Family Group of
Zuritha Chaney Clark
(The material on this page is still being researched and should not be considered authoritative.)
Jesse Gerald Chaney recalled that his father, Marble Stone Chaney, told of visiting and/or living with "Aunt Jane" and her husband Bill “Uncle Bud” Cross. In the late 1880s, Marvel Stone Chaney and his brother Christopher Columbus Chaney reportedly went to stay with them in Oklahoma. Their father had remarried and they did not get along with their new step-mother. After a short time the brothers went to Texas. Marble settled in southern McLennan County, where other Chaney relatives had settled. Among them was his uncle Hezekiah “Kye” Chaney. Christopher eventually settled in Eastland County, Texas. It is now known that William M. Cross and his wife Sarah J. Clark lived in Carroll County, Arkansas, and later in Coryell County, Texas. Sarah J. Clark was the daughter of Zuritha Chaney who married Elisha Price Clark. This family appears in several census records in close proximity to the Four Brothers. Marvel Stone Chaney was born in 1868 while Sarah J. Clark was born in 1842. In this family, it was customary to refer to older cousins as "aunt" or "uncle."
She and her husband appear in the 1840 census of Newton County, Missouri, only a few entries from Hosea Chaney who was most likely her father.
