This has all been so very fascinating...thanks so much for taking the time to pull it together. I've just read, and saved a copy of, the document you wrote.

You have information regarding my siblings and myself...let me know if you'd like the next two generations. I'll be glad to gather and send to you.

Thanks again!

My niece, Alysha Rearley, posted yesterday (11/26/2018). I am getting into genealogy. My father, Harold Edward Rearley, married Edna Mae Coder (dae unknown at this time) and later married Donna Bethel Rearley. Both Edna Mae, Harold & Donna are deceased. I married Vernon Ray Viar (NOT Bruce Viar -- this is my husband's brother) on March 6, 1971. We have no children. I am thankful to Alysha for finding your site and letting me know. It is a wealth of information.

Connection to the Family?:  Anton Ottney (Otteni) 1786-1865

I came across your website researching my family's history for a book I am writing. I think the easiest way to connect us is through my maternal great-grandfather Marcus Binner (1850-1928) who was married to Caroline Ottney/Otteni) (854-1903). Caroline's sister also married a Binner. Caroline's daughter Caroline Louise Binner was my maternal grandmother (1892-1943). She was the black sheep of their family. She met and married a young Italian printer named Vincenzo Casabianca. Their first child, a girl named Josephine was my mother. Marcus Binner led a fantastical life; I heard a story about how he was hit by lightning and survived while he was shoeing a horse. I never believed it until I found two newspaper articles that verified it. I also found old photographs of him in his Shenandoah beard. I traced the Ottney line to 1687-1711. Mathias Otteni. The Italian Otteni origin explains why my DNA has a strong Italian link and less Germanic than I had anticipated. Thanks.

I am fascinated by the background research you have done, especially the possibility/likelihood that the Otteni surname may be Italian.
