Surnames: Maney, Smith, McGinnis, Davis, Newman, Galbraith, Lashua
My name is Dean Maney, I'm 45 years old and have lived in the Milwaukee WI area all my life.

My father, Donald R. Maney, died in 1971, he never talked about his family. I found the start of an old Family Tree and started to do some research two months ago.

I have found a lot of information in the Waupaca WI area. My great great Grandfather was John Maney born 1813. His wife's name was Rose (nee McGinnis ?) He moved to Waupaca County, WI from Lumberland Township, Sullivan County, NY in 1854 / Roberts obit.

He had four children, according to the 1860 WI census. They and their son John moved to Gordon NE (1886). According to her obituary (1897) in
the Waupaca County Post, they are both buried there.

John Jr. last heard from near Billings, Montana in 1918 / Roberts obit .

Marguret Ann married Silas Davis, lived in the Waupaca, WI. area and two sons Dwight and Samuel and a daughter Lucy / Waupaca County Post .

Elmira, we believe they called her Mary, and that she married James Newman ( Newman's Corner ) and lived in the Waupaca WI area / Rose Maney obit .

Robert Everett Maney, was my great Grandfather ( wife Martha nee Galbraith). They had 5 children, Ida, Nettie, Fredrick, Albert, and Frank.

Ida married George Lashua and lived in Evart MI (1918) and Plymouth MI (1948). They had a son according to Robert's 1918 obituary......I just received a letter from Mrs. Edward J. Perpente, of Sarasota FL, a Lashua
descendant. Ida had 10 children, 28 grand children, and there are 48 great grand children.

Nettie died (1891) 4 years after getting sick from saving a child that had fallen through the ice / Waupaca County Post obit .

Fredrick (wife Anna nee Larson) had two sons, Everett and DeRonda. We also believe that Fredrick moved to Van Nuys, CA, in the 30's and worked as security at a motion picture studio ( Waupaca county Post / Donald Maney's
first wife Maureen nee Doerfler). Through research I just received DeRonda's death certificate from L.A.County CA. He died in Oct. 1970.

Albert was last known to have lived in Greenwood WI. We believe that Albert, according to the 1905 census, had two sons, David and Lloyd, ages 4 and 2. We found mortgage papers, from 1920, at the Clark County Courthouse
in Neilsville, WI that say Albert's wife's name was Jesse.

Frank was my Grandfather. He died in 1948. He and his wife Daisy(nee Smith) ran the Riverview Hotel on the North end of Main Street from 1919 to 1930. They had three children. My father was the only one to live to adulthood.

I sure would appreciate any help or information you could possibly offer in this quest.

Hello from North central Illinois. My name is Ralph W. Wilson and my great grandmother Susan R. Maney, was married to my ggrandfather, David D. Wilson. Both of them are buried in the Lind Center Cemtery southeast of Waupaca Wisconsin. They were married somewhere in the Sulvian, Orange county of New York. Susan was born in 3 Sept 1827 and died 3 Jan 1898. Her father was Robert Maney and her mother was Lidia Cox.
You might try web site "/ " for more information in the Maney family.
My ggrandfather and Susan came to Waupaca County in the mid 1850s. My grandfather was born to them in 1852 in Orange County. I think but not sure they came west with her brother. If I can be of any further help please contact.

Susan R Maney was my Great Grandmother. She married David D. Wilson in 1852 or 1851. She had one child by her first husband, who had died.
They come to Wisconsin, I believe with Susan's brother John and his family. My grandfather was born in New York in 1852. They settled in Lind Township and had the rest of their family.
My wife and I live in Belvidere Il. and do not have the genealogy information on the laptop here, We stay in Northern Wisconsin in the summer, but we are schuled to return to Belvidere in about the third week of Sept,
At that time I will forward to you a family Group sheet when we get home.Susan died in Waupaca county in 1898 and is buried in the Lind Center cemetary on the Wilson plot.
My father told me his father came to Wis with the rest of the family in 1854. My father stated they came via Hudson river to the Erie canel, then by scooner to Green Bay Wis.From there they connected to river system and went to Waupaca couty on the Wolf River. There was no trains there yet so they had to hike the rest of way, about 7 miles. John Maney went further maybe 25 miles to their homestead.
