He married, 1807, Lower Path Valley Presbyterian Church, Fannettsburg, PA, Ruth Noble, daughter of Joseph and Susanna (McClelland) Noble. She was born 1783, Franklin Co., PA, and died 1823.

Children of Alexander and Ruth (Noble) Widney:

iii. (child) Widney, b. 1812.

He was almost certainly a close relative (possibly a nephew) of James Widney (c1720-1770), whose children settled in Fannett Township, Franklin Co., PA. Similarly for William Widney (c1798-1865), of the same place. He could be a son of William Widney (b1755-a1800), of Fannet and Hamilton Townships, Franklin Co., PA.
