Searching the Old Man’s Registration for World War II, 1942 – Ernest H. Barnes

U.S. World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942 record for Ernest Howard Barnes - Source:  ancestry.com

Today’s tip is to remember to search through the World War II draft registrations for your ancestors that were too old to serve in active duty. This record for Ernest Howard Barnes from the 1942 Selective Service Registration shows his age to be 57. The copy was through the database on ancestry.com, and although it is a paid subscription service, it is also available for free at Family Search, from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The Family Search website gives a description of what was called the “Old Man’s Registration”.

“This draft registration, called the Fourth Registration, or Old Man’s Registration, was held on April 27, 1942. The purpose of this registration was to collect information on industrial capacity and skills of men who were born between April 27, 1877 and February 16, 1897 (ages 45 to 64). This draft registration was not intended to be used for military service but to provide a complete inventory of manpower resources in the United States that could be utilized for national service during World War II.”  Source: http://familysearch.org/learn/

During World War II there were six different draft registrations, and these original records are stored at the National Archives at St. Louis, MO.  These records are also available to search at the branches of the National Archives. Very often the men from this age group also have a World War I Draft Registration Record card. Below is the second page, the Registrar’s Report. Here is the the link for Ernest Howard Barnes’ 1942 registration, through Family Search.  https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-266-11768-137024-30?cc=1861144

This photo is of Ernest Howard Barnes (1885-1951) holding his first grandchild, the son of Barbara and Ernest Barnes, Jr., on 10 May 1943. With him are his wife, Helen Barnes, and on the other side, his daughter, Helen Barnes Golden.

What was interesting to me was comparing the description of Ernest to that of his grandfather, Jacob H. Barnes, who died during the Civil War in 1863 after being injured at the Battle of Gettysburg, and taken prisoner. Both were tall, with dark hair, eyes, and dark complexions. It was said that Ernest took after the Barnes side and not his mother’s side the Rose family. We are very lucky that these military records are still available thorough the National Archives.

The Death of Mary Ryan Barnes in Ireland – 1904

Source: Irish Midlands Ancestry, Bury Quay, tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland. Record sent 16 Dec 2005.

Source: Irish Midlands Ancestry, Bury Quay, Tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland. Record sent 16 Dec 2005 [click on image to enlarge].

Researching the death of ancestor Mary Ann Ryan Barnes took a bit of time. We knew by 2005 that our Irish Barnes family had been parishioners of the Kilcolman Roman Catholic Church in County Offaly, Ireland. Back when Mary Ann Ryan was born on the 15th of July 1841, it was called King’s County.  We had commissioned a report on our Barnes family, from the Irish Midlands Ancestry, and had received back a nice big packet in May 2005. At that time the death record for Mary wasn’t found. Two possible birth records had been found, with the one closest to her age showing her parents of Jamy and Johanna Ryan. With two of her twelve children being named James and Johanna, it seemed the correct fit.

When the above death record was found we knew it was correct. At that time the record cost an additional $15.00. We had sent the funds gladly! What struck us right away was that Mary had died one day before her birthday. Her age was listed as 63, and that would have been her age the next day. Since her death was certified, she must have been under treatment by a doctor for her bronchitis.

Most of what we had found out about Mary was from one of her granddaughters, Helen Barnes Golden. She helped us immensely with her great recollections of her Irish aunts and uncles. She shared this one tidbit about Mary Ryan Barnes – that Mary had never felt she had a normal teenager experience – she went right from being a child to being a bride. We were rather surprised to find out that she was 17, and almost 18, when she married John Barnes. We thought she would have been younger.

Mary Ann Ryan married John Barnes on 13 June 1859 at the Kilcolman Church. We had received the marriage record from Irish Midlands Ancestry. I also sent a letter to the parish priest at the Kilcolman R. C. Church in May of 2008 to find out if there was any more information. Fr. Kieran Blake kindly replied, ” John Barnes and Mary Ann Ryan were married on June 13, 1859. John Barnes and Bridget Larkin were married on November 24, 1909. John Joe wars baptized on March 3, 1914.”

