The Janneys of Franklin and Floyd Counties, VA

In the late 1990s and early 2000s there were a number of messages on this forum concerning the Janneys of Franklin and Floyd Counties in Virginia. I have studied those messages rather carefully in an effort to determine whether these families originate from the family of William Janney and Elizabeth Moon of Bucks County, PA and later of Loudoun County, VA. There is not enough information in the messages to be convincing on this matter.

The critical issue is the parentage of Isaac Janney, who was married to Hannah. Some were quite adamant that Isaac was the son of William and Elizabeth, basing this, apparently, on information in the will of Isaac Janney. I assume, therefor, that such a will exists, and I would certainly like to obtain access to it.

I have been working over the last few months on the family of William and Elizabeth Janney, and have a good record, partially validated, of the daughters of William and Elizabeth, and two of the older sons. If I could become convinced that the Isaac of Franklin and/or Floyd counties was indeed their son, I would be willing to expend a considerable effort in tracking down the descendants of Isaac and Hannah. Conversely, if it can be shown conclusively that Isaac is not the son of William and Elizabeth, I would not do so.

Unfortunately, I cannot seem to contact previous contributors to this forum. E-mail addresses appear to have been changed, or people are no longer interested. If you can help me with the specific issue of the parentage of Isaac Janney, please respond to this note.
