Re: surname:Chavis
In Response To: Re: surname:Chavis ()

Hi! I descended from a Jordan Chavis who was born approx. 1795-97 and died in 1873. He died in Mississippi and the census records show him being born in S.C. He was listed as a person of color or mullato in 1850 in Jefferson County, MS.

Our oral history states our Chavis were Indian. We believe he was married to a Eliza Jefferies but I have not proven it yet.

Their children were born in TN according to the census records. So they resided in TN prior to arriving in MS by 1850.

I have not been able to tie Jordan into any family as of yet. I have the names and birth dates of his children.

I was wondering if there is any tie in to your family.

Regards, Will
