For the Carnathan line I have: George Hays Carnathan, 1858-1945; William George Carnathan,1834-1897; George Hays Carnathan, 1805-1840, born in Ireland; and, Hugh Carnathan or Carnahan, b.1780 in Ireland.
I have two problems. 1. I cannot locate any further information on Hugh Carnathan other than the name of his wife, Mary Dunn -born about 1800. 2.The Hays connection.The name Hays is used by succeeding generations which indicates a connection. There is abundant information about Charles Hays (1834-1879)of Hays Mouint, Boligee, Greene County, Al. He was son of George Hayes and Anne Miller Beville, and grandson of Charles Hayes and Hannah Sommerville, the latter fron Northern Ireland to South Carolina.The name George is used throughout the Carnathan line.My Grandfather was William George Carnathan who practiced medicine in Butler, Choctaw County, Alabama (1882-1940).
