Digger and Rebecca:
The Barnes story begins with Willard "Digger" Barnes who was born in Dallas County. His father was a ranch hand on Southfork
the home of the Southworths and Ellie Southworth. He fell for Ellie. Ellie however, fell for Jock Ewing his friend from as
far back as the 1920's. Digger believed that Jock stole Ellie from him and also that the first strikes of oil that made Ewing
Oil were rightfully his. This started what is now called The Barnes- Ewing Feud. After the strikes and Jock's marriage to
Ellie, Digger had to find something or someone of his own. In one of his few days of not being drunk he married Rebecca Blake
who gave him a son, Tyler. Tyler died at six months of age and after their grief passed they had son, Clifford who was very
healthy. At some point Rebecca had an affair with Hutch McKinney the foreman of Southfork. When Rebecca became pregnant with
Hutch McKinney's child Digger killed him. (The body would not be found till Ray went to build his house on the Southfork land
years later. The baby born of that affair was Pamela Jean Barnes Ewing. She did not know she was not Digger's daughter till
his death in 1980. Rebecca ran out on Digger and young Pamela and Cliff. She want to Houston to later marry millionaire, Herbert
Wentworth. She had a child, Katherine, but never forgot about her children in Dallas. Back in Dallas Cliff and Pamela were
raised by their Aunt Margaret, Digger's sister in the run down part of Dallas while Digger tried to strike it rich in the
Daughter of Rebecca and Herbert Wentworth got stuck with the Barnes family later in her life. She hated the whole thing.
She hated he mother was married before her father and that she was not her mother's only child. She hated not being her mother's
solo star. She loved Pam some what, but wanted Pamela's life with Bobby. Being as evil as JR she did everything she could
to break up Bobby and Pam to have him all for herself. She achieved it when they divorced. Still she did not get want she
wanted. Bobby had no interest in her. He now wanted Jenna Wade. If she wasn't mad enough about that she was truly mad about
having Cliff Barnes as her brother. She hated him. She did everything to bring him down. When her mother died and left Wentworth
Industries in thirds, giving one-third to her, one third to Pam and the last to Cliff, Katherine was truly pissed. She left
Dallas to come back and kill Bobby. Though her coming back turned out to be a dream of Pam's and Bobby was alive. When
Pam was in a car accident a year or so later she came back to kill Pam. After all Pam got Bobby back again and she never got
him at all. Katherine was the female JR with a crazier side.
