Alexander W. Perry married Abigail Cheney in Mankato MN in 1897. Abigail was born in Wisconsin and her father, Hannibal Cheney, was from Brandon Vermont. Her mother, Susan Leonard, was from Massachusetts. A.W. Perry was my great grandfather.
There were other Cheneys who lived in the Mankato area, mostly around Rapidan.
My research in Brandon did not uncover a Hannibal Cheney, however I did find many other Cheneys, a Cheney Hill, and Cheney cemetery.
