    I am researching descendants and ancestors of John Barnes (of Wimborne, Dorset) and Louisa Tucker of Harbour Grace.

    John and Louisa Marriage: 02 Jun 1821 at Carbonear; Anglican Church
    Witnesses to the marriage – William Barnes and Edward Peters.

    Their children:

    Ebenezer Webber Barnes (My 3rd Great Grandfather)
    Birth: 04 Aug 1822 in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
    Death: 17 Mar 1887 in Boot Harbour; United Church Burial
    Spouse: Jane P (possibly Pike or Parsons)

    Melvina Ann Barnes
    Birth: 30 Apr 1824 in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
    No Marriage, or Death found

    Name: George Frederick Barnes
    Birth: 22 Feb 1827 in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
    Marriage: 21 Sep 1856 in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada;
    Anglican Church – Witness: Phillip Jaynes & EPH Jaynes
    Spouse: Catharine Jaynes
    **George was a Blacksmith

    I am looking for more information on Louisa Tuckers family. I have branched out quite a bit on the Barnes/Tucker descendants, but have nothing on Louisa’s ancestors. I’m curious about the Webber connection as well as it might be the maiden name of a female ancestor (Tucker was also used as a middle name for some descendants). Louisa may have married William Parsons in 1834 I am not sure about this. I currently have no death information for John Barnes.

    I currently live in Toronto, and only have access to online information. I would love to hear from anyone that might have a connection to this family so we can share information.

    Hi Lisa,

    I suspect that Louisa Tucker may have been a daughter of Henry and Elizabeth Tucker of Harbour Grace. Send me a note on my personal e-mail geoffgmartin@yahoo.com and we can discuss.
