Hugh, Hope you are well, it's been some time since we last exchanged.
I believe that Kenny Chesney is a member of the same Chesney family that I am, that being the Richard and Jane Young Chesney family of York Co. Pa., and Spartanburg Co. SC., of whom you already have knowledge of.Kenny's line descends from their son John's son John Chesney (md Sarah Skaggs) that is the well known Chesney patriarch of theGrainger and Union Co's, Tn Chesneys. There are at least a few Chesney genealogist that list John Chesney Sr. stated here as a member of the other Chesney family from SC.,(Robert Chesney), also which you already know. I believe I can supply goodproof that he was in fact the son of Richard and Jane Young Chesney that was crst.May 25, 1760, York County, Pennsylvania.
His, (Kenny's), line of ancestors,(such as I am aware of it), is ;
1 Richard Chesney b. ca 1730 md Jane Young
2 John Chesney b. ca May 26, 1760md Sarah ?
3 John Chesney b. December 05, 1794md Sarah Skaggs
4 Sterling Chesney b. ca 1818 md. Minerva Haynes
5 James Polk Chesneyb. March 1841md. Phoebe E. Yadon
6 John B. Chesney b. April 25, 1871 md. Hallie R. Hubbs
