Jeremiah Chaney (Jerry) is the first of this line that the author has been able to find. He was a Revolutionary soldier from Monongalia County, Virginia (now West Virginia). Jerry Chaney was in Captain Hammond's Company, Virginia Militia.
There was an Edmund Chaney from Monongalia County, Virginia, who also served under Captain Hammond. He was probably a brother of Jeremiah Chaney.
In James City County, Virginia, 27 October 1686 a Gilbert Chaney had a land grant. In Middlesex County, Virginia, 17 March 1720 is a will for Penelope Chaney with
A Jacob Chaney died in 1801 with will in Pittsylvania County, Va. He had 13 children. He may have been another brother of Jerry Chaney. In Bledsoe County, Tenn., is a land record for a Jacob Chaney. Leah Chaney Alldredge named a son Jacob Chaney.
From Thomas Owen's Dictionary of Alabama Biography is the following: Enoch Alldredge was a grandson of Nathan Alldredge, a Revolutionary War soldier and
Some time after the Revolution Jerry Chaney moved to East Tennessee. Probably Knox or Overton County. That is where Leah Chaney and her husband, Andrew Alldredge, moved from to Blount County, Ala., in 1816. Unfortunately the court
William V. Alldredge, grandson of Leah Chaney and Andrew Alldredge, who knew them both and had a remarkable memory and love for family history has been able to supply the names of some of the children of Jerry Chaney. These children are also given by Enoch Alldredge to his children who passed the same information on to the author.
Jerry Chaney and Mary Curby were married in Virginia. Moved to east Tennessee (Bledsoe County) after the Revolution. Had children:
1. Leah born 10 March 1784 (tombstone record in Blount County, Ala.) Married Andrew Alldredge in Overton or Knox County, Tenn., ca. 1806.
2. Rachel born ca. 1780 and married Sam Lowery in east Tennessee. They went to Alabama in 1816 with Andrew and Leah Alldredge.
3. Phoebe married Jerry Fulton and went to Alabama 1816 also.
4. Jerry Jr. born 1787 (1850 census Blount Co. , Ala. ). Married Phoebe Shambly. Jerry gives birth place in 1850 census as Virginia.
5. John. No data except that he lived in Blount County, Ala. for a while. May have died in War 1812 and left a young son John.
6. Jacob. Probably - as he was also in Bledsoe County, Tenn. and Leah Chaney Alldredge named a son Jacob Chaney. This Jacob Chaney must have died in Tennessee.
Leah Chaney Alldredge died in Blount County, Ala. , 4 February 1854. In the 1850 census an error was made in her birthplace. It was given as Tennessee. The census taker evidently put her down from Tennessee as her daughter, who was living with her, was born in Tennessee and so gave the data. In the 1880 census (which gives the place of birth of the person's parents) Mary Frances Alldredge and her sister, Elizabeth Smith, with whom she was living, gave as the birthplace of their mother Virginia. It obviously was as her brother who was born 5 years later gave as his birthplace Virginia. All the older members of the family in Blount County knew
The descendants of Leah Chaney and Andrew Alldredge are carried down to
Josiah S. and Athalanda (Furr) Cheyne
A french name meaning "of Oak Grove" or "Island of Oaks" originating from Le
Lambert Cheney arrived in Salem, Mass. in 1630, and Raduefus Cheyne (Chaney, Chenea and Cheayne) settled in Roxbury, Mass. in 1640.
Josiah S. Cheyne, born Jan. 22, 1858, about 4 miles from Dover, Pope Co. Ark., was the fourth child and oldest son of Hezekiah M.F. Cheyne (Oct. 30, 1818/Jan. 17, 1863) and Frances Ann Narcissa Tatum (Mar. 27, 1828/Mar. 14, 1877).
Hezekiah (Heze or Kiah) inherited land from his parents, Archibald Ray (Rhea) Cheyne (1786/1854) and Nancy Elizabeth Ball Cheyne (1787/1854).
Athalanda Furr born Oct. 19,1858 in Albemarle, NC, daughter of William E. (Josh) Furr (1831/1913) and Malinda Furr (1836/1871). Intermarriage of first and second cousins resulted in Athalanda's mother and father having the same surname, both direct descendents of Heinrich (Henry) Furr I and Russena Furr who came to America in 1758 from Germany. They settled in the lower part of Cabarrus Co., NC. Athalanda is the 6th generation and the 4th child of 13 brothers and sisters and 9 half-brothers and sisters.
The entire fmaily went to Dover, Ark. in 2 covered wagons in 1876 for richer farm land, but they stayed briefly, then returned to NC. However, Athalanda met Josiah Cheyne and they were married on Apr. 8,1877.
Three children were born in Dover, and in Nov. 1878, they sold the 80 acres of land he had inherited to Clabe Howell for $140. They continued to live there until 1833, (incorrect date) when they moved to Greenville, Tex., where his uncle, Felix Tatum, lived.
