Many thanks for your kind acknowledgment of my input. I just wanted to let you know (the only way I can at present) that your e-mail to me has for some unknown reason not come through yet. I use two e-mail addresses (I check mail at both of them): email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't mind giving these out on a forum such as this; I think it highly unlikely they will get abused ...
I have several ideas and theories about this family, which ideas I'm eager to discuss.
For my part, I'm grateful for the reference to the estate records of Jethro Barnes Sr., which mentioned my ancestor Elizabeth Barnes, "wife of John Marchman". That was a revelation for me.
