|Abstracts of Wills, Wilson County, North Carolina, 1855-1899
by J. Robert Boykin, III. Perfect or spiral binding, 120 pages, 1992
by Joan Howell, Editor
Paperback, 179 pages, 2011Joan Howell, a Barnes family researcher, was given Hugh B. Johnston’s Barnes family research files before his death. Among those records were typed narratives of those members of the family that he had researched extensively. Ms. Howell has typed and organized these into alphabetical order and fully indexed their names. She also included the extensive study, “Which Edward Barnes was the Son of James, Isle of Wight County, Virginia?” by Margaret Van Ness Nelson, Barbara Barnes Monroe and Carol LaPorte, which was included in the March 2000 issue of Trees of Wilson. This study disputes the previously accepted ancestry of Edward Barnes of Edgecombe County and throws the local Barnes line of descent from Virginia into question.
