Re: Old Chaney Homestead and Burying Ground near Laurel Grove

Classification: Query
The Old Chaney Burying Ground is right on Reaves Mill Road. Also Eliza Chaney Rives parents were Willis Chaney and Paulina Callaway. Paulina and Willlis Chaney are buried beside a 2-story white house along Rives Mill Rd. I don't know who lives there now. Paulina was descended from Colonel William Callaway who had service in the French & Indian War. I am descended from William Callaway's son, Captain Charles Callaway, who had service in the Revolution. Charles Callaway married Judith Early and their son John Callaway married Anna Dodson in Halifax County, VA. Paulina Callaway who married Willis Chaney was the daughter of John and Anna Dodson Callaway. Jacob Chaney is supposed to be buried in the Old Chaney Burying Ground but the grave is unmarked. Another cemetery is off of Dr. Milam Rd in Laurel Rd. A pharmacist in Danville by the last of Milam might open the lane for you to see it. William Chaney who was the father of Willis mentioned above is in this cemetery and his tombstone was placed there by the VA as William Chaney served in the War of 1812. If you use Find a Grave you might find photos of some of there. I have Sciatica but when my pain is gone I will post some photos here.
