I haven't found a connection for the Chaney's to Thomas Jefferson, but I did find a connection for two Civil War Generals. Paulina Callaway married into the Chaney family who was 2nd cousin to General Jubal Early and 3rd cousin to General Hood from Texas. The Callaway's were very prominent pioneers, Lords in the Commonwealth of Virginia with huge land holdings and one Callaway that wasn't first born went west with the Boone family to settle Callaway, Mo. I do not have the info in front of me to tell you which Chaney Paulina married. I am researching the Chaney, Thompson and Newby line in Virginia.
