Does anyone have any information on Marion Vachel (called by) Carnes (b.May 26, 1868 - d. flu Feb 17, 1920)? I am trying to determine his parents. Family altzheimer accounts say his mother was a Carnes and his father may have been Tom Funderburke, from whom he "acquired" land in 1918 in Union Co. NC that is still belongs to family today. An 1880 census from Chesterfield, SC lists a child named Vachel Carnes, also 3 other children (we always thought he was an "only") and his mother,Eliza Carnes as sister-in-law to J.S. Pate, head of household. I am also checking with Pates to see if they have any info to verify if this is my Vachel and his mother. Vachel married Addie Lou Threatt (b.June 1 1869 - d. August 23, 1954) on Feb. 9, 1887.From the 1880 census, I believe her parents were B.T. Threatt (b.ca 1805-7 - d. 1894) and Priscilla Margaret Deese Threatt (b. ca 1827 - d. 1906).I would also like to know what was B.T.'s name and who were his parents.
