Peter TRUNEY father of Malete JOYNER

We are trying to trace the name "Truney," Turney, or Furney in St. Tammany in the early 1800's.

A deed dated 1835 says that Peter Truney, deceased, received 640 acres of land from the US government, and that he resided in St. Tammany Parish. If anything in this deed rings a bell with anyone, please let me know. Thanks very much.

St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana Conveyances
D-1 and E-1
LDS microfilm # 1503064

No. 2646
Malete? Joyner to William Keay
18 Mary 1835

The body of the deed refers to the grantor as "Meatete" Truney, wife of Nathan Joyner. (We have seen her name as Meliti, Melita, etc.) She is selling to William Keay of the same state and parish a certain section of 640 acres of land on the creek Bedico? bounded by lands of William Cooper and John Baddeaux?, being the same land that the vendor acquired by inheritance from her father, Peter Truney, late of said parish, deceased, land which Peter Truney had acquired by "donation of the government of the United States, as appears by abstract of certificate no. 508 dated land office St. Helena? October 25 (1826? 1836?) signed by Samuel Rannels register and William Kenchew receiver." The sale price is $400.00. The property is free of any lien or mortgage.

This deed is recorded at the town of Covington. Mr. and Mrs. Joyner are not able to write, so they make their mark.