At this time we don’t think there is a gravestone marker at any of the parish cemeteries for John and Mary Ryan Barnes, after an extensive search. Their grandson, John Joe Barnes, put up a gravestone for his parents, John and Bridget Barnes, at the Dungar Cemetery, Fancroft, near Roscrea, Ireland. He never married nor had children. All of the rest of Mary and John Barnes’ children emigrated to the United States.

Looking at the Ireland Census of 1901, the last taken before Mary’s death, she can be found as the head of the household in King’s County, in the townland of Aghadouglas, Kilcolman, living in house number 3. She’s listed as a Roman Catholic, 60 years old, a widow, born in Kings County. With her were her children: John, age 30; Daniel, age 23; Ellen, age 18; and Thomas, age 16 (all not married). Her husband, John, had died in 1892.

The children that had already left for the United States were: Maria, Patrick, Margaret, James, Johanna, Anna, Hannah, and Daniel. We did find a record at Ellis Island, New York, for Jeremiah’s entrance in 1910, when he went to his brother James’ home. Most of the Barnes siblings went to 223 East 36th St., NYC, and stayed with their siblings when they first left Ireland.

Tuesday’s Tip: Civil registration of births, marriages, and death records started in Ireland in 1864 – 1958. Family Search at The Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints is a good site to start your search:  https://familysearch.org/ .  Certificates can be ordered from them. Under this heading there is more information and this suggestion – Ireland Civil Registration – “Civil registration records are also indexed online at www.ancestry.comwww.findmypast.ie and www.rootsireland.ie. These are either pay-as-you-go or subscription websites”. I did find a basic listing for our Mary Barnes searching ancestry.com: Source – “Ancestry.com. Ireland, Civil Registration Deaths Index, 1864-1958 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2011 Original data: “Ireland, Civil Registration Indexes 1845–1958,” Index. FamilySearch, Salt Lake City, Utah. General Register Office. “Quarterly Returns of Births in Ireland with Index to Births.” Belfast, Ireland.”  Good luck searching Irish records!

Friday’s Faces From the Past – Charming Children, Circa 1910

Photographer - Capt. A. O. Clement, Goldsboro, NC

Photographer – Capt. A. O. Clement, Goldsboro, NC

This portrait was one of many photographs belonging to Sarah Ophelia Barnes, née Rose (1863-1936). Ophelia lived for many years in Goldsboro, Wayne County, North Carolina. Her great-granddaughter, Betsy Coleman, shared the pictures with our Barnes family, in the hopes that more folks could be identified.

I’m not sure if these two charming cute children are boys or girls, or one of each, but most likely they were siblings. They could have been twins or born one year apart. The dresses may have been christening outfits. Both children look like they belong to the Barnes family, and the one in the back looks a lot like Ophelia’s granddaughter, Helen Barnes Golden, as a child, but we know it isn’t her. We have another portrait from this same photo studio in Goldsboro, dated 1909.

The photographer, Captain Albert Oliver Clement, was born September 15, 1882 and he died April 25, 1936 in Goldsboro, Wayne County, NC. He was buried at Rockfish Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Wallace, Duplin County, NC (source: http://www.findagrave.com Find A Grave Memorial# 54795614).

Looking at newspaper archives online at Genealogy Bank I found a short death notice for Capt. Clement in the Greensboro Daily News, Greensboro, NC, from Saturday, May 23, 1936. I would think the Wayne County Public Library, in Goldsboro, NC will have more information about the A. O. Clement Photo Studio. One of these days I have to plan a trip there for more research on our Barnes Family!

