  • Notes 
    • ARTICLE ON MARILLA IN THE DEC. 1989 OF "THE CARNEY CHRONICLES" SAYS THAT MARILLA WAS THE 3RD CHILD AND 1ST DAUGHTER OF JOSHUA AND SINA. THE ARTICLE GOES ON FARTHER TO SAY THAT THE 1ST OF HER HALF-SIBLINGS WAS BORN ABT 1845 BUT I DO NOT HAVE DATA ON THAT CHILD. SEE MESSAGE LINE FOR SON, WILLIAM FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON MANILLA. MANILLA LIKED TO TELL HER CHILDREN THIS STORY: IT TOOK PLACE AFTER THE CIVIL WAR WHEN THE SLAVES HAD BEEN FREED AND SOME OF THEM HAD NO PLACE TO GO. HER BROTHERS AND SOME OF THEIR CARNEY COUSINS LIKED TO GET TOGETHER IN THE EVENING AFTER THE CHORES WERE DONE. A CEMETERY LAY BETWEEN THE TWO FARMS. ONE EVENING, WHEN HER BROTHERS KNEW THE COUSINS WERE ON THEIR WAY, THEY WENT TO THE CEMETERY AND LAID DOWN IN ONE OF THE SUNKEN GRAVES. AS THE COUSINS HURRIED PAST THEM, ;THE BROTHERS ROSE UP OUT OF THE GRAVE BLOWING A TIN HORN. A FREED SLAVE WHO HAD SOUGHT REFUGE IN A NEARBY SUNKEN GRAVE ROSE UP AND SAID, "AIN'T NO NEED TO BLOW NO HORN, MASSA! HERE AH IS."
