Barbara Looney I ran across this will on the internet a few years back. I am one of those Looneys in NE Missouri from the Peter line that emigrated down the Ohio TN river valley. There is an ancient old Looney cemetary my mother and I are caring for here in Shelby County Missouri with Looney headstones dating to late 1700's early 1800's. It has fallen into disrepair, and my interest has spawned after my fathers death, Edward W. Looney in '99. Also, I am trying to put together the pieces to join DAR. Any help?
