Re: Info about Carnes family Lancaster, South Carolina?

In Reply to: Info about Carnes family Lancaster, South Carolina? by Angela Zimmerman of 1686

Angela, from all accounts both on the net and in family records, Carnes is not Native American (if that is what you mean by "if we did (immigrate) at all. I...think we are just plain old Americans." Actually the NA's also "immigrated" but much,much longer ago. So, we are all immigrants from somewhere and there is no such thing as "plain old Americans."
Since records show that Carnes were here in the Carolinas in the late 1600's and we were here before the great German immigration in the mid 1700's, and because the name origin is Welsh/Irish, most accounts say that even if port of exit was England(Liverpool) or Germany (any ports - immigrants often lived for 5 years before departure to earn passage), Carneses are Scots-Irish or Irish.
I still live in the Lancaster, SC area and you may find your family tree already online at this great web site You will certainly find a lot of info on our name origin and family histories.
Carnes is an old name in our country's history because we were some of the earliest settlers. Good Luck.
