There have been plenty of times while researching that I have to overlook Barnes as a possiblity, so maybe this is not one of those times.
Last year, Jun 4, 2009, I replied to another person's post with the following, is this what you have found? I appreciate anything new you have to share with me. You have given me so many answers already. I'm not a civil war researcher, and last week I came to the site and asked questions and received answers.
