Not a Carey but have a Carey/Cary GG grandmother.
Eliza Ann Carey married Daniel Hendrick Jr 1832 Charlotte Co Va
Her father was Richard Carey 1786 ~ 1859
Charlotte Co Va --> Campbell Co Va
He fell out of the sky sometime in the early 1800's and landed in Charlotte Co
I suspect his father may be a James Carey, as both his first born son was James and Eliza's first son was a James Daniel.
Richard also may have served in the War of 1812
Bill Carey, I stopped searching around 06, burnout mostly.
But this DNA opens up a whole new territory.
IF the Carey project members would at least upload their profiles to gedmatch.com set their profile to public so others can compare their DNA a lot of progress would be made.
As it is....
