I am a descendant of Samuel Whitney (circa 1615-1674) who came from England to the Bermuda Islands in the 1630's. His grandson Joshua later immigrated to Isle Of Wright, Virginia.
There are three principle immigrants who came to the United States in the 1600's
Each of the following have distinct y-dna marker differences.
John Whitney - Watertown, Massachusetts Henry Whitney - Long Island, New York Samuel Whitney - The Bermuda Islands
I, and my genetic cousin Tara have co-authored The Whitney Newsletter. The Whitney newsletter is intended to reach Whitney families in the United States. I want to connect every Whitney to their rightful immigrant.
Issue one was sent out this month 11/2011. If you know of any Whitney families or their lineages please contact me. Take into consideration that I have studied countless Whitney lines. Do not trust everything you see on ancestry.com- 50% (or more) of what you find about Whitney's is wrong, or absolutely provides no clues to the present for establishing contact with disconnected Whitney lines.
The date of birth listed is for a different Richard Easley. It belongs to Richard Easley, son of Daniel and Edith (Anderson) Easley, who was born in Halifax Co., VA, and settled in Fulton Co., IL. That Richard Easley married Richard Valentine. The mother, Edith Anderson, was from a Quaker family. Daniel Easley freed his slaves and took them to Harrison Co., OH. I have a lot of accumulated data on that different branch of the Easley family.

RE: Hobson To answer your question truthfully- I don't know! In this case I assume "Chass" would be referring to his given name Chasten. With my limited search I was unable to find out anything about the son; we always wonder "what happened" when someone so young dies. There are many more questions than answers although sometimes an obit will give you some insight. Thanks for the link!
