Lookig for info on the Tennessee Karnes

Does anyone have any information on the Karnes of Tennessee? My grandmother's father was John Allison Karnes of Nashville born in the late 1800's and he was married to Fannie Middleton of Nashville.

There were nine brothers and sisters in that branch of my family. I can provide info on almost all.

My grandmother told me that the family originated in Germany and a preacher from Germany named Karnes came to this country in the early 1700s to Virginia and founded churches up and down the Appalachian chain.
