The Foundation

This page is called "The Brickmason's Sons" because several members of the Carney family who came to America after 1855 were brick and stone masons. Their hands built some of the first brick buildings in Bay City, Michigan, my home town, and several of those buildings still stand and are being used today.  Those Carney family members eventually left Bay City and scattered to Detroit, Cleveland, New York, and beyond.  Perhaps you may be related to one of them?

The CARNEY (and KEARNEY, and variants) mailing list is a publically accessible mailing list that you can post your queries to.  You can subscribe to the list by sending a message to CARNEY-L-request@rootsweb.com that contains the word subscribe and nothing else.
