Harrison, we are not all knowing as you are. We simly mean to discuss our family history and the multiple connections between families that have become blurred through the centuries. I for one am very greatful for the information that has been shared and this knowledge has allowed me to learn more about my family. I have always had an interest in our complex origins and the historical context that influenced how our ancestors forged a living in a frontier. I have recently made the realization that our ancestors did not live in isolation but were connected to a larger and older FPOC community/communitites in the east. Thus, my reason for wanting to know more about John Cheves and his wife Rachel. Which brings me to a secondary question, Do you think that the last name, Chess was a misspelling of Cheves(Chavis) and is her last name Keys or Keese?
