All info was gathered from death certs of Joseph Barnes (the elder), and Joseph & Julia

Am wishing to correspond with those working on this BARNES family to see if there might be a
connection with my Washington County New York Barns / Barnes, (Susannah or Susanna)
who married David CONGDON. There is a connection to Palmyra, Jefferson Co. Wisconsin which is very close to Spring Prairie, Walworth Co WI. My Susannah was also in Clinton Co, New York. She was born approximately 1775.

Thank you,
