Surnames: CHANEY, BENSON, HARDESTY, O'CONNER, FRY, MCGINNIS
RANDY; I can help a little maybe.JOSEPH CHANEY born in Anne Arundel Co.MD. 1736. His great-grandfather
(no first name given, but I suspect John) came from England with Lord Baltimore in 1632. He said his father was Joseph Chaney a farmer of moderate conditions. In 1758 Joseph married Elizabeth Benson
from England. They had two sons; Joseph and Thomas.
They had 5 daughters;Comfort, Ruth, Elizabeth, Sophia,Margaret and Nancy. I do not know the order of birth of these children. I know Joseph married
Elizabeth O'Conner in 1803 in Md. Thomas married Ann
Fry in 1817 in Coshocton Co. OHio. He died in 1845.
His widow, moved to DeHalb Co. Ind. Comfort Chaney
married Levi Fairall in Md. they walked carrying their neccessaties on the horses, into Ohio. Ruth Chaney married EDmond/Edward Hardesty dec.25, 1792 in A.A.Co,Md. Sophia Chaney married George Hardesty
nov.1, 1812 in Coshocton Co Ohio.I'am not sure who the other two girls married but I think one of them
married Samuel McGinnis. In 1810, Joseph and Elizabeth moved to Ohio,settling first in Know Co. and then a year later moving farther south into uskingum Co. The same year Coshocton Co, was formed,
splitting the farm into both Cosh. and Musk. Co's.
Young Joseph was on the Cosh. side and Old Joseph on the Musk.side. Their land was about 3 and1/2 miles
north of Frazeysburg, ohio. Elizabeth died at the age of 65 while milking. Joseph had been a minute man during the revolution and had fought at Brandywine, Monnouth and other smaller engagements. He was present at the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. He died in 1832 at the age of 96.
While many of his descendants have moved on, many have stayed, and the names Chaney and Hardesty are well represented in this area today. Loretta

In 1994 Eugene K Gibson write me about his John Gibson & Priscilla Hardesty line. We suspect my Joseph Hardesty is Priscilla's brother. Ruth G. Davis supplied a lot of his material on your line back in 1979.

Millie Uland ("Gone But Not Forgotten") in Greene County telling me (Joe Chamberlain) that Thomas Hardisty
was a Revolutionary War veteran DAR #322076. He enlisted 24 January 1776 1st Co. Matross Artillery MD. He
received a land grant in Webster and Posey Townships, Harrison County, IN, for his service under George Rogers
Clark. - From another If he were with George Rogers Clark in his expedition to Kaskaskia and Vincennes in 1779,
he would have been about 15 years old. The book "Early Indiana Trails and Surveys" (1919) by George R. Wilson,
which was reprinted is for sale by the Indiana Historical Society, has a discussion of Clark's Grant on pages 57-61.
The Virginia General Assemby in Acts dated October 3, 1779 and October 5, 1780, promised land bounties to
officers and soldiers of Virginia who served until the end of the Revolutionary War -- ranging from 15,000 acres
for a Major General to 200 acres for a Private. In October 1783 the Virginia General Assembly, authorizing a
survey of the lands granted the Illinois Regiment [i.e. Clark's] and establishment of a town [Clarksville] within
said grant. There were 1000 acres in the Clarksville Grant and 149,000 acres in the Main Grant. The entire Grant
is incorporated in what is current day Clark County. Harrison County is part of the Indian cessations negotiated by
Gov. W.H. Harrison at Vincennes in 1804 & 1805. It was surveyed and land there sold after Clark's Grant. If
Thomas HARDESTY secured land in Harrison County, it would been through the Land Office in Cincinnati.
Margaret R. Waters published a book on these sometime in the 1940s "Indiana Land Enties, Vol.1"

I could find no record of Thomas Hardisty receiving a Revolutionary War bounty land grant from any state. He is
not listed in Lloyd Bockstruck's index which includes lands awarded to the Virginia - Indiana Regiment headed by
George Rogers Clark. I think I told you earlier that I could find no record of his having served under Clark. There
still remains a possibility that his grant (if there was one) came from the federal government. I'll see what I can
find on that.

