T. C. BARNES
Little has found its war into history relatinsj to the Barnes
Family in America. Such as has been published has resulted in
many errors, and given rise to false impressions. It has been the
life work of the author to trace, generation by generation, the
descendants of those ancestors of the Barnes name who settled in
Connecticut during the first half of the seventeenth century, em-
bracing branches of relationship so very remote that almost all traces
had become obliterated. The similarity of names running through
families living near each other, has made his task a most difficult
one, and only by close comparison and patient study has he been able
to separate one individual from another bearing the same name and
age, and from the same locality. Many will, no doubt, find he has
traced their relationship to ancestors unheard of.
He has traced forward from the ancestor, step by step, rather
than by the reverse, or backward process, until the living repre-
sentatives of their different lines have been found. By this method
he has been able to solve many stubborn problems, though not with-
out many years' delay, and leaving others to occupy his attention.
He does not claim perfection for his work, but desires to present
for preservation what he has, and asks the further co-operation of
all, that all errors may be corrected, so when the time comes for a
general history of the Barnes family to be published, it may be
perfect in every respect and worthy of our greatest effort.
He contemplates making this pamphlet one of a series to appear
annually, which shall include all records pertaining to all branches
of the Barnes name and blood.
To our earlier genealogies and local histories, we owe almost
everything; we have freely borrowed information, but have en-
deavored to verify them by individual research and investigation.
If he has eliminated errors and opened family lines whereby others
may gain an opportunity to go still farther toward perfecting them,
his work will surely not be overlooked or forgotten, but as an
association, it will be continued hand in hand with all who truly
yearn for the preservation of family lines and traditions.

THE BARNES FAMILY ASSOCIATION
This is an association of members of the family for the object
of cultivating a better acquaintance and a more social relationship
between all^ as well as for making a united effort for the collection
and preservation of records and history of the family, as expressed
in Art. Ill of their Constitution, reading as follows:
" The object of the Association shall be the collection and pres-
ervation of all genealogical records, the tracing of family lines,
traditions and like matters of interest, all with a view to their ulti-
mate publication in endurable form. We propose an active and
aggressive campaign toward that end, that we may hasten the time
when we can present to the public, a history of our family worthy
of the undertaking."
This organization was perfected at New Haven, Conn., on the
4th of June, 1903, in answer to a call sent out by the author. An
annual meeting and a general reunion of all of the Barnes blood is
held on the third Thursday of August each year; all are invited to
the reunion, but only members of the association participate in the
business. There is a fee of fifty cents for annual membership, or
five dollars for life, which enables the association to continue a
correspondence for collecting records, but not sufficient to employ
professionals to copy records which are known to exist on the
records of almost every town, Church and Probate. We earnestly
solicit such records as contributions, by our members and friends.
Let the name of every person by our name, or bearing our blood, be
placed in our keeping, and let us have a record of every death with
a brief life sketch. It is hoped that the entire family will unite
with the association and lend their encouragement to our undertaking.

The name " Barnes " it is said was derived from the Norse
" Bjorne," meaning warrior, and was brought to England with
William the Conqueror, being the name of his trusted aide. The
Norsemen were true-hearted, daring, and brave, and their blood is
a heritage most highly prized. The names Barn, Barne, Bern, Ber-
ners, Barnard, Bernard, and others, have the same origin as Barnes.
