CHANEY family in Adams County, MS
Posted by: Carolyn Cloud Stanley Date: May 28, 2000 at 20:53:19
  of 232

I am researching the CHANEY family - most particularly my ancestor William and his brother Bailey who settled for a time on/near Cole's Creek in either 1780 or 1790 or 1795 (varying dates from various sources). (Later a nephew of these two men moved on to Rapides Parish, LA where he founded the town of Cheneyville in 1811.)

I would like to correspond (via e-mail) with anyone who is interested in the history of this family. One of the most interesting is BAILEY CHANEY, one of the first - if not THE first - Baptist ministers in MS. He and his brother William were definitely in Adams County before 1800.

Thanks for any help anyone has on this search.