Thomas and Nancy had the following children:

20. Records of John Dean (Jack) Hardesty. "ELIZABETH HARDESTY 1803-1843 Elizabeth was born in Ann Arundel County, Maryland, April 18, 1803. On December 4, 1823, she married Joseph Slaughter and to them thirteen children were born. Among the earliest of Edmund's children to come to Ogle County, Illinois, was Elizabeth, her husband, Joseph, and family. They settled in Washington Grove, Lafayette Township, Section 4, in 1843. At the age of forty, Elizabeth died leaving thirteen children, the youngest one just one year old. She was buried at Chapel Hill Cemetery, Washington Grove, near the family home. Of her children, we know that John, the tenth child, often led the singing at Washington Grove Christian Church. He left the superintendency of the Sunday School there to become a captain in the Civil War. Thomas, the thirteenth child, was also a captain in the Union Army. William, the second son and Adin, the fifth son, operated a blacksmith shop in Rochelle, Illinois. Much of the information on the Slaughter family was obtained in 1958 from Mrs. Carrie McCay (Elizabeth's great granddaughter) of Winthrop, Iowa. Mrs. McCay wrote of Slaughter reunions held each year in Iowa as a number of Elizabeth's descendants now live in that state. Giving information on the Illinois Slaughters was Mrs. Ella Dutcher, Elizabeth's granddaughter. Mrs. Dutcher celebrated her 91st birthday in 1967.

21. Records of John Dean (Jack) Hardesty. "Sophia, the 6th child of Edmund Hardesty, was born July 6, 1806 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. When she was 5 years old, the family moved to Ohio where her father filed a claim for 160 acres in Washington Township, Coshocton County, Ohio. Practically no record has been kept of the early days in Ohio and very few tales of the early life have been passed on to later generations. One story which has been told concerned Sophia who had her eye on a handsome young man who had moved into the community. Rachel, Sophia's younger sister by 5 years, told Sophia that she would "do up" her ruffles for one year if Sophia would "catch" John. This arrangement apparently worked as Sophia Hardesty and John Cross were married in Coshocton County, Ohio, March 22, 1832. John Cross was born 17 May 1804 in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. He died 14 April, 1886. In the fall of 1853 Mr. and Mrs. John Cross and nine of their ten children, ranging in age from 2 to 19, started with ox team and covered wagon for, Illinois where five of Sophia's sisters and brothers had located. Edmund, the oldest son of John and Sophia, had moved to Pine Rock Township, Ogle County, Illinois the previous year. While the family was traveling west crossing Indiana, one son, Levi Perry, became seriously ill. Several days were spent in South Bend, Indiana trying to nurse the boy back to health but medicine was scarce and doctors not available. Levi Perry, age 11, died and was buried in South Bend. After his death on October 13, 1853, the family continued their journey and arrived in Lafayette Township, Ogle County, Illinois on October 21, 1853. John and his family settled on land adjoining Amy and Spencer Tilton who had arrived five years before. On their newly acquired farm the Cross family built a home, cleared the land and tilled the soil for more than 30 years. John died in 1886. Sophia continued to live at the homestead for the rest of her life. Belle Gibson, a granddaughter, remembered going from Chana with her father in a double seated buggy (surrey) to see Grandma Cross. "We always had fun there for there were plenty of cousins to play with". At the Ogle County Historical Museum in Oregon there is a coverlet donated by Belle Gibson which belonged to Sophia. This coverlet, with an eagle and star design, was woven in 1839 by David Lawson of Janesville, Ohio. For this coverlet, Sophia raised the sheep and sheared them, carded and spun the wool. Sophia Hardesty Cross died in 1900, age 93 years, 10 months and 25 days. Both John and Sophia are buried in Flagg Center Cemetery.

22. Records of John Dean (Jack) Hardesty. "Rachel was the seventh child of Edmund and Ruth Chaney Hardesty. Her parents came to Ohio from Anne Arundel County, Maryland, in 1811 and she was born in Bethlehem Township, Coshocton, Ohio, February 14, 1811 while her parents were camping for the night at White Woman's Rock. Rachel married Hamilton Cox on October 4,1832. There were eleven children of this marriage. Mrs. Grace Croy Speck, a great grand daughter of Rachel and Hamilton compiled a genealogy of the Cox family of Virginia and Ohio (1755-1955) which gives all of Rachel's known descendants. Our genealogy will list only her children and grandchildren - then refer t to the pages in Mrs. Speck's "Cox Family of Virginia and Ohio" for the rest of the family.