The family became numerous and spread through Great Britain
and her colonies. It has been no part of tlie work of our historian
to extend researches to the mother country, hence our information
from the family there is merely incidental, but enough to show that
they were numerous and influential, and as the name implies, true
The Barnes family gave a Lord Mayor to London — Barnaby
Barnes, a poet, whose father was Bishop of Durham. William
Barnes received lands from Henry VIII. in the royal forest of
Tillingham. Dame Juliana Bernier, who also wrote her name
Barnes and Bornes, was a celebrated writer in the fourteenth cen-
tury, and a copy of one of her works sold in London some years
ago for three thousand dollars. Her father was created a Baron by
Burke gives seventeen different Coats of Arms for respective
houses of the Barnes family, and five others for Barne. The lion,
unicorn, greyhound, falcon, and leopard are prominent sj^mbols
It is most likely that the name as transmitted to America, came by
representatives of lines extending back many generations in Eng-
land to a common ancestor. Here they have borne their share of
the adventure and hardships experienced in clearing, and building
up a great country, in conquering a savage hoard, and exterminating
wild beasts. Coming early to our eastern shore, they have swept
back with each succeeding wave of civilization, foremost in every
hazardous expedition requiring nerve and sinew for success. Fore-
most in cultivating and making productive the soil, foremost in pre-
paring and protecting homes for the benefit and comfort of their
posterity, they have permeated the whole land, havx entered into all
trades, and have been honored in all professions. As a family they
have been strictly industrious. They have shunned speculative
schemes as detrimental to the well-being of their fellowmen, and
Barnes History 3
have chosen to render honest labor for their livelihood, rather than
wring it from their neighbors, in mercenary trade. They have ever
been loyal to the spirit of freedom, borne to our New England
shores by the Pilgrim ancestors. Obedient and stubborn soldiers^
they have stood upon the field of battle in every hour of peril and
sailed on privateers to meet invading foes. The only places we
fail to find the name is on the rolls of the prison and the almshouse.
SOME IMMIGRANT BARNES
1 THOMAS BARNES came to the colony of Massachusetts and
settled at Hingham, Mass., abt. 1634; believed to have been a son
of Roland. He was b. in England in 1602 and d. in Hingham, Nov.
29, 1672. He received a grant in a land distribution in 1637. He
was probably m. in Mass. abt. 1640. His wife Anna d. Apl. 5,
1691. Her family name is not known to us. They had seven ch.,
all b. before 1655, four sons and three daus. One dau. d. in in-
fancy; one son is believed to have been a bachelor; the remainder,
three sons and two daus. probably all left descendants, who have
multiplied during the years, and are now represented in every part
of our great Commonwealth. It has been no part of the author's
work in j^ast years to attempt to trace this branch, but we accept
them as worthy representatives of those Puritan ancestors, and shall
henceforth devote an equal effort to trace and preserve a genealogi-
cal record of this family.
2 THOMAS BARNES, whom we designate as. " Thomas of
Hartford," is claimed by many to have been the first of the name
in America. No reference is found to him elsewhere than in Hart-
ford, but he, without doubt came first to Mass., thence to Hartford,
with, or soon after, the first settlers. He was one of the soldiers in
the Pequot Battle, and received land grants of the Colony for that
service — in 1639 six acres in Hartford, — and later was alloted 50
acres in J'armington, where he settled with the first party in 1646,
and there resided, sharing in all the land distributions until the time
of his death, I688. (Farmington, at this early period, included the
territory of Southington, New Britain, Plainville, Bristol, Burling-
ton, and Avon of the present day.)
Thomas Barnes' first wife Mary (family not obtained), whom
he married perhaps soon after he removed to Farmington, was
charged with witchcraft and summoned before the General Court,
where she was convicted (see Colonial Records, 1658), and most
certainly executed. She left two sons and a daughter. He soon
after m. second, Mary Andrus of Farmington, by whom he had two
sons. Each of his ch. left a numerous posterity, who have moved
westward with each advance of the adventurous pioneers, until the
rivers, lakes, plains, and mountains have been passed by succeeding
generations. Not even the mighty ocean on our west has checked
the onward march of many.
Some Immigrant Barnes 5
It is claimed that the ancestry of this branch has been traced back
in England some five or six hundred years, but the connection does
not appear sufficiently authentic to make it desirable that it be pub-
lished in this volume.
3 THOMAS BARNES, hereafter referred to as " Thomas of
New Haven," came to New Haven when still a boy, and no mention
is found of his name until about 1644, when he became of age, and
shared in the land distribution. (Savage confused the Thomases,
assuming several different persons to have been one individual.)
