Regarding Susan Barnes - November 1857-September 1906
Seek parents and a family connection.
Susan Barnes was born in Alabama in November 1857. Her parents are unknown. She was the mother of ten children. I was told that she used a spinning wheel and then took the thread and made cloth on a loom. She then used this cloth to make clothes for her family.
Susan is buried in the Appalachian foothills in Smithville Cemetery, Monroe County, Mississippi, beside a massive magnolia tree.
My informant was her son Walter Jay Pugh. His memory was good. He told me that his mother was an orphan along with her sister Fanny. I have not found their parents. I believe the children should show up on the 1870 AL Census Index. I do not have access to that census record. The following records show Susan:
