(A) Bolen, H. J., "I Remember" Henderson County Times, indicates that James I. Barger had a brother, Steve, but no other records of a Steve or Stephen Barger exist in Henderson County. Several references are made to a John S. Barger, perphaps the "S" was for Steve. This should be verified.
(B) James I. Barger was justice of the peace in Henderson County, TN. Several deeds conveying land between various members of the Barger family in the 1870's were witnessed by him.
(C) See Family Group Sheet 10288 for the first marriage of James I. Barger to Margaret Wall, and their two children, Irvin B. Barger and Amy Barger.
(D) This family is descended from George Henry Barger of Rowan County, NC.

Census of Henderson Co., TN (HE-277-248) lists Henry Barger, age 73.
