|Birth: ||Mar. 9, 1858|
|Death: ||Jan. 28, 1878|
Barney M. Quillian died at age 20 when he was studying and preparing to become a minister in the Methodist Church.
His first name comes from his grandfather, Barney Meaders, of the Mt. Pleasant Methodist society. His mother, Jane Meaders Quillian, was often referred to as the "mother of Methodism" because she had so many sons that became part of the North Georgia Methodist Episcopal Church Conference. The book "A Standard History of Georgia and Georgians" reports on Osborne P. and Jane W. Quillian's children stating that "all the sons chose professional careers, four becoming preachers and two other dying before like intentions were carried out ..."
Barney M. Quillian was one of those two sons who died before carrying out the intentions of going into Methodist ministry. He was a twin, sharing the womb with Osborne Benson Quillian.
