I noticed your post and had some comments and questions for you. First, where were your Barnes' women born? Or, atleast where did the census say they were born?
My 3rd great grandfather John Barnes died in Pettis TWP, Platte, Missouri about 1846. He had married a Martha (Rogers?) who I believe to be the daughter of John Rogers and Sarah Lynch. As of yet, I have no verification of that. Anyway, there are a few Mooneyhams from TN that were interrelated with these Rogers/Lynch/Bowen/Cain families (and my 1 Barnes guy; all these families passed through TN). There are a few Mooneyhams listed in John Barnes' probate record. Not only that, but I found your James J. and Joseph William on an Ancestry Tree and it said they had a brother named Joseph James Mooneyham and he married an Elizabeth Rogers in Platte County. Yes, I know those trees are notoriously incorrect, but still it's something to look into.
Also, I have still never found my John Barnes in the census, but his two sons both say he was born in Alabama. I have absolutely no idea who his parents or even when he was born. I believe he married Martha (Rogers?) about 1840.
"Joseph William, James J. (probably Joseph), Erwin, and Joseph James were the sons of: James and Lydia Mooneyham of Cocke Co., TN." -- This is from Ancestry. I find it kinda hard to believe that parents would name one son James Joseph and another Joseph James. Maybe they are the same person.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