Thomas of New Haven m. abt. 1647, Elizabeth, whose family name
has not been found. She appears to have been his only wife. They
resided in New Haven until l660 or 1665, then they moved to
North Haven, and later to that part of Middletown, now Middle-
field, where he d. in 1693. They brought up a family of eight ch.
all of whom are supposed to have left families who have transmitted
the Barnes blood through a dozen generations, and perhaps are at
the present time the most numerous and widely distributed branch
of the family in America.
4 THOMAS BARNES, came to America in the ship " Speed-
well " in 1656, settled in Marlborough, Mass., and m. Abigail Good-
now. Their family of four boys and two girls all left descendants,
who have become numerous and influential throughout our land,
and will be followed in a future work.
5 WILLIAM BARNES, son of William of Eastwich, England,
prob. came first to Mass., thence to Long Island, where he settled
at Easthampton as early as l644. He is generally supposed to have
been the ancestor of most of those of the Barnes name from that
place; but with present light there are reasons to cast doubts upon
that supposition. William is said to have been the oldest son of
William of Eastwich, and under English law would have succeeded
to the inheritance; whereas, it is shown that his brother Charles
took the inheritance from his father in 1658. No mention is found
of a wife of William, or any record of his m. A record is found of
the d. of William Barnes in Guilford, Conn., in 1646, a young man,
of whom no other mention is made, and the theory is entertained
that William of Southampton was the William who died, thus leav-
ing Charles as the oldest son, in 1658.
6 CHARLES BARNES, brother of William (No. 5.) He and
William are supposed to have come together to Easthampton. He
is known as " Charles the schoolmaster," having been the first
schoolmaster in Easthampton. After the death of his father, he
executed the power of attorney for his wife to take possession of his
inheritance in England, and a few years later returned there to live.
No record of their family has been found, but the evidence is con-
6 Barnes Family Year Book, 1907
elusive that tliere were eh. b. there to one of these brothers during
1644 to 1655. It is a tradition among their descendants that they
trace back to Charles.
7 JOSHUA BARNES, a younger brother of William and
Charles, came first to Mass., then to Easthampton, L. I., and resided
there, or at Southampton, where he d. abt. 1690. He was twice m.
and his wives' given names were, first, Prudence, second. Amy. He
left two sons.
8 JOHN BARNES was in Plymouth, Mass., in 1634. His son
Jonatlian m. Eliza Hedge. They had ten ch. (See Hist, of
Bridge water.) John is probably the ancestor of many of the
Barnes name in that section, also Rhode Island and Eastern Conn.
9 RICHARD BARNES came to America in 1639 on the ship
" Jonathan," at the age of ten years, with his mother and step-
father, Thomas Blanchard. His grandmother, Agnes Bent, was of
the party, also. They settled in Sudbury, Mass. In 1657 he went
to Marlborough, Mass., where he m. abt. 1668, Deborah, widow of
Leonard Dix. He settled south of the Pond, his estate remaining
in the family through many generations. He had five ch., four of
whom left descendants.
10 JOHN BARNES was probably a brother or cousin of Thomas
of Marlborough (No. 4.) He settled in Marlborough, Mass., where
he m. in 1664, Johanna , who d. Oct. 29, 1712. He d.
Sept. 8, 1715. He probably had no ch. as his estate was willed
to the ch. of Thomas, his kinsman.
11 ABRAHAM BARNES, son of Richard of Carshalton, Eng-
land, was b. abt. 1665. He came to America, where he had a son
Abraham, who settled near St. Mary's, Md., and two sons and two
daus. were born to him. Neither of the sons married.
12 GEORGE BARNES AND BROTHER CHARLES
BARNES, gt. grandsons of Richard of Carshalton; their father
Charles, was son of Richard, Jr., a brother of Abraham (No. 11.)
