(A) 1880 U. S. Census, 2nd Dist. Morgan Co., TN, lists Mahala Barger, age 30, the divorced widow of John Barger, together with Nancy Barger, age 9, Benjamin Barger, age 3, all enumerated at th household of Thomas and Elander Stoneciper. There is no mention of Henry C. Barger in that home at that time. He would have been seven years old in 1880. It may be that Nancy, and not Henry C., was the first born, which conflicts with the information contained in Source (2), below:

(B) This family is descended from Pinte Barger of Morgan County, TN.
