Dee's plea for help:
John Wesley Horney, Sr was my fourth great grandfather. John was born about September 20, 1822 in Talbot or Queen Anne's County, Maryland and died July 26, 1901 in the 80th year of his age at Fords Store, Queen Anne's County, Maryland. John W. Horney married Mary Elizabeth Browne on January 14, 1846 by Reverend Sutton in Queen Anne's County, Maryland. Mary was born about February 1829 and was still living April 23, 1910 at age 81. I have been searching for about 5 years and have not been able to locate her date and place of death or obituary. I have not been able to locate John or Mary Horney's tombstones. John Wesley Horney Sr was the son of Thomas Horney and his first wife, Elizabeth Betsy Sewell. They were my fifth great grandparents who were married November 15, 1814 by Reverend Valliant in Talbot County Maryland.
Thomas Horney was born about 1793 and died between March 17 - April 1, 1859 at his Prospect Bay Farm in Queen Anne's County, Maryland. I have not yet located their tombstones.

William G. Horney was the son of Thomas Horney and his second wife, Henrietta Mary Pinkind. He was the half brother of John Wesley Horney, Sr.
William G. Horney was born July 5, 1835 at the prospect bay farm and died August 5. 1913. He married Ann Wilhelmina Todd. The photos I have taken of the tombstones of William G. Horney and his family The are those at the top of this page.

I have not yet located the gravestones of John Wesley Horney, Sr, his wife, Mary Elizabeth Browne Horney, or his father, Thomas Horney. They should be located in what was the Prospect Bay Farm which was located at or near what is now Windward Cove on Greenwood Creek near Eastern Bay, Queen Anne's County, Maryland. If anywone found these tombstones I would be most graciously greatful if you would contact me at:
