General Disccussion

In the back of the Harris book, there are some 48 pages of Chenoweth lines that were unplaced at the time the book was published. Each of these sections is detailed on this page. In the intervening time, some have been placed within the main family tree. Others have been identified as not Chenoweth, belonging to other surnames. A few lines within the main family tree have been found to be in error and have been displaced. New unknown lines have been discovered. This page is an attempt to sort out the various statuses of these groups.

Part of the difficulty in genealogy is obtaining names of family members prior to the 1850 Census. For the Chenoweth family there are several gaps between some 3rd and 4th generation lines, that no continuation is known for, and the numerous new groupings that are picked up in the 1850 Census. Many of these unknown lines have developed from this phenomenon.

Ironically, one of the biggest areas of lost lines is in Baltimore Co., MD and its environs, where the Chenoweth family was founded. Not only are a large number of unconnected lines, but there is a dearth of known female lines. It should be noted that both major Chenoweth books have been written from outside this key area. Indeed, until recently there had been no comprehensive research source within Maryland, dealing specifically with this family. Perhaps because the family members there became "citified" and became many renters instead of landowners, making the trace documents found elsewhere non-existent. Perhaps in the clamor of a large city, family members became more easily separated from each other and the connecting ties loss. People in urban centers tend to move around more. The sheer density of the haystack makes more difficulty to find people. It does not help that the 1800 Census for Baltimore County, where the majority of the family lived, does not exist, only the Census for the City of Baltimore itself is preserved. Whatever the reason, Maryland remains an area of many questions.

In 2010, after 14 years of research 5 of the major unknown lines were placed with out a proof document as highly probable fits. These were John of Texas, John of Ohio, John Wesley of Piatt Co., IL, William R of Oregon and William, Jr. of Jaspar Co., IA . A more complete discussion can be found on the background page

Major unplaced Maryland groups are: [Charles - b: 1833], [George - b: Bet. 1760-1769], [Harry Jerome - b: 1874], [John - Abt. 1789], [Priscilla - b: 1792], [Richard - b: 1800-1815], [Richard - b: 1825], [Thomas J. - b: March 18, 1833]

It is most probable that a very high percentage of these unknown lines are indeed part of the Chenoweth family of John and Mary. These names, in the main, show up in areas where family members are known to have resided. No other major Chenoweth family immigration has been found until well after the turn of the 19th century. It is also probable that most of them are in the line of Richard(2) as we known very little of what happened to his six sons other than John. This appears especially true for those that use the spelling "Chenowith".

Please Note: most of the text in the detail section below is directly quoted from the Harris Book. A special thanks to Peter Chenoweth whose work has placed so many of these descendants and expanded the knowledge of their lines. This page is dedicated in hope that these 'unknowns' may be added to their proper place in the Chenoweth family.

Lines Displaced from the Harris Tree

Recent information has shifted a few of the stated lines given by Harris. In some instances these have 'orphaned' lines that were originally included within the tree framework, and they have been relegated to an unknown status.

