James Barnes and family moved to Barnes Gap, Ray's
Hill, located in southern Bedford Co. (now Fulton
Co.), PA in 1777. This is very near the MD border.
They came from MD, originally the Baltimore area. The
person living on adjoining land in PA is a Caleb
Barnes and wife Honor Stephens of Baltimore. Caleb
moved to PA in 1770. Because of DNA tests, we know
James and Caleb share a common ancestor. James and
family move to KY. where James dies in Nelson Co. in
late 1795. Due to the age of his oldest child and the
age of his last wife, James was likely born ca. 1720.
James' children are Abel, Mary Bell, Ruth, Samuel,
Jemima, Elijah and Archibald. Abel returns to Barnes
Gap, PA, marries Mary Poole and has 8 children; 1.
Mahala, who marries Adam Zembower 2. Abel, m. Margaret
Bishop 3. Catherine 4. Lloyd, m. Eliza Smith 5. Eliza
Jane, m. Jacob Snider 6. Samuel, m. Cordelia ? 7.
