Sorting out the Carnes

Several weeks ago I came across  two anniversary announcements and an obituary for a James Carnes that I found interesting. James C Carnes, according to clippings, came to the Joplin MO area as a young boy with is father Squire, a brother and a sister from western Kansas.. After a little research I found that the 'C' is for Clark, Clark was the name of Squire's brother and, as we know, the Carnes tend to use family names. Squire also had a brother named James. This James was born in 1873 so the time frame fits. This area is also near where Squire's brother was living in 1900. 

Here are links to images of the clippings.