In 1795 they came to America, leaving the Barnes names extinct
in Carshalton ; settled in Georgetown, Md. George soon removed to
Springfield, Ky. ; was twice m. ; had ten ch., most of whom died
13 JOHN BARNES was b. in England in 1708; came to Boston,
Mass., in 1730; m. in the same year Hesselton. He and
a son John were soldiers under Gen. Wolfe at Quebec. John, Sr.,
had seven ch. Most of this family, if not all, went to Conn.,
settling iA Wethersfield, now Rocky Hill. John, Jr., served in the
Revolution. (See family rec. in Hist, of Wethersfield.)
14 JAMES BARNES, son of William of Norwich, England, was
impressed into the British army during the Revolution and sent to
Some Immigrant Barnes 7
America ; was taken prisoner by the Americans at the Battle of
Saratoga, and probably sent to the old Newgate prison in Granby,
Conn. He refused to be exchanged or returned to England. He
m. in Conn., and removed to Wilkes-Barre, Penna.
15 JOHN BARNES came to America some time prior to the
Revolution, and settled at Shepardstown, Va. He served during the
Revolution, from Virginia, as a captain; received a shot during the
battle which broke one of his legs, laming him for life. He later
moved to Ohio. His descendants claim him to have been one of the
three first persons to sail on a steamboat.
16 JOSEPH BARNES, brother of Capt. John Barnes (No. 15),
settled in Shepardstown, Va. ; claimed to have been the inventor and
maker of the first steamboat that sailed against the current. After
the first trip of his boat, which carried himself, brother and Rum-
sey, the mechanic, up the James River, he went to England for more
skilled mechanics to build a larger vessel. About this time it was
against the law to take mechanics to America, and he was seized in
England and never permitted to return. Rumsey, therefore, claimed
the invention as his own. A man named Fitch saw his opportunity,
and he also claimed the invention. A long controversy ensued, and
Fitch, by more powerful influence at the Capitol, is said to have had
the advantage, but neither had the honor of sailing his own boat.
Fulton was permitted by friends to examine the mechanism and
measurements of Barnes' boat, stored in the barn of Capt. John
Barnes, and afterward made and sailed the first steamboat of
Joseph Barnes had a son who went back to his father in Eng-
land. He also had a dau. who remained in America. The mother
had previously died.
17 HENRY BARNES, brother of John (No. 15) and Joseph
(No. 16), came to America with them. He served in the Revolution
as a captain; afterward moved to Tenn. Nothing is learned of his
family. Susannah Barnes, a sister of the above brothers, also
came to America. She was mother, or grandmother of Gov. Lucas
18 ROBERT BARNES came to America during the Revolution;
settled in Lancaster Co., Penna. He had two sons and seven daus.
One son and two daus. remained unm. Very little is known of the
19 JACOB BARNES, b. in England more recently than the
others ; came to New York and settled in Kingston, where he lived
and d., leaving two sons and three daus. The daus. all d. unm.

44 Elizabeth Harris (doubtful; not mentioned in father's will).
(Stile's History of Ancient W ethers f eld gives another son,
Thomas, which we regard as an error. Daniel Harris in his will
[Hartford Pro. Ree.] mentions children above, also each grand-
child, and would probably not have omitted another family entirely.
Moreover, the Thomas is said to have come from New London.)

THE BARNES FAMILY OF LONG ISLAND
The record of this family goes back to Edward Barnes of East-
wich and Lyme Regis, Dorset County, England, whose son, Wil-
liam, b. 1580 and d. 1657, was the father of the pioneers who later
came to Long Island. William m. first, Thomasina Howell, dau.
of Richard Howell, and m. second, Thomasina Shepard, dau. of
Owen Shepard, Esq. By his first marriage he had five daus.,
whose names are unknown. By his second marriage he had five
sons and eight daus. A tradition handed down by descendants is
that three of the boys and two girls came to America, and settled
at East and South Hampton, Long Island. These three sons,
William, Charles and Joshua, settled there, but the families of the
two daus. are not known. Owen, another brother, remained in
England. A similarity in names might indicate that Thomas of
New Haven was the missing son of this family, but there is noth-
ing known of the ancestry of the latter, and he is recorded as an
Our only line descending from William and Charles is through
William, the supposed son of Charles, with whom we start.

