  • 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.
