John Barnes was born 6 November 1763 in Marlborough, Middlesex County, Massachusetts to Daniel Barnes (1736-1813) and Martha Brigham (1739-1769) and died 12 September 1834 Chelsea, Orange County, Vermont of unspecified causes. He married Sarah Howe (1766-1844) 8 March 1785 in Marlborough, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.


Revolutionary War Service

His father was captain of a company of minuteman (Marlborough 1775 Minuteman Roster) that marched on the alarm of 19 April 1775. They marched to Cambridge MA to intercept the British and were there for about 10-30 days.

John's service probably occurred much later in the war because of his young age. He was placed on the pension roll of Orange Co., Vt., 1818, for service of private in the Massachusetts Continental Line. He was born in Marlboro, Mass.; died in Chelsea, Vt.
