  • Notes 
    • This William is mentioned in a lawsuit in May 1813, Adams County. In this lawsuit, William is mentioned as having died without children, and in his Will, his considerable wealth was to be distributed to his nephews, Arthur Carney of the Choctaw Nation and William Carney of Georgia.

      John Cummins and Nancy/Ann Breashears, guardians .
      Testimony taken from Samuel Gibson of Port Gibson states that Arthur Carney took possession of some cash found in a trunk following the death of William Carney SR. Marian (aka Maria) & Elizabeth were heirs of Arthur Carney. John Taylor is Wm Carney's Att'y. (See WM Brocus VS Thomas Crabb) William Carney was Samuel Gibson's Uncle. WM Carney Sr. who died Jan 2, 1795 left his entire estate to his nephews. Arthur Carney of the Choctaw Nation & William Carney then of Camden Co. Ga. Arthur Carney deceived Williams as to the value of this estate and William accepted payment of $800.00 for his part witnessed by WM Davis & Rees when the estate was really worth more than $10,000
      William Carney states that he was born Feb 28, 1779 and was therefore under age 21 at that time; and that he came to the MS Territory in 1806 and found out the truth about this estate.
