Barnes, SallieWF5boarderAR
Notes: Sallie Evelyn Barnes was my husband's grandmother. Family oral history said she was raised by Nancy Cannon. My guess: Nancy Forbes and Nancy Cannon are the same person. Another guess: Jane Forbes was sister to Joseph D. Forbes. Jane Forbes, born NC, is listed as mother of Sallie Evelyn Barnes on Sallie's death certificate. Sallie married William Thomas Barnett, hence the Barnett connection. Another guess: the age on Jane Forbes' census record in NC may be smudged and meant to be 11 instead of 19, thus making Joseph her father and Nancy her sister. Thus Grandmother Winnie Forbes has "custody" of Sallie in 1880.