Here is another portrait from the A. O. Clement Studio, of a pretty young girl with a bow in her hair. This child favors the Rose side of the family. Many in the Rose family had thick dark brown hair and large expressive dark eyes.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday – Woman in Nurse Uniform

MissRose UniformThis photograph was taken by the Walter Washington Foster Studio, in Richmond, Virginia. There are more of the Foster photos at the Virginia Historical Society. It was addressed to Miss Barnes, 354 R. Black.  The photo was in a trunk belonging to Sarah Ophelia Rose Barnes. She was from Wayne County, North Carolina. Most likely this had been sent to her daughter, Bessie Pauline Barnes Coleman (1886-1944). After her marriage to Thomas Coleman, Bessie Barnes lived in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.

From other photos I’ve seen, this looks to be a nursing uniform from the early 20th Century. Vintage Nursing Uniforms on Pinterest has some wonderful photographs of nurses, and this cap looks similar to one from 1901. Any help in dating this photograph would be very much appreciated!

Sadie Elizabeth Fitzgerald was born 5 March 1891 in Johnston County, North Carolina. Her parents were Gaston and Tabitha Jane Massey Fitzgerald. She married George Herbert Barnes on 18 Feb 1914 in Johnston County, NC.  Their daughter, Nancy Rose Barnes, married William Washington Springle. The Barnes family lived at Four Oaks, Grantham Township, Wayne County, NC.

The original photo shown  above, belonged to Sarah Ophelia Rose Barnes, who was married to Thomas Whitley Barnes. I’ve done a previous blog posting on Ophelia. She is second from the left, in the white dress. Standing next to her is her daughter-in-law, Sadie Elizabeth Fitzgerald Barnes, also in a white. Nancy Rose Barnes (1914-2006), called Rose by the family, is the young girl standing in front.  The two ladies on either side are unknown, but most likely were related.  Our Barnes family remembers being told that Sadie Fitzgerald Barnes had Native American ancestry, but we have never confirmed that.

Friday’s Faces From the Past – Bessie Pauline Barnes of NC?

Barnes Girl of North Carolina

This photograph of a lovely young girl, or teenager, was taken by the Parker Studio in Dunn, North Carolina.  No other information is associated with the picture, except that it was in a trunk belonging to Sarah Ophelia Rose Barnes. Looking at some other photos sent to us by Betsy Coleman, my husband and I think it could be a portrait of Ophelia’s daughter, Bessie Pauline Barnes (1886-1944), taken during a graduation, or some other important occasion.

I always enjoy looking at fashions from the past, to try to date a photo. Fashion-Era shows Children in Costume History 1890 – 1900, and the length and style of the dress is right. Also, the sleeves of the dress look like leg of mutton sleeves from the 1890s. The girl is wearing a cameo, or brooch, at her neck, and she’s holding a small bouquet of flowers. She’s leaning against a log, with a rural backdrop.

The Barnes family lived in Grantham Township, Wayne County, NC, but by the 1900 census Bessie was living in Goldsboro, North Carolina while attending school, and was enumerated with her great uncle and aunt – Needham and Mary Musgrave. She was also enumerated living with her mother and two brothers in Grantham Township during the 1900 Federal Census. Her father, Tom Barnes, had died in 1892.

What made us think that this photo could be Bessie Pauline Barnes, was another portrait taken before her wedding to Thomas Coleman in 1910. In the photo below, Bessie has darker hair, but often hair does darken after childhood. The beautiful eyes look similar, and in both portraits there is a quiet look of kindness and contemplation. What do you think? You can click on the picture to enlarge it.

Workday Wednesday – David Jeptha Rose (1861-1940) – General Contractor

David Jeptha RoseDavid Jeptha Rose (1861-1940) started his Rocky Mount, North Carolina general contracting business in 1890, and the company, D. J. Rose & Son, Inc., is still in business today. His firm was one of the first licensed general contracting firms in North Carolina. David J. Rose, and his partners, built homes, churches, banks, railroad stations, and a multitude of other buildings. Visit the firm’s website, http://www.djroseandson.com/about.htm and also read this excellent article: http://americanbuildersquarterly.com/2013/building-through-four-generations/ for more information. Next year the company is planning their 125th anniversary in the construction trade.

