I have just found another 'new' cousins, who gave me more information.He states that my first EDNEY, John, supposedly owned a ship, and brought prisoners over from Ireland.He had two sons, who were part-time preachers.Their names were Samuel and Ishmial/Ishmal, (I am guessing at this spelling).One of the brother's was going to preach for the other brother to marry a STEPPE?Something happened and the brother's had a misunderstanding of some sorts, and the families split.I do not know which 'side of the fence' mine fell on, and don't care!Anyway, a Samuel EDNEY, born 1734, married Mary KELLY?They had Robert EDNEY, born Feb. 15, 1770, locations, I don't know?Then Robert married and I maybe have a generation missing, because I have down that his son was Millard EDNEY, born Jan. 1857, in Fayette Co., AL.Millard was my great great grandfather.He married Martha Virginia 'Jennie' LAVENDER.Millard (railroad man) and Jennie had:
(probably not in order)
Carniff Ruff EDNEY, (railroad man)
Mary Keifer EDNEY,
Carey Austin EDNEY, (miner)
Wilma EDNEY, and
Mary Keifer EDNEY was my great grandmother.She was born 1881 in Columbus, MS.Mary Keifer EDNEY married Hezakiah Clark GORE.Millard and Jennie's family reloacted around the Birmingham Jefferson Co., AL. area.
Can anyone help me with any of my EDNEY's.I know that Martha Virginia 'Jennie' EDNEY and Claude EDNEY are buried in Elmwood Cem. in Birmingham, Jefferson Co., AL.But I can not find Millard.He may have been sent back to Fayette Co., AL, where he possibly was born?Seeking any info and help on any of these names.Thank you in advance.
