Both Barnabus and Cary Traylor enlisted in the 18th KY Regiment for the Civil War, for the union. I found physical descriptions of these men online at footnote.com
Cary Traylor 5 feet, 11 inches, dark hair, blue eyes B. Bath CO, KY, occupation: Farmer Enlisted at Falmouth on 17 Nov 1861
Barnabus Traylor five feet, six inches age 40 when enlisted in 1861 Light complexion, blue eyes and auburn hair Born in Bath CO, KY
I have always wondered how I came to have auburn hair. My mother's mother and grandmother both had auburn hair, but since red hair is recessive I wondered who in my father's background had red hair. I never envisioned Barnabus Traylor with red hair, but he is undoubtedly the person who supplied the extra red haired gene for me to have this nice auburn hair. So thanks Barnabus.
