Saw your post regarding the migration and noticed your surname BARNES.
Would you, by any chance, have any info on the family of John Barnes who married Mary Sabra Christie, a Cherokee from the Highwassee River area. He is said to have died on the Trail of Tears. They had two known children... John R. Barnes and Redden Lafayette Barnes. Sabra and the children ended up in Newton County, Arkansas about 1834-1835 where she remarried into my BOWERS family.
Any response will be GREATLY appreciated.
