Tom, I found just a little for you, but her maiden name was noted by the Doctor as Chaney. This is probably an error on his part, or a mistranscription by someone reading old documents for the web. There were Chaneys that we have never found any connections to the Chanceys ect.
I am going to try a paste of the info here that, if it works with the spaces I included that keeps every detail inorder, but some BBs do not work with spaces in the text, and I cannot get back in to edit the original. If it dosn't make sence to you, or you have any diffuculty figuring out what is supposed to be where, I will e-mail it to you. (I put some dashes in the spaces, maybe that will keep the info in order.)
Looks like John was from Ireland and they had 11 children with the birth of Alfonzo Mines.
