Comments: James McCartney is believed by the Webmaster to have been named James Francis McCartney. His son was so named and on his son's Death Certificate the name of James is given as James F. McCartney.  As the source was a grand daughter (Catherine McCartney, then the wife of Sam Carney), I trust the source as being likely to be accurate. James McCartney was said to have been born in Philadelphia and have come to Orange to help build the St. John's Church and School as a stone mason. The records indicate that although he may have come to the country through Philadelphia as many Irishmen did, he was born in Derry Ireland. He first appears, so far, in Orange in the 1860 Census (under the name McCourtney a name which rarely appears and I think is likely a mistaken taking of McCartney through a brogue) as the head of household with a Susan, age 60, and a Patrick, Hugh and Ellen. Patrick is a Stone Cutter and the other boys laborers. The marriage records of the others indicate they are the children of Hugh McCartney and Susan Carlon (also given as Carlin). I have not found any records for Hugh and Susan other than this 1860 Census (a Susan Carty in State record and McCartney in Church record marries a Martin Rowan or Ronan in 1864 or so, but they show up not again, perhaps she remarried and moved). James' parents are never given in any record. I can either presume that he is Hugh and Susan's child or that he is these folks cousin and is the parents of others (family history may say he came with cousins). If so, one possibility is that he came with Irving and Mary McCartney with their parents James and Catherine aboard the Bark Caroline in 1837. They move to western PA farm in 1840, then to a farm in Ohio in 1850 still with their young son James. Thereafter I have not found them them. It may be the wrong family or perhaps they moved on and James came east for work. If not, then I can find no immigration record to match through Philadelphia under McCartney. On November 5, 1860 in the Essex County Common Pleas Court James McCartney becomes Naturalized with Patrick McCartney as witness, both making their mark. In any case, James, Patrick and Hugh all show up with their new families in 1870 census (all with name McCarty listed in error and Hugh and James live next to each other) in Orange but Ellen has dissappeared. Thereafter they are easily tracked under the name McCartney only.
