    Notes:

    "Born in Mason County, KY, Richard was a young boy when his parents crossed the Ohio River into the Scioto Valley, where they would settle in what would be Pike County. Richard served in the War of 1812 from Ohio. He married in Pike County, at the age of 31, Elizabeth C. 'Betsy' Smith. She was 16, the daughter of Edward Smith and Nancy Waller Horsey. They would have 7 known sons. No daughters have been attributed to this family. It is thought that Richard and Betsy moved with the rest of the family to Tippecanoe Co., IN about 1835, but unlike the rest of the family they quickly moved on to Grundy Co., MO, for they are found there in the 1840 Census. Betsy's Smith family also moved to this same area. The first five sons were born in Ohio, and the last two in Indiana. Richard and Betsy lived in Grundy County for the rest of their lives. He died in 1857 at the age of 67, and Betsy in 1879 at the age of 74. Richard is buried in the Gee's Creek cemetery in Jefferson Township, Grundy Co., MO. Richard's descendants can be found mainly in Missouri, Iowa and California." [Chenoweth Family site, citation details below]

    He appears in the 1830 census living in Pike County, Ohio, specifically in Pee Pee Township, which we mention because we're twelve.

    Richard married Elizabeth C. "Betsy" Smith on 1 Nov 1821 in Pike County, Ohio. Elizabeth (daughter of Edward Smith and Nancy Waller Horsey) was born on 13 Feb 1805 in Maryland; died in 1879 in Grundy County, Missouri; was buried in Gee's Creek Cemetery, Jefferson Township, Grundy, Missouri.

  4. 7.  Rebecca Robinson was born about 1803 in Virginia.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1809, Virginia

    Notes:

    She is living with her husband in the 1870 census, but in the 1880 census he is living with his widowed daughter Achsa, so presumably she died in between those years.

  1. 8.  Richard Chenoweth was born on 1 Apr 1758 in Frederick County, Virginia (son of Thomas Chenoweth and Mary Prickett); died on 28 Dec 1847 in Tippecanoe County, Indiana; was buried in Salem, Tippecanoe, Indiana.

    Notes:

    He is recorded as having been paid £2 6s 8d from the payroll of Capt. John Swan's Virginia militia company, as of 10 Jul 1780, from which it is said that he was a soldier in the Revolution.

    "Born in Frederick County, Virginia, the fourth son and seventh child of Thomas Chenoweth and Mary Prickett, Richard served in the Revolutionary War. Before 1786, in his late twenties, Richard married Martha Smith, parents unknown. This may have been in Allegany County, Maryland where his first children were born. Like several of his brothers, Richard then moved to Mason County, Kentucky and then again to Pike County Ohio, just prior to the turn of the century. Richard and Martha lived in this Ohio area for about 35 years, having three more children, for a total of 11, and raising them to adulthood. In the 1830, Richard, his wife and two sons and their families relocated to the Twelve Mile Prarrie, east of Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana. It was here that they both most likely died, as they are both buried there in the Salem cemetery." [Chenoweth Family site, citation details below]
