Asahel Barnes

ASAHEL BARNES, born 1774 in New Haven, Connecticut, was the 3x’s Great Grandson of Thomas Barnes (1623-1691) and Mary Elizabeth Andrews (1626-1676) and was the son of Joel Barnes and Ann Todd. Married 1st to Patty Ives, the daughter of Stephen Ives and Sarah Ames. The couple had 9 children. After the death of Patty, Asahel married 2nd Hannah Linsley in 1824. It’s not likely the marriage between Asahel and Hannah was as blissful as hoped, since in 1826 Asahel placed a notice in the local paper referring to his then wife as “my old, blind, drunken, lying, she devil”.

Following is the line of descent from Thomas Barnes, progenitor of the Barnes family:
