Aaron Carnes and Martha Carnes died in a car crash 3 miles north of Pineville, KY on US-25 in Oct. 1938. I cannot find any of their kin on here. Can anyone help.

Their daughter, age 3 at the time, is my Grandmother who passed away recently. Her name was Geneva Carnes, but went by Geneva Bowman.

Michael, given the location and recency of their dates, I imagine that census and other documents could reveal some kin.  Please take the first step by adding what you know to WikiTree.

Here is Aaron's profile on FamilySearch which includes several sources and his death record in Bell County, Kentucky saying he died in a car crash. His parents are listed on the death record and as his parents on the tree connected to him on FamilySearch. His wife is not listed but this is a place to start.

Editing to add: In the sources there is a marriage record and it has listed the parents of both Aaron and his wife Martha Gamble.
