  1. 2.  Charles Garrett "Chas" JanewayCharles Garrett "Chas" Janeway Descendancy chart to this point (1.Benjamin1) was born on 19 Jan 1814 in Strawberry Plains, Jefferson, Tennessee; died on 11 Feb 1896 in Kellogg, Jasper, Iowa; was buried in Center Friends Cemetery, Jasper County, Iowa.

    Notes:

    According to "A Look Back" (citation details below), he and his wife moved to Iowa from Jefferson County, Tennessee in 1857 because of their opposition to slavery. They first settled in Hammer's Grove north of Amboy, and later in Kellogg. This is 100% consonant with everything we know about everyone in their kinship network. They hated slavery, and as the Civil War approached, they left for places where owning human beings wasn't considered cool. How about that.

    But! According to an unsourced document on ancestry.com, while his wife was a Quaker, he was a Baptist, and the reason they moved to Iowa was "to provide education opportunities for their children [at] Penn College at Oskaloosa, Iowa." Yeah sure.

    In fact, Charles Janeway regularly appears in the records of Iowa's Center Monthly Meeting of the Society of Friends, and his obituary in the Quaker newspaper The American Friend (citation details below) specifically names him as "a member of Center Monthly Meeting." We suspect someone has a problem with their ancestor or relative having been a sincere abolitionist.

    "He is a Republican in politics. Owns 190 acres of land, valued at $50 per acre." [History of Jasper County, Iowa, 1878, citation details below]
