Birth: Sep. 22, 1835
Trimble County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Dec. 17, 1907
Trimble County
Kentucky, USA

Schadrich Barnes is the fifth of five children born to George William and Elizabeth
Beach Barnes.

Schadrich married Mary Jane McClure, daughter of William and Jane Randall McClure,
on 21 Mar 1860 in Trimble County, Kentucky. They had six children: Elizabeth Jane,
Nathan William, Emmett L, Charles Randall, James Lawrence and Curtis James.



Death Has Been Expected for About Ten Days.

(Note: There is an artist sketch of him)

At one o'clock Tuesday afternoon death relieved the suffering of Mr. Shad
Barnes. For nearly ten days or since On Dec. 9 his children were called to his
bedside and they have constantly attended him since that time. He has not been
well for several years and his death may be said to be due to genendebility
brought on by age.

Deceased was seventy-two years old having been born Sept. 22, 1835. He was
born and raised in Trimble county. In 1860 he was united in marriage with Miss
Mary Jane McClure. His good wife together with their six children survive him.
Of these Mrs. Lizzie Hudson, wife of F. W. Hndson, Nathan W. and Charile R.
are residents of Trimble county; Emmett L. James L., and Curtis E. are
residents of Indianapolis, Ind. Three half brothers, Reuben, Bing. and James
of this county, also survive him.

Mr. Barnes though never in public life was perhaps as well known as any man in
the county, and numbered as many friends as anyone. He "stuck to the farm his
fortune." He lived on the same farm all his married life. It was generally
conceded that he was one of the wealthiest, if not the wealthiest man in the

It may be well to add that much of his attention as a farmer was devoted to
stock raising and in this he has indeed set a good example. The greater
portion of his wealth lies in farm lands, some of the best. We have heard him
remark that his ancestors in emigrating to Trimble passed through the great
blue grass section of Kentucky, rejecting it for the better watered section.
He regretted their lack of fore sight, and truly might he have regretted it
for had they have known the value of what they rejected, he might have been
truly "A blue grass king."

For years he has been known among the men of finance in Trimble and adjoining
counties. Early in their career he was made a director in the Bedford Loan &
Deposit Bank and in the Deposit Bank of Sulphur. These positions he held until
his death.

Truly a great man is gone. In his sphere he was Naapoleon. Had his
environments been different and his field larger he no doubt would have risen
to the requirements of the place and stood the equal of any man around him.

the funeral sevices were conducted at the home Thursday at eleven o'clock. The
burial was at I.O.O.F. Cemetery at Bedford at 2 p.m.
