THEN WE HAVE

17. Elizabeth Cheney
Born: 1704 - 1707
Died: Before 1757
      Marriage 1: Dec 1726
22. William Renfro
Born: About 1702
Died: 1789


I do not know what to make of all this for sure. As you can see, Elizabeth (17), the child of Thomas Cheney (9) is said to have been born in 1715/6 which would have made her the daughter of Jane Swepstone(13). Jane(13) married Thomas(9) on 16 June 1711. The Elizabeth Cheney who married William Renfro was thought to have been born in 1704 - 1707. I obtained most of this information from the internet and do not know where all the dates came from. If Elizabeth was born about 1704-1707, then the marriage date for Jane and Thomas is wrong (but their birth dates could be correct). If Elizabeth was born in 1715/6 then she got married and started having children at a very young age. There appears to be a lot of records relating to the Chaney family in Middlesex Va. Also there appears to be several books published with the records of Christ Church in Middlesex which may help us (they should be available in the libraries of Middlesex).
     
Child of Thomas Cheney is:
  97 i.   Elizabeth Cheney, born 1704 in VA; died Bef. 1757 in Botecourt, VA; married William R. Renfro Dec 1726 in James City Co, VA.

      201. Mary Beam, born Abt. 1715; died Aft. 1779 in Owen Co, KY. She was the daughter of 402. Michael Beam and 403. Elisabeth ?????.

Sue, I have not seen the old deed books in Rowan County, but I have been told that Charles signed his name in German. I do know that the Hunter family witnessed deeds for German neighbors and their deeds were witnessed by the same German neighbors. It is obvious that several of his children married into German families. Jean
