I am Junior of my father, William Barnish. My father had two younger brothers, Dennis and Ken of which Ken has passed. My father's parents Lillian and Albert Barnish, both deceased, were both from the North Eastern part of New Jersey.( I believe Garfield and Lodi area). My father was born in Garfield as well. Tracing the Barnish name, my grandfather, Albert Barnish had a brother John,,also deceased for some time now (Uncle John had 3 children and a wife, Clara) . The last person at this end that i knew was my grandfather's mother, my great grandmother Sophia Suska who passed away at approx 90 years old. I remember very little speaking with her but remembered she also had relocated from New Jersey to my hometown, Syracuse, New York where my grandparents had taken care of her until her death. I cannot be exact of where she originated from before New Jersey but her English was broken and had a very distinct Slovik accent. Barnish is a very unique sur name and I find it very interesting just to see the areas around the world that carry this name.