  • Amanda b: 1823 in Mason Co., KY married Elijah Garrett September 07, 1842 in Putnam Co., IN. She is found on page 497 of the Harris book. Actually Harris lists two marriages for Amanda, one to William Hubbard and one to Elijah Garrett. In reality this is two separate Amanada's and the Hubbard marriage remains in the main family tree. But who is this other Amanda who married Elijah Garrett? Rosella Vohs has brought certain information to light. As Amanda was underage, a Lewis Kendle vouched for her marriage. This Lewis Kindle married a widow, Mary Chenoweth, in 1838. There is another daughter, Elizabeth, who married John R. Paris. This Mary Chenoweth is thought to be the 'Polly' Dix who married a Thomas Chenoweth in 1820 in Mason Co., KY. Thomas, in turn is thought to be the son of William(3) Thomas(2) who is said to have remained in Mason Co., KY after his siblings crossed into Ohio? This line is unproven, but included in the database at William(3)
  • Arthur b: 1786 in Maryland married Sarah or Rachael Bowen. He is found on page 465 of the Harris book as a son of Arthur(4) Richard(3) Thomas(2). This entry is straight from Cora Hiatt. The Bowen wife is said to have been a sister to the preacher, Ephriam Bowen, of Ohio, the grandfather of the many Bowens who married with the Chenoweths in Randolph Co., IN. If this Arthur exists, he is not properly placed. Arthur, the son of Richard, married in Ohio and went with his father and siblings to White and Tippecanoe Counties in Indiana. Cora Hiatt said this Arthur lives on Bullit Mountain. Harris says this was near Mount Washington, Bullitt Co., KY. Listed children are Ephraim, John and Terrie. The son Ephraim is confused in the Harris book with Ephraim B. Chenoweth s/o Absolom(4) Absolom(3), John(2) who went to Morgan Co., IN (see background notes). It is not sure whether this Arthur existed.
  • James D. b: abt. 1813 in Ohio married Nancy Skilling. He is found on page 506 of the Harris book as a son of William(4) William I(3) now William(2). At the time of publication, the marriage date of William(4) was not known. Rosella Vohs and Greg Wulker have found this marriage to be December 23, 1825 to Rachel Cassel. James was born a number of years before this event so he is not the son of William. It is now believed that James D. is James 'Lewis' son of William S.4 John3 John2
  • James Mathias b: Aft. 1765 in Hampshire Co., VA (now WV) married Nancy McBride. With the recent placement of William I as the son of William(3) (see background notes) James Mathias as cited on page 388 becomes an unknown quantity. The other given siblings of William(3) William(2) as given in both Hiatt and Harris, have never been found. This is a very blurred and confused area of the family tree. James Mathias is said to have gone to Perry Co., OH. This is the same area that James(4) John(3) John(2) settled in with his brothers Elias and Absolom. This James married a Susan McBride. It appears that these two individuals named James are the same person. This is the direction the website has used, so James Mathias is not displaced, but merged as a son of John(3) John(2) and not William(3) William(2).
  • The children of Joseph Hiatt describes 3 sons of Joseph the son of Richard(2) [page 294]. Like most of Richard's children, little is known. Joseph is in Richard's will and was designated to be Executor, but Richard, Jr, took over this assignment at some point. The three sons, Abraham, John and Samuel have no recorded lives. Cora describes a marriage of Samuel to Elizabeth Shipley on Jun 20, 1820. Then she lists children that appear to be those of Samuel Chenoweth and Nancy Elizabeth Orr. Harris then describes a James H. who served in the Civil War. This is a real individual, but who he is uncertain. In the 1910 Census of North Dakota he states that his parents were born in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, making it unlikely that he is part of the family of John & Mary.
  • Sarah b: June 28, 1793 in Maryland married Moses Sutton, Jr. January 27, 1814 in Licking Co., OH. She is found on page 465 of the Harris book. Like Arthur above she is not a child of Richard(3) Thomas(2). By Richard's will in Tippecanoe Co., IN, his child Sarah likely died young. (see background notes). The dates of this Sarah who married Moses and Richard's Sarah are slightly different. At one point it was thought that Sarah was a daughter of a son from Arthur Chenoweth who married Ann Beasman and lived in Baltimore. Some of Arthur's children, mainly Sarah, who married Samuel Baxter, and Arthur, who married Elizabeth Baxter, are known to have gone West, first to Brooke Co., VA (now WV) and then Sarah to Muskingum Co. which borders Licking Co. Moreover Sarah and Moses Sutton named 2 sons: Stansberry and Baxter. Both these ties are found in the families of the children of Arthur and Ann Beasman Chenoweth. But examination of Census data of the son Arthur in Brook Co., VA in 1810 shows no daughter Sarah's age (17 at the time). Moreover, it is believed that this Arthur may possibly be the Arthur who ten years later shows up in Harrison Co., OH in the 1820 Census. How Sarah, in 1814, got to Licking County remains a mystery. Moses was the nephew of Abraham Sutton who married Mary Chenoweth, now known to be the daughter of William(2).

    Chenoweth ties that are still Unknown

    Some Chenoweth names, included in the body of the family tree, are still unknown. They are tied by marriage to a known family line, but their own ancestry has not been determined.

  • Catharine b: April 20, 1766 married Daniel Kittle in Virginia (now West Virginia). Daniel's parents were Abraham Kittle and Christina Westfall. At least three brothers of Daniel had descendant ties with the family of John(4) William(3) John(2) in Randolph Co., VA (now WV), including a niece, Lydia Kittle, who married William Pugh Chenoweth. There are no known Catherines this early in the family histories. It is said they lived in Wood Co., VA (now WV)
  • Cloe b: 1740s married Henry Switzer. She is found on page 198-9 of the Harris book. Two of their children married, in Botetourt Co., VA, Chenoweths, children of Thomas(3) John(2): Nathan Switzer married Elizabeth Chenoweth and Mary Switzer married Nicholas Ruxton Chenoweth. Cloe's maiden name was really Smith, though she was raised as a ward of John Chenoweth Henry Switzer is known to have had land dealings with William(3) Chenoweth s/o John in Frederick Co., VA [brother to Thomas(3)].
  • Elizabeth b: 1786 in Maryland married Elias Passmore May 17, 1814 in Mercer Co., KY. She is found on page 223 of the Harris book. Two of their daughters married, in Kentucky, Chenoweths, sons of James S. Chenoweth(4) Richard(3) John(2): Mary "Nancy" Trapnall Passmore married Thomas Hanna Chenoweth and Cassandra Passmore married William S. Chenoweth. This Elizabeth may well be the daughter Elizabeth mentioned by the Bosley family from the marriage of Arthur and Cassandra below.
  • Jesse J. b: Bet. 1880 - 1882 in Indiana married Hattie Hollowell August 30, 1904 in Noble, Cleveland Co., OK. They are found on page U613 of the Harris book. But Hattie is a Chenoweth descendant, her great grandmother being Rachel Chenoweth who married Smithson Hollowell in Lick Creek, Orange Co., IN. For the lines of his 2nd wife, Ruth Cleo Brooks and a discussion of who Jesse might be please see detail.
  • John P. b: Bet. 1800 - 1830 married Henrietta Chenoweth November 20, 1850 in Knox Co., TN. He is found on page 259 of the Harris book. Henrietta was the daughter of Richard(4) Arthur(3) Richard(2).
  • Sibley b: Bef. 1835 married William Fulks. She is found on page 570 of the Harris book. Their son, Samuel David Fulks, married Lucy Jane Chenoweth in Randolph Co., IN. Lucy was a 6th generation Chenoweth in the line of Thomas(2). How this strange name fits into the family has never been determined.

