CARNEY, HOLLAND, OVERSTREET posted by Toni on July 31, 1997

My ancestors, James OVERSTREET and Susanna HOLLAND, were married in Crawford County in 1817. In 1819 they appear in Edwards County. James died in 1839. His estate was probabed without a will. It notes that there is no widow, which leads me to believe that both James and Susanna died by 1839. William Henry Harrison OVERSTREET entered the action. He was then 21. There were minor children. I believe that one of these was Milton OVERSTREET who appears in the Crawford County census in 1850. His father in law, Thomas CARNEY, appeared on his behalf in this court action. Does anyone know about my Hollands and Overstreets? Carney?
