My G-grandfather, William Samuel Barnwell, b. 09Oct1847, Caswell Co., NC, d. 30Sept1937, Caswell Co., NC married Mary Jane Miles, d/o Harry and Mary W. Miles on 16 Nov. 1873.
"Sam" Barnwell lived in the Frogsboro/Prospect Hill area of Caswell Co., NC. He is buried at the "Barnwell-Thaxton" Cemetery located off state rd. 1715 (Russell Loop Rd) which is off Ridgeville Rd. Henry Speck Thaxton of the 4th NC Cavalry was also buried in the cemetery. Three of Sam Barnwell's sons married three of H.S. Thaxton's daughters.
The United Daughters of the Confederacy was organized in Nashville, Tn. in 1894, The Yanceyville chapter was organized on Feb. 21, 1908. A yearly picnic was held on July 10th. In 1917, 27 veterans were present. 1918, 17 were present, 1919, 21 were present, 1920, 14 were present. In 1921, at the picnic and unveiling of the confederate monument in front of the court house, there were 19 members present. In 1929 and 1930, there were only 5 that attended. Only 3 were present in 1931 and 1932. These three were W.S. Barnwell, N.J. Palmer ands W.P. Ray.

I do have several pictures of him.