JOSHUA BARNES OF EAST HAMPTON.
JOSHUA BARNES, brother of William and Charles, of East
Hampton, as far as can be ascertained, left but two children (sons),
and it is stated that he removed to lower Connecticut towns or to
Westchester, N. Y. But the statement is doubted, and it is thought
that it must have been a younger Joshua who thus removed, and as-
sistance is desired in tracing this branch of the family. The state-
ments here given are to furnish information for research, and for
the purpose of connecting and verifying same.
Joshua Barnes was twice married, his first wife's name being
Prudence, the second Amy. He d. about I690. Children:
2 William Barnes.
3 Samuel Barnes.
2 WILLIAM BARNES, m. first, before 1677, Martha (her
surname may have been Horton) ; m. second, before 1693, Hannah
(whose surname may have been Budd). About 1685 he moved to
Westchester County, N. Y., and d. about 1712. Children:
4 William Barnes.
5 Thomas Barnes. * * *
6 Sarah Barnes. * * *
7 Underbill Barnes, b. 1695.
Probably the three younger children are by the second wife, who
m. second, Daniel Clark, as in 1712 Underbill Barnes chose his
stepfather, Daniel Clark, and his uncle, Joseph Budd, guardians.
3 SAMUEL BARNES, m. Nov. 9, 1676, Patience Williams, dau.
of Robert and Sarah (Washburn) Williams. He d. Feb. 21, 1693.

Mrs. Gruber takes an active interest in genealogical research.
She was the first woman to subscribe as a life member of the
Barnes Family Association, and the first person to make a donation
to assist in defraying the expenses of collecting these records. She
traces back to many of the foremost of the Pilgrim ancestors of
New England. Among her ancestors were Francis Bell, one of the
first settlers of Stamford, Conn. ; William and Jonathan Tuttle,
early of New Haven ; the Rev. Peter Buckley, who is closely con-
nected with the history of Concord, Mass., having bought the land
of the Indians, and named it after his English home. He was
known as the " father of the flock," and was the minister who ad-
dressed the troops before the battle of Concord, where were fired

48 Barnes Family Year Book, 1907
Martha (Mills) Barnes, outliving his sister, Mrs. Martha Messen-
ger only three weeks. His whole life of over ninety years, had
been spent in the immediate vicinity, and his death was caused by
a general breaking down of his system only a few weeks previous.
His illness was free from pain, and his death was very peaceful.
On his father's death, when Allen was 1 1 years old, he was taken
by Jared Deming in the Sandy Brook district of Coldbrook, with
whom he remained until he bought for himself a farm on which he
remained for seventy years. He was the father of ten children ;
only two of them surviving him, Sherman A. of Winsted, and Clif-
ford W. of Glen Brook, Conn. Besides these he leaves five grand-
children, three great-grandchildren and many nephews and nieces
to mourn his loss. A respected citizen has passed away ; a stren-
uous life of nearly a century has ended to be restored again, we
trust, at the last great day when the Master calls " Come Home."
JOHN BARNES McQUEEN, b. March 13, 1850, d. April l6,
1904, in New Haven Conn., was the only son of Samuel and Susan
E. (Barnes) McQueen. He leaves a widow and son, one sister and
an invalid mother to mourn his loss. He was in business in New
Haven and was a sergeant in the second company of Governor's
Foot Guards. He was a descendant of Thomas Barnes of New
Haven in the seventh generation, and married, June 10, 1873,
Martha E. Baldwin of Whitneyville. His mother, Susan E. Barnes
was the oldest of two daughters of Jared and Sally (Hemingway)
Barnes, b. May 12, 1825; his grandfather, Jared Barnes, Jr., was

Barnes, whose line has been given.
