Richard Barnes b. abt 1723 in St Mary's County, Maryland migrated to North Carolina and married Catherine Unk. They settled in Rowan County, NC. They had at least nine children - one of whom was Shadrack who has a geneology [sic] written by Pinckney G. McElwee in 1952 and 1958. Another of Richard's children is Sarah (Sally) Barnes born about 1758. McElwee notes that this Sarah eventually married Gerard Hooe of King George County, Virginia but the dates do not square. Other material indicates that this North Carolina Sarah married a Randall Sims, but I can't find documentation of that and don't know if she remained in Rowan County when her brothers moved on to Kentucky.
The Sarah (Sally) Barnes (b. 1742) who married Gerard Hooe in King George County, Virginia is apparently descended from a Richard Barnes who was living in Richmond Virginia. I found the date from a transcription of the gravestone. I'm wondering how this Richard fits into the Abraham Barnes line from Maryland. I do note that Gerard and Sarah named a child Abram and I did not find Abram or Abraham common in the Hooe lines.
So I'm looking for information on both Sarahs or either Sarah. The limits of this form will not let me enter but one of the WikiTree IDs so here are both:
North Carolina Sarah: Barnes-4563 and Virginia Sarah: Barnes-4567
And Shadrack named one daughter Sarah (b. 1787 in Kentucky, but that one was easy).
