Matilda Jane Barnes, daughter of Charles M. and Elizabeth Taylor was born near Spencer, Ind., on November 18, 1862. She was united in marriage to Isaac Daniel Barnes also of Spencer, Ind. on November 12, 1881, and to this union six children were born. One son preceded her in death. The remaining children are Elmer E. Barnes, Yates Center, Walter L. Barnes, of the New York Valley community, Mrs. Clara D.

The family then came to Yates Center and resided for about two years on a farm four miles northeast of the town.

After moving to Yates Center she became a member of the Evangelical church and was so until her death.
