I'd be interested in any info you have on this family. I believe Brooks' father William may be the brother of my GGGrandfather, Thomas W. Barnes, born 1820 in Williamsport, Maury County. Thanks, Scott

Surnames: Barnes, Brooks, Williams, Fletcher, Skinner
This is my husband’s family I am researching and this is all I have to date.

Does anyone know where the name Wakefield (as in Brooks Wakefield Barnes) originated? Brooks was his mother’s maiden name. Could the name Wakefield be another family last name? If so, who?

I have no siblings for William Charles Barnes at this time.

Starting with:
Johnnie Vera Barnes, b 1907 d 1994 – m Hosea Emmitt Skinner

William Joshua Barnes, b 1869 d 1927 – m Ida Grinston Fletcher

Brooks Wakefield Barnes, b 1843 d 1913 – m Eugenia Gant Williams

William Charles Barnes, b 1814 d 1850 – m Mariah Brooks

William Barnes, b ? d ? – m ? Unconfirmed
