; and the facts alleged, if, indeed, they are such, entitle the plaintiff to equitable relief. The action is both legal and equitable in its nature and purpose, and the court can proceed therein to compel the defendants to a due execution of the trust, and direct an account of the rents and profits of the land, and make all other necessary inquiries and directions to that end. The allegations of the complaint are not so definite in all respects as they might and should be. Still the court can see the scope of the plaintiff's cause of action, and it may, if need be, require the allegations to be made more precise and direct. If the complaint alleges a cause or causes of action at law, the plaintiff will be entitled only to a judgment at law; but where it alleges sufficiently a cause of action equitable in its nature, the court will give such relief as the plaintiff may be entitled to have. Indeed, the court will, in a proper case, administer the principles both of law and equity in the same action.It seems that the defendants have misunderstood the nature, purpose, and importance of the deed now to be interpreted, else they have willfully been derelict in the discharge of what it made a plain duty on the part of the trustee. It is recited in the preamble of the deed that its purpose is to adjust differences, and "to provide an adequate and sufficient support" for the plaintiff. This was the leading, chief purpose of it. To that end the land was conveyed to the defendant trustee to have and to hold the same to the following uses, and none other, that the said Sowers, the trustee, shall hold the said lands and to allow the said Samuel W. Barnes and Margaret A. Barnes (the plaintiff) to have the rents and profits thereof for their own use and behoof; and, further, that out of the said rents and profits to support the said Margaret Barnes "in such manner as she has heretofore lived," etc. The defendant trustee signed this deed, and thus accepted the trust and became chargeable with it according to its true intent and meaning. This signing on his part was not a mere meaningless ceremony; it was important, and imported that he accepted the title to the land charged with the trust. He was to have and to hold it for the specified uses, to wit, particularly to allow his co-defendant and the plaintiff to have the rents and profits thereof for their own use and behoof, but with the further express provision as to the wife "that out of the said rents and profits to support the said Margaret Barnes [the plaintiff] in such manner as she has heretofore lived." that is, out of such rents and profits she was to have such support, if they were adequate for that purpose though it might take the whole. This must be so else, this further provision is meaningless. That this interpretation is correct is the more manifest because it harmonizes with the recital in the preamble in the deed, which declares that the purpose of the latter is "to provide an adequate and sufficient support" for the plaintiff. The clear purpose was to provide for her such support as she had, before the execution of the deed, been accustomed to have, and that she should have devoted to that purpose so much of the rents and profits of the land as might be necessary. The surplus was intended for the husband. The deed does not provide that the plaintiff shall have one-half, one-third, or any definite part, of the rents and profits, or accumulations therefrom, but current, "adequate and sufficient support." What this is will depend on what she has, what she reasonably needs, her health, necessary incidental expenses, living in the like sphere and condition as she did before the provision was made for her. The plaintiff alleges that the defendant trustee has never allowed her such or any support out of the rents and profits of the land, and that she is entitled to have "her share" of the same accumulated from year to year ever after the date of the deed. We do not think so, because the purpose was to provide for her current support, and she neglected to enforce her rights, as she might have done from time to time through the courts. Gray vs West, 93 NC 442. If, however, in good faith, she contracted in any one or more years debts for her support, which debts she made a charge upon the rents and profits of the land of the year in which the debts were respectively so created, she would be entitled to have such debts paid by the defendant trustee if the rents and profits of such year were adequate for that purpose. But persons who made her gifts, or entertained her gratuitously, could not now be allowed to make charges against her on such account, and have the same paid as indicated above. The effect of the deed was to give the defendant trustee control of the land embraced by it, and it charged him to let the same, and see that it yielded rents and profits, and to allow the plaintiff to have the same for her support. He might have allowed his co-defendant, if he were responsible, to occupy and cultivate the land, as it seems he did do; but he should have required him to account annually for the rents and profits thereof, and devote so much of the same as might be necessary under the deed to the support of the plaintiff. It may be that he can still compel him to such account, and possibly in this action. But as to all this he will be advised by counsel. Treating the deed as valid, and interpreting it, as we have done, upon the pleadings, the court, we think, should have directed an account of the rents and profits of the land of the current year to be taken,- an ascertainment of what part thereof is necessary for the plaintiff's support for that year, and what debts are outstanding against her for her support since the date of the deed, as indicated in this opinion and report of the whole to be made; and on the coming in of the report, in the absence of valid exceptions thereto, it should have given judgment directing the rents and profits, or the value thereof, to be paid to the plaintiff, and such debts created for her support to be paid, etc. The judgment dismissing the action must be set aside, and further proceedings had therein substantially as indicated in this opinion, unless and except the court shall see fit, in its discretion, to allow any proper amendments of tha pleadings; and in that case it shall dispose of the action upon its merits as they may appear in the course of its further progress. To that end let this opinion be certified to the superior court It is so ordered.


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 and 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. Amanda J. Darr, daughter of Henry Darr and Margaret Uphemia Simeson; Sarah F., b. c1859, d. 1882; John M., b. c1859, d. 2/1/1926; George W., b. 3/2/1860, d 3/31/1881; Fannie, b. c 1862; Calton M.

Buried: 7/3/1932 in Salisbury, NC

*Paralysis agitans is now known as Parkinson's Disease.  PD is   degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. The motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease result from the death of dopamine-generating cells in the substantia nigra, a region of the midbrain; the cause of this cell death is unknown. Early in the course of the disease, the most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking and gait. Later, cognitive and behavioural problems may arise, with dementia commonly occurring in the advanced stages of the disease.
