I know the early Barnes people of my tree that came to Nelson County around 1790. They were the father, James Barnes who died there in 1795. His children who accompanied him there were Samuel and Elijah who married Lydia and Rachel Willcocks, Archibald who married Sarah "Sally" Atherton and move to Larue County, and Jemima who married James Hamilton. Not all Barnes folks around Nelson County are likely from these people, but I'd guess many are. I'd like to hear from anyone who thinks they might connect to this group. Maybe we can each learn something new.
