    John Carney was born April 15, 1757 in Frederick Co., Virginia (now Berkeley Co., West Virginia), this date taken from his own statement in his pension application. He was the son of Thomas Carney and Sarah Pemberton.

    He was living in Botetourt Co., Virginia when he enlisted for service in the Revolutionary War, in June 1776, and again in 1777, for a total of twelve months under the command of Colonel William Christian, who “commanded a punitive expedition against the Cherokee Overhill towns along the Great Indiana Warpath in 1776”.

    John married Margaret Lloyd, his first cousin, sometime before Sept. 25, 1779, as their signatures are on a deed of that date when they sold property John had inherited from his uncle, John Carney in 1775.

    John and Margaret Carney afterward lived in Washington Co., Tennessee; Scott Co., Kentucky; and moved to Jennings Co., Indiana in 1819. He applied for a military pension from Jennings Co. in 1832, which was granted, $40 per year, payable in Sept. of each year.

    In 1835, John Carney purchased 80 acres of land in Bartholomew Co. (W 1/2, NE 1/4, Section 19, T6, R9), and he and Margaret moved onto this land.

    John Carney was listed as a veteran of the Revolution on the 1840 census in Bartholomew Co., residing in the household of his son, Pleasant Carney. Censuses were typically taken late in the year, October and November.

    The “Roster of Soldiers and Patriots of the American Revolution Buried in Indiana” gives John Carney’s date of death as “after September 4, 1840” and burial place as “probably buried south of Columbus, Indiana.” His wife, Margaret, died Aug. 1, 1844 in Bartholomew County, Indiana and is buried in the Friendship Baptist Graveyard, known in later years as the Bick Farm Cemetery. Family lore, documented in a 1923 letter, confirms the burials here, and also states that John and Margaret died within three weeks of each other, although the writer was uncertain which died first.
