William Logan Barnard

William Logan Barnard

William L. Barnard, born in Maryland in 1759, died in Kentucky before 1845. In 1797 or 1798, he moved to Ohio County, KY. He served as a private in the Rev. War with the Maryland Militia and was married to Sarah Pigman. He was in Captain Maroney's Company and Colonel Griffith's Flying Camp. William did receive a pension, but his wife and heirs did not. His pension number was S16315. This information is from the DAR Patriot Index. His pension application indicates that he served at Trenton and White Plains and was discharged at Philadelphia after six months. His pension was 20 dollars per year and began when he was 75 year sold in 1833.

He is listed as 81 in the 1840 Kentucky Pensioners Index which would make his birth date more likely 1759. The regular Ohio County census shows him as over age 80 and there is one female, age 20-30 in the household..........also some "free colored females" as well as 2 female slaves. The 1840 Ohio County pensioners list shows him to be 81.

John and Nathaniel Barnard are possible fathers of William Logan as both were residents of Frederick County, Md. between 1749 and 1762.