24. Records of John Dean (Jack) Hardesty. "Daniel Hardesty, the eighth child of Edmond and Ruth Hardesty, was born in Washington Township, Coshocton County, Ohio in 1812. He died February 13, 1895 at his home in Ogle County, Illinois. At the time of his birth, Washington Township was not much more than a small Indian settlement and was made up of military and government lands. We have no record of Dan's early life in Ohio. On December 25, 1836 he married Abigail Ferguson, who was one of the youngest of seven children. Her father was Rev. Ferguson, a Methodist minister. At some time prior to 1849, Rev. Ferguson came to Illinois and settled. It is thought on the same land that Daniel later acquired. Rev. Ferguson left with the 49'ers to search for gold and was never heard of by his family after that. His fate is unknown. In the spring of 1852, Daniel and his wife Abigail with their family of eight children emigrated to Illinois in a covered wagon. Hattie Hay, a granddaughter can recall several interesting things her grandmother had told her about the hardships of this trip and early pioneer life in Illinois. Evidently other families came with them at this time. Dan and Abigail settled on a farm in Lafayette Township, section 5, which was government land at this time. This farm is about seven miles west of Flagg Center. Daniel built a house on "Rag Street" the road to Ogle which is now Ashton. Later the road was changed to follow the section lines and this put Dan's house about 80 rods south of the road. He then built a new home which is on the present Flagg road. Dan and Abigail had three more children while living on this land. After his death his son Franklin owned and farmed it. When Franklin retired, his son, Fred, took over the farm. Fred remodeled the home Dan built. Fred sold the farm to his son, Robert, who is now operating it. Robert Hardesty, or Bob as he is more familiarly known, is 4th generation of Hardesty to have this land. For over a century, it has been Hardesty farm. We are told Dan was a huge and powerful man as were many of the Hardestys. It is said that when Dan took wheat to the mill to be ground he carried three sacks at a time, where as the average man carried only one. He always wore his coat and shirt open at the throat and never wore a hat. He was unmindful of the severe Illinois winters and weather did not bother him. Pictures of Dan show he was a giant of a man as were his sons. We are told he was a very religious man and never missed a prayer meeting or church service. He had two large cross dogs which most people feared and which were his constant companions, and obeyed him perfectly. He was a practical joker and because of this and his dogs, Dan has become a legend through the Washington Grove Area.

26. Records of John Dean (Jack) Hardesty. "AMY HARDESTY TILTON Amy, the 9th child of Edmund and the youngest child of Edmund and Ruth Hardesty, was born in Coshocton County, Ohio on April 10, 1816. Very little is known about her early life as no written record is available and the only information about her has been obtained from her descendants who can remember certain bits of conversation they have overheard. Marriage licenses issued in Coshocton County, Ohio show that Amy Hardesty married Spencer Lake Tilton, the 5th son of Richard Tilton, on April 13, 1845. Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Lake Tilton migrated from Ohio to Illinois, settling on Section 1, Lafayette Township, Ogle County, Illinois. It is assumed the trip was made by ox team as other members of the Hardesty family moving to Illinois used oxen to pull their wagons. It is also assumed the 80 acre farm was ob- tained from the government. Other members of the Hardesty family who left Ohio and settled in Lafayette Township were Amy's sisters Sophie, Elizabeth, Nancy and a brother Dan. Her sister, Harriet, settled across the road in Pine Rock Township. The Tilton farm is located on the Flagg Center blacktop, formerly known as Rag Street, about four miles west of Flagg Center. Their farm was owned and farmed by Tiltons and their descendants for nearly one hundred years. Mrs. Eva Beaman, a granddaughter of Spencer Tilton, has among her momentoes, a tax receipt for the year 1851 which shows the tax, state, county and town on this 80-acre farm amounted to $4.39. Nieces of Aunt Amy have Nieces of Aunt Amy have pleasant memories of her hospitality. One recalled her beautiful set of blue willow ware dishes, especially the sugar bowl, cream pitcher and large covered tureen which was used when company came. Mrs. Eva Beaman was given the gravy boat from this set. A niece, Mrs. Nora Shippee of Ashton, age 92, remembers Aunt Amy and described her this way: Aunt Amy was no midget but a heavyweight. She wore a large apron with patch pockets and did not stand to do any work that she could do sitting down. When a niece from the west (probably Iowa) came to visit relatives and was a dinner guest at Aunt Amy's and was eating with her fork, Aunt Amy said to her, "Drop that fork, your knife was made to eat with". Mrs. Shippee adds an old time rhyme about eating: "I eat my peas with honey I've done so all my life It makes the peas taste funnyBut it keeps them on my knife".(Author unknown) Amy Hardesty Tilton died in 1904, Spencer Lake Tilton died in 1913. Both are buried in Washington Grove Cemetery, Ogle County, Illinois.
