Adam ARNEY, born in 1797, in Virginia, and died between 1870-1880.
Is listed in the US Federal Census
State of Tennessee, Overton County, in 1820, 1830, 1840, 1860, 1870
State of Kentucky, Cumberland County, in 1850.
Adam ARNEY, is believed to the the 1st son, of Peter ARNEY (1772-1845).
Since the US Federal Census, doesn't list individuals (besides Head of Household) until 1850, it's difficult to ascertain exactly who Adam Arney's children specifically were.After all, he would have been 53, in 1850.
In the 1850 US Federal Census, State of Kentucky, Cumberland County, we find Adam Arney and family:
Adam Arney, male, 51, married, Carpenter, born in Virginia
Nancy Arney, female, 48, married, born in Tennessee
John Arney, male, 25, born in Tennessee
W J Arney, male, 21, born in Tennessee
Mary A Arney, female, 18, born in Tennessee
Emily Arney, female, 13, born in Tennessee
Martin A Arney, male, 15, born in Tennessee
M J Arney, female, 9, born in Tennessee
By the time of the 1860 US Federal Census, State of Tennessee, Overton County, we find Adam Arney and family:
Adam Arney, male, 63, Farmer, born in Virginia
Nancy Arney, female, 63, born in Tennessee
Martha Arney, female, 16, born in Tennessee
Near him we also find:
Isiah Britton, male, 30, Farm Laborer, born in Tennessee
Emiline Britton, female, 22, born in Tennessee
John Arney, male, 30, Farmer, born in Tennessee
Sarah Arney, female, 30, born in Tennessee
Due to the proximity of Emiline Britton and John Arney, it's highly likely these were Adam Arney's daughter and son.
The last one we find Adam Arney in, 1870 US Federal Census, State of Tennessee, Overton County:
Adam Arney, male, 73, Farmer, born in Virginia
Nancy Arney, female, 71, Keeping house, born in Tennessee
John Arney, male, 49, Farmer, born in Tennessee
Mary Arney, female, 29, House keeper, born in Tennessee
George W Arney, male, 7, born in Tennessee
Now, we can see that Adam Arney and his Wife, Nancy are still alive, at this point.
We can gather the "possibility", that the John Arney, is their son, John.
We can gather the "possibility", that the Mary Arney, is their daughter, M J.
I know, very little about Adam Arney, and his family.As the 1st son of my ancestor, Peter Arney (the Tennessee Arney Patriarch), I should know much more, but I don't.
Other than these Census documents, and his failed attempt to contest his father's (Peter's) "unofficial Will", I know very little about Adam Arney.
Can anyone else, shed some "genealogy" light, on the life of Adam Arney?
Thank you, for your time, consideration, and cooperation, I truly appreciate it.
