JEFFERSON COUNTY NEW YORK

PIONEER DENEY FAMILY




1.  JOHN DENEY was born 25 August 1815/1816 at  Ellisburg, Jefferson County NY. The surname originally may have been "DANA".
In the censuses I've found it looks like John was only a farmer and worked for a while as a sailor in 1855.  I've found 
his family living in Kane County Illinois in 1850 for while and it looked as though they moved back to New York.  They
were found on the 1840, or 45 census of Ellisburgh and then in 1850 -they were gone, then suddenly they returned and
are found in the 1855 and 1860 Census.  John's name was also found to be spelt "DANY" in the 1860 census I believe.  
We still haven't found his parents or his birth ceritficate or christening. In 1855 the census lists him as age 39, and 39 
yrs resident of the county.  In his later years, around 1880, he moved to  Morristown, Minnesota, where he died 12 
December 1904 and was buried in Riverside Cemetery there.

He married c 1832 in Ellisburgh

LUCETTA McNITT who was born 15 Sept 1819 Ellisburg, Jefferson County,  daughter of JAMES and
 SARAH (LINDSEY) McNITT.  She died 12 December 1904 Morristown, MN and was buried in Riverside Cemetery there.