    Newly developed unknowns [and some placed]

  • Alexander b: 1848 Ohio m: Jennie Bush
  • Archibald b: bef 1870, lived in Nebraska married Luciane Branch Patterson.
  • Arthur b: Bet. 1745 - 1755 married Casandra Bosley, March 24, 1784 in Baltimore Co., MD. This is now thought to be Arthur3 Richard2. They are said to have had at least one child, Elizabeth and to have gone to Kentucky. Casandra's sister, Delilah Bosley, married John Helm. Later widowed, she remarried to Arthur Chenoweth(3), the widower of Ann Beasman, July 29, 1778, probably in Maryland. It was Arthur's second marriage as well. Cassandra and Delilah were daughters of William Bosley and Elizabeth Dimmitt, a Baltimore County family. Though this marriage is known to the Bosely family, it has never been included in Chenoweth histories. This gets very tangled. The date of this marriage is such that it could only be one of the two third generation Arthurs of Baltimore or an early unlisted Arthur of the 4th generation. It is now thought that this marriage would best match Arthur(3) the son of Richard. Traditionally this Arthur is the one given to have married Ann Beasman, but evidence is mounting that the Arthur who married married Ann Beasman was Arthur, Jr. That Arthur is living in the Soldiers Delight 100 where Arthur(2) located. Richard's Arthur appears to be single in 1783 and living in the Middle River and Back River Upper 100s. Elmer Haile noted that Arthur and Cassandra settled in Hartford County. This again is would infer a Richard(2) line. One other item of interest. An Elizabeth Chenoweth, b: 1786 Maryland married to an Elias Passmore of Virginia appears in the 1850 Kentucky Census. She named a daughter Casandra who married William S. Chenoweth. This Elizabeth in age would match the details of the daughter, Elizabeth, cited by the Bosely family. See Arthur.

    Detail

    AARON b: ca. 1782 m [page 589] Aaron was born about 1782 in Virginia. The only information known about him is from the 1850 which enumerated him, members of a Mattox family and Edwin Rolling living in the 27th District of Jackson County in Virginia.

    ADDED DETAIL: In the 1850 Census the name was spelled Chenrout, Chesenout, Chesmnout, Cheverout, and Chesrout. This XXX There is a high likelihood that these are not Chenoweths. Aaron b: 1792, Isaac b: 1803, Joseph, Joseph B. and P.G. b: 1823 all lived in the same area and are probably related.

Ten years later in 1880, Jennie is a widow in Fayette Co., OH with a daughter, Lucy born 1872 in Indiana. Jennie is successively found in Fayette Co., OH on each subsequent Census through 1930.

    AMON b: ca 1791

    Amon Chenowitz, b: 1791 from Pennsylvania, is known to be the father of two sons, Amon and Samuel who lived in Warrick County, IN.

    son Amon: ("Amos" in an 1850 Census) was born about 1812 in Pennsylvania, died September 30, 1874, killed by a horse. His body was found in the road near Yankeetown in Warrick County, Indiana. He is probably buried in the Chenoweth family cemetery located about 1-1/4 miles NE of Yankeetown.

    Amon was married twice. First to Anna B. Smith on May 6, 1841, by John W. Youngblood in Warrick County, Indiana. She was born about 1822 in Indiana. They, and three of their children were enumerated in the 1850 Census living in Anderson twp., in Warrick County. In that record Amon and Anna were listed as "Amos" and "Amy".

    Amon and Anna had six children before she died on Dec 29, 1852. She is also buried in the Chenoweth family cemetery.

    Anna's death left Amon with their six children, the oldest about eleven, the youngest, newborn. Amon married his second wife, Marie Meeks, widow of Athe Meeks, on March 24, 1853, the ceremony performed in Spencer County, Indiana by M.T. Meeks, JP. Amon and Marie had no children. They were divorced in September 1859.

