In Reply to: Michael McNiff 1826 Ireland m. 1853 (W)VA by Faye Bradley of 36

I am a Turney researcher and have found one I cannot place.

1860 Jefferson County, 8-WD Portland, Kentucky census
Series M653, Roll-376
Household # 94
Michael McNiff 36 Ireland
Elizabeth 36 IN
Elvira Linsley 13 KY
Thomas McNiff 6 KY
Susan McNiff 4 KY
Elizabeth McNiff 1 KY
Susan Turney 63 VA (born 1797)

I would think this Susan Turney was not born a Turney but the widow of one. Elizabeth McNiff is right age to be her daughter, and Elizabeth McNiff named a daughter Susan....

could this be your Michael McNiff? He is born the right time and in Ireland....but the wife is named Elizabeth instead of Jane.....

anyway, thought you might be interested. Kentucky would be a logical place for someone from (W)VA to have migrated......and Susan Turney born 1797 in VA - it well could have been in area which became West VA.
