One conclusion, I've been thinking about upon reviewing my collection of notebooks is that Arthur Carney isn't the Father of Carney in TN, but is of Choctaw Carney as Trader, they are related to the lineage though, John Carney is top of the TN Carney, MS Carney, AL Carney. AL Carney John Carney and Mary A married in Maury County T.n, were in MS moved to Washing County, AL part Choctaw County AL by 1850. The MS Carney have oral tradition that their line is Ikenaby John Carney and Sally. Sally was an "Orphan" taken in by TN Carney. I think somewhere along the line Sally last name was handed down as Carney before marriage, however Ikenaby took the name of John Carney when he .moved to MS according to June, he became John Jr, then John Sr when he had a son John.then down the line there is a son John each generation. There's nobody named Arthur.
At After MS Choctaw removals a Treaty was made where Choctaw could become citizens but had to give up Indian Ways. Which we lost, but was remembered by the elders, details can get fuzzy, but Hese are consistent with
"The name John goes way back"
"John was Choctaw"
"Ikenaby registered to become a citizen if M.s"
Wards Register (reg of Choctaw wishing to become citizens according to 1830 Treaty May 1831 Iklanabbee - children under 10 none over 10 3
Official spelling of Ikenaby on Choctaw record
Iklanabbee : Ik lan abbee. Ik lan abi
Itiibapishi toba (to become brother or sister) and Issish iklanna (Literally "Half blood" )
Abi to kill or loosely Warrior
Choctaws in a Revolutionary Age by Greg Obrien
Ikenaby is the way name appears in Article MS newspaper and handed down in genealogy by Rials family , granddaughter of IK Sally who married Moses Rial.
Tilton, MS relatives say he changed name to John when he Ikenaby married Sally ? Orphan taken in by TN Carney
So, the translation of his name
Ikenaby is literally a half blood Warrior John Carney
It was customary for a Choctaw to change or be given other names to commemorate an important event.
