Barnes, Zetto a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Onondaga County, N. Y., Oct. 4, 1807. He had religious convictions from early childhood; experienced conversion at the age of twenty-two, and in 1834 united with the Oneida Conference. In its effective ranks he continued till 1863, when he became superannuated. The circumstances of his death are painful, being the result of insanity, of which he showed signs for nearly a year. It occurred Sept. 22, 1864. As to his Christian character, no doubt can be entertainei; for the amount and kind of work that he performed for so many years was proof of his being thoroughly imbued with the spirit of experimental piety. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1865, p. 69.
