Hosea CHANEY Sr.
Go to page describing the search to identify him

He was born sometime between 1793 and 1796 in Wythe County, Virginia.  When his father died in 1813, Hosea was listed as an "infant" which meant that he was not yet 21 years old.  In March 1814, a piece of the property that he had inherited from his father was being sold, his guardian, Rev. John Stanger, acted for him since was still not of age.  Since he was to marry in 1817, he would have to have been of age by then.

In the 1880 census of his son, Robert, listed his father's state of birth as North Carolina  Another son, Hezekiah, gave the state as Tennessee. In 1900, the census record of Hezekiah listed the state to be Missouri.  It most likely that he was born in Wythe County, Virginia.  Hosea had evidently died before 1860 and time was taking its toll on the memory of his sons.

In the 1840 census of Newton County, Missouri, it was indicated that he was born c1800).1, 2, 3, 4

Marriage:       __ Feb 1817    Surry County, North Carolina.7, 8, 9
after     1852    No record of his death has been located.  His widow was living with his sons in Carroll County, Arkansas,
in 1860 and 1870.  He evidently was not living at that time.  A family tradition has the brothers moving to Central Texas just before 1850 but it is not known if he was with them.  None of the family has been located in the 1850 census.  A "Hosa" Chaney appeared on a Carroll County tax list but it is unclear if this was him or his son of the same name.10
