Compendium of history and biography of Kalamazoo County, Mich. / David Fisher and Frank Little, editors. p. 204 ...of Tillotson and Clarissa (Byington) Barnes, who were born and reared ill Connecticut. The father was a farmer and also a millwright and he wrought at these vocations a number of years. In 1832 the family moved to this county, making the trip from Rome. N. Y., by canal to Buffalo, and from there across Lake Erie by steamboat to Detroit. From this city, which was then one of the outposts of civilization, they traveled with an ox team to Gull Prairie and settled on one hundred acres of wild and unbroken land in Ross Township, in the Oak Openings. The father did not begin farming at once, but, yielding to the necessities of the neighborhood, he erected a grist and saw mill at Yorkville, bringing the stone from Detroit by means of ox teams. This mill he operated until his death, in February, I836. The mother died in New York when her son was but four years old, and afterward the father married a second wife, Miss Ursula Wilson, who died at Yorkville in 1846. Of the first marriage three sons and two daughters were born, all of whom are now dead but Alvin. The father was a leading Presbyterian, and assisted in the erection of the first church edifice for that sect on Gull Prairie.
