Barry:

Saw a very old post on Genealogy . com about wanting info on the Denney family in Dallas County, Iowa. Don't know if you are still interested but I have quite a bit of info on them. James is in my database because he married Sarah Ann Rittgers and the Findleys and the Rittgers are double cousins..

DENNEY, J.-Farmer, section 9, P. O. Des Moines. Was born in New Castle county, Delaware, January 16, 1837. When fifteen years of age he moved with his parents to this county. He was raised a farmer and still follows the same, and now owns a fine farm of two hundred acres. He was married in this county, September 10,1859, to Miss Sarah Rittgers. They have a family of three children: John T., Ida J. and Albert.

Looks like my "John T." is the same as your "John". I knew his son Raymond quite well as his farm was less than 2 miles from where I grew up. I remember seeing Myrtle at family picnics and gatherings. Sarah died in 1925.

Let me know if you want any further information.
