Memories about Grandmother Clarissa Jones as written down by Josie (Jones) Coats:

Grandma Clarissa Jones had a brother Jack Barnes, a sister, and at least 2 half-brothers as her mother remarried to a Mr. Barnard after the death of Clarissa's father. He died of T.B. and Clarissa never knew him but she said he was a carpenter (or rather maybe her stepfather was a carpenter). Her parents were American-born. Grandma Jones never went to school. She knit socks and made shirts.

Through further research on census records and birth and death records of this Jones family, the birth names were revealed.

Father is Castmill Barnes c.1815-bef.1845
Mother is Indiana Underwood c.1815-bef.1880

"Jack" Andrew Jackson Barnes 1833-1912
"Fanny" Frances Barnes b.1835
Benjamin Barnes 1839-1901
Clarissa Barnes 1842-1920

The mother remarried to Foster Barnard b.1817
their children:
Margaret E. Barnard b.1845
Albert Barnard 1850-1860
John J. Barnard 1852-1923
