# Note:

    Copied verbatim from records of Ruth (Denison) Prater. Josiah Barnes and his wife Elizabeth Tramell, along with their younger children, left Va. and went to Kentucky to find timber. He first went to Hardin Co. Kentucky, but he didn't like what he saw, so he moved to Grayson County Kentucky around 1813 and lived near Peter Cave. Their older children, John, Jane and Nancy stayed in Virginia until about 1815. Jane had married William (Denison) and the first time William's name appeared on a tax record was 1820. James was born about 1818 in Kentucky, according to the 1850 Kentucky census. Tramell was born 1809 in Va. Married Francis "Fannie" Carter born in Va. Ca. 1808. Many of the Carters came to Grayson Co. Ky. about the time William and Jane came. Most of them are buried in Grayson Co. Kentucky but many don't have gravestones.

    Josiah and Elizabeth BARRON transferred 50 ac on the waters of Fall Cre
    to John YEAMON for $100 on 13 Dec 1810. Adjoins BARRON's old lines, CRAIN.
