  • Notes 
    • Jesse's tombstone is the only one still standing in the original family cemetary. Cheatham County was formed in 1856 from part of Davidson County.

      At time of 1840 Census, four Carney families owned adjacent properties in Davidson County, Tennessee:
      Ennis B. Carney 5 in household
      Jesse T. Carney 5 in household
      Joshua Carney 7 in household
      Willliam Carney 3 in household
      Asee (Asa) Carney 5 in household
      and nearby a Brinkley household with 8 persons.

      1850 Census Davidson Co. TN District 25

      Alt Mariage Date: 27 Feb 1828, Marion Co. for Jesse T. - Could Rev. Jesse C. Carney be another person?

      He and wife were land owners in North Davidson County on Little Marrowbone at the time of the Civil War. He received one or more land grants. Jesse owned slaves prior to war. The Civil War took both their livestock and their food. His grandson, Walter Davis, wound up living on a part of Jesse T. Carney's land at the time of Andrew Carnegie Davis's birth. The present house on that land has some of the original logs in its structure. Jesse T. Carney is buried on his former land; his tombstone is the only one there.
