Isaac and Helen were life long residents of Marion County, Ohio, Both were descendents of pioneer residents of the county. Isaac was the eldest son of Noah Barnhart and worked on his father's farm until several years after he finished school. (We don't know how many grades he completed). Isaac married Helen Bottenfield when he was twenty-five years old and she was twenty-three. Isaac and Helen moved from Marion, living in Illinois and Indiana for about fourteen years. The type of work Isaac did while he was away is not known. Isaac and Helen returned to Marion about 1895.Isaac went to work at the Osgood Manufacturing Company of Marion as a custodian. He retired from the Osgood when he was seventy-six years old and was still in excellent health! This compiler can recall watching Isaac shave with a straight razor a few weeks before his death! He was a very tall man! He and Helen lived two doors from our home on Lincoln Avenue in Marion. "Mr. and Mrs. Barnhart have been life long residents of Marion County. Both are descendants of pioneer residents of the County. Isaac was the oldest of nine children and Helen was the last of a family of eight children." The Marion Star (no date) They celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary when he was 88 years old and Helen was 86! Helen was a daughter of Meeker Bottenfield, a farmer in Prospect Township. The Bottenfield's were a large, influential clan in the Prospect area. Their family can be traced back to a John Bottenfield, Sr. in 1756 in Germany who emigrated to America and died in Ohio. His son, John Bottenfield, Jr. was born in Virginia and died in Oblong, ILL. Meeker Bottenfield was born in Waynesboro, Green County, PA, and moved to Knox County, Ohio. He was married on March 16, 1843 to Bethia Hubble and moved to Prospect Township, Marion County, Ohio and became a very successful farmer and influential member of the community.
