The 1860 Census of Liberty Township, Wood County, has an entry for the family of ASA CHANEY.I believe this is the same ASA/AZA CHANEY/CHENEY (or other variants) who left Allegany County, Maryland with his wife Elizabeth Moore, after 1830.May have temporarily settled in Perry Co., where Elizabeth died.In 1860 Asa is shown with a second wife and children from both marriages.
Asa is believed to have died in the mid-1860's.Elizabeth is shown alone in the 1870 census, in neighboring Hancock County, with children from 1860 census and son John A, born 1861.
I am having a hard time finding any information on this family.Asa apparently did not keep in touch with his siblings in Maryland, where he is described in the petition of a 1900 lawsuit settling his father's estate as "Asa Chaney and the unknown heirs of Asa Chaney".His brother Jasper Cheney's family, of Fairfield Co., OH is fully listed in this compliant.
Would appreciate any information anyone may have on this family, to include possible death record, cemetery record, guardianship of infant children, etc., etc.
Thank you for reading my query, and for any help you may be able to offer.