    In 1860, and again 1870, Amon was enumerated in the Census of those years as a farmer, still living in Anderson twp., Warrick County. In 1860, his three surviving daughters were shown living with him, Listed living with him in the 1870 Census was his daughter "Cintha" (Cynthiann Eliza) and her 4 year old son George.

    Amon made his will in Warrick County on December 24, 1872, and it was proven there on September 28, 1874. In his will, Amon made bequests of land to his three surviving children, daughters Cynthiann Eliza, Hanna Sarah Jane, and Druzilla Luana. He also left them the remainder of his estate to be divided equally.

    son Samuel: Born about 1811 in Pennsylvania, He, Harriet, and their four children were recorded in the 1850 Census as residents in Ohio Twp., Spencer County, Indiana. Samuel was noted as being a farmer there. Harriet was listed as 27 years old, born in Iowa. (this is probably a transcription error, and should be taken to be that she that she was born in Indiana.)

    From records at the county court house in Warrick County, Indiana (adjacent to Spencer County), is the record of a Samuel Chenoweth who married Mary Ann Smith on April 17, 1834; and of a Samuel Chenoweth and a Harriet Bacon who were issued a marriage license on April 9, 1849. There is the possibility that these were first and second marriages of the Samuel who is the subject of this narrative.

    ADDED DETAIL: There is a possibility that this line is really Absolom the s/o Thomas(3) Arthur(2) as Amon. Absolom was known to have gone to Kentucky. The times and timing of this family fits as do the names used, but no proof of this theory has been found and it is far from certain. Recently the line of the son Samuel has been extended to present day.

    Archibald b: bef 1870, lived in Nebraska. His wife was Luciane Branch Patterson. This is a Black Family. Archibald was from Missouri, he died in the 1950s in Omaha Nebraska. Luciane Branch Patterson was born in Louisville, KY. May have been born a slave and was well cared for by the Patterson family. Luciane's mother cooked for this family until Luciane was 3 years of age. Luciane married at the age 13 in KY to a Patterson and moved to Missouri. Archibald's daughter Bettie graduated high school in the class of 1902, Fremont, NE. Other children were: Vina and Nan, and two sons that died young, Alex and Bishop. They spelled their name Chineworth. Information on him is from his descendant, Wardell Smith and Sister Mary Alice Chineworth, a nun in Maryland. It is assumed that Archibald was a slave of a Missouri Chenoweth family, but information on this is presently lacking.

    BENJAMIN b: ca 1843 m: Margaret Colbert [page 596] Benjamin and Margaret Colbert were married October 31, 1865 in Baltimore County, Maryland. ADDED DETAIL: Benjamin is found in the 1870 Census of the 1st district of Baltimore Co. with his wife Margaret and mother Kesiah. This Census gives us his age. It is now known from Tanjla Rae Vasquez that Benjamin was the son of Richard Chenoweth and Keziah Coe. Keziah Coe, born 1813, married Richard Chenowith, Dec 03, 1831 in Baltimore Co., MD she was the daughter of William Coe and Hannah Barber. The Coes lived near Cub Hill in Baltimore Co. the brother of Keziah, Benjamin, married Elizabeth Ann Francies, the daughter of Thomas Francies and Priscilla Chenoweth. As Priscilla was the daughter of an unknown Richard Chenoweth and Elizabeth Burton, it is likely that this Richard (m: Keziah Coe) is also in this same unknown line.

    EDWARD b: bef 1800 [page 600] Edward is known only from a few meager records noting his service in the War of 1812. On Oct 29, 1853, John H. Saunders, the administrator of Edward's estate, made affidavit in Richmond, Virginia, that Edward had never been paid for his army service, and requested remuneration by the courts, to Edward's estate.

    Edward was a private in the volunteer company organized in the city of Petersburg, Virginia, known as the "Petersburg Volunteers". This unit, commanded by Captain Richard McRae, entered service on Oct 21, 1812, and was discharged Oct 17, 1813 at Detroit, Territory of Michigan.

    In his affidavit, John H. Saunders stated that "Edward Cheniworth served as aforesaid in said company up to the time of his death", and so, according to this, died before Oct 17, 1813, location not known.

    In his commendatory testimonial, made after the war, Adjutant-General Robert Butler, wrote about the Petersburg Volunteers, "the General feels at a loss for words adequate to convey his sense of their exalted merits; almost exclusively composed of individuals who had been nursed in a lap of ease, they have, for 12 months, borne the hardships and privations of military life in the midst of inhospitable wilderness, with a cheerfulness and alacrity which has never been surpassed."

    ELIZABETH b: abt 1803Elizabeth, was most likely the spouse of a Chenoweth male. She is enumerated in the 1850 Census living in the 6th ward, Baltimore City, MD. Listed living with her was Priscilla Chenoweth, age 30, born in Baltimore.

