I was first searching for my gggrandfather, Moses Janney, and have been able through the Franklin Co. Courthouse to get info on him. My name is Virginia (Ginny) Koseff from California. My grandfather was Robert Janney, who enlisted at Jacksonville in 1861 for the Civil War. He was in the 54th VA Infantry. I have a copy of a deed of land owned by Robert's father, Burwell Janney, with 30 acres in Floyd Co. and 37 in Franklin Co. But, according to the Clerk in Floyd, no taxes were ever paid on the 30 acres in Floyd. I have been told that my ancestors are buried on this land. I just can't find out anything on Isaac and Hannah. Where they came from or Hannah's maiden name. I know that Isaac was in Franklin Co. in 1786 Tax List. But, have been told the Janney's were a Border Family (Franklin and Floyd). The Janney's that I have contacted in Floyd have told me they don't know anything about their ancestors. One didn't want to know anything about them. Two said they would check, but I never heard from them again. One elderly lady in the Restaurant in Floyd told me the Janney's had a "falling out" over land and cattle many years ago, so won't talk. Anything that you could post from what I have told you would be greatly appreciated.
