A FARMING FAMILY
The Barnard Family Saga
in America 1679-2005
NINE GENERATIONS OF FARMING
AND FAMILY AND FIVE WARS.
Nine Generations of Farming and Family and Five Wars... When the Globe set sail on a misty morning in 1679 from London, 21-year-old Thomas Barnard was in the ship's hold, preparing for the long voyage to America. Trading five years' service for free land in America had seemed like a good idea at the time, but as England faded from view, Tom was already homesick for the green hills of Gloucestershire. In A Farming Family in the New World, we follow Tom's journey to America, and as the story unfolds, nine generations of his family flourish on American soil. From the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War through World War II, from 1679 to 2005, history comes to life in this meticulously researched book, which chronicles the history of one American family through times of peace and prosperity, poverty and war.
