I have this in my data.. there is more if anyone is interested.
I have Solomon W. Barnes listed as the son of John Barnes d: about 1718 & Ann unknown. Siblings listed are John and Sarah.
That's all I have on them. If anyone has more information on this family I would like to correspond with them.
Solomon W. Barnes, who lived some four miles west of Cadiz,
and near the Mount Pleasant Church, was a good man. He was not related
to the Rev. Joseph Barnes, though was a leading member of the same
Church. He was one of the earliest settler of that section, coming I think
from South Carolina and settling there long before Trigg county was
organized. He was I think one amongst the best men I ever knew. He was
a small man with a pleasing countenance, and was seemingly the
embodiment of goodness, was a plain, meek, modest, quiet Christian. He
was a small farmer, without much education, and dressed very plainly. It
was said that he was one of the few who made his promise good amongst,
or out of, the large number who promised God that if he would spare their
lives at the time of the terrible earthquake in 1812 that they would
thereafter love and serve him.
