BARNES, ROBERT HENRY (1848 ~ 1943). Confederate veteran Robert Henry Barnes was born in Butts County, Georgia on April 3, 1848 to John Henry and Emilee Harkneff Barnes.

Barnes joined the Alabama Army sometime near the Civil War's end and served for about a year. He said he was part of Wallace's Regiment, and Tynor's {sic} Brigade (it is believed to be Tyler's Brigade). Barnes enlisted at West Point, Georgia where Brigadier General Robert Charles Tyler participated in his last battle, The Battle of Fort Tyler. It is uncertain if Barnes participated in any other battles of the Civil War.

Barnes moved to Texas in 1878. It doesn't appear that he ever married. Barnes lived in Throckmorton, Texas for 35 years before entering the Texas Confederate Home on June 5, 1941.

On the Home roster he listed his occupation as a farmer. The only person listed as a correspondent was his brother Gus Barnes, living in Gorman, Texas. Robert Barnes died March 26, 1943 and was buried at the Texas State Cemetery on March 29, 1943.
