Coney Family Genealogy Forum
Bill, please contact me regarding this line. I was in contact with Judith a few years ago. This David Cooney you found in Ireland cannot be the same David CONEY we have in our family. David Coney was born November 29, 1828 in Juanata, Pa., USA (part of current day Philly). Also - we have no links to anyone that has spelled our sir name with 2 o's. There were a couple gr gr aunts that signed their name with such a flourish that the C had a loop on the lower end giving the appearance of a o - so it "looked" like it could have been Cooney... but was not. I have several samples for their hand writing including where they printed their name.
I would like to see the evidence you have regarding this Cooney in Ireland. If you simply found a person with a similar name and birth, then that is one of the pitfalls of investigating a family tree. You need to gather documentation before you assume. you know the saying when you assume...
I have several official records as well as family bible references that show David Coney born in Juanata, Pa.