MRS. LUCY ESTELLE (HILLS) BARNES, widow of John
J. Barnes, an honored member of the Barnes Family Association,
died at her home in Southington, Conn., March 22, 1905. Her
husband was a descendant in the eighth generation from William
Barnes of Long Island, and was a life-long resident of Southington,
being a farmer and fruit-grower. Mrs. Barnes was a very talented
and influential woman, a leader in all benevolent movements, and
a member of the Grange in Southington ; in recognition of her
abilities, she was made lecturer of the State Grange, in which posi-
tion she rendered valuable assistance to the order. She was a
woman beloved and honored in every walk of life, and her loss will
be lamented wherever her name has been recorded and her genial
MRS. MARTHA (BARNES) MESSENGER, widow of Horace
Henry Messenger, whose life was sacrificed in the prison pen
at Andersonville during the Civil War, died at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. Erastus Hart in New Britain, Conn., Nov. 23, 1906,
in her 84th year, after a long and useful life. She was born in
Barkhamsted, Conn., July 9, 1823, youngest but one of the ten
children of Anson and Martha (Mills) Barnes. Her father died
before she had completed her fourth year, and she shared the hard-
ships of the large and industrious family in its early trials.
Married in 1841 she was the mother of eight children, only two
of whom survive her; her only son died at the age of fifteen from
wounds received from the accidental discharge of his gun while
hunting; one daughter died in infancy, the others grew to woman-
hood and married. S. A. Barnes, her nephew, writes, " The home
of Aunt Martha in Barkhamsted was the Mecca for family gather-
ings, as she was a royal entertainer, endowed with social qualities
rarely attained. Surrounded by her own family, with the large
families of her brothers and sisters living near, I well remember
the delightful times we used to enjoy at her fireside listening to the
old-time melodies as they were sung by the children, who were all
natural musicians, having inherited the talent from their mother
who was proficient in both vocal and instrumental music." Of her
brothers and sisters, only one, Allen Barnes of Winsted, survived
her, and he only by three weeks. Both attended the Barnes
Family Reunion at Lake Compounce in 1903, and were the oldest
persons in that gathering; we remember them as active and social.
Their father, Anson Barnes, was the oldest son of Israel and Su-
sannah (Hills) Barnes, b. March 1, 1783, whose ancestral line has

WILLIAM D. BARNES, a life-long resident of the town of
Newburg, and one of the most prominent citizens, died at his home
in the district of Middle Hope, Oct. 18, 1904. We quote from the
Newburg Journal: " Mr. Barnes early devoted himself to the cul-
ture of small fruits, and for many years has been an accepted au-
thority on horticulture. He was a member of the Eastern New
York Horticultural Society from its organization; a member also
of the Western New York Horticultural Society, and of the New-
burg Bay Society. He was a man of education, and a great reader.
His knowledge of agricultural and horticultural matters was ex-
tensive, and gained for him a widespread reputation. He was an
easy and. ready speaker, and his thorough knowledge of his subject
always commanded the close attention of his listeners. He was
prominent in public affairs, and held many offices of trust and
honor, among which was that of Almshouse Commissioner of the
town and city of Newburg. It was largely through his influence
that the Children's Home was established, and he drafted the plans
for its management.
" Under Governor Flower, Mr. Barnes received an appointment
on the Board of Control of the N. Y. State Agricultural Experiment
Station at Geneva, which position he honored for six years. Gover-
nor Odell appointed him as a State delegate to the National Farm-
ers' Congress, which met in the west. He was closely connected
with the Orange County Agricultural Society, of which he was for
many years Vice-President and Superintendent of the fruit depart-
Mr. Barnes was a descendant of the Long Island Family. His
father was born at Litchfield, Conn. His ancestral line will be
given from his son in a succeeding number of our publication. He
was b. in Newburg, N. Y., Oct. 16, 1828; m. Jan. 25. I860, Eliza-
beth Carpenter, who d. Jan. 29, 1890. They had five ch., Edwin
W., who succeeded to his father's business ; Mary, who married and
resides at Marlborough, N. Y. ; George D., who lives in St. Louis,
Mo.; John S., living at Newburg, and Nathaniel H. who d. in 1886.
