About OUR PRECIOUS MEMORIES - Carnes Heritage Tree
Welcome to our family tree site.  I ask that you be kind in your comments and patient, as I am 
disabled at a young age, 56, and in daily pain.  Thank you for coming to the site and I hope and 
pray that what I have amassed here somehow helps you in your quest for information on your 

May I please request that all who log in to view the site to please help keep the site limited to 
family and relatives access only, and you the invited guest.  If you feel you have ancestors in 
this tree, please provide me with information that can be verified so that you may be able to 
access the site.  If your information cannot be verified, unfortunately you won't be allowed in. 
Also, if you have been given access it is up to you to remember the password or pass code that YOU 
have set up for yourself personally.  I do not have access to your password or pass code. If you 
can't remember your access information and need to have a new invitation sent, that will require 
cancelling your old access and issuing a new one and you will have to wait over night to receive 
your new invitation.  Please be safe and write it down in a safe place you will remember. 

The 2011 Carnes Family Reunion was held in it's usual location, Trinity United Methodist 
Church Fellowship Hall on Trinity Church Road, Monroe, Union, NC.  This year we had 41 attendees 
which was great and we appreciate and love each and everyone of you who was able to attend, and 
pray that others who were not able to attend will be with us next year, we missed you and love 

In building the Carnes Heritage Tree I have dedicated the site to my father, Marvin 
Eugene (Gene) Carnes, Sr. and my mother, Gertrude Genora Mills Carnes, who have now 
both left this earthly place to be with GOD OUR FATHER AND CREATOR.

There are many, many family lines in this tree.  Many lines can be extremely 
removed from the Carnes line but bear in mind, everyone is connected in this 
tree. I appreciate information on families included in this tree if I have 
something incorrect please email me with the correct information, I strive to have 
correct data.  If I am missing some information please email me with the missing 
information.  If your family line is connected to anyone in this tree I would love to 
add your tree info and photos with ours.

This is not just my family tree, if you are listed here it is yours also and I 
strive to have the correct data on you and your family and ancestors, so by 
all means please be kind and help to make it the best there is by submitting your 
correct info to me if I have something not completely correct.

It may take me a little time to get all corrections in and uploaded, please be 
patient with me.  It is my goal to connect as many families together whether you be 
Carnes, Carns, Hinson, Karnes, Mills, Starnes, Fincher, Lathan, Beaver, Deas, Dease, 
Laney, Funderburk, Gribble or Griffin just to name a few. I would love for this site 
to be a place where anyone whose family surname is listed here to be able to find 
their ancestors or at least enough to give them a solid starting point. 

I would also like to express my gratitude for my ancestor the Revenand Jacob 
Carnes who was fundamental in bringing the gospel and Methodist faith to the 
Buford Township area, along with others such as David Bruce, eager to spread 
the gospel through the Methodist faith, helped in establishing the Methodist 
churches in the area, along with the help of his wife Mary.  Those brave souls 
who fought during the American Revolutionary War for our freedom, saw fit to 
choose Jacob as their Chaplin during the war to guide and inspire them with 
the word of God and also preside over burial of fallen soldiers.

******The Carnes ancestors originally resided in Scotland and migrated to***** 
Ireland in 1610 when it is said King James I of Great Britain granted Alexander 
Cairns, his cousin, two thousand acres of land in the County of Donegal in Northern 
Ireland. The original Carnes estate was located near Edinburgh, Scotland, and 
the Cairns Castle stood there until it was disassembled in about 1906. The 
spelling of Carnes in 1349 A.D. was deCaryns. The spelling changed to Cairns 
and thereafter to Carnes, Karnes and Carns. The Cairns Castle was located near East 
and West Cairns Mountains. Cairn is a Gaelic term meaning "a mound of rocks" and such 
mounds were either boundary markers, battle site memorials, or memorials to 
deceased people.
