The Laney Clan in Virginia

The Laney Clan in Virginia

My name is Brenda Delores Laney Closs, the daughter of Estil and Myrtle (Yates) Laney of Wise County, Virginia. My grandfather was Joseph Bascom Laney and my grandmother was Orlena Greene Laney. My grandfather's family settled in Wise County after leaving Scott County, Virginia. Due to the fact that my grandfather and most of his relatives were buried in "old family cemeteries" where rocks were used as markers, and that he died long before I was born (1918), there is relatively little family history for us to EVEN begin a "family tree". If anyone is familiar with this family, or related, I would appreciate hearing from you. Many thanks.

Hi Brenda,
I know what you mean about info on the
Laneys. My grandmother was Ivy Laney father
Robert Laney his father was Martin (Bryce)
Laney and his Joseph Laney also from Wise
Virginia. That's as far as I can find out.
Do you have any info. I have up to Joseph
married Rhoda Baker. Does this sounds like it
could be the same bunch?

Surnames: Laney
I am the granddaughter of Joseph Bascom Laney and Orlena Greene Laney of Wise, Virginia. My grandparents lived all their lives on Coeburn Mountain...what is now known as Pole Bridge Road. Grandfather and grandmother had the following children: Nola Laney Davis (married Boyce Davis..children Tony, Penny, Joyce, Kenneth), Ava Laney Pauley (married Gus Pauley...children, Leroy, Pauline and Bobby {adopted}) , Hughie Estil Laney (my father, married Myrtle Yates...children Brenda and Tammy), Everett Laney (died as a child), Gilbert Laney (died at approx. 16 in a mining crusher accident), Earl Laney (married Lula Reed..children Dennis, James {Bobby}, Erma, Billie, Ruth), Delpha Laney Sulfridge ( married William Sulfridge...daughter, Lela Mae) and Chester Laney( married Minnie Skeens...daughter, Dorkis). I'd be glad to share what little info I have with you, if you wish.

Because my grandfather died when my own father was three, there is relatively little info I have past the third generation. I do know he had a brother named Conklin Laney, and a sister Bertha Laney Addington, and I do know that we are related to the Walker Laney family of Coeburn, but am also looking for info to fill in the gaps. Any info you would be willing to share would be appreciated.

Surnames: Laney
I think we're relatives. Mary Laney born 1885 in Va. was sister to my great,great-grandma Sarah E. Laney born 1874. They are daughters of Cloe Laney, born 1847. Sarah Laney was mother to Lonnie James Laney of Scott Co., Va. His father was James McNew. He took his mother's name as his parents weren't married. Lonnie was my great grandpa. He married Bessie Mae Belcher and had a son Cecil Ray Laney, born 1924 of Norton, Va. He married Meredith Pauline Laney and they had my father, Donald Ray Laney, born 1950. I have more information on Sarah's part of the family. Hope that this may help a little. Sorry, that I don't have more info on Mary Laney.

Hello!! My name is Emily Baker, from Wise Co. VA. I just got through reading your msg that was posted about Sarah E. Laney, Mary Laney, and Lonnie. I'm happy I finally found something on the Laney's. My great grandfather, is Joseph Munroe Laney, his wife was Mary Jane Owens Laney. I have Joseph having two sisters, Mary and Sarrah E. Laney (Sarrah is buried in Fort Blackmore, Scott Co. where), I have Joseph having one brother named John. I am pretty sure he has more siblilings. I just can't find them. AND, most importantly, I cannot find anything about their parents, anywhere! I have looked for six months. If anyone has any information, u can email me. Thanks, Emily Baker
