| Hosea CHANEY.1,2
Jesse Gerald Chaney recalled that his father, Marvel Stone Chaney, mentioned Uncle "Hosie." Hosea appears in the 1860 census residing between Robert "Bob" and Hezekiah "Kye" Chaney. In this census, as well as the one for 1870, Bob's place of birth is recorded as Indiana as is the birthplace as Hosea's. Research by Jesse Gerald Chaney revealed that Hosea died of typhoid fever in a Union prison at Little Rock, Arkansas, during the Civil war.
In the 1852 tax list for Carroll Co., Arkansas, appears "Hosa" Chaney at Osage South in the southwest part of the county. This is the same area as John Dennis Chaney and James Chisom Chaney. It is uncertain but this is probably Hosea Chaney, brother of Robert, Hezekiah and Ninevah although it could well be their father, Hosea.
Hosea and Malinda appear to in the 1860 census of Carroll Co., Arkansas, in a house adjacent to Hezekiah and Robert Chaney. That census shows Frances J. Chaney in that household with Hosea as his daughter, age 7. Malinda is reported to be 20! Descendants of Hosea and Malinda Tomlinson report that they had three sons and a daughter named Fannie by a previous marriage. After Hosea's death, Malinda moved to Madison County, Arkansas, then to Missouri, where she remarried.
He served in the Army of the Confederate States of America. He died of typhoid fever at the United States Prisoner of War hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas. His name was recorded as Hoseah Chaney.
Birth: circa 1830 Indiana.3
She is not listed in the 1860 census but her existence is implied by the presence of a daughter who could not be from the marriage to the wife in that census who would not be old enough. Descendants of children of Hosea and Malinda mention that they had a half-sister named Frances J.13
