I'm also descended from William Chain, and his wife Margaret (Peggy, last name unknown), through his son John who married Isabell (last name unknown); James Chain, who married Margery Nicholson; Robert Chain, who married Mary Dehart Boone, daughter of John Boone and Margaret "Peggy" Cooper; Robert Nelson Chain, who married Mary Frances Moore; Marion Dennis Chain, who married Gladys McDonald. Their son, Marion Dennis Chain, Jr, was my father.

I believe it was John Chain who went with Daniel Boone to what is now the Kentucky/Ohio area. There's a Boone family cemetery at Ginger Ridge, Adams County, Ohio. You can view the remaining names on tombstones there via the internet just by pulling up the name of the cemetery. You may find it interesting that there are more Chains than Boones listed.

I'm sure that we're all related. You might want to look at the Pennsylvania Archives copies of Revolutionary War pay cards. There are several Chains listed. You can find it at www.digitalarchives.state.pa.us/archive/asp.

You might also be interested in the list of burials at the Boone Family Cemetery at Ginger Ridge, Adams Co., Ohio:
