Jessie Barger

I have checked several posted Family Trees. The reason I am putting this in a comment is because there is conflicting information with the different Family Trees and the Official U.S. Census Records. To get to the correct information, more research of records will have to be done, but this will give anyone doing the research a heads up. This Jessie Barger needs to be designated as Sr., because he had a son named Jessie Barger. He was most likely born around 1811, maybe February 05th, in North Carolina. He may have been born in Hickory, Catawba County, but not in Lincoln County, N.C... The census records will not support Lincoln. He does not show up the census as Sr., and Jr. does not show up as Jr., but Jr. is in the 1865 Ala/US Census. He may have died July 16, 1879 in Cottondale, Alabama. His father may have been Simeon Fisher Barger (1778 - 1860). His mother may have been Christina Bolick Bolch (1777 - 1860). His wife was Leah Harmon (about 1806 - 1896) and maybe married in 1831. I will list all of the children listed in all of the Family Trees that I have seen, but I will only put an '*' in front of the ones that I can verify in U.S. Census Records. ???Barbary (1832 - 1890) Polly (1834 - 1838) This may be correct because the age was only 4 years old and may never have shown up in a census. *David (1837 - 1912) ???Semmes Samuel (1839 - ) ???Levina (1841 - 1860) (1841 - 1922) *Lucy (1842 - ) *Jessie (1844 - 1917) Records do use "Brown" in his name. This may have been a nick name. He would be a "Jr." ???George (1846 - 1860) *Amanda (1847 - ) *Agnes (1849 - ) *Rebecca (1850 - ) *Leah Rosanna (1851 - 1890) This Tree has a lot of Official Records, do not rely on Family Trees, and can be done with some effort and be real close to correct. If old Family Bibles are available or other official documents this Tree can be filled in very nicely. I am doing this for Sharon Price Garrison, whose Mother, Imogene, was a Barger. I am Wain Reily and have done genealogy research for over 50 years. I can be contacted through