AMON BRADLEY, one of the oldest and most prominent citizens
of Southington, was born in that town, Feb. 20, 1812, and traces
his ancestry back to Isaac and Elizabeth Bradley of Branford,
Conn. The name of Isaac Bradley first appears on the Branford
records in 1674, where he is mentioned as a " sojourner at New
Haven," and the town granted him a house lot of two acres at
Canoe Brook. In 1683 he removed to East Haven, where he died
Jan. 12, 1712, aged 62 years, and his wife died Jan, 3, 1713, aged
Samuel Bradley, son of Isaac, was born in 1686, and was married
Jan. 17, 1715, to Sarah, daughter of Jacob Robinson of East Haven.
Daniel Bradley, son of Samuel, and the grandfather of our sub-
ject, was married Nov. 28, 1751, to Sarah Judd, daughter of Ben-
jamin and Sarah (Hollister) Judd of Glastonbury. She died Nov.
19, 1764, after giving birth to her sixth child, the father of our
subject, by reason of which he was called Ichabod. In 1774 these
children became heirs to a large property from the grandfather,
Benjamin Judd. Daniel Bradley was again married Feb. 12, 1767,
his second union being with Mehitable Hemingway of East Haven.
He lived in East Haven until 1779, when he removed to Southing-
ton, where he subsequently purchased a large farm, and there
made his home until 1798, when he removed to Litchfield.
Ichabod Bradley, father of our subject, was born in East Haven,
Nov. 10, 1764, and was married, Nov. 27, 1788, to Miss Abigail
Moore. The founder of the Moore family in the New World was
Deacon John Moore, who settled in Dorchester, Mass., in 16S0,
and removed to Windsor, Conn., with the first settlers, about 1635.
He frequently served as juror, and was deputy to the General
Court from Windsor in l662, l665, 1667 and 1674. He lived in
that part of Windsor now known as Simsbury, and died Sept. 18,
1677. His son, John Moore, was born in Windsor, Dec. 5, 1645,
and died there. On Sept. 21, 1664, he married Hannah GofFe, who
died April 4, 1697, and on Dec. 17, 1701, he married Martha
Farnsworth. His son, John Moore, was born in Windsor, June
26, 1665, and married Abigail Strong. Their son John, the grand-
father of Mrs. Ichabod Bradley, was born March 21, 1694, and
died at Lake George, N. Y., Aug. 12, 1758. On Dec. 2, 1724, he
married Abigail Stoughton, a daughter of Capt. Thomas and Abi-
gail (Edwards) Stoughton; the latter was a sister of Rev. Timothy
Edwards, the father of the celebrated Dr. Jonathan Edwards.
Roswell Moore, the father of Mrs. Bradley, was born in East
Windsor, May 17, 1728, and located in that part of Farmington
now known as Southington, June 30, 1775. He married Desire
Dunham, daughter of Gideon Dunham, formerly of Martha's Vine-
yard. He died Dec. 13, 1794. In 1779 Ichabod Bradley came
52 Barnes Family Year Book, 1907
with his father to Southington, where he successfully engaged in
farming: throughout the remainder of his life. He died Oct. 13,
1832, aged 68 years, and his wife, April 1, 1832, aged 63. Their
children were Polly, wife of Benjamin Andrews; Wyllys, who
married Fanny Stedman; Roswell, who married Julia Newell;
William, who married Sarah Gilbert; Diadamia, wife of Julius
Hart; Hial, who married Eliza Gilbert; Charles, who married
Delia Stedman; and Amon, our subject.
