Ancestors of Russell Milo Farney (9/1912-?)

I am looking for the ancestors of Russell Milo Farney, my Great-Grandfather (married to Stella Elizabeth (Elness) Farney. There is a slight possibility that he is a descendant of John Farney from Ireland, b. 1750. I believe that he married Mary Otteson (possibly Mary Otterson or Ottison) in 1897.

I am new to finding my genealogy and any tips or leads that anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

My Grandma seems to think that Russell's father's name was either Peter or David, from what I can find on the internet, I believe Russell's father's name was David Leroy Farney, a descendant of John Farney. I am also looking for the date of Russell's death. My Grandmother doesn't remember, just remembers that he came home for lunch and a nap and "that was all she wrote." Does anyone have any information that can substantiate my leads?
