He married Ellen Mchardy (b. 1866- d.1890) in 1883. They had four children, three who i have records for a fourht which is listed on Ellen Mchardy death certificate but i have not been able to located.

They were

Henry Barnes

Charles Barnes
b. 1888

William Henry Barnes (aka Bill)

I have been trying to find out what happened to Henry Barnes post 1890 after his wife died. I have not been able to located a death record.

Futher hints, on Catherine marriage to Wilhemine Knighton Sparkes, it states with written permission of gardian of the bride, Isabella Clark (appointed by father). I wonder if this means, that Henry has also pasted by this time, or if he has left the area.
