Charney lived much of his early life as Charney "Dundelow". It is beleived that he was born about the year of 1779. Charney was the son of a Tuscarora Indian known as Chief Cucua Mucuca (better known as Chief Cucklemaker), and his wife Elizabeth Maria Callis Doneleaux. When Charney was about thirteen years of age, his father, Chief Cucklemaker was ambushed and shot to death about the year of 1792, at the same site where the Ross Baptist Church building now stands. Since Charney was still a child at his father's death, it is believed that he was eitehr apprenticed to, or adopted by a Cale family, probably John Cale.

He married Elizabeth Harmon on October 24, 1804. When Charney was married he used the name Charney Cale. After he married Elizabeth he enlisted and served in the Army as Charney Dundelow. Soon after he was discharged from the Army, he reenlisted. Charney and Elizabeth had a family of eleven children. Charney married Judith Mizelle on December 20, 1848, after the death of his first wife.

Charney Cale was a member of Ross Church.
Charney served as a deacon for many years. He died on July 24, 1860. According to the family stories, he was buried with his first wife, his Indian father, and his French mother in the old Indian Graveyard at Cucklemaker Creek.
