(1)  James W. Barger's father, Daniel, came to Weakley County, TN from
Pennsylvania, by way of Kentucky, where he married.  Early
documents, including the family Bible, show that Daniel used the
surname, BARGO.  The BARGER spelling was adopted ca. 1830 when the
entries in the Bible began to be in English rather than German.
Daniel's will was signed "BARGER."

(2)  Caution should be employed when researching Bargers in Weakley County.
A number of descendants of George Henry Berger/Barger of NC, children 
and grandchildren of George M. Barger and Louisa Brigance, lived in
the county after the Civil War.  The relationsips, if any, among these 
people has not been established. 

(3)  This family is descended from Daniel D. Barger.
