The Barger Family of Weakley County, Tennessee


The Descendants of Daniel D. Barger in West Tennessee

The following information was compiled by the late 
Mr. Gordon E. Smith of Florence, AL, and relates to 
his wife's Barger family in Weakley County, TN:

DANIEL D. BARGER, a millwright from PA, came to Weakley 
Co., TN ca. 1824, after marrying ELIZABETH (BETSEY) _____, 
in KY.  They settled on a 200 acre tract on Mud Creek, near 
THOMAS ETHERIDGE.  Court minutes show that DANIEL BARGER 
and THOMAS ETHERIDGE laid out and worked roads together.  

DUTCH BARGER suggested that at one time the family surname was
"DE BERGER."  Various court records and minutes show DANIEL D.
BARGER's name as "BARGO."  This spelling is a common variation 
of the BARGER name.

The relationship of this BARGER family to any other has not 
yet been established.  Some have said that this family arrived 
in America at PA, and came from Alsace-Lorraine, along the 
border between France and Germany, near Switzerland.  

A sheet listing the birthdates for what appear to be the ten
children of DANIEL D. BARGER and BETSEY _____, from 1824 to 
1840, has been found.  It is written in old classic German 
script.  The given names for some of children cannot be 
easily read.

The capital letter "D" is used between each given name and the
surname (instead of the "de" ?)  The name of the 10th child, 
WILLIAM G. BARGER) name is recorded in the more modern English 
style, possibly subsequent to the death of DANIEL D. BARGER. 

Bible records indicate the dates of death for ELIZABETH D. BARGER
as 1832; ELIZA D. BARGER, 1843; and HENRY D. BARGER, 1844.  These
people could be DANIEL'S children, or perhaps his brother and
sisters.  The lineage chart shown below was constructed from family
records for only four of the ten BARGER children, i. e., JOHN NELSON
BARGER, JAMES W. BARGER, MARTHA ANN BARGER and WILLIAM GLEASON
BARGER.  All three of the these sons of DANIEL D. BARGER served for
four years in the Confederate Army under General N. B. FORREST, in
Duckworth's Co. H, 7th Tennessee Cavalry.
