Research information was sent to the Davidson County Cemetery Survey on February 16, 2004, by Glenda Carney, a descendant of Elijah Carney, a brother of Vincent Carney. She reported that Ebeline Carney Moses, who was buried in the Vincent Carney Cemetery, was the wife of Henley Moses and the daughter of Vincent Carney. A number of years ago, a grave marker bearing the name of “Polly Carney” had been seen by Glenda Carney’s father in the Vincent Carney Cemetery. To view the inscriptions for Elijah Carney, in the nearby cemetery called “Carney Cemetery,” please return to the Cemetery Index.
