I continue to search for information which will help me connect these families.
My 2nd GGrandfather, Joseph Barnes, b. ca 1822 in Ireland, married Sarah Wright in 1848
in NYC and lived on Staten Island. They had children: John, William Henry, Joseph P.,
Thomas Edward, and Sarah Jane. Joseph died in 1862 at Sharpsburg, MD and Sarah died in
1864 from injuries following a bed fire. The children, according to letter written in
1929 by son, Thomas Edward, were dispersed across the country. Thomas, however, remained
in Staten Island.
Isabella Barnes (b. ca 1829, Ireland), who I believe is Joseph Barnes' sister was
listed with the family in the 1850 census. It is believe this is the same Isabella Barnes
who was married to Patrick Malloy (Maloy) and had children: Rose, Mary, Patrick, Luke and
Sarah Wright (b. ca 1828, Ireland) might be the daughter of William and Catherine Wright
of Ireland and Staten Island, NY. This couple also had a son, James (b. ca 1827,
Ireland), who I believe married Anna Jane Barnes (b. 1834, Ireland).
There are a number of other Wright and Barnes family on Staten Island during the same
periods but have not been able to connect the dots.
Appreciate hearing from anyone who might have information which help me connect these
