********************************************************************
A. C. Ches(t)nut, farmer, section 28, postoffice Arnoldsville, was born in Laurel County, Kentucky, May 12, 1820. His opportunities for acquiring an education were extremely limited and, such as they were, he walked two miles to a log school house to secure them. In 1840, he emigrated to Daviess County, Missouri, where he lived till 1848, when he moved to Buchanan County.
November 15, 1838, he married Evaline Jones, by whom he had ten children: John T., Abraham, William, Mary, Maria, Hettie, Fannie, George, Samuel and Evan (Iven).
Abraham* enlisted in the Confederate Army under Colonel Gates. He rose to the rank of lieutenant and was killed by the accidental discharge of his own gun.
Mr. Ches(t)nut's first wife died in January, 1866 and in 1868, he married Sarah Anne Farrah*, by whom he has had three children, Charles, Lucy and Ella.
By his own industry he acquired the 60 acres of land he now owns.

NOTE: The 1881 History has his name spelled Chestnut, but in all other places, find it as Chesnut.
* The bio says Abraham enlisted in the Confederate Army, etc. and was killed by the accidental discharge of his own gun. Since Andrew died in 1880, I believe this refers to his son, Abraham.
* Sarah Anne Farrah's maiden name was Woodhouse, and she married first, John Ferril, so believe Farrah should be Ferril.
