Thanks so very much for posting this great old picture. William P. Chaney was a gg/g-son of my gggg/g-father Jacob Chaney (1715-1801). If others from the Pittsylvania County area have old family pictures they could post, I think it would be a wonderful thing.
I'm adding a (JPG) picture of the old homeplace and family of Henry Watson Chaney, Southerlin. I don't have the names, but thought this looked like a Currier & Ives setting. Henry Watson Chaney was a g/g-son of Jacob Chaney, and was sent to me by one of his descendants. Henry Watson Chaney was a Confederate soldier in the Civil War.
