      John Carney is said to have been a soldier in the Revolutionary War in the East, and to have lost two sons in the American Army. One account says Thomas Carney was in the Patriot Army also, but he would have been but fifteen when peace was proclaimed, so I think it doubtful if it be correct.

Came to Jackson county (then Mason) about 1813 from the Buckhannon, Upshur county, settlements, with his son, Thomas. Settled about a half-mile about the Harpold Ford on Mill Creek. Deceased before 1820 as he is not listed on the Mason County census for that year.
