Hi Leona!
First, I have no concrete info for you. I don't want to get your hopes up. I'm just a volunteer on these boards who thinks like a database.

I read your story on the Barlow page. What a fascinating journey you have been on. If I can help you, I would like to.

Can you explain (either here or via can get my email address by clicking on my name) the DNA results? I understand DNA and the testing, but what type of testing did you have done? What do the list of surnames mean? Why was Plumlee left out of some of your postings? Have you given up on the Barlow aspect?

As you probably did also, I have found all these surnames in Wise Co., c. 1910-1930. Acutally, they are all there in 1920, although I think one may have been missed or the spelling massacred. Anyway, finding them all is rather amazing, since Wise Co. is not that big and some of the names are a bit unusual. But since DNA may reflect generations back (in the case on mitochondria DNA), the fact the names are in Wise Co. may not be particularly relevant. That's why I was asking about the type of testing (and please talk to me like I know nothing, as the pieces I know about DNA go back to a chemistry class in college, which was a long time ago!).

Anyway, I may have other ideas for you if I understand better what the DNA testing & names mean.

Good luck! I hope you find the info you are looking for!
