        Ireland, brought to America, probably about 1730, and sold as an indentured
        servant.

 notes:  James migrated to Scott Co. KY around 1798 and most of his family
        remained in the area until around the Civil War when many of the children
        moved to either Indiana or Jackson Co. MO, settling in what is now Raytown,
        now a suburb of Kansas City.

        Changed name to DEHONEY.

 notes: From an online history of Milltown, Adair Co. By Frances Tutt Glasgow

        "The oldest standing house in the community at the present is the home
         known as the Mercer House. It sits on a hill and overlooks the village.
         Built by Rhodes Dohoney, a very wealthy landowner in the community, it
         later became the home of the Nathaniel Sikes Mercer family. Nathaniel's
         wife was Lucy Dohoney. The home is now owned by Nathaniel's granddaughter,
         Katherine Mercer."
