Flowers left for Barrington King
Married Bessie Macleod. Barrington was a colonel in the Cobb County Georgia Legion; he died in the last days of the Civil War while leading the charge on Kilpatrick's Camp at Aversboro, NC. Before he died, he said, "Say to my wife that I die willingly defending my country". After his death, his Negro servant, Jesse Alexander brought Barrington's three swords and a horse's bit back to the family. These historical items were donated to the Historical Society along with Barrington's gold crest ring and pocket watch. One of the swords Barrington used in fighting. Another is one he took off a Yankee soldier. The third one is one he was awarded for Valiancy. The book, "dear old Roswell", contains the Civil War letters written between Barrington, his wife, Bessie, and other King family members. Barrington has over 60 descendants many of whom live on the USA west coast.
