I'm hoping that someone might have a John Barnes that would have moved from Southampton Co. to Greensville Co. VA. This man died between 1791 and 1793 over in Greensville. His son John married Elizabeth Bass the daughter of Arthur Bass and Agnis Morris Alsobrook. Arthur Bass the son of Charles Bass of Southampton Co. This line is documented with court records.

For several years I've searched in the Greensville area for information regarding John Barnes Sr. without much success. I believe that he was originally of the Surry Co. VA Barnes. Since several of my lines did move from Surry to Southampton Co., it could be that this John Barnes did also.

If anyone might have this John Barnes in their lines, would you please contact me? John Barnes' granddaughter Lucy married William B. Saunders. They moved from Sussex Co. to Southampton to live out their lifes. A Southampton Mortality Schedule confirms this family.
