I don't know if I am related to the Wellborn's or not, but my ancestor named a child Marshall Johnson Wellborn Barnes. This Marshall was the son of John Sanders Barnes, born in 1814 in NC and Sarah Ann Owens. He was born in 1860. I have been looking at both the Wellborn and Sanders families for clues. It is possible John Sander's mother is Frances Smith in 1850 in his home, her death is also recorded in the family bible. Frances was born in Va according to the census in 1785. John may have had a sister named Jane born in 1810 who married a Horton. The Barnes I am sure lived in Georgia before coming to Russell County, Alabama.
