When Barnabus McNamee bought the tract it was called “Mason’s Bower”. On this map you can see the J. Linton and O.M. Linton (Olive M.) property along Barneys Run Rd. south of Centerville:
There are 3 known unmarked graves of Barnabas McNamee (1793), Mary McNamee (1809), his wife, and Jacob McNamee (1811), his son. The graves were unmarked because of Quaker doctrine at that time.
Census: Published in "Washington Co., PA Cemeteries, East and West Pike Run Twps. and Related Burials", compiled by Floyd Gillis. Copy in genealogical collection at Citizens Library, Washington, PA.
