Hi Steph....I have traced my family back to Alsac Lorraine, Comas, France. These are some of the names: Jean F Ferney b 1716; Antonine Ferney B 1749, d 1807; Jean Pierre Ferney b 1796 at LeVal, Belfort, France, d 1859 St. Cosme, H. France; Pierre Francois Ferney B 1829 at Alsac d 1896 at Stapleton, Chickasaw, Iowa. I don't have the children for Jean F or Antonine, but do have the others.I have never come across you name of Steph Ferney, however it's possible we could be connected somewhere back there. I have found numerous Ferney's in Scottland. Let me know if I can be of any help. Always enjoy hearing from other Ferney's.
