In the 1860 census material, there is a Jeremiah Jones and family in Liberty Twp., Ross Co., OH. If this is Barnabas & Elizabeth's son, maybe this is where the family lived in OH. Unfortunately, Heritage Quest Online does not have the 1850 census material indexed and they do not show a Liberty Twp. in Ross Co. in 1850.

Thanks. Looking for Barnabas' parents which I think might be impossible. Any additional information is greatly appreciated.
