In Reply to: John FARNEY b. 1750 Ireland & descendants by stephen pattee of 59

I recently received an old Farney Family Tree that was compiled and published by Charles E. Farney in 1941. Within its pages are birth, marriage and death dates, though not complete for every family member. The tree begins with John Farney, b. abt. 1750, and Mary Radcliffe. The Tree is incomplete after 1941. According to the tree, John and Mary Farney had three children: William (who married and had a family, but not much information was obtained in regards to his life other than he had a son named Ira); Rebecca Farney, who married John Stephenson (children and grandchildren where not listed); and David Radcliffe Farney, who married Malinda Duncan (they had eight children, including Minerva Farney who married Robert (Bob) Alexander).

John Farney married again after the death of his first wife, Mary. The only information I have about the second wife is that she was German.

One a side note, according to the Tree, John Farney did indeed live to be 109 years old, dieing on his birthday at his daughter Rebecca's home.

There is information missing from this Tree. It is my goal to not only share the information that I have been fortunate enough to have, but to also fill in some of the blanks.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like any of the information, or if you have anything to share.
