I am looking for anyone with family connections to George W Barnes, b. 1830 in CT. Moved to Petoskey, Emmet, MI between 1879-1880. He died in 1912.

His obituary lists his brother Reuben as living in Plymouth, MI and his sister, Mary Emma Blakely, as living in Detroit.

George was married to Eliza Jane Rogers from Walton, Delaware County, NY. They may have had 2 or 3 chidren, but I can only find documentation on Flora Jane Barnes.

George, Eliza, and Flora are all buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Petoskey.
