Re: Henry Thomas CHEVIS, 1777-1843, VA>KY
In case you do not know: Henry's son John M. is abstracted in the RootsWeb 1850 Federal Census Index as John M. Cheris.Which is understandable because v and r could look alike.
Do you have any copies of wills for either Henry or John M.?What was their business?Where exactly was their property located?
My connection is that my husband may have descended from enslaved people owned by this family, namely Samuel Chevis of Head Quarters, Nicholas Co., KY born 1848 (from 1880 Federal Census).
Many thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
