I am researching the Trenary families of VA and OH, IL.
Sarah Trenary b 1796 the dau of Samuel Fenton Trenary and his first wife (whose name is still unproven) married in Winchester, Frederick Co, VA to Charles Haynie who w b 18 Oct 1794 Culpepper,VA d 7 Jan 1880 Clinton Co, OH. I have looked at the Haynie families posted on Ancestry.com and see that there is a son of Sarah and Charles named William Newton Haynie b 1821 Clinton Co, OH.
This is interesting because Newton is a family name in the Trenary family.Some say that Newton was the maiden name of the mother of Mary Archer, the second wife of Samuel F. Trenary.They did not marry until 1799, 3 years after Sarah T Haynie was born!
I need to find a descendant of the Haynie family of Clinton Co, OH who knows what happened to any early family records such as the diary of Thomas B. Haynie, son of Sarah and Charles?I have some of the pages that were in the archives of the Handley Library in Winchester.Other pages were published on pages 243-246 of the Stuart Brown book, ANNALS OF CLARKE CO, VA.Vol 1, pub. by Brown in 1983.
To those of you searching for the ancestors of Charles, you will find on page 243, Sunday May 28, 1871. Thomas said, " Left Uncle G. S. Haynie's at 7 oclock in company with Sam Trenary and Ed Trenary (his uncles) stayed 3 1/2 hours and then left with them for uncle William Trenary near White Post. Got there 11 o'clock and got good dinner, fried chicken, ham, new potatoes, corn and cake.Took a walk in the afternoon with uncle to look at wheat crop and stock.The old place looks very STONY."
Note from HAustin,2009. Yum, Yum! This location where the Haynies, and Trenarys lived was on the East side of Frederick County which later became Clarke County.Some of the uncles lived at the juncture of Warren County, close to Front Royal.White Post (the old surveyors stake put up by George Washington as a surveyor's stake for Lord Fairfax property) is still there. Close to what was once called Trenary's Corner ( for the William Trenary son of Samuel Fenton Trenary and Mary Archer.It is now a gas station and a marker for the deceased William Trenary family.The place is now called Waterloo or Lost Corner on what was once U.S. Route 50.The old road from Trenary's corner to Front Royal is still there.I do not know if any Haynies live there, but some Trenary do.
Please write directly or reply to this message if you have any of the old letters, diaries, bibles or other info dated from before 1850.
The name of the first wife of Samuel Fenton Trenary is what I am looking for.I have never found any Feldman family or Ellen Feldman and I think that name is wrong.It was sent to my family in 1927 by Lillian Trenary, but may be just a guess for a name of Sam's first wife.
