Barnes Family from Stewart Co. TN to Madison Co. IL

There was a Barnes family who resided in the Bunker Hill and Woodburn area of Macoupin County IL (county just north of Madison County). I have a history book of Bunker Hill in which a member of the Barnes provided much information. I'm getting ready to go on vacation but will check when I return if I don't get a chance this evening. Your Barnes family names look familiar but I'm not sure if my memory is serving me correctly.

My name is Janice Foster. I don't know if your Barnes are related to my Barnes, but it never hurts to check every lead. My Great-greatgrandparents are Isaiah & Margaret (Roberts) Barnes they come from Gallatin, Tennessee. I do not know if they stopped in Madison Co., on their way to Texas Co., Missouri, which is about 170 miles from St. Louis. They had 9 children: James Marion, Nancy Athelia ( my Great-grandmother), Martha Ann, Emaline H., Ninian R., Evan Wshington, Sterling Rains, Grant Isaiah, Sarah Alice. Do any of these names sound familiar?

Saw your post and was curious. I am a desc of a Barnes family
from NC in 1800, IN in 1820, Lawrence co., IL in 1830, Jasper co.
Mo. in 1840, Pulaski Co,MO in 1850 and finally Macoupin Co., IL in 1860.
What caught my eye was that you had a "Ninian" Barnes. In this family that
was a name used over and over but seems pretty uncommon. any

My great-grandmother was Luda (Lula) Jackson Barnes (ca 1183-1972) and her father was Barney Wesley Barnes (no birth dates) who married Mary Ann Wyatt. I think they lived in Houston County, TN and later moved to Collinsville, Ill. which I believe is in Madison County. Hope this helps.

Surnames: Barnes, Wolfe
My name is Ven Griva. I was born in Benld, Macoupin County, Ill., but only lived there as an infant. My 3X great-grandfather was John Wesley Barnes, 1844-1922. He served as the constable of Honey Point Township in Macoupin County, Ill., and was probably a Civil War veteran. His brothers were James A. Barnes, 1845-1918, and Ninian Edward Barnes, 1849-1921. Ninian appears also to have been a Civil War vet. My 2x great-grandfather was Charles Marion Barnes 1865-1953, who farmed in Macoupin County. He always claimed, my father says, to have been a "proud blue-bellied yankee." His daughter, Mabel Leona Barnes married my great-grandfather, Carl Wolfe, 1895-1935. They too farmed in Macoupin County. Their daughter, my grandmother, was Beryl Wolfe, 1914-1976. I believe my Barnes Family arrived in Honey Point after the Black Hawk War, left for Missouri, and returned to Macoupin County between the 1850 and the 1860 censuses. I would be interested in more information about your history book of Bunker Hill and the Barnes who provided information for part of it.
