In Reply to: A town called DOWNEY OR DONNEY in Leon Co.? by Carol Young of 488

hey Carol,
The town you are looking for is actually called Donie (pronounced with a long o). You were probably having trouble locating it because it is in Freestone County, not Leon. The county lines in that area are a little weird. If I'm not mistaken, that area is where Leon, Freestone, and Limestone county lines all meet. Donie is still standing, although if you blink you've missed it, as it is very, very tiny. There is a railroad that runs through there, however, I don't know which line. If you are looking for older genealogy information for Donie, I would suggest going to the USgenweb and searching all three counties. I hope that helps!
