In Reply to: Robert Calvin Marney & Emma Lou Goddard by Gene R. Laningham of 217

In Robert's generation a remarkable bond between the Marney and Goddard families of Roane Co. TN was established. His youngest brother, my grandfather, John Henry led the way, marrying Lydia Goddard in 1883. Samuel then married Tressie Goddard in 1885; and finally Robert closed out this "triple-double" by marrying Emma Goddard in 1887. Throughout my youth 1922-40 in Harriman, TN (founded 1891)members of the Marney and Goddard families--in all levels of the generations--enjoyed the closest harmony, stemming from these three brothers marrying three sisters. While I have no help for your search as a descendant, I can provide some six generations of patrilineal descent for Robert Calvin himself. If you do not have this information already, please e-mail a reply. How much I have always enjoyed this particular flight of family fancy!
