1 Daniel Adney
Birth 12 Jan 1777, Fincastle, Botetourte Co. Virginia
Death 1 May 1862, Abingdon, Union Co. Indiana
Burial Woods Chapel Cemetery
Father Thomas Adney
Mother Elizabeth Dunn

per Mary Alice Claycombe Adney, "Adney Family Story," (1986) "He is buried in Woods Chapel Cemetery (Methodist) which is two miles south and east of Philomath or 1 mile east and 1 mile north of Paddock's Ford in Union County, IN. Frank and Mary Alice Adney have seen the stone. It is large and his daughter Catherine is buried next to him. His stone reads d. May 2, 1862 aged 85 yrs., 3 mo., 2 dys. Also buried in this cemetery are M. M. Dunn wife of Elijah Johnson d. 6-1-1852 age 24 and Thos. Dunn d. 1-29-1844 age 40. Could these be any relation to Elizabeth Dunn Adney--mother of Daniel?"

Mary Alice C. Adney has transcribed Daniel's will and the inventory of his estate in her book.

1.1 Sarah Adney
Birth 5 Sep 1798, Franklin County, VA
Death 14 Aug 1845

Tappan Adney gives Sarah's date of birth as September 5, 1796. However, in her book "Adney Family Story" (1986 - no longer in print), Mary Alice Claycombe Adney says: "According to family tradition Daniel moved with his family to Adney Gap, VA ca. 1798. Marriage records of Franklin County, VA, seen by Mary Alice and Frank Adney in 1976 show that Daniel and Anna Coger were married by Jacob Miller Feb. 13, 1798." Therefore, I am showing Sarah's date of birth as September 5, 1798 to fit (barely) their date of marriage.

ETA says: "This Sally probably the Sally Adney of the Botetourte Co., VA courthouse records, who mar. May 8, 1818 Joseph Grist, ceremony by Rev. John Helens; Anna (Adney) Hays appearing on the marriage-bond as surety for said Grist. As her father left Virginia 'about a year after the Rineharts, namely 'about 1818', Grist either died soon after his marriage or went to Ohio and died there, the fact of a first marriage not being in the Adney-Rinehard record."
