Who were the parents of Alexander Abbott?
He was the husband of Julia Swegle and son-in-law of Mathias Swegle.
We believe they were John W. and Christina (Babbitt) Abbott but need proof.
Who were the parents of John Carney?
This is what we have on him so far: b Abt. 1789 Albany, New York. d. Abt. 1865 Bureau, Bureau Co. IL.
He m. Anne Jane Craig sometime before the birth of their first few kids in 1826 or 1818.
This following is a statement by Mary Gleason, daughter of Eliza Carney Gleason and granddaughter of John Carney.
"His parents died when he was 'young'. His two sisters, Eliza and Lavina, raised him.
The name was spelled Kearney. The family was Catholic and the sisters wanted him to be a Priest.
He did not wish to do so. He went to Richmond, Carleton County, Ontario, Canada.
He changed the spelling of his name to Carney."
There was a John Kearney listed in the 1813-1816 Albany N.Y. directory who had a grocery and porterhouse.
After 1816 he disappears from the directory.
He is supposed to have had 2 sisters, Eliza and Lavina.
No documentation to prove this is the same John Kearney (Carney).
He was born in New York.
Was John Carney married twice?
According to our records, John Carney had a son John b 21 Dec 1818 in Canada.
However, John Srís wife was not born until Abt. 1805.
This makes her too young to be the mother of John Jr.
So Did John Sr have a first wife? Any information will help.
