In surfing around in my research, I came across this post. I am a great grandson of Robert H. Barner, also. My line is through Lalla Dewdrop Barner Bryant(1892-1961), wife of R.A. Bryant. I was raised in Fordyce and visited with all the Barners in Ramsey. Spent many a afternoon in Uncle Forrest Barner's feed store and Aunt Annie would give me ice cream when we visited her and Uncle Maurice.
I realize this is an old post so I am going to try to send a regular email to the old address.
