Hi there,
 
I probably am related to you somehow, by grandmother being a Feeny that married a Crosby.  I found my father's name, but with an error as to his wife's name and can give you a correction if you would like to enter it. 
 
My father was Ralph Elwin Crosby, son of Lloyd Ira Crosby and Edith May Feeny.  It lists my brother, sister and myself correctly.  Sharon, Diane and Steven Crosby, but lists my father's first wife (our mother) incorrectly.  Her name was Beatrice Fairweather, not Elizabeth Bonafant.  (This mix up would have occurred because my mother re-married a Bonenfant and she was called by the nick name, Betty . . hence Elizabeth, I suppose.)
 
My father was married again after my mother and her name was Gladys Whitehouse.  All of them deceased now.  There were no children of that 2nd marriage.
 
Thanks in advance for the correction.

174. Dolores Soteris, “Re: Feeny Family,” 2 Dec 2003.
Dear Brian:
I've thought of you so often and I'm sorry I haven't been better at getting
more information about the Feeny family. My father had a brother Lester Feeny
from Norway, Maine. His son, Lester Jr. was in the service during WWII. When
he came home he was one of the first GI's to purchase a house from Sears and
Roebuck catalog. Sears offered a prefab house completely delivered. All you
needed was a log to put it on. I have the advertisement. If I can find it,
I'll send ia copy to you. The last place I knew Lester Jr. lived was in
Braintree,. Mass. He had a son, I think Lonny and I think a daughter. It's been so
long I don't have any further info on them.

My father Harold Feeny Sr., was in the shoe business, manufacturing. He made
baby shoes called Rompers and my mother sold them out of the trunk of her car
to all her friends back in the 1930's (How about that) He wanted to start a
business of his own called Fenco Co. It stood for Feeny & Co. The shoe
business was very tough even back in those days and when foreign imports started
coming in cheap, many American factories closed and he never really got
started. When I needed an e-mail address I chose Fenco out of a tribute to him.

I was awed by the letter you sent me from Arnold. He was my father's step
brother. When my grandmother Leona Tibbetts died Grampa Feeny married Laura and
they had Arnold. The story goes that Laura threw out all the original
children including my father and his own brothers. My father was about 12 years old
and out on his own. He managed school up to 6 or 7 grade. But he was so
brilliant self taught that he ended up teaching college grads the shoe business.
He worked for the United Shoe Machinery Corp. here in Boston (1937?-1955) as
a consultant, teaching shoe manufacturing all across the country. When he
retired aroung 1955, he was asked by the Shoe Corporation of America to go to
Puerto Rico and start a shoe factory there and teach the Puerto Rican people how
to work on an assembly line. It was part of a good-will plan the US had back
then, called "Operation Boot Strap". Luiz Benetes Carle, (not sure of the
spelling) from a wealthy Puerto Rican family made all the arrangements. My
mother and I went to P.R. with him and stayed there from October until Christmas
1956. Mom and I had a great time. While my poor father was working in the
factory, Mom and I went hopping around all the islands in the Caribbean. St.
Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Santo Domingo and Haiti. We were supposed to go to
Jamaica and Cuba, but there was a terrific hurricane and all communications
were lost. We got stranded in Haiti on Thanksgiving and the only plane we could
get went directly back to Miami. We grabbed it and met my father back in
Miami a few days later and came home to Lynn.

There have been a few new additions to my brother Harold Feeny Jr.'s family
in Saratoga springs, NY. His son Ronald/Millie have a daughter Sharon and a
son Sean. Sharon and her husband Michael now has two children a boy and a girl.
Sean/Beckey have a new son named Connor Feeny.

My brother Harold's widow Virginia is still alive in Saratoga springs near
her son Ron and his family. She is around 83. I haven't been out to see them
for a couple of years, but hope to get there this spring. It's a four-hour
drive.

I'll see if I can find any more information. Keep in touch. Merry
Christmas. If you ever get out this way please look me up.

Dolores
