BARNES, B.N. (1832~1901) Very little information is available on B.N. Barnes. His name has not been located in any military records. According to the Confederate Home Roster, he was born in Tennessee in 1832. It also says he was a member of Company E, of the Texas Mounted Rifles, though there is nothing to confirm this. His headstone says he was part of the Tennessee Mounted Rifles, but there is no evidence such a unit existed. If he was part of the Texas Mounted Rifles, it is possible he participated in conflicts in the New Mexico Territory and Louisiana, and also participated in the defense of Galveston.

It is uncertain when B.N. Barnes came to Texas. When he entered the Confederate Men's Home March 12, 1895, he was a widower. His occupation before entering the Home was a carpenter. He was released from the home by the Medical Board on June 3, 1897, but was readmitted December 31, 1897. His only listed correspondent was C.F. Barnes in Files, Hill County, Texas; their relationship is unknown. B.N. Barnes died February 23, 1901, and was buried at the Texas State Cemetery the next day.
