There were several Looneys, and more than one named Peter. I think this is the one who had land next to my Henry Turney (which today is Springhaven near Hendersonville Tn)

1786 Peter Looney (son of Peter Looney who had been captured by Indians, but lived to tell about it. Died soon after son born. In company of militia with Benjamin Looney, John Looney, and Captain David Looney 1776-1777 Fincastle Co VA) - owned land adjacent to Henry Turney in the state of North Carolina. (today about 20 miles from Nashville TN). From the book SMITH COUNTY TENNESSEE HISTORY, Henry Turney and Peter Loney were among the settlers who were entitled to a right of preemption to land under the provisions of the act of 1782 and 1783. Others on this list were James and Mark Robertson, John Brown, Stephen Ray, and William Overall.

- notice Brown name

Now the oldest daughter of Henry Turney married a John Looney Jr around 1795 and I have been told he was the son of Capt. John Looney Sr and an Elizabeth Renfro. I don't know what the connection to Peter Looney might be.

I do know I have an old map - would be probably Montgomery County VA today - was I think Augusta Co VA back then....and there are a lot of Looneys. There is also a Looney ferry people moving out of Shenandoah Valley to Eastern TN would have used.
