Edwin Tappan Adney (1868-1950) devoted a great deal of time and effort during the early 1900s to researching the genealogy of the Adney family. His work was never published or made available to the general public, but it was the basis for additional research by John R. Adney of Miles, Iowa, and Mary Alice Claycombe Adney of Richmond, Indiana. Having access to Tappan Adney's original typescript, the revisions and additions made by John R. Adney, and Mary Alice Adney's publication "Adney Family Story" (1986), I am attempting to enter the basic genealogical data in Web-compatible files (using Reunion 5), and to add ETA's notes as appropriate. His total typescript is too long for use in these "Notes," but I intend to make it available in the future.

The first data published was about the descendants of William III (Thomas I, John II), the founder of the Adney family of southwestern Wisconsin and northeastern Iowa. This second edition concentrates on the family of Daniel (Thomas I), who was the founder of the Adneys of Indiana.

Edwin Tappan Adney ended his Preface, "About the year 1921 the present historian found himself, after the Great War, in which he served as Lieutenant of Canadian Engineers, in an unfavorable position for publishing the results of extensive research, and from about that date no further inquiries were made to bring up to date individual family records."
