About Nancy Jane Barnard

Nancy Jane Barnard ( 1838-1916)

Taken from “Genealogy of Samuel Barnard and Descendants, Eight Generations, 1800-1954” by Noble Edgar Nay, 1955.

Edited by Deanna Horton Mitts

Nancy Barnard was the eighth child and was born in 1838 in Tennessee. She came with her parents and the family to Missouri in 1844. In the Federal census of 1860, Samuel Barnard gives “Nancy J.” as being 22 years old and one of his children. We do not know the day and month of her birth. In the Dudley Barnard probate court proceedings, A.D. Barnard lists her as Jane Barnard, a sister of Dudley.

Aunt Jane, as she was known, never married, and lived to be 78 years old. She lived with her parents, and brothers and sisters all her life. She was known to all as a friendly, good woman, and liked by all who knew her. We are told by many still living that knew her, that she was fluent in conversation. She remembered many things about the family that others had long forgotten. She spoke and gave data of members of the family that is now lost and cannot be found, which would be of untold value at this time.

Aunt Jane had as a pet a wild deer. One day the deer went wild and attacked her, cutting a large place in her neck from which she always bore the scars. The family ate venison at once!

She often spoke of Little Lydia, her sister, which information gives us about all the data we have concerning Lydia, which will follow this.

Nancy Jane died on the 8th of January 1916, and was buried in the Panther Valley Cemetery. We are told her stone is there, but we failed to find it.
