About Discovered Olney

   Perhaps his name was actually Discovery, as there are Olneys given this name in later generations. The story passed down in the family by oral tradition was that Discovery was born at sea as the family was approaching the American shore. I found this story in a county history of Madison County, Ohio, where one of the Olneys was named Discovery.
