I received new information about Thomas Barnes of Haywood County NC who later moved to Cocke County TN.

For the longest time we believed that Thomas Barnes was an brother or rather half brother to Henry Barnes and we thought perhaps that Thomas Barnes was an child of Mariah Barnes and Peter Owen per the bastardy bond but based on this new information it is thought that Thomas Barnes might be an brother to Mariah Barnes instead and might be an uncle to Henry Barnes but we don’t know for sure so due to this new information received on Thomas Barnes we are needing a male descendant of Thomas Barnes would need to take an Y-dna test to determine if he is Mariah’s sibling or half-sibling, or her child with Peter Owen.

If any male who descends from this Thomas Barnes is willing to take an Y-dna test we would appreciate it very much and debunk these theories we have about him!

Thanks in Advance.
