Humphreys County TN tax list show a John A. Cearnall. His name is spelled Ceamall on the marriage license when he married Susan H. Duncan in 1867. Susan Duncan is a sister to my ancestor, James Neal Duncan, so I have been tracing her. She and John moved to Calloway County KY between 1874 and 1880 where he appears on the census as John A. Carnell. His name is spelled Camell on the 1900 census and Carnell on the 1910 of Calloway County. However, he is listed as John A.Ceamall on the 1870 census of Humphreys County TN with his wife Susan, son Thomas, stepson John Stanfield and mother in law Jane Duncan. The question is whether the census taker misspelled the name or the person transcribing the census records. There is another Ceamal in the 1860 Humphreys County TN census. It appears to be W.H. with wife Angelina.
