Of my many regrets, waiting so late in life to publish the story of my branch
of the Barnhart lineage is the most lamented. There are a many reasons for my tardiness, but what does it matter, now? All we have is on loan, but I feel some back payments are owed. I do this to honor my mother and father, whom I have discovered with my own maturity, were the kind of people that made the world around them, a better place.
For a concise, linear picture of progression I would refer the reader to Ancestry. com. Our ancestors were people, not mere names and dates and I hope this blog will reveal a deeper human connection for their descendants. The annotations are authored by Noel Clayton Barnhart.
