My Great-Great-Grandfather was Anthony Looney, born 1825, died 1902. (I just got those dates from my Mother.)
I found an 1880 Census listing Anthony Looney as head of household and listing wife as Jane.I wonder if Margaret could be Margaret Jane?
My Great-Grandfather was Anthony's son, Lewis (1860-1949). Lewis married Malinda Baker.Their son, Joe (Joseph) Looney is my Grandfather, (1889-1977) Camden Co., MO.In Jan. 1910 he married my Grandmother, Alpha Julia Jackson (1891-1973).They had 10 children; my Mom is the youngest.
McGuire Note:In a recent conversation, while picking my Mom's brain, she mentioned an Aunt (or Great Aunt) Rachel Elizabeth Looney who married William Jasper McGuire and thinks they had a daughter named Velma who married Floyd Mizer.Mom said that years ago she corresponded with Rachel's granddaughter some, but probably no longer has letters or anything.Does any of that match up with your information?Would love to hear from you!
Also, would love to hear from anyone with more information on the Looney's ... Joe & Alpha - Lewis & Malinda - Anthony & Jane? - Benjamin & (?)
