Three Carnleys buried in the old Miller Cemetery south of Paxton, Fl are Rev G. M. Carnley 1842-1914, Ella Mason Carnley (no dates), and George Carnley Jr, "Son of Rev. G. M. Carnley and Martha Ann Lassiter Carnley." Carnley website shows a George James Carnley as child of George M. and Martha Ann, but no George Jr. Cemetery website is at http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/fl/walton/cemetery/miller.txt

Carnley website shows two George Albert Carnleys. The page for the George Albert Carnley 1820- ?, shows spouses as "Unknown" and "Frances Louise Brown." If you click on "Unknown," you get a marriage date of 1845. If you click on "Frances Louise Brown," you get a marriage date of 8 October 1893, when he would have been 73, and a child named Emma J Carnley born 7 August 1900 - Unk., when he would have been 80.

Carnley website for George Carnley 1856 - ? m. bef 1897, shows spouse as "fanny."

A Frances Louise/Fanny Lou Brown was the second wife of Garland Walden 1849/50-19??, my ggrandfather. He is buried in Miller cemetery with Louisa Busbee 1847-?, and presumably Fanny Lou Brown. There is no stone, but the concrete border around the plot has the letters F.L. cut into it, along with "Louisa Walden" in block letters.

A granddaughter of Fanny Lou tells me that Garland and Fanny Lou were married in 1908, and that Fanny Lou's name is Frances Louise Brown. My mother told me that Fanny Lou lived from 1885 to 1913. The two children from this marriage were Robert Aubrey Walden 1911-1938 and Huey Wilson Walden 1913-?

Could the Frances Louise/Fanny Lou Brown who married Garland Walden in 1908 be the same Frances Louise Brown shown as spouse for George Albert Carnley, or the "Fanny" shown as the spouse for George Carnley 1856-? m. bef. 1897?

This is an interesting little mystery. Maybe the descendants/close relatives of Emma J. Carnley, child of George Albert and Francis Louise, can answer this.

Many thanks.
