I found my great, great grandparents, Matthew and Catherine Canders Loughney and their children: (a) Michael, born in Ireland about 1841; (b) Mary, born in Ireland about 1845; (c) Sara, born in Ireland about 1847; (d) Thomas (my ggf), born in Ireland about 1850; and (e) Catherine, born in Hawley, PA, 11-22-1853, in the 1860 Census of Palmyra Township, Wayne County, Pennsylvania. I have traced the descendants of Matthew and Catherine through to the present. However, in the 1860 Census the family name was spelled “Lockney”, and for the 1850-1870 time period, in the records of Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace R.C. Church in Hawley, PA, I have found “Laughny” or “Laughney”.
In the same 1860 Census and in the records of Queen of Peace Church I have found the following Lockneys or Laughneys living in or near Palmyra, Wayne County, PA:
A. Lockney, Martin, 32 born in Ireland, about 1828
Mary, 28, born in Ireland, about 1832
Mary R, ?, born in PA
Bridget, ?, born in PA
Catherine, born in PA, 1-21-1860
Bridget, born in PA, 2-5-1862
Michael, born in PA, 9-6-1864
Martin Laughney & Mary Tymon were married on 2-20-1857, at B.V.M., Queen of Peace.
B. Lockney, Michael, 28, born in Ireland, about 1832
Catherine, 26, born in Ireland, about 1824
James, born in PA
John, born in PA, 8-14-1860
Thomas, born in PA, 7-11-1862
Mary Ellen, born in PA, 7-11-1862
Michael, born in PA, 8-18-1864
C. Laughney, John, born (?)
Ellen, born (?)
Michael, born in PA, 9-20-1862
John, born in PA, 11-26-1864
John Laughney & Ellen Doherty were married on 8-18-1861, B.V.M., Queen of Peace.
D. Laughney, Martin married Rose Milia on 8-31-1861 at B.V.M. Queen of Peace. Witnesses were Thomas & Catherine Laughny.
I believe that all these Laughnys, Laughneys, Lockneys, and Loughneys are members of the same family. I would certainly like to hear from any descendants of Martin and Rose Tyman Lockney (Laughney), Michael and Catherine (?) Lockney (Laughney); John and Ellen Doherty Laughney, and Martin and Rose Milia Laughney to explore the possibilities of family relationships.
