I would like to share information on the Hooey/Howey family of Oxford, Sussex, New Jersey.
I am descended from Joseph, son of Abraham Hooey of Oxford.
Joseph married Lydia McConnell and they left New Jersey after the Rev. War. Joseph was the administrator of Abraham Hooey's will in 1778 and signed his name HOWEY. Joseph and Lydia and children went first to Shenandoah County, VA and then to Hardin County, KY. They lived out their lives in Hardin County and I am descended from their grandson, John Spencer Howey who came to Kansas after the Civil War.
Abraham Hooey of Oxford was the nephew of Robert Houey/Hooey/Howey of Hardwick, Sussex County. They came to NJ from Ireland at the same time.
Would love to hear from anyone descended from Abraham or Robert.
Joseph's siblings were: Abraham Hooey/Howey, Jesse Hooey/ Elizabeth (married James McConnell) and Mary (married Phillip Butz/Butts).
