Hi Judy: So grateful! Thank you! I'm also very interested in the claim that Sarah Chaney and Manasseh were first cousins. That would connect the two branches. I'm assuming that one parent of each are siblings, and assume that Manasseh's mother Eleanor Chaney is sister to Sarah Chaney's father. (I had Sarah's parents as Thomas Chaney and Eunice Gleason. BUT on further digging, that couple is from Mass. And all the trees with Thomas and Eunice don't mention a daughter Sarah Chaney. And their daughter Sally didn't marry a Lyles or a Wilson.) So I'm wondering - who are Sarah Chaney's parents??????
Answering here or on my email is fine: firstname.lastname@example.org
Much appreciation, Linda
If anyone has questions about George Wilson and Sarah Chaney, I'm happy to exchange info. They had one son, Uriah Wilson. I have a lot on him. Our line went from Searcy and Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, to California in 1900.
I just read online about William Lyle (brother to Thomas Hilleary Lyles) who owned Want Water House near Washington, DC, and how William urged his son to duel with another man who had made apparently disparaging remarks on the dancing skills of a sister. His son was killed! What a story! The boy's mom must have been so upset!!!