This photo, and the one below, were in the collection of pictures his sister, Sarah Ophelia Rose Barnes saved. His great-niece, Helen Barnes Golden, said her family called him Uncle Jep, and at the time of her grandmother Ophelia’s death in 1936, he was putting together a family history tree. Many in the Rose family have gathered genealogy information, and published family histories at reunions. Many thanks to Betsy Coleman for the photos.

D. J. RoseSince D. J. Rose was such a successful North Carolina builder his biography was included in the History of North Carolina, Volume V, The Lewis Publishing Company, Chicago and New York, 1919, pages 338-339. He was the fifth of eleven children of George Pinkney and Nancy Brunt Rose, born 27 November 1861 in Bentonville, Johnston County, NC.  In 1868 his family moved to nearby Grantham Township, Wayne County, NC., where his family farmed. He was an enterprising young child, finding jobs in the neighborhood, and by the age of twenty-four had started working as a carpenter. His brother, William P. Rose also started a general contracting business, and became another well-known North Carolina builder. D. J. Rose’s business grew to encompass sites throughout the south. D. J. Rose married twice, first to Anna Woodall, and after her death to Vara Benton. Both were natives of Johnston County, NC. His obituary is from the Greensboro Daily News (Greensboro, NC) , published on Thursday, May 9, 1940, page 18.  David Jeptha Rose died 8 May 1940 in Rocky Mount, Nash County, North Carolina.

Sunday’s Obituary – Joel L. Rose (1859-1932) of Wayne County, NC

Source:  Greensboro Daily News, Greensboro, NC, Sunday, December 11, 1932, page 3. Accessed at GenealogyBank.com

Source: Greensboro Daily News, Greensboro, NC, Sunday, December 11, 1932, page 3. Accessed at GenealogyBank.com

Joel L. Rose was born in 1859, at Bentonville, Johnston County, North Carolina. His parents were George Pinkney and Nancy Brent Rose. When he was a young child, his family moved to Grantham Township, Wayne County, NC. He followed in his father’s footsteps as a farmer. He had ten siblings that lived to maturity, including Sarah Ophelia Rose Barnes.

On December 7, 1887 he married Mollie Stafford in Johnston County, NC. They had twelve children, and in this other obituary it states that all twelve children were at his bedside when he died. That seems so touching to me, and a testament to how much he must have been loved by his children. This obituary was copied by the Johnston County Heritage Center, in Smithfield, NC, and at the time, in 2004, it was the best copy available. I’ve also added the obituary as a PDF.

Here is a photograph from 1918, showing Joel and Mollie Rose, of the Grantham Community, in the center, surrounded by their children and extended family. Many thanks to Guy Potts for his help in identifying the picture for our family. He found a smaller version in a copy of the Goldsboro News Argus, Wayne County, NC from March 1981 entitled, “Yesterday’s Scene”.

Passenger Record for Ellen Barns – SS Campania – 1908

When researching passenger records online at the Ellis Island Foundation website in 2003 for Helen Barnes (1881-1973), I came across only one likely record for my husband’s grandmother. Some of the information seemed wrong, but I saved the record and printed it out.  The family had thought she was born in County Offaly (County Kings), Ireland in 1887. We knew she had emigrated to the United States sometime before her marriage to Ernest Barnes in 1914. The passenger record below showed that an Ellen Barns had come to New York City on the 29th of April in 1908. Her last residence was Roscrea, Ireland.

www.ElissIsland.org

Source: Ellis Island Passenger Record, http://www.ellisisland.org accessed on 10/8/03

Name: Barns, Ellen.
Ethnicity: British, Irish.
Place of Residence: Roscrea, Ireland.
Date of Arrival: April 29, 1908.
Age on Arrival: 24y.
Gender: F.
Marital Status: S.
Ship of Travel: Campania.
Port of Departure: Queenstown, Cork, Munster, Ireland.

Height: 5 foot 7 inches. Hair: Dark Brown. Eyes: Brown. Occupation: Domestic.

