What do we know about the Barnes mentioned below? They seem to fit with your
Wade outline.

I am from James Barnes m1 Unknown m2 Hannah Coomes, thought to be the d/o
Edward Coomes, s/o Joseph Coomes. Hannah Coomes m1 William Hines and was the
mother of Col. Andrew Hynes who founded Elizabethtown, KY. [Please note my
comments at the very bottom.]

I'm from James Barnes' wife number one.... there were no children with
Hannah Coomes; it was a "September" marriage. Here's what I have:

History of Bedford, Somerset and Fulton Counties, Pennsylvania; Chicago:
Waterman, Watkins & Co., 1884, p. 666 [Chapter XCVI, Union Twp. Fulton County]

Barnes' Gap settlement, named in honor of James Barnes, who came from
England and settled near Baltimore, Maryland, from whence he came with a company in
the year 1777 and located at an old Indian camp, in what is now known as
Barnes' Gap, Ray's Hill. He made a clearing, but followed hunting principally.
He was a slaveowner, one slave accompanying him. He had four sons and three
daughters: Abel, Elijah, Samuel, Archibald, Nancy Bell, Jemima, Ruth. They all,
excepting Abel, went to Kentucky. Abel married Miss Mary Pool, of Maryland,
and remained in the Gap until his death, aged ninety-one years. He followed
hunting and farming; he reared eight children, five sons and three daughters:
Catharine, Mahala, Eliza Jame, Abel, Lloyd, Samuel, Geo W., Archibald. Abel
Barnes married Miss Margaret Bishop, and still lives in the Gap. He is a
carpenter by trade, but follows farming and hunting; has a family of five
children: Geo W., Eliza Jame, Margaret Ann, Louisa and Savannah. They have all been
noted for their skill in hunting. Each generation, from the great-grandfather
down, have been violinists.

Linda --
James Hamilton married Mary Ann Coomes, d/o Thomas Coomes & Elizabeth
Wharton of Charles Co., MD. They had a son named Alexander Hamilton, m1 Harriet
Edelen, m2 Theresa Osbourn m3 Elizabeth Sarah Smith, m4 Lucinda Hayden. My
family lore said they were related to Alexander Hamilton which was mistaken for
THE Alexander Hamilton of George Washington's fame and would often say "if
you want to know my lineage, here it is." And they would whip out a ten-dollar
bill... which of course was wrong. Thomas Coomes & Elizabeth Wharton were the
parents of William Coomes who married Jane Frances Unknown.
