George Barmore, Jr. [1776-1816]

George Barmore's Last Will & Testament was dated 15 July 1816 and probated 19 September 1816 and is recorded in Volume 2 of Abbeville County Wills at page 19.

He settled on a plantation given him by his father about two miles above what is now Donnalds, South Carolina, on the road leading from that town to Honea Path. Charles Hill Dodson owned the place in 1892; it is now (1955) owned by Paul Marion Davis.

George Barmore was married, about 1798, evidently in South Carolina, to Nancy Pyles, daughter of Reuben Pyles and Esther (Rochester) Pyles.

His Family Goes West

Some years after George Barmore's death, his widow, Nancy (Pyles) Barmore, with her children (with the exception of James) moved to Alabama. She at one time lived in Pickens County, Alabama, near McBee Creek and near where Robert Henry lived: in the northwestern part of the county, near the Alabama-Mississippi line. Her son Dale is said to have been killed in a storm there. In 1850 she was living with her son, Newton N. Barmore, in Fayette County, Alabama, and in 1860 she was living with him in Wellborn Township, Conway County, Arkansas, in or near the town of Lewisburg. Her occupation as shown in the Federal census of 1860 for that county: "Sews and knits." The date and place of her death are not known.
