Calhoun County History, Michigan.

Albert G. Barney, of Bedford, sergeant major, at the organization was commissioner first lieutenant May 12, .1864. He received a wound in the engagement at Bethesda Church, Virginia, June 2, 1864, from which he died at home the 29th of the following month.

Author.  I Believe he was born in 1844 an his parents were Milton and Nancy Barney.  I read many Calhoun county histories and although there were many Barney's in them little was said about their wife's or children.  Be cause of this I couldn't make a connection.
