From a F-A-G contributor:

Hi, I recently found this obituary in the 11 Feb 1886 issue of the Herald Tribune, thought you might want to add it to the memorial.

David G.W. Barnes, Sr., was born in Washington County, Tenn., July 10, 1822, and died at his home on Buffalo Ridge where he has resided many years, Sunday morning Feb 7, 1886. At an early age he married Miss Saraphina George, who still survives him. He enlisted as a private in Co. I, 8th Tenn. Cavalry, Sept. 23, 1863 and was mustered out Sept. 23, 1865. He was a brave soldier and followed Grant to victory and Appomattox.