    Pricilla married to William C, Digget, who was born in 1817 in Virginia. ADDED DETAIL: This family is also found in the 1860 Cenus. At one time it was thought that Elizabeth was the widow Elizabeth Airey Chenoweth, but this now seems unlikely.

    ELIZABETH ? (spouse) b: 1836 m: unknown Chenoweth Elizabeth, now known as Elizabeth Eshleman married Alexander Thornton Chenoweth, born in 1830, in Berkeley Co., VA (now WV). She was born Feb 28, 1836 in Ohio, died Oct 18, 1889 in San Francisco, California. She is buried in Mountain View cemetery in Oakland, Alameda County, California.

    Elizabeth was recorded in the 1880 Census in Oakland, Alameda County, California, with seven children. The family had much trouble. One of the sons took his own life, another attempted suicide, and another shot and killed a friend and business associate, then ended his own life.

    Census work has shown Elizabeth's husband to be Alexander T. Chenoweth who is thought to be the Thornton mentioned in the will of Samuel Chenoweth, Jr. as his grandson. Thornton is in the 1850 Census of Berkeley Co., VA (now WV) working as a carpenter, the same occupation found for Alexandert T. Chenoweth in 1860 and 1870. Both are born in Virginia about 1830. Though not proven, Thornton is thought to be the son of Samuel's daughter Julia Ann Dickey, born out of wedlock.

    GEORGE b: bef 1800 [page 603] George served in the army during the war of 1812. On July 30, 1816 in Pike County, Ohio, he made affidavit to the effect that in 1814 he had served in Captain Adam Berry's company in the First Infantry Regiment, Second Brigade, of the Ohio Militia. In his sworn statement, George maintained that though he served in the army, he never had been paid, and therefore requested remuneration from the U.S. Government.

    Harry Jerome b: December 1874 Carrol Co., MD m: Rose Anna Hoffsunder. Harry, known first from contact with his descendants, appears in the 1900 Census of Baltimore in the 3rd district but has not been located in the 1880 Census with his parents. If indeed he was born in Carrol Co., MD, he may be the son "John" of similar age listed the family of Adolphus, who has never been found after 1880. Harry married Rose Anna Hoffsunder in the early 1890s and they had 6 children. The family is located in the 1920 Census in Baltimore City. Rose died September 12, 1926 and Harry Jerome on August 1934. Both are buried in the Parkwood cemetery, MD. Much of this detail has been supplied by Mary Chenowith Hurd.

    ISAAC b:1803 m: Catherine ? [page 607] Information from the 1850 Census for the 27th District of Jackson County, Virginia is the sum of the information known of Isaac and his family.

    He was born about 1803 in Virginia, and was a farmer in 1850. His wife, Catherine, was born about 1808 in Virginia.

    ADDED DETAIL: In the 1850 Census the name was spelled Chenrout, Chesenout, Chesmnout, Cheverout, and Chesrout. There is a likelihood that these are not Chenoweths. Aaron b: 1792, Isaac b: 1803, Joseph, Joseph B. and P.G. b: 1823 all lived in the same area and are probably related.

    ISAAC N(EWTON) b: September 1849 is known from Joanna Gregg, a descendant who found him in the 1900 Sevier Co, AR Census, Isaac listed his mother's POB as Indiana. Isaac married Martha Jane Ellison on April 09, 1879 in Six-Mile Valley, Logan Co., AR. They had 6 children and the family spells its name Chineworth. They are found in the 1880 Census of Logan Co. and the 1910 Sevier Co., AR where Isaac is a widower

    Recently he has been found in the 1930 Census of Oklahoma, apparently remarried to a Caroline. In that Census he states that his father was born in Ohio. This lends credence to the belief that he is the son of Joseph(4) Thomas, Jr(3) Thomas(2) who lived in Taney Co., MO and had come from Indiana. This son Isaac is found with this family in the 1850, 1860 and 1870 Census, the first 2 in Taney Co. and the latter in Polk Co., MO. He is variously interpreted as "Isaac W." "I.N.", "J.M.". Though no actual proof of this relationship has been found, it is a good fit, and the few other choices are problematic..

    JESSE b: 1882 m: Hattie ? [page 613] Jessie was born about 1882 in Indiana, died in Cleveland County, Oklahoma in 1946. Date and place of his marriage to an unknown Hattie is not known. She was born in Kansas about 1887.

    Jesse, Hattie and their son Ernest were counted in the 1900 Census as residents in Cleveland County, Oklahoma.

    Jesse is buried in the Lexington cemetery in Lexington in Cleveland County. Hattie is buried in Banner cemetery in Cleveland County. Also buried there is a Ruth Chenoweth, b: 1895 d: 19??, relationship not known. Ernest, their son lived in Oklahoma, Cleveland and McClain Counties in Oklahoma. The latter county, McClain, is where he is buried. ADDED DETAIL: Hattie is Hattie Hollowell b: August 07, 1886 in Kansas. They were married on August 30, 1904 in Noble, Cleveland Co., OK. Hattie is also a Chenoweth descendant her great grandmother being Rachel Chenoweth who married Smithson Hollowell in Lick Creek, Orange Co., IN.

