Elizabeth, I may be of some assistance. I have Chichester, Peyton, Conway, Moncure, McCarty, Ball, Lee, Washington and some Chinn family info (i.e., Ann Chinn who married the immigrant Richard Chichester, Esq.)I am a Chichester descended from these families.

Hi Elizabeth and Richard,
I too am connected to the Chichesters. Am looking to fill in some holes. Trying to find info/documentation on James Henry Chichester, bc1795, son of Daniel McCarty and Elizabeth Grey. Can either of you shed any light?

Have you look at the book "Our Royal Ancestors" by Winona Stevens Jones (1971)? You will find the John Chynn decendancy in it.

I am seeking Chichester descendants whose origins are from Virginia to test DNA on Familytreedna.com in my Chichester Surname Project. So far we have a match with a Chidester whose family can be traced to James Chichester in New England area. We are looking for more to do comparisons with, specifically any from the Va branch who are KNOWN descendants of Richard McCarty Chichester branch and family. If you have documentation of this lineage that would be a bonus!
For more information contact me at kcoombs@yahoo.com

I have some things, my Conway line starts (or ends) at Eugene M. Conway (my maternal grandfather), f. Emil N Conway, f. Cabell Elias Conway, f. Frederick Rector, married Ellen Alvarez Chinn. Then my grandparents go up both Chinn and Conway. We have some personal items, photos, my aunt has stories passed down, we are avidly researching Conways, looking for people who have tested both Ydna from Conway lines, and ALSO autosomal so us ladies can confirm lineage. Take a peek at tree, contact with questions!
