This is a collection of my Downey ancestory. There are many different Downy's in America, but mine I feel is unique. This starts with Darby Downey, who came from Ireland, with the spelling of "Downing" which was changed to Downey. He and his family lived in the Shenandoah Valley till my line of this family came to Ohio in the 1840's and part even traveled further west to Indiana.
Thru the years they married and had many children. Included in this report are marriages and relationships to the following families: Kibbe, Kibby, Irons, Runyan, Snook, Worley to name a few. Mostly from the midwest.
I will be adding more information astime goes on, but this is a start, I have been doing research for 15 years on this family, and would like to hear from others who are researching the same families.