    Jesse married second Ruth Cleo Brooks. Harris mentions this Ruth as being buried in the same cemetery as Jesse. In all, Jesse and family are found in the 1910, 1920 and 1930 Oklahoma Censuses. First in Cleveland Co., OK and in 1930 in McClain Co.

    Linda Kay Chenoweth Hankinson, a descendant, relates that Jesse was born in Hardinsburg, IN on August 25, 1882. His marriage certificate to Ruth Cleo Brooks gives his parents as Samuel Reed Chenoweth and Martha Peters. Either Samuel had a child by someone before he married or Samuel raised Jesse was and was considered his father. There is a story that the mother may have been Martha Eveline Chenoweth who never married. Other family members relate that Jesse was raised in as orphan until he was 18. The connection to the Washington Co., IN Chenoweths makes it most probable that Jesse was born out of wedlock to Martha Evaline Chenoweth. The background of this family is that Samuel Reed Chenoweth married Ellen B. 'Ella' Bixler on April 02, 1884. His sister was Martha Evaline Chenoweth, who never married and died at age 42 on May 06, 1894. They were children of Joseph Chenoweth and Elizabeth Stalcup, Joseph being Joseph5 John4 John3 John2.

    The lines of Jesse and his first wife Hattie Hallowell are found in the main body of the database.

    JOHN b: 1853 m: Lucy Williams [page 615] John and his family are known from the information in the 1880 Census which recorded them living in James Bayou Twp., Mississippi County, Missouri. As recorded there, John was then 27 years old, born in Kentucky. His spouse, Lucy, was 23 born in Tennessee. They had two children listed in the Census record.

    Also living with the family in the 1880 Census record was William Williams, 15, b: Kentucky, and Mary William, 19 b: Arkansas. Their relation to the family was given as a brother and a sister, assumed to Lucy, which would make her family name Williams also.

    Son: CHARLES R(oss) b: 1876 m: Maud ? [page 597] Born in March, 1876 in Illinois, Charles was enumerated in the 1900 Census, single at the time, living in Pemiscot in Pemiscot County, Missouri. In 1910, he and his wife Maud, were recorded in that year's Census as residents of Mississippi County, Arkansas, along with their three children. Maud was born about 1883 in Illinois.

    Jessee Mitchell b: 1884 in Tennessee. Information on Jessee comes from descendants. He married Tilda Ellen. They were both from Tennessee and are cound in the 1910, 1920 and 1930 Census of Pemiscott Co., MO. Jessee was believed by the family to be a son of a Charles S. Chenoweth of Golconda, Pope Co., IL. This detail appears to be confused and it is likely that he is a brother to Charles Ross.

    ADDED DETAIL: Now Proven as JOHN RUSSELL6 (JAMES ROSS5, ABSOLUM4, ABSOLUM3, JOHN2, JOHN1) by Pope Co., IL marriages. Previous discussion read: Though both John and Charles Ross are cited by Harris, the connection between the two was not made at the time. The death certificate of Charles R(oss) lists him as a son of an John Chenoweth b: in Indiana and Lucy Williams b: in Arkansas. Though the locations are different this ties to the family of John and Lucy above and confirms her maiden name. Charles died on November 19, 1946 in Benton Harbor, Berrien Harbor, MI. In 1900, Charles Ross is living in Pemiscott Co., MO., the same as Jessee Mitchell above in 1910. Descendants of Charles mention a brother Jessie. It well may be that they are brothers, though confused, the stories have many points of similarities. The most probable connection into the family falls to John Russell Chenoweth, the son of Stephen Ross. John Russell was born in 1848 in Kentucky and was raised in Indiana. He died February 24, 1884, place unknown. This information comes from family records passed on to Cora Hiatt. This fit is appealing on several levels. The family of James Ross is somewhat undeveloped from the times of Cora Hiatt. The usage of the name Ross for the middle name of a son fits within the family pattern. The locations of both Kentucky and Indiana are good as well as John's death between the 1880 and 1900 Censuses. There were only 9 Chenoweth families in Kentucky in 1850 and this is the only John that would even remotely fit. Kentucky is not known to be a place of other Chenoweth immigrations. The only difference between an exact match is the 5 year difference is age given on the 1880 Census.

    JOHN P. b: 1822 m: Sarah Elizabeth Moore [page 620] HARRIS: Born December 11, 1822 in Ross county, Ohio, died August 2, 1913 in Rockbridge County, Virginia. The name of John's first wife is now known to be Ruth Mickle. They had four children, and it is known she died in 1866 in Adams County, Indiana.

