Bety Barnes has already told you about the new stone there. According to a booklet prepared for the Barnes reunion of 1998 by Dr. Letcher Blackwell Barnes, it is probable that Asa Covington Barnes and George Lyttleton Barnes, both of whom died as children, are also there. My probably unreliable recollection is that there were fieldstone markers there on some graves--that is, simple stones straight from the fields, not carved or engraved, and that there were no graves marked with any sort of identification. Letcher Barnes did intense and scrupulous research and many Barnes descendants still live nearby. From the tone of his comments "e.g. Letitia Hardy Barnes, "is presumably buried in the grave adjacent to her husband," I'd guess there is no listing of those buried there.
