BARNS, Charles Leslie Tue Jul 07, 1998
Seeking information on my grandfather's family. His name was Charles Leslie Barns and both his death certificate and marriage license show that he was born in Ness, KS on February 18, 1887. His father was James M. Barns (born in PA) and his mother was Jennie C. HUNT (born in OH).

My father said that when he was a boy, his mother took him to Kansas by train to visit relatives. (Dad grew up in Beaver County, near Pittsburgh, PA) He and my uncle (Dad's brother) both remembered that someone in the family owned a candy shop/factory. Dad also thought that there were relatives in Great Bend and Lawrence, KS. I assume that the relatives would be of either the Barns or Hunt families, but I don't know that for sure. Dad said that one of the relatives was Leslie Hunt--and that he was named Leslie after him.
