Barnes, William Jeffries, one of the early settlers of Kaysville, Davis county, Utah, was born August 20, 1820, in Bedfordshire, England, the son of William Barnes and Elizabeth Jeffries. He emigrated to Utah in 1853 and settled at Kaysville, where he took an active part in the building of the old fort, making canals and water ditches, fighting grasshoppers and crickets, building meeting houses, etc. He was always an active and faithful member of the Church. Bro. Barnes was twice married; his first wife Frances Chapman (whom he married in England) was the mother of eleven children; later he married Mary Symonds and Sarah Sugden. In 1870 he filled a six month mission to the Muddy valley, in Nevada, and returned to Kaysville when the settlements on the Muddy were broken up in 1871. Here he died in November, 1893, 73 years old, leaving a large posterity.

Frightful Accident
W.J. Barnes Killed at Kaysville on Tuesday Evening
He Was Thrown from a Wagon and His Neck Broken
Kaysville, Nov. 15-A singular and fatal accident occurred near the Rio Grand Western depot just before 8 o'clock last evening. William J. Barnes and William R. Payne were returning home from Salt Lake in a wagon, and when they reached the scene of the accident the team turned suddenly, throwing Mr. Barnes out. He struck on his head and his neck was broken. It is supposed that death was instantaneous, as he never spoke after the accident.

Mr. Barnes was one of the early settlers of Kaysville, and was over 74 years of age.

He leaves a large family, who have the sincere sympathy of the community.

The funeral services will be held in the meeting house tomorrow (Thursday) at 2 p.m.