When researching on Ancestry.com I took a closer look at the manifest, and facts slid into place. First hint for family research – always trust your instincts. Second hint – record what you have found, by printing out the record or keep a notebook dedicated to your genealogy. Third hint – when researching Irish records use a broad base of ten years plus or minus for the birth year.

Our Helen Barnes went by the name of Ellen Barns/Barnes in Ireland. After coming to the USA she changed the spelling of her given name and also the year of her birth from 1881 to 1887.  Even as she left Ireland she started to make herself younger. Way to go, Nana!

Here is the section of the manifest for Ellen Barns showing she was leaving the household of John Barns, Dromakeen, Roscra, Ireland. Dromakeenan is a small village on the border of northern County Tipperary and southern County Offaly. Her brother, John Barnes, was the only one of Barnes twelve siblings to stay on the family farm. In some records the farm is shown at Kilcolman or the townland of Aughadouglas. When Helen Barnes’ father died in 1892 the place of death was Dromakeenan, County Kings (Offaly).

My eldest daughter and I took a trip to Ireland in 2008, and we met up with one of my husband’s cousins, and his family. He also had been doing family research on his grandmother. When we looked at the passenger record together, we realized we were meeting in Ireland exactly one hundred years after Helen Barnes’s journey! Ellen Barns set sail from Queenstown, County Cork on the SS Campania on the 25th of April 1908, and she arrived at Ellis Island five days later.

Good luck searching for your family’s departures and arrivals.

Friday’s Faces From the Past – Man’s Photo taken by S. R. Alley of Tarboro, NC

BarnesRoseMan1

This unknown man had his photograph taken by S.R. Alley of Tarboro, North Carolina, most likely at towards the end of the 19th century. The man seems to be staring right into my eyes pleading to be identified. This portrait was one of many photographs belonging to Sarah Ophelia Barnes, née Rose (1863-1936). Her great-granddaughter, Betsy Coleman, shared the pictures with our Barnes family, in the hopes that more folks could be identified.

The photographer was active in Tarbor0, Edgecombe County, NC between 1880 – 1920. At times S. R. Alley partnered with Francis M. Winstead. There are also some photos taken by Francis M. Winstead in our collection, but this is the only one from the Alley Studio. Of the photographs found in Ophelia’s trunk, this appears to be one of the older ones. The man looks very prosperous from the cut of his suit. There seems to be some resemblance to the Rose and Barnes families, especially his beautiful eyes and the shape of his ears.

My husband’s Barnes family are descendants of early Virginia settlers who came to America from the British colonization. The earliest ancestor we have traced back was a Quaker farmer named John Barnes, born circa 1640. He lived in Virginia near the James River, and at some point when land opened up in the new frontier of North Carolina, he moved his family there. His will is dated from 1719 in Chowan County, NC.

This four-generation pedigree chart is of Ophelia’s son, Ernest Howard Barnes. The Rose family were also early Virginia settlers. Most likely the man in this unknown portrait fits somewhere in this chart, or the Coleman family. You can click on the chart and photograph to enlarge the images.

In genealogy, one person’s research helps the next. A publication by Frances G. Howell, of Goldsboro, North Carolina, helped our family find the many branches of our tree. Many other people helped, too, but I would be amiss if I didn’t mention the genealogy book called, The early Howells of Wayne County, North Carolina:  Henry Howell, his descendants, and some allied lines, by Frances Godwin Howell, 1991. LC Classification: CS71.H858.  Copies can be found at the Library of Congress, Washington, DC, and also, The Wayne County Library, Goldsboro, NC.

If you are researching any of our North Carolina Barnes and Rose families, try to track down her book. In 2005 I contacted Frances Howell, and she was a great help untangling our Rose lines, with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of early Wayne County, NC families. These are the chapter headings of her book: Henry Howell Family; Daughtry Lineage; Brent Family; Heath Lineage; Mathews Lineage; and Edwards Lineage.
