Hello Kevin,

I found your blog while doing some "googling" for my wife's family. Given your background, I'll take the risk to ask if you might have some suggestions.

My wife's maiden's name is Barnes. I've been researching this line for several years using Ancestry.com records and also making 2 trips to court houses in Bristol Virginia and more recently to Salem Virginia and record repositories in Roanoke and Botetourt county.

I've traced my wife's line back to Aaron Barnes who lived approximately 1805 (between 1800 and 1810 birth). Aaron Barnes was a pretty influential resident of Salem. He is in all the early Roanoke County histories as a tavern owner, petitioner for the formation of Roanoake County, a constable of the new county and even a State Assemblyman from 1843 - 1844 when he apparently took ill and resigned. He died in Feb 1845. I believe it is very likely that his father was Thomas Barnes and his mother was Ingabo Ruddell of Botetourt County. The family naming conventions draws heavily from the family names using family names such as Byrd. Thomas Barnes appears to be a Junior.

Thomas and Ingabo married in 1799. They appear in the 1810 - 1840 federal census records and consistently the age ranged indicate that Thomas would have been born between 1770 - 1780. The records of Orange County, Augusta County and Botetourt County (which all covered the area near Fincastle and Roanoke) from 1740 - 1785 are filled with references to Thomas Barnes as a land owner (at Tinker Creek off of the Roan Oak), road surveyor and tithable supporter of road work, jury member, witness to deeds etc.

I've found him in the Southwest Annuls of Virginia, as a Vestryman in 1770 (which maybe means he was Anglican/Episcopal).

I've about exhausted the Ancestry.com records and it looks to me that the courthouse records are pretty well convered in these databases.

I live reasonably close to Roanoke and am thinking of making another trip for some in person research. I'm aware of the Botetourt records in Fincastle and looked there before. I haven't done much with regard to pre 1770 for Augusta County or Orange County before then.

Do you have any suggestions as to where to go from here?

Thanks,

Bart Breen
