Natalie, I was surprised to see my gg grandfathers brothers name listed. He is John William Jack m. Viola Webb. John's brother was a brother to Salathiel my g-father. I have a picture of John & Viola on my office wall. Also Salathiel's daughter, Theodocia Ernestine Jack m. Kester Barnhouse in Roane Co., WV and I have been fortunate to find some of their descendants. Their picture shows them to be a handsome couple. Salathiels son, Lorenzo Dow Jack's first marraige was to Susan Luverna Greathouse Longfellow and they had 1 child, my g'father, Clarence Cecil Jack. I can't wait to go through everything! Jackie Jones

Natalie, I wouldn't have dreamed THE PAGE could look any better, but it does! I love the "branches" and the "leaves". And I love the new title BARNHOUSE BRANCHES. Excellent! You've done a great job and all of us Barnhouse descendants owe you our gratitude and most sincere congratulations on a job extremely well done. Sincerely, Karen

My interest in Barnhouse genealogy was triggered by a letter from a Richard Barnhouse seeking info on Barnhouse descendents of a Barnhouse who served on the loyalist (ie English ) side in the American Revolution. I had to inform him that I was a first generation Canadian from England. I did put him on a couple of possible leads, however. Be that as it may, Richard Barnhouse informed me that as far as he can ascertain, the first Barnhouse in North America was a Richard Barnhouse from Devon County in England (possibly I am from the same roots as all my family were originally from Devon as well). This particular person arrived in Salem Mass in 1638 and from there moved to Jamestown. He was a cavalier and obviously fled England to escape Oliver Cromwell who was not known for his charity towards his vanquished enemies! For info, the present Richard Barnhouse's address is: 3621 Randalls Run Rd Blue Creek, Ohio 45616 At this point, he does not have a computer, but has indicated he intends to acquire one.

A letter from Richard Barnhouse also triggered my research. I was amazed to find Natalie's web site, and to see that my grandfather (Larkin Lee Barnhouse) is listed under Henry>Andrew>Rawley>Larkin lineage. I never knew any of my ancestry past my grandfather before. It was like finding my grandmother's old, faded bible! It's nice to know I have so many cousins out there! My name is Jacob Leroy Barnhouse, Jr., but everyone always called me "Sonny". I live in Bel Air, Maryland. I want to thank Natalie for the time and effort she has put into this web site. Thanks to her, I can now pass along to my granddaughter (only 6 days old and is also named "Natalie") a lot more of her ancestry. I have shown Natalie's site to my daughter, Traci Lee Barnhouse. Please feel free to write or email Traci ( or myself (

Thanks, Sonny
