James Carney and Sarah England ... immigrated to Canada then to NY in 1840; they lived in Rensalaer Falls and Massena.

Okay, I see your ancestry tree. Any of their childrens' death certs could possible yield a county/townland in IRE ... it happened in my own research, same timeframe. A lone bachelor child's cert provided both counties in IRE, where no other US doc helped.

Any baptismal records on these Carney kids? Any Carney sibs as godparents?

And you have to love Whiteside County's history collection:

And I keep running into the VT Carneys - here is a James enlisting in the Army out of Burlington VT, born IRE,

Maybe James is part of this family? One of the 3 born in IRE.