Their primary reason for moving was for more and better farm land and Josiah's 21 year old brother, Robert Scott Cheyne. Scott was associating with a gambler and getting in trouble so Josiah persuaded Scott to come with him to Tex. However, shortly after the move, Scott was kicked by a mule and died from the injury.
The family moved again, first to Bowie Co., then to Red River Co. to the Peters Prairie area. In 1885, they moved to a farm about 4 miles south of Annona. The land was grown up with heavy timber, but what had been cleared was good sandy soil.
The 4th child, Clarence Felix, born Nov. 9,1885 died May 16,1887, is buried in Garland
On Nov. 4, 1892, Josiah purchased this 205 acres and the house from J.A. and Sophia S. Coleman for $820., a cash payment of $220. down and 3 notes for $200. each at 5% interest.
In 1902 they built a new house in front of the old house. The yard had a wire fence to keep the chickens out of the many flowers Athalanda loved so much. Two large hydrangea plants on either side of the front steps were the envy of all who saw them because of the many pink and blue blooms. A large cape jasmin bush was another favorite. A big vegetable garden was south of the house and a grape vine grew along the fence. A large orchard east of the house grew plums, peaches, pears and apples for canning, and they sold what was not used by members of the family.
The entire family lived on the home place for several years. With sons and son-in- laws, they raised cotton, corn and some cattle.
Oscar C. and Lydia Myrtle(Bolch) Cheyne
Oscar C. Cheyne was born Nov. 1, 1888, and was the 5th child of Josiah S. and Athlanda Cheyne (see story), Oscar was the first of their children born in Texas to survive past
Homer Downing and Louise (Cheyne)Pace
Louise Cheyne was born Nov. 28, 1896, the ninth child of Josiah S. and Athalanda Cheyne (see story), and grew up on the farm south of Annona. She was the first of the Cheyne children to go to college and become a teacher.
She moved to west Tx. and married Homer Downing Pace on Oct. 2,1921, at Jayton, Tx. Homer (Dec. 17, 1893 to Oct. 5, 1946) and Louise moved to Dawson Co. in 1924, where he was a peace officer until his death.
They had one daughter, Edna Athena, born June 1, 1924.
Louise taught school over 40 years in Lamesa and Dawson Co. schools.
She visited home and Red River Co. regularly, and I had the pleasure of visiting her and Aunt Lonie Lee in 1959.
At the present time, she is living in a nursing home in Jayton, Tx.

C.B. (Charley) SIMPSON
Part of the Carrolls divided at Kirby and went to Texas. They became quite wealthy in the cotton industry there. The library was built with their money, and it bears the name "Carroll" for them . Several of the same family came on with the others to Montgomery County and settled along with them from the other side of Mount Ida to Joplin and around the Lihue Coffman place. Some bought land and settled on Williams Creek, and some at what is now the Charles Bates farm. There was a Carroll family cemetery there. I'm afraid it is long lost now,
He, Russell Simpson, and Betty Cockburn were married in the fall of 1865 after the war ended. Russell and Betty (Cockburn) Simpson's oldest son, William, was born in 1867. Charley (C.B.) was born in December, 1869. Their daughter, Laura, was born in 1872. The oldest son, William, died in 1872, and Russell, their father, died in 1874 and was buried in Montgomery County.
In about 1875, Betty, Russells widow; her mother Celia (Carroll) Cockburn; her three sons, Van, Clark, and Bates; and Betty's two children, Laura and Charlie, moved to Parker Co. Texas. They made their home together until 1882 when Betty died and was buried at Poolville, Texas.
After Betty's death, her two children went to live with Granny Celia. After two or three years without rain, in 1887 Granny Celia Cockburn, son Clark, daughter Sally (old maid), along with Betty's two children, C.B. (Charlie) and Laura moved to Arkansas. Clark rented land to farm from Mount Pope for a couple of years, and then traded three horses for one hundred twenty acres of land at Elnora and on Southfork, bottoms. He had to clear most of the upland and bottom land and built the house where Granny Celia died in about 1900.
Charley was a cattleman for two years. He made share crops and lived with John and Janie Bates. He lived with the C.T. Cockburns, Clark and Sally, for several years on "Cockburn Hill". In 1892 Charley and Rhoda Casey were married. To this union were born eight children: Betty, Vada, William (W.J.), Benjamin, Laura, Robert, Roy and Clark. They grew, played games, mostly at home outside with cousins and neighbors- anteover, jump the rope (when they could find a rope, or sometimes hey would use a vine for one).
What a big day when their ma's would make lye hominy,- or would kill hogs. Neighors would help one another. Charley always wanted better things. He was the first, in about 1905, to get a corn sheller. That saved a lot of blistered hands, and he was
In 1908 Charley and family went to South Texas and there he died in May, 1910. Rhoda as a widow with eight children to care for, and they came back to Arkansas.
