Good Evening -
I have not put out a query to this website for several years and thought I would give it a try. I have run upon a "brick wall" that hopefull some can help with.
I am researching the lineage of Larkin Looney of Georgia/South Carolina. Hopefully someone can lend some clues or perhaps knows the ancestry of Larkin as to whether he descended from our Robert Looney from the Isle of Man.
I find this family in the 1850 Franklin Georgia Census as follows:
Larkin Looney 38 Carpenter Georgia
Frances 35 South Carolina
David 5 Georgia
Morgan 6/12 Georgia
Jefferson P. Lawson 8 Georgia
In the 1860 Franklin Co., Georgia Census as follows:
Larkin Looney 47 Mechanic South Carolina
Frances 35 Domestic Georgia
Jefferson 18 Farmer South Carolina
David 13 Georgia
Joseph 10 Georgia
Sarah 8 Georgia
Mary J. 7 Georgia
In the 1870 Franklin Georgia Census as follows:
Frances Looney 49 Keeping House Georgia
Joseph 18 Farm Laborer Georgia
Sarah E. 17 At Home Georgia
Mary J. 15 At Home Georgia
I could not find the Larkin/Frances family in the 1840 Census or before, or the 1880 Census and after. Their children are found in subsequent census. Although the ages do not match well from census to census, I am confident this is the same family. My dilema is that I cannot trace their ancestry prior to 1840, and eventually (hopefully) to our Robert Looney.
Any help/hints will be appreciated!
