OBITUARY: Menomonee Falls News Jan. 27, 1910 "ANDREW BARNES DEAD Earliest Surviving Settler of Here.
The demise of Andrew Barnes at his home in this village Friday Jan. 21, removed from this community its oldest, surviving citizen. He was born in the town of Milford, Lehigh County, Pa., May 27, 1835. In the month of May 1844, in company with his parents, he came to Wisconsin. At this time the family came over land, reaching the claim of Frederick Nehs, who had been here the year previous, taking up the entire section now occupied bythe village of Menomonee Falls. The first night of their stay, was in a wagon, which was at the foot of the "Big Hill" near a spring. Later the family were given shelter in a log cabin near the present site of the Enterprise Mills. The deceased was then a boy of nine years. As a young man he helped chop and log in the clearings. His father, William Barnes, bought land on the County line, the farm being that now owned by John F. Connell. On April 5, 1858, he was united in marriage to Miss Wilhelmina Krause. Of this union two daughters were born to them, Mrs. Alpha Holt, now residing at Pewaukee and Mrs. Malinda Simpson of Boise City, Idaho who with his wife, several brothers and sisters survive him. Mr. Barnes resided in the town of Barton, Washington Co. for a number of years where he owned a fine farm. He retired upwards of a score of years ago since which time he spent his declining years at his daughters place in the West and Pewaukee. About three years ago he came back to the place of his boyhood...The funeral was held Monday and were conducted by Rev. H. E. Erffmeyer at Emaunel's Ev. Church with interment at the country cemetery. --West Bend papers please copy."