    John married a second time, to Sarah Elizabeth Moore on November 16, 1882. She was born in November 1846, in (what is now) West Virginia, and had been previously married to William Hambris, who died June 23, 1881. Sarah and John had one child.

    John enlisted in the army on April 23, 1863 at Springfield, Illinois as a private in Bridge's Battery, Illinois Light Artillery Volunteers. He later transferred to Company B, 1st Regiment Illinois Light Artillery. His battery was engaged in action near Columbia, Tennessee November 28-29, 1864 and at Franklin, Tennessee on November 30, 1864. John was captured in action at Spring Hill, near Columbia on that same day and he was confined a prisoner of war at Andersonville, Georgia. He was there from November 30,1864 to April 11, 1865, and during that time dropped from 190 to 120 pounds.

    John was paroled at Jacksonville, Florida on April 28, 1865 and returned to Benton Barracks at St. Louis, Missouri on May 17, 1865, where he was mustered out with his company on May 22, 1865.

    After the war, John traveled all over the country teaching and preaching, (he was a Baptist minister). After he left the army he lived 2 years in Canada, 21 years in West Virginia, and 24 years in Rockbridge County, Virginia. He was recorded living in Rockbridge County in the special 1890 Veteran's Census, and he and Sarah were enumerated in the Census of 1900 and 1910 living in Buena Vista County in Virginia.

    ADDED DETAIL: John P. was the son of Thomas Chenoweth and Rachel Ann Swane. This marriage took place on February 18, 1822 in Ross Co., OH where John P. was born later this same year. It is possible that this Thomas was the son of John Chenoweth and Rachel Kerr. Nothing of this son Thomas is presently known. Possibly this John P. is the same unknown John P. that appears in various places, with brief marriages that resulted in one child. See notes under James Garrison.

    JOHN R. b: before 1800 m: Margaret Miller [page 621] John, a veteran of the War of 1812, came to Indiana in 1840. His wife, Mary Miller was born in Erie County, New York. John died in 1875.

    ADDED DETAIL: This family is Chilcote and not Chenoweth.

    JOSEPH b: 1809 m: Hannah ? [page 622] Born about 1809 in Virginia, Joseph, his wife Hannah and their children were enumerated in the 1850 Census living in the 27th District in Jackson County, Virginia. Joseph is listed as being a farmer. In that record, Hannah was shown as being age 39, born in New York.

    ADDED DETAIL: In the 1850 Census the name was spelled Chenrout, Chesenout, Chesmnout, Cheverout, and Chesrout. There is a likelihood that these are not Chenoweths. Aaron b: 1792, Isaac b: 1803, Joseph, Joseph B. and P.G. b: 1823 all lived in the same area and are probably related.

    JOSEPH B. b: 1823 m: Elizabeth ? [page 622] Joseph B. Chenoweth and his wife Elizabeth were enumerated in the 1850 Census of the 27th District in Jackson County, Virginia. That record noted he was the 27 years old, born in Virginia, and was a farmer. Elizabeth was 23 years old and was also born in Virginia. They had one child, a son.

    ADDED DETAIL: In the 1850 Census the name was spelled Chenrout, Chesenout, Chesmnout, Cheverout, and Chesrout. There is a likelihood that these are not Chenoweths. Aaron b: 1792, Isaac b: 1803, Joseph, Joseph B. and P.G. b: 1823 all lived in the same area and are probably related.

    Joseph b: Bef. 1869
    Information on Joseph's family comes from his grandson Harvey Merle Chenoweth. Both Joseph and his son Clarence died when quite young, and with them memory of the family's origins. Joseph is buried in Mt. View cemetery, Walla Walla, WA. His wife, Martha Anne Dyer, was born in Sullivan Co., TN. This Joseph is belived to be Joseph Edwin7 (NELSON HENRY6 JOSEPH5, NICHOLAS4, JOHN3, RICHARD2). Joseph married first Sarah Elizabeth Livesay but was soon divorced and the family of Martha Dyer is known to have been living in the Benton Co., AR at the same time.

    Joseph Wright b: January 11, 1885 Iowa
    Joseph Wright is known by his descendants. He married Lena Meyers, probably in Colorado. His age and place of birth are taken from a single listing of a Joseph in the 1910 Census in Sterling, Logan Co., CO where his first son was born in 1915. At the time Joseph was single and working in a sugar factory. He and Lena married sometime after the 1910 Census. In 1920 Lena is living with her parents, Joseph A. and Magdalena Myer Seward Co., NE. A Joseph Edward is the s/o Gilbert Allison & Missouri Wright based on his location and middle name, found in the SSA application of his son Roy. He appparently was missed in the 1900 Census. His parents are living in Sterling, Logan Co., CO in the 1910 Census. But Joseph is not with them in the 1900 Census when he was 14 years old. In the 1910 Census Missouri says she has had eight children and all of them are living. However in 1900 she says she had 7 children and only 5 are living. We have only 6 known children for this family, so this confirms the probability despite the absence of a son Joseph in the 1900 census of South Omaha, Douglas Co., Nebraska 1

    JOSHUA b: before 1788 m: Sarah ? [page 623] John (Joshua) died in 1802 in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. He wrote his will there on February 11, 1802, and it was proven in court on June 29, 1802. In it he mentioned his wife Sarah, and two children, Elizabeth and John. The will was witnessed by William Harbaugh.

