Here is the stumbling block I have been up against for years: The identity of the father of Robert "Bob" and Hezekiah Chaney is unverified although there is some indication that his name was either William or Robert D. Chaney.
Information as I currently have it: Robert D. Chaney (Francis, Francis, Francis Cheney, Thomas, Robert Cheyny) was born in Overton, Haywood County, Tennessee, United States CA 1810. Robert died BEF 1860 in Missouri, United States.
He married Sarah A. BEF 1825. Sarah was born in North Carolina, United States CA 1795. Sarah died AFT 1860 in Arkansas, United States. The identity of the father of Robert "Bob" and Hezekiah Chaney is unverified although there is some indication that his name was either William or Robert D. Chaney. The 1860 census of Carroll County, Arkansas, records the household of Hezekiah, age 21. Included are his wife, Frances Chaney, age 16, and two other individuals: Sarah Chaney, age 65, born in North Carolina, and Nenviah (sic) Chaney, age 18. This would have been shortly after Hezekiah, "Kye", married Frances. It seems probable that Sarah is his mother and Nenviah (probably an attempt to record Ninevah) is his brother known as "Bud" who died in 1863. A story passed down in the family of Robert "Bob" Chaney, recounted by his grand-daughter, Reecie Stroud Martin, tells how Bud "was killed during the Civil War. To escape fighting on either side he hid out in a cave. On coming out for food, he was ambushed by bushwackers. The women buried his remains in the Rule Cemetery, Rule, Arkansas."
Robert E. "Bob" Chaney, son of Robert D. Chaney and Sarah A. (unrecorded). Born circa 1829, in Haywood County, Tennessee. Died 26 Mar 1891, in Carroll County, Arkansas. Burial 1891, in Rule, Carroll County, Arkansas. Probate of Estate 19 Apr 1893, in Carroll County, Arkansas .
Robert D. Chaney and Sarah A. had the following children:
11 i. Hosea Chaney was born on (birth date unknown).
12 ii. Jane Chaney was born on (birth date unknown). She married Bill Cross. It is unverified that Jane Chaney was the daughter of Robert and Sarah.
+ 13 iii. Robert E. Chaney was born CA 1825.
+ 14 iv. Hezekiah Chaney was born December 25, 1835.
15 v. Ninevah Chaney was born CA 1842.
Does anyone recognize any of this? with better info
