Here are some items that add color to Mrs. Carnes life; no obituary but clue on her birthdate. I assume Grant Carnes is related, based on location only.

Got A Pension.--E. P. Walker informs us that Mrs. Margaret Carnes of Lester township has received a pension of $1739 from Washington. Mrs. Carnes furnished three boys for the army during the rebellion, two of whom died in the service. The third died after his discharge. The original application was made several years ago, and has hung fire ever since. Mr. Walker recently wrote to Congressman Deering about the matter, and the result was an investigation by a special agent and his report is followed by the payment of the sum above mentioned. It comes in an opportune time, and will help Mrs. Carnes very materially. --Iowa State Reporter, Waterloo, Iowa (31 Jan 1883: 1)
