My husband's grandfather was born May 8 1849, somewhere in Switzerland.
He came to USA with parents, father James ?, in 1853. Here in the USA his name was ROMAN RICHARD BARNES. The Swiss General Office said that Barnes was not a Swiss name and it was probably changed when the came here.
We first find him in Indiana and he had no wife but two sons, one born in Ohio. He married Lillie May Shores May 1880 in Randolph Co., Indiana, and had 7 more children.
We have heard he had a brother who came to Indiana with him who later moved to Ohio.
Any help would be appreciated.
