    "Among the first settlers in Crow's Nest were the brothers, Charles and John Barnes. Charlie was born in Cornwall, England 1839. In 1862 he married Mary Ann Maddern and the same day took her aboard the "Mortmeronsa", bound for Queensland. His first job was at Coomrith Station on the Mooney. 1863 was a year of drought and in 1864 he resolved to move to Toowoomba. After setting out with a dray and two horses the drought broke and it rained every day of the journey and one night he awakened to find water surging around the bunk. His next work was on the railway between Ipswich and Toowoomba. He was employed on the Liverpool tunnel and was in Ballard's camp at the time of the big strike. In 1866 he took up thirty acres of land at Gowrie Creek, near the present asylum, where he carried on dairying until 1879 ?. In 1875, together with his brother land was selected at Crow's Nest and he and his family shifted to Penzance where he lived until he retired.

    Just after settling on his selection he was startled one morning while ploughing, to see a woman emerge from the bush wild eyed and muttering: "Oh my children, my children" It was Mrs Egan. It transpired that she had gone for the cows, leaving her three children at their bush home. The poor soul had been wondering for three days. Her boots had been discarded to ease her feet and strips of her dress had been torn off and bound round her feet when they had become torn and bleeding. It was the barking of Barnes' dog which saved her life. Charles Barnes died in Crow's Nest on 31 October 1925

    John Barnes was born in 1843 and about 1863 he left Cornwall to join Charles at Coomrith and arrived there in time to accompany him on his journey to Toowoomba. John then followed mining at Bendigo, Stanthorpe, and Palmer River. Whilst operating a mine at the latter place his two mates died and he contracted ague. He left the field and walked to Cooktown. He started with a new pair of boots, but they were worn out before he reached Cooktown. Fear of blacks kept him from lighting a fire throughout the journey, so he subsisted on flour mixed with water. From Cooktown he caught a boat to Brisbane in 1875 and rejoined his brother at Gowrie Creek. It was then they in partnership, selected Penzance; and when, in the early 80's John took up a selection at Emu Creek, they dissolved the partnership. Charles keeping Penzance and John taking the cattle. The property, eventually 1280 acres was named "Hinton".
