Birth: Apr. 10, 1833
Missouri, USA
Death: Jan. 25, 1918
Collin County
Texas, USA

I am in possession of a death certificate for Washington Chaney. The place of burial is listed as Forest Grove in McKinney. I have seen a copy of this same death certificate on Waldo Chaney of McKinney was the informant. Washington's father's name is listed as Moses Chaney.

I have seen other records stating this man's name is George Washington Chaney. I obtained the death certificate from other relatives in Collin County doing research trying to find Wesley Adams Chaney's father's name.

I HOPE this man is my ancestor, but have never been able to tie him to my Great Grandfather, Wesley Adams Chaney. I have researched Washington Chaney on many censuses:

A few sources in list Washington Chaney as the father of Wesley Adams Chaney, but I have never found proof of this in census or birth and death records. It is quite interesting that they both lived in Collin County Tx.

I would love to see some definitive proof if anyone can present it.
