In Warren County there is a George W. HALEY (actually 2 of them) . It appears that one George W. HALEY is the father of the second. I can find no records of George W. HALEY's marriages, I believe 2 of them one, around 1858 and another around 1880. 1st. marriage produced 3 children Alec, George W.,& Mary HALEY. The second marriage produced 1 Fannie HALEY (later to became COMBS). It is the first marriage I am trying to trace out, whom he married, when, and did the first wife die, get divorced, etc, and that the Alec, George W. & Mary are his children??? Any help appreciated.

Warren County 1812 Tax List shows John LOONEY and sons, Robert, John Jr and Stephen. In early 1800's Captain John LOONEY (wife, Elizabeth Renfroe) owned a plantation on Barren Fork near McMinnville. Michael DERRYBERRY was a neighbor. Capt. John LOONEY died c. 1820, John Jr sold the plantation and moved to Maury Co. The will of John Sr (never found) was contested by John DERRYBERRY, John GRAHAM and Thomas HOPKINS. Were Capt John LOONEY and wife Elizabeth buried in the old Liberty Cumberland Presbyterian Cemetery with the Smartts and Thomas HOPKINS? Would appreciate any information about the LOONEYS and this cemetery. Did Capt. LOONEY'S daughters marry into the DERRYBERRY and GRAHAM families? Would appreciate any connections among these families from 1807 to 1825.
