Robert Barnes

b. 1748 (Wood Co., WV) - d. 1844 (Wood Co., WV)

 

CAUTION: I was questioning why Robert Barns would remain unmarried and have no children until the age of 60 and then marry a women 40 years young.


I found a marriage record of Robert Barns m. Mary Cross (or Crops) in Berkeley Co., VA Oct. 12, 1793.  I believe that this is that Robert Barns, and the Robert Barns that married Jane Langfitt is probably his son.

 

There is also record of Robert Barns in Washington Co., OH in 1850 (after this Robert Barnes had died).

 
I am still researching this, but it does seem much more likely
