536. Andreas KILLIAN

Arrived at Philadelphia, PA with 3 children on the English ship 'Adventure' 4 Oct 1732. Signed oath of allegiance to colonial government 23 Sep 1732. Difference must be due to 11 day difference in Julian vs Gregorian calendars? England and colonies were on Julian, Germany Gregorian in 1732.
Passenger list says he was 30 which gives birth year 1701 or 1702.
Settled on the south side of the Catawba river in NC in 1749.

656. Robert LOONEY

Robert Looney was on the Muster Roll of Augusta County in 1742. On July 30, 1742 received a grant of 213 acres beginning at the South side of Luney's Mill Creek and extending to Beaver Damn Swamp. Robert Looney was a surety on Eleanor Draper's bond of May 17, 1749, for her administration of George Draper's estate. (Probably the George Draper who went hunting and never returned. His wife was killed by Indians in July 1755 at Draper's Meadow on New or Wood's River). On Nov. 27, 1755, Robert Looney and John Mills were processioners for Looney's Creek and the waters thereof. In February. of 1756 Robert Looney was killed by the enemy at Reed's Creek, "nigh Alex Sawyer's" east of Kings Mills, later Kingsport, Tennessee. (William Preston's Journal.)

Margaret Looney gave bond as administratrix 17 March 1756. John Looney and Robert Rowland were sureties. (Was Margaret related to Robert Rowland?) This John Looney was a younger brother to Robert and at about this time he became son-in-law to Stephen Rentfro. The Robert Looney, Jr. estate was appraised 15 may 1756 by John Bowen, Hugh Caruthers, Robert Rowland, and William Harbison. Margraet Looney may have been identical with the Margaret Looney who in Bedford County, Virginia, in 1759 sued Anthony (Fee Book) when Anthony sued Looney and Co.(Order Book).

Per Miss Elizabeth Looney: "Was killed Feb 15, 1756 on Looney Creek, Augusta(now Botetourt) County, Virginia by Shawnee Indians."

Margaret md. 2) Stephen RENFRO

Notes on the Rhea Family. Matthew Rhea of Donegal, Ireland, had 4 sons (and perhaps some daughters) by his first wife and 4 sons and a daughter by his second wife, Elizabeth McClain. Several of these children came to America "early" and settled in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. Among these who came early were William of Chester County, Pennsylvania, and Isaac also of Pennsylvania. Their half-brother, the Rev. Joseph Rhea (1715-1777), with wife Elizabeth McIlevaine, came to Philadelphia in 1769 with children John, Mathew IV who later married Jane Preston, William, Joseph, and a daughter. They lived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Taneytown, Maryland, but he died before he could move his family to Sullivan County in East Tennessee, where he had bought land on Beaver Creek of the Holston River. Mathew IV (1755-1816) who married Mary Looney b. 1801, daughter of Abrham3 (David 2) and Elizabeth (Gammon)
Looney. The compiler suggests that Margaret Rhea, whose marriage to Robert2 Looney Jr. must have taken place about 1742 or 1743 (very soon after Robert1 Looney and family removed from northern Virginia to the James River settlement in Augusta County), must have been a sister or half-sister to Rev. Joseph Rhea.
