James Widney (1st) was awarded a large estate in County Tyrone, in recognition of Col. Widney's war efforts. James Widney (2d) inherited the estate by [primogeniture], then sold the entire estate and moved his family, with the exception of his sister Sarah Widney (who immigrated with Hugh Linn), to Concord, Pennsylvania. In honor of Col. John Widney, each of the children of James and Mary Widney named their first child "John." [5] [6]

According to a post by Carroll Spear, Buelah Widney Wall of Oklahoma City compiled the genealogy chart which states that James Widney was the son of Colonel John Widney, who was the son of Captain John Widney, who was part of the Scottish Brigade in Holland.