Fancy Hill, now just a place on the map at the end of the paved part of State Highway 240, was once a community with a school, consolidated with Caddo Gap in 1927, a post office, abolished in the early 1920s, two stores, two water-powered gristmills,
The area was first settled in the early 1850's principally by people from Tennessee
Typical of these groups, the Cogburn's in their covered waqons crossed
The Civil War came to the people of Fancy Hill; most if not all, were sympathetic to
Many stories have "passed down the generations," two of which I shall relate here:
Lisa Porter nee Cogburn, notified that her husband had been killed, married a man named Fincher. Her husband returned; the second marraige was annuled and a son, by the second marraige used the name Porter, not Fincher. Fincher "went west."
Henry Cogburn aIso deserted to the North at first opportunity and while fighting in Missouri dreamed that a large flock of blue birds rose and flew south. Despite a local setbacks and morale at a low ebb Henry knew this was infallible proof that the North would win. His story quickly passed around the regiment, and he got to tell his story to the Colonel, and to his grandchildren in later years. His dream dramatically improved the morale of the entire regiment.
Henry Cogburn was a hard headed, stubborn man and it is proved in the story of his daughter's intended wedding to the man she loved. Rachel Cogburn's fiance and his slave visited the family in Arkansas and asked for Rachel's hand in marriage. His request was granted on the condition that he stay in Arkansas. Things were chaotic in Tennessee. Because he had a large farm and slaves in Tennessee, he had to return alone. Rachel nor her two sisters, Jane or Martha ever married. Denied the marriage to her true love and a plantation life in Tennessee she resolved to remain alone the rest of her life.
That Fancy Hill and surrounding area was pro-northern is evidenced by the report of the 7th Iowa Cavalry which raided Caddo Gap in 1863 which describes the suffering
Except that the virgin timber was cut, Fancy Hill remained unchanged until the "Great War." The people remained subsistence farmers. There was some mining, and a great deal of moonshining. Hundreds and hundreds of creeks and springs complicated search and destroy missions by the Revenue Service, not to mention that the local population was hostile.
Nor had the population changed much in character. The 1900 census report of Missouri Township shows the majority was born in Tennessee, with Georgia second. Illinois, Texas and Kentucky were also represented. Everyone is listed as farmers with the exception of one servant. Cogburn/Cockburn is the most common name, but Markham, Dunson, Hill, Porter and Waggoner are well represented.
From the 1920s until the mid 1950s the population left Fancy Hill until only a few

HENRY COGBURN'S FAMILY AND HISTORY
Henry Cogburn was born 1823 in South Carolina. His wife Emetine Margaret Johnston was also born in South Carolina.
Henry Cogburn was in the ---.4th Regt. Ark. Cavalary C.S.A. but deserted to the North at first opportunity and while fighting in Missouri dreamed that a large flock of blue birds rose and flew south. Despite setbacks and morale at a low ebb the North did win that war. Surprising that Henry would sympathize in that direction after the place he was born.
Fancy Hill is now just a place on the map at the end of the paved part of State Highway 240. This place was once a thriving little community with a school, a post office, two stores, two water-powered gristmills and some copper mines and manganese mines that operated from time to time.
Sons, Phillip Cogburn, Major Anderson Cogburn, Little George (Jerry Watson) Cogburn, France Cogburn, Andy Cogburn, Brett Cogburn, and Melvin Cogburn.
3 daughters, Rebecca Belle Cogburn married Noah "Grub" Beasley and
Martha Cogburn, Rachel and Jane Cogburn, who never married.
The Civil War came to the people of Fancy Hill; most of whom if not all were sympathetic to the North, "Mountain Federals". The South's recruiting methods
Rachel Cogburn, daughter of Henry Cogburn was supposed to marry a wealthy plantation owner from "back" home in the war torn area of Tennessee. Father Henry stated that Rachel could only marry him if he decided to stay in Arkansas. Therefore when the young man returned to his plantation, he returned alone. Rachel and two of her sisters never married. Martha Cogburn and Jane Cogburn.

John Franklin Cogburn had as colorful a life as anyone for his short lived life. He and four other of Montgomery County's upstanding citizens were charged with the murder of one J.D. Travels, a Revenue Agent who was terrioizing the "hill people" in 1888. He was beating up on the women trying to find their husbands stills, and the five charged men took it upon themselves to put an end to it. Although John Franklin's family swears of his innocence, he spent a year and a day in prison for the crime.
Charged with him were Fayette Cogburn, Nath Owensley, John Barnett and Charlie Johnston.
Circuit Court of August term 1888 charges John Franklin Cogburn. Newspaper of the Bear Mountain News, 1889 also professes the crime to John Franklin.
John Barnett helped Anna Belle with the children while John Franklin was in prison. I find later that John Barnett was married to a Cogburn girl.
