The originator of my line is Thomas Findley of Ireland, who came to the United States sometime in the late 1700s and landed at Virginia.  He moved westward into Kentucky soon after it becoming a state.   He married Rachel Cecelia Pollard, daughter of Henry Pollard, Sr., in Madison County, Kentucky on 09 Feb 1796 in route to Shelby County (his farm was located in present-day Oldham County).   Henry Pollard and family also ended up in Shelby County.   Oldham County was formed in 1824 and the Findley/Fendley farm sat in the Covington Ridge/Westport area of the county near the line of present-day Trimble County.   Thomas and Rachel had nine children:

1)  Nancy, born abt 1797 in Kentucky, married Oliver Pollock on 10 Nov 1821 in neighboring Henry County, Kentucky.
2)  Rachel, born 28 Nov 1798 in Kentucky, married Willis Todd, Sr. and moved into Indiana.  She died 17 Nov 1859.
3)  George, born 28 Sep 1800, died 6 May 1865.   I have a marriage date of 28 Oct 1823, but uncertain as to the bride.
4)  Silas A., born 7 Mar 1802 in Kentucky, and married 29 Jul 1824 in Oldham County, to Malinda Ragsdale, daughter of Richard & Martha McDowell Ragsdale.
5)  Thomas Pollard (my line), born 7 Mar 1808 in Kentucky, married 21 Jan 1830 to Phoebe Nay, daughter of Samuel, Sr. & Nancy Bennett Nay, and died    23 Dec 1877 in Oldham County.  Buried in the Fendley Graveyard (also known as the Covington Ridge Cemetery).
6)  Andrew Jackson, born 27 Feb 1815 in Kentucky, and married 10 Apr 1838 to Ann Nay, daughter of James & Elizabeth Kemper Nay.  He died 31 Jul 1888 in LaGrange, Oldham County.
7)  William, born abt 1822 in Kentucky, married 03 Apr 1845 to Elizabeth Judith Leet, daughter of Jeptha Seign & Alphania Sherley Leet .
8)  Rebeckah, born unknown in Kentucky, and died 9 Apr 1880 in Oldham County, Kentucky.
9)  Cecelia, born unknown in Kentucky, and married George Kelly.

My line of Thomas Pollard and Phoebe Nay had eight known children.   Please email me for the details on the other children.
 
Their son, John W. Fendley, born Aug 1834 & passing away abt 1880, married Harriet N. Kelly, daughter of James Sr. & Elizabeth Varble Kelly on 19 Oct 1854 in Oldham County, was my direct ancestor.   

John & Harriet had 4 known children, of which, George Washington Fendley, being my second great grandfather.   He was born 13 Apr 1869 in Oldham County and married Mary Willis Pennington, daughter of Lionel & Lavisa J. Garriott Pennington.   He committed suicide on 26 Dec 1918 after being diagnosed with a terminal illness.   On 28 Dec 1918, he was laid to rest in Collier's Cemetery.

My great grandfather was Alvin Wesley Fendley, born 25 Apr 1891 in Kentucky.   He married Flora Eller Sweeney on 05 Feb 1913, daughter of William Thomas & Sarah Elizabeth Morris Sweeney.   He died 26 Apr 1980 and is buried in the Sellersburg Cemetery, Clark County, Indiana.  His farm is still there where he and Flora lived most of their lives.   Their two youngest spinster daughters live there still to this day.

My grandfather was named William Hayden Fendley, born 20 Nov 1913 in Harrod's Creek, Jefferson County, Kentucky.   He married Grace Niree Owens, daughter of John Thomas & Grace Elizabeth Brown Owens.   He died young 28 Feb 1951 of cancer and is buried at the Shiloh Methodist Church Cemetery at Skylight, Oldham County.   Most of his children are still living, including my mother, by which I descend from this line.

The earliest Findley ancester that we have read about was Macboeda Macbeth Fionnladh Finley, King of Scotland from 1039 until his death in 1057.

But skipping several generation and going to my husband's earliest ancestor that came to the new world would be:

Archibald Findley b. c. 1735 in Belfast, Antrim Co, Ireland d: 1809 in Armstrong Township, Indiana Co., PA who was married 3 times before marrying Mary (Poe) Peden.

Archibald was a patriot signer or remonstrance of inhabitants of York Co PA, 1779 according to Delia Elizabeth Bell's DAR papers.
Will Smith has it that Archibald Findley "Came to America in 1763 with William Findley (1717-) & four of William's sons, Alexander, James (1739-), William (1741-1821), Andrew (1749). Edith Findley Tate thought he was the son of either John (1713-1757), Andrew (1717-1782) or Michael (1718-1785 & came to merica with his uncles, William, James, & Michael in 1763. ? ? ?

Family history says he came to America with 3 uncles, William, Samuel & James Findley (all 4 were Presberterians). The family history has him named Archabel, probably a misspelling of the name.

Children of Archibald Findley before Mary were:
Abigail Findley
James Findley, d 1783, York, PA USA
Alexander Findley

Archibald and Mary's children were:
David Findley b 15 Sep 1793, d. 22 Sep 1866
Abel b. 08 May 1784
Alexander b. 1786
Martha
John
Mary
Jane
Anna

David Findley b. 15 Sep 1793 in Brush Valley, Indiana Co. PA  d. 26 Feb 1919 was married to Margaret McCormick or McCormack c. 1820 in PA.
The children of David Findley and Margaret McCormick are:
David Grant Findley b. 23 Jun 1829, Brush Valley, Indiana Co, PA  d. 26 Feb 1919
Mathew Gear Findley b. 23 Jun 1829 Brush Valley, Indiana Co, PA
Margaret b 23 Jun 1833, Brush Valley, Indiana Co, PA
Marques

David Grant Findley was in the Civil War.  Service Records: Findley David I 211 Pennsylvania Inf.,  Private Corporal in the Union army. David Grant
was married to Mary Ann McFeaters b. 03 May 1837  d. 28 Nov 1889. Their children were:

Elmer Grant Findley b.. 14 Jun 1867 in PA, USA d. 13 Jun 1951 in Cleveland, 
   Pawnee Co OK
Marques Findley
Antoinette Findley
Margaret Findley
Essie Findley
Lottie Findley (became a doctor in Kansas)
Matthew Findley
Milton Findley
John Anderson Findley
Mary Findley

Elmer Grant was my husband's grandfather who was married to Minnie Holderread, b. 30 Mar 1880 d. 06 Nov 1912. Elmer G. Findley, a farmer, loaned money to people who needed help. He also gave to various concerns, one was for blind students to help with their school expenses.

Elmer Grant and Minnie's children were:
Elzie Milton Findley
Albert Ervin Findley
Lester Grant Findley
Ruth Findley (Minnie died shortly after Ruth's birth or in childbirth)

Elzie Milton Findley, b. 08 Sep 1900, Ripley, Payne Co., OK USA. d. 02 Jun 1906, d. 26 Feb 1973, Tulsa, Tulsa Co, OK USA was married to Beulah Rose Chambers on 22 Nov 1927, Oklahoma City, OK Co, OK. Beulah R was b. 02 Jun 1906, Jennings, Pawnee Co, OK, USA and d. 06 Feb 1980 in Tulsa, Tulsa Co., OK USA. They made their home in the rural Cleveland, OK area. Their children are all living.
