Brian .. Thanks for your reply to the Garney's. - Phineas Kimball Garney, Jr. of Phineas of Lewis of Joseph is my wife's g grandfather. Phineas, Jr. married Lomira Marsh who had a daughter, Alice May and she married Walter Myers, who is my wife's grandmother. Alice lived with us for a short while back in the 60's I sure would like to hear from you and all the information you can handle. Thanks. Jim Given

Believe there was only one Phineas Kimball Garney, no Sr. and Jr. His parents were Lewis Garney and first wife, Elvira Matilda Dow.

Phineas was born July 1849 in Cabot or St. Johnsbury, Caledonia Co., VT.

1850 - Cabot, Caledonia Co. (became Washington Co. in 1855), VT: Phineas Garney, 6/12, w/parents & siblings.

1860 - Cabot, Washington Co., VT: Phineas Garney, 10, w/parents & siblings.

1870 - East Cabot P.O., Cabot, Washington Co., VT: Porter [sic] K. Garney, 20, boarding w/Clark family, works in sawmill.

If Phineas did marry Sara C. Utley, the marriage took place after 1870 and ended before 1880. (Have searched, but can’t find any information about Sara; don’t know where her name came from.)

1880 - Cabot, Washington Co., VT: Phineas Garney, 31, single, servant in home of Orson & Susan Kimball.

March 9, 1881 - Phineas, age 32, married Mary Lomira Marsh.

1900 - Cabot, Washington Co., VT: Phineas Garney, 50; Mary L. Garney, 48; daughter Alice M. Garney, 16; son Clare W. Garney, 7. Mary was listed as mother of 3 children/2 living. So a third child was born and died before 1900, suppose it could have been a son named Phineas Kimball Garney.

1910 - can’t find family.

1920 - Cabot, Washington Co., VT: Phineas K. Garney, 70; Mary L. Garney, 68.

I am searching for the ancestor Joseph married to Margaret mentioned in Lewis Garney's second marriage record to Betsy Cameron Dow. The latest information gives the possible surname (altered to Garney) of Gagne. Have you found this ancestor or know any reference to him by Alice Garney?
Thanks for your interest. C.G.Turney

I am not related to the Garneys. I have a dear friend whose maiden name is Garney, and I did some research for her because she doesn't have a computer.

Believe Phineas Kimball Garney's grandparents were Joseph Garney, born Saint-Louis-du-HA!Ha! or Quebec, Canada, couldn't find date of death, and Margaret Blanchard, born 1800 in Canada.

Phineas' parents were Lewis Garney, born 1820 in Canada, died November 23, 1898 in Bridgewater, Windsor County, VT, and Elvia Matilda Dow, born 1827 in VT, died January 1, 1874 in Cabot, Washington County, VT. Lewis and Elvira married April 29, 1846 in Cabot, Washington County, VT.

Everything I found about the Garney family was on genealogical websites and various postings on the Internet.

Thank you. I am also a Garney descendent and the only missing info is the proper French name for Garney and Lewis Garney's birth site in Quebec. I am told there are no French Garneys in historical records. If I do find the name, I will post it so that others can include it in their search.
