Stephen Barnes
American, born 1777
Biography: Not much is known about pewterer Stephen Barnes (b. 1777) of Middletown. He most likely served as an apprentice in the shop of William Danforth between 1791 and 1798. It is doubtful that he had a shop of his own, although he did have his own die for making marks.
