Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 427, Round Grove Township, White County, Indiana

"SAMUEL D. BARCUS was born in Butler County, Ohio, December 6, 1825, and is the eldest of the ten children born to WILLIAM and MARIA (BUTLER) BARCUS, natives of Virginia and Georgia, and of English and Irish descent respectively. When but a small boy in 1807, WILLIAM BARCUS removed with his parents to Belmount County, Ohio; about 1818, the family removed to Butler County, where WILLIAM married and engaged in farming for several years; he then came to Indiana and farmed in Warren, Tippecanoe, Cass and White Counties for about eight years. From 1837 to 1840, he was a hotel-keeper in Tippecanoe and Fountain Counties, and then, until 1860, he farmed in Indiana and Illinois; he then engaged in merchandising in Southeastern Missouri until the fall of 1861, when he came to this county, and died a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church in June, 1866. SAMUEL D. BARCUS, at the age of twenty-one, left his home and for one year farmed on shares in Tippecanoe County, Indiana; was then construction foreman on the L. & I. R. R. one year, and in 1850 came to White County and farmed on shares in Liberty, Union, and Prairie Townships until 1859, when he came to this township and bought the farm of 160 acres on which he still resides. May 15, 1849, he married ELIZA HUGHES, daughter of HUGH and HANNAH (WILSON) HUGHES, and a native of Greene County, Pennsylvania. To this union there have been born nine children, of whom three boys and two girls are yet living. MR. BARCUS is a Republican, and he and family are members of the Baptist Church."