Amon Bradley was reared upon a farm, and received a good
common school and academic education. He continued to work
upon the old homestead until his twentieth year, and then engaged
in general merchandising in Southington for about two years, after
which, he spent two winters in the South, traveling as a peddler
of dry goods, and Yankee notions through Virginia and North Caro-
lina. In 1835 he again embarked in general merchandising, and
continued in that business until 1866, for some years having Merritt
N. Woodruff as a partner, the firm name being Amon Bradley & Co.
Mr. Bradley has represented the ^tna Fire Insurance Co. in
Southington for over forty years, and there are few enterprises in
the town that he is not interested in, but since his retirement from
merchandising in 1866, he has given his principal attention to his
real estate interests. He has acquired a handsome property through
economy, thrift, and perseverence, and has become one of the pros-
perous and substantial citizens of the community.
On Oct. 9, 1836, Mr. Bradley married Miss Sylvia Barnes of
Southington, and to whom were born three children: Franklin B.;
Alice B., deceased wife of Norman A. Barnes; and Emma M., wife
of Edward S. Yeomans. Truman Barnes, ]\Irs. Bradley's father,
was born April 23, 1783, and was a prominent farmer of Southing-
ton. He was married Jan. 3, 1805, to Eowly Barrett, a daughter
of William and Ruth (Coggswell) Barrett. His father, Jonathan
Barnes, was born Feb. 2, 1731, and was married Aug. 4, 1757, to
Elizabeth Woodruff, daughter of Hezekiah and Sarah (Macon)
Woodrufl" of Southington. Jonathan Barnes lived on East Street
for some time, but later removed to Kensington road. His parents
were Stephen and Martha (Wheadon) Barnes of Branford, who
at an early day removed to Southington, where he died March 27,
1777, and his wife March 18, 1773, she being the first one interred
in Plantsville cemetery. Stephen Barnes was a son of Stephen and
Mary Barnes, early settlers of Branford, Conn., formerly of Long
There are few men in Southington, that have done more for its
commercial interests and its growth and development than Mr.
Bradley. When the Lewis Academy was erected, he was one the
building committee^ and by his zeal and enterprise, he, with others,
promoted the cause and secured the charter of the Southington
Savings Bank, of whose first board of directors he was a member,
having continued as such to the present time. Politically he has
always been a staunch Democrat. He was Postmaster of Southing-
ton for twelve years, and represented the town in the State Legis-
lature in 1863, 1864 and 1866. He is the oldest living Freemason
in the place, having joined Friendship Lodge, No. 33, F. & A. M.,
of Southington, about 1850, and he is honored and respected
Mr. and Mrs. Bradley enjoyed a long and happy wedded life;
they celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage in 1886.
The sixtieth in 1896, the sixty-fifth in 1901; no death having oc-
cured in their family in all there years ; they lived to nearly reach
the seventieth year of wedded life; united in life, united they have
passed to their reward.
It will be seen that many names in this, our first number, are
followed by three stars (***). Will not our friends make a
united effort to trace and obtain information which will place us in
communication with descendants of each, if any succeeded them?
Their children should be given in our next number; hence the neces-
sity for immediate action.
We have also many fragmentary records relating to individual
members and families of the Barnes blood, some alluding to single
persons, others giving records through several generations. Space
permitting, we will give a page or more in each number to the
publication of the history of the earliest person, or family alluded
to in each separate record, and we ask the co-operation of all in
tracing their ancestors back to the earliest arrival in America, by
which means we shall no doubt connect many with those lost mem-
bers of our fraternity, who have gone forth from the paternal roof,
and all trace of whom has become obliterated by the lapse of time.
To each record we shall give a number, as we now have it. Many
numbers have been found to connect with others, and have reached
far back into the past. Others will continue to do so until we are
enabled to connect the whole family in an unbroken line, if we are
diligent in our search.
