I just wanted to post my Athey line just in case it might help someone who may be stuck.
It all starts with Walter Athey b.1585 Galway,Ireland His son, Francis Athey b. 1615 Galway, Ireland His Son, George Athey b. 1642 Galway, Ireland His Son, Thomas Athey b. 1695 ,Prince George,Maryland His son, Walter William Athey b. 1621 ,Prince George,Maryland His son, Thomas M. Athey b.1781 ,Fairfax,Virginia His son, James Athey b.1810 ,Hardy,Virginia His Son Michael Athey b. 1839 ,Tippacanoe,Indiana His daughter Margaret Ann Athey b.17 Nov 1868 ,Warren, Iowa
Margaret Ann married Thomas Benton Van Horn, who is my Great-great-Grandfather. I am connected to the Iowa Athey's in about 4 different ways, as lots of brothers married sisters and what-not. I have lots of info on the Greene Co. Iowa Athey's if anyone is searching one of these lines.