    ADDED DETAIL: This record seems confusing with Joshua4 John3 Arthur2 Chenoweth who married Elnora Holmes inn 1796 and was also in Pennsylania at the time. However John's Joshua lived until. 1856. This is following Census record in 1800 in Fayette Co: page 532 line 8 - Chineth, Joshua with these ages---Free white males to age 10 -one; ages 16 to 26 -one male; ages 16 to 26 -one female. This is the only listing for any Chenoweth in the 1800 Census of Pensylvania. 1 Joshua Chenoweth b: Bef. 1780 d: 1802 in Fayette Co., PA

    ADDED DETAIL: In 1850 This family is living in Knox Co., OH transcribed as Cheuvront - This is not believed to be part of the Chenoweth family 1 Lemuel Chenoweth b: Abt. 1812 in Virginia d: Unknown

    Matilda J. b: August 30, 1825 in Muskingum Co., OH married October 07, 1840 in Muskingum Co., OH to Adam Linn. There were no early known male Chenoweths in Muskingum Co., OH. The Baxters of Sarah Chenoweth were there from the 1812 on, but the Chenoweth name is not found in the 1820 Census of this county. But it appears that some of the children of Edward(4) from Pennsylvania were in Muskingham Co. at some point. There was one son and 8 daughters. Of the 8 daughters, one was married bef 1820 and the other 7 appear in the 1820 census of Fayette Co. PA. The names are known of only 5. The son Ison is in Hocking Co., OH in 1850 with his family and his mother, Mary, and sister, Hannah. But Esther, another sister, married in Muskingham Co. in 1837 and Deliah married there in 1843. It is highly probably that Matilda is also one of the daughters of Edward. Much of the information on Matilda comes from one of her descendants, Donald E Long, of Ohio, who has been looking for her parents for many years.

    P.G. b: 1825 m: Nancy ? [page 626] Enumerated in the 1850 Census of the 27th District in Jackson County, Virginia, was P.G. Chenoweth, age 25, a farmer, and his wife, Nancy, age 19, born in Virginia. No Children listed.

    ADDED DETAIL: In the 1850 Census the name was spelled Chenrout, Chesenout, Chesmnout, Cheverout, and Chesrout. There is a likelihood that these are not Chenoweths. Aaron b: 1792, Isaac b: 1803, Joseph, Joseph B. and P.G. b: 1823 all lived in the same area and are probably related.



    Priscilla b: 1792 Maryland married Thomas Francies (also Francis) on April 17, 1810. She is said to be the daughter of a Richard Chenoweth and Elizabeth Burton. Though this Richard is unknown, he is likely a 3rd generation Chenoweth, maybe Richard, Jr. who has eluded detection for so long. This is a very large family body and part of a study of the Francies Family which still resides in the Baltimore area. Priscilla has ties to other Chenoweth lines as well. Her daughter, Elizabeth Ann Francies, married Benjamin Coe of Cubb Hill. Benjamin's sister Keziah Coe married an unknown Richard Chenoweth. Another daughter, Sarah Eliza Francies, married Cougill Gray. Their grandson, George Cougill Pearce, would marry Blanche Chenoweth a daughter of William H. Chenoweth7 John6 William5 Richard4 John3 Richard2.

    WILLIAM J. b: 1862 [page 635] Born January 29, 1862 in Baltimore, Maryland, died July 4, 1927 at the National Military Home in Elizabeth City, Virginia. William did not marry.

    William lived in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky before he enlisted on May 6, 1898 to serve in the Spanish-American War. He was enrolled at Lexington, Kentucky as a private in Company M of the 2nd Kentucky Volunteer Infantry Regiment. At the time of his enlistment he was a traveling salesman and his description was given as being 36 years old, 5'- 43/4" tall, dark complexion, dark hair, and brown eyes.

    On August 25, 1898 at Chickamunga Park, he was taking a barrel of drinking water off a wagon when it slipped in his grip causing him to suffer a rupture. This resulted in him being kept from duty for several days, then after that he returned to duty, apparently well. About two years after he was discharged at Lexington, Kentucky on October 31, 1989 with the rank of Sergeant, the injury returned, requiring him to receive treatment at Soldier's Home Hospitals in 1900, 1904, 1908 and again in 1914.

    William applied for and received a pension based on his military service and his injury related disability.
