Barnes Oxford Genealogy Research Foundation

North Carolina Foothills History

What Are We Researching

We collect large volumes of old records relating to Barnes and Oxford families discussed here that are scattered in many courthouses throughout the U.S.

Most of these documents are not currently available online elsewhere.

We concentrate our research  to the genealogy of:

Irish immigrant Brinsley Barnes (1713-1794

Solomon Barnes (circa 1752-1807)

Immigrant John Oxford (1639-1719)

The History of the North Carolina Foothills 

The Lenoir Family Papers
