Several of us are trying to determine if there is a connection between our Obney families. Would appreciate any information you have on Obney's. We're willing to share our work.

I am 37 years old, my dad is Richard Lee Obney, whom I haven't seen in many years. From what I can find out, the Obney's are a strange lot, I sure hope your family is alot closer and more loving than any of mine. Obney side of course. (Thank God for my maternal side.) God Bless!!

I don't think there are very many Obney's around. My Grandfather told me that the name was changed when the family came here from Ireland. It had originally been O'B something......but i can't remember any more.I think it was O'Beny
