I have a puzzle for all of you. It has to do with two CARNEY men that
I have yet to definitely connect, but who are very likely to be related
in some manner.
Starting with Jacob SCOTT he had two lovely daughters (he had more, but
for this scenario we are only going to discuss two of them). Those
girls were Martha Ann SCOTT b. April 01, 1848 in Putnam Co., IN d.
January 12, 1929 in AR. and her younger sister Malinda SCOTT b. April
28, 1850 in probably IN d. November 13, 1930 Milton-Freewater, Umatilla
1. Martha married Jonathan (John) L. POYNER and they had a son named
Jesse James POYNER who married Galeenah CARNEY. Galeenah's father's
name was Chesterfield Monroe Carney b. March 1849 Port Royal, Montgomery
County, Tennnessee d. December 29, 1928 Ft. Smith, Sebastian Co., AR he
was s/o Harry D. CARNEY and Sarah MURPHY. At age ll Chesterfield had
disappeared from the face of the earth and didn't surface again for 32
years when he married my great grandmother Columbia Porter BRANHAM in
1892, Crawford County, Arkansas.
In trying to figure out where he was I and other researchers have found
his name mutilated in many ways, ranging from Carny, Corny,Carey,
Corney, etc. On ancestry for the 1900 census the index shows him as
Cluster F. Corny. I've found him as CM and CF as well, not to mention
the possiblity of the variations of Monroe (his middle name).
One researcher recently showed up a Ches. Carey born PA (not TN) on the
soldier's site on ancestry that is the right age to be my Chesterfield
Carney, married to a Louisa Vickery in MO. Could he have gone to his
northern relatives as a Union Sympathizer?
He once told a grandchild that asked what he did in the Civil War that
they put young boys in prison for stealing the horse's corn to eat. Was
That would be a long stretch, but Jacob SCOTT was in MO at one time.
In that afore mentioned 1900 census Cluster F.(Chesterfield) is listed
in the home of Mary ALEXANDER.
Jacob Scott's second wife was Ellenore Ellen (ALEXANDER) COUCH/KUTCH.
Yet another long stretch, but a similarity.
2. Malinda Scott married Samuel VANCIL, they had a daughter Anna Genetta
who married Uzal Wesley CARNEY on October 12, 1898 in probably OR. He
was b. 1874 in possibly IL or KY and died 1939 in OR.
Uzal was the s/o Francis S. CARNEY and Martha Sophronia Perry d/o Uzal
Perry. The Apr 1910 census lists Uzal as born in IL. It says his father
was Ire-English, and his mother was born in IL. Sam and Malinda VANCIL
were living with Uzal and Anna in Apr 1910 in South Milton Pct.,
Apr 1910 census South Milton Pct., Umatilla, OR family 210, Farmer,
The name Uzal has been found mutilated to Usual and the Hebrew spelling
of it is Uziel or Uzeil (forget which ds said when he looked it up for me).
Both Uzal and Chesterfield married the same generation of Jacob SCOTT's
That's the tale I have so far. I feel these two men are related in some
way, but where do I look next? Anyone have any suggestions? Jan who
just knows that all of this ties together in a neat package some how in OK
