Frances Barneycastle was the son of Frederick Barneycastle & Elizabeth Kessler. His brother Peter and sister Esther White, his son Yerby, and his wife Anna are all buried here. Unfortunately, many Waughtown gravestones in the old section have been stolen, so his grave and his wife's grave are no longer marked. We can ascertain where they were buried, though, because in the old section, people were buried according to years rather than family plots. Peter's grave is in this section and thankfully it survived.

Francis grew up on his father's farm in the Clemmons area,Peter Clemmons being a neighbor. The property was on the east bank of Muddy Creek. He enlisted for service in the War of 1812, Feb 1814, along with older brother Samuel. Francis established his own farm in a different area than Clemmons. His farm was located in the Broad Bay section of Forsyth near Barney & Cassel streets, just down the road from the Union Ridge Methodist Church. His wife was Moravian, but the family was Methodist/Episcopalian. Most of his children stayed in the Winston Salem area, sons John & Henry moved to Nebraska, and son George moved to Missouri.

Francis died of consumption just before the start of the Civil War. He owed money on the farm, and the family banded together and bought it back at the foreclosure auction, for much less than he paid for the land.
