Have copy of the will of my great-grandfather, John Ralston Barnhart, dated June 21, 1935.The probate page is signed by his 2nd wife, Sidney (Campbell) Barnhart and his 3 daughters from his first marriage to Anna B Welton.
Trying to find information regarding the youngest daughter, Anna Belle.Her older sister Margaret Priscilla married Raymond L KLUGH, a son of William Francis KLUGH b. Aug 1885.
Margaret and Raymond had 5 children: Ruth, Helen, John, Leona and Mary Jane_ all born 1917-1926.Unknown if any of their children or descendants remain in the Worthington area.
It is known that Anna Belle married her cousin Albert St. John Barnhart in 1920, later moving to Karns City, Butler County where they had 5 children_ Alberta Jane, Edna Mae, Sally, Caroline and Arthur_ all children born 1921-1929_ all deceased before 1991.
Albert and Anna Belle separated and divorced soon after the 1930 Census was taken and the 5 children were fostered out to Mrs. McCafferty of Butler County.
Obituary of Anna Belle's father states that she was living in Brackenridge although other sources related she was living in Saxonburg.Soon after her father's death it is reported that she moved to Cleveland, OH.Her oldest sister, Edith Pearl Pihl lived there with her husband and 2 daughters.
There is no longer any information from Anna Belle'schildren to trace her movements.It is believed that she remarried but facts and details, if there are any, are completely unknown.
