CHARLES G. CARNEY, one of the substantial farmers of Noble township and a worthy representative of one of the highly honored families of this county, is a native of this locality, having been born in Rushville on July 26, 1881, and is the son of H. S. and Eva G. (Downey) Carney, the former a native of Ripley county, Indiana, and the latter born and reared in Noble township, this county. H. S. Carney was brought by his parents to Rush county in his young boyhood, and was here reared and educated, and here he and his wife spent their lives, the mother dying on October 30, 1920. Mr. Carney was a veteran of the Civil war, having served his country for four years as a member of the Fifty-second regiment, Indiana Volunteer Infantry. They became the parents of three children, those besides the subject of this sketch being Harriet, Ellen and Zora. Charles G. Carney received a good practical education in the common schools of Noble township, and after the completion of his studies he remained with his father on the home farm until his marriage, when he began farming on his own account on the place where he now lives. At the same time he rented 115 acres of land from his father, and has increased this until at present he is farming about 300 acres. Energetic, discriminating and of sound judgment, Mr. Carney has proven himself a man of more than ordinary caliber and is numbered among the successful farmers of Noble township. He keeps his place well improved and attractive and its general appearance reflects great credit on him. He puts in about 120 acres to corn and practically the same amount to small grain, and also gives some attention to live stock, feeding out about 100 head of hogs a year. In 1902 Mr. Carney was married to Grace Wilson, the daughter of Edward and Florence Wilson, and they are the parents of three children: Dwight W., Florence G. and H. S. Jr. Mr. and Mrs. Carney are active members of the Little Flat Rock Christian Church. Fraternally, Mr. Carney is a member of the Free and Accepted Masons, while his political affiliations are with the Republicans.
