The CARAH family originates from
Cornwall County, England and was
once made up of numerous members
living in the Parishes of Breage,
Crowan, Camborne, and surrounding
areas. Most of the families were
engaged in copper or tin mining.
After 1860, some families migrated
to America and Australia. The American
families concentrated in the Copper
Mining District of the Upper Peninsula
of Michigan and another group went to
California to mine quartz gold in the
Sierra foothills in the 1870's. I am
from the latter group.
There are not many Carah's left, and
I do not think there is but a single
survivor in all of England. About 15
families live in the U.S. and about 25
I would like to share family information
with any interested party.
