Following from OneWorldTree database entry:

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 Loonwy 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 Feb. 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).
