Carey Family Book


The president of our family organization, E. Niel Carey, asked me to contribute a chapter to a book he was going to publish and I was asked to write about the Careys of Millsboro. They are one of the many Delmarva Carey family groups and ours descends from Elijah W. Carey, through his second wife. I decided to focus upon my Grandfather Carey, their only offspring, and as the summer of 2019 progressed, my chapter “The Careys of Millsboro” began to take shape.

The Carey/Cary Family book consists of 17 chapters, all containing a wealth of relevant Carey family information. You can view the table of contents here. For a link to my chapter click here. All proceeds go to the family organization and to cover publication costs.

The book was released at the annual reunion held at the Nabb Research Center, Guerrieri Academic Commons, Salisbury University, on November 2, 2019. Officially titled “The Carey/Cary Family: Researching, Connecting and Sharing Family History”, it is now available online at these and other locations:



Barnes & Noble
