Nicholas Karns

I am a descendent of Nicholas Karn/Karns through his daughter Catherine who married Henry Bar/Barr/Bare. I need any information on Nicholas that you would be willing to share. My research shows a Nicholas Karn Sr. born 1687 and died 1749 with wife Margaret born 1687 and died before 1770 and Nicholas Karn Jr. born in 1727 and died before 1798, married Eva Elizabeth ? Bowman in 1759. she was widow of Hans Heinrich Bowman. Information found in "First Families of America." Karn/Carn/Carns found in "History of Rockingham Co., VA." Marriage records in same County show several Carn/Carns and"Supplement to History of Rockingham Co., VA." also show William Karn born 1725 and died 18 Aug 1800, married #2 Marie Salome Baer, ca 1767. She was born 1758/60 daughter of Melchoir Bar II and Eva Christman his second wife. With further research, I believe I will find that Nicholas Jr. and Eva Elizabeth are the parents of Catherine Karn/Carn who married Henry Barr/Baer/Bare. Years of births/deaths and marriages make it likely she was the dauther of Nicholas Jr. and Eva Elizabeth.
Catherine birth is unknown. We do know she married about 1788. We know Nicholas Karn was stated as her father on the marriage records. Her first child Susannah "Sally" was born in 1791 in Rockingham Co., VA. My 3rd great grandfather Adam Bare/Barr born in 1795. There were ten children all together.Any help on the Karn/Karns family would be very much appreciated.
