Thanks for your response to me. No, I have not seen your book, Henning and
Rummel, "The Toney Family". How can I get a copy? Please let me know the
price and where to order it, for I am very interested. My line is from
William Toney*, to Carey Toney**, to Jesse Toney, to Phebe (Toney) Witham,
to Adeline Victoria (Witham) Waggoner, to Maude Ethel (Waggoner) Owens, to
me - Opal Ethel (Owens) Seals.
*Reference from: William Toney's will, filed 12-30-1804 in Franklin Co.,
Virginia, Book 1, page 254. Quote from will "Carey Toney, my son...." and
**Vol. 8 and Vol. 9, Revolutionary Soldiers of Virginia Supplement, H. J.
Eckenrode, pg. 304, Pension Records S. of W. 1835, Pen. 3, Ohio, 156, D.A.R.
Pension Records, Vol. 134. I really hope all of this is true and accurate.
Please keep in touch...Sincerely, Opal Seals
