Bruce, Ivey was my great-grandfather's (Calvin Conner) younger brother. I am working on Calvin's Civil War military history now.
Ivey and Calvin must have been pretty close because they both moved out of Jones County around the same time and changed their last names to Carney. Also, my dad said he remembers his dad talking about Ivey.
