This is from one of those county biographies that were such a fixture of the late 1800's; everyone in them was sturdy son of the soil or a captain of industry. I strongly suspect, but haven't proven yet, that one of Jehu's daughters married a man whose surname was Craig. If some kind soul could provide me with proof, I'd be grateful.
History of Sonoma County Copyright 1879 Alley, Bowen and Co
Barnes, Jehu. Whose portrait appears in this work, was born in Warren County, Tennessee, January 29 1829. When but a mere child his parents moved to Missouri, where they resides one year, and thence to Pike County, Illinois, where the subject of this sketch received his education and was reared a farmer. In 1856 he left his parents and emigrated to California by the Panama route, landing in San Francisco December 16, 1856. He came directly to this county and located upon his present estate in Vallejo Township, where he has since remained, except one season, which he spent in Mendocino County.
Mr. Barnes has held the position of Road-master for the last eight years. He married April 26, 1851, Miss Sarah A. Veal, a native of Missouri born February 3, 1831. By this union they have four children: Mary E., Henry, Henrietta and Martha.
Notes: The current city of Vallejo is in Solano County. Both Sonoma and Solano counties are original ones, so the city didn't start out as the township and split. I don't know if the boundaries changed or the Sonoma township was renamed and the Solano city grew.
Jehu is on the AF with AFN: 1RZN-PXR. His wife is there with AFN: 1RZN-N4M. He died 18 Jun 1897, she 8 Apr 1897.
The portrait shows a large, stong fellow with a full head of dark hair and a full beard. Actually, as drawn, he looks like he should be squatting by a stream somewhere, batting salmon with a paw.
