Bernier/Barney Surnames of Dewey Co., OK
Dr. Garold D. Barney says, "I was born in Seiling (Oklahoma) in 1932, my great grandfather homesteaded in what is now Dewey County. Considerable controversy exists as to the correct name of my great grandfather. Is it Alanzo Bernier--later Barney or Amable Bernier--later Barney.
The name appears in the Dewey County homestead record---the third entry in the book---but the handwriting is not that clear. The recorder says Alanzo/Amable "made his mark."
My grandfather was named Edward Clyde Barney (as was my father) and was married to Anna Spring (Keokuck, Iowa).
Both my parents were born in Seiling. Mothers family traced themselves through Milo Earnest Walker and Horace Durphey. Any information or suggested contacts would greatly appreciated." -- garold d. barney, Iowa - EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org
