My ggrandfather’s name was Levi Chowning, b. KY 1830; d. Lathrop MO, 1903. My grandfather,Willis, was born in MO in 1862 and died in Los Angeles CA in 1937.
Willis had 2 children: Dean Wooderson, b. MO 1892; d. L.A. CA 1941 and Joseph Kay, b. MO 1894, d. Hanford CA 1951.
I’m looking for information on Levi’s father, Robert B. Chowning. As far as I know he was born in VA between 1795 and 1810. Robert had 5 children:Cerrine, b.abt 1828, Levi b.6/22/1830, Medwell b. abt 1832, Maria b. abt 1834 , and William Herman b. abt 1837. I think that Robert’s father was Charles Chowning, b.VA abt 1732, d.KY abt 1832, but I have no back up on this connection.
If you have any info on Robert or Charles Chowning I would sure appreciate it if you would let me know. I have other info on different Chownings in MO and KY.

Do you have any information on Levi's father Robert Chowning or Levi's wifes madien name ? I believe that Levi's father was born in VA and moved to the area around Lexington KY in the 1820s.
Let me hear from you and we can exchange more info.

Benjamin Chowning was my maternal grandmother's father. His parents were James Chowning and Elizabeth Connell.

He married Elizabeth Weathers Quinn Sept. 27, 1859. She was very young (15?) and he was disinherited from a Ky. farm across the Ohio River from Cincinatti. He tried to farm in Indiana and MO and I believe not too successfully. I know that he had many children, but do not have all of them listed. Nell and Lena were the ones that I met and knew when I wasyoung.
I heard of Grace and Paul. My grandmother was Lelia Mabel Chowning whose mother died when she was 7 or 8 and she was left with relatives in Indiana to live, be there "helper", etc. She attended school through the 8th gradeat Edwardsville, IN (now a part of Georgetown PO) and she did visit Kansas City and her older sister Nell and worked there (a short time) in meatpacking. Then returned to Indiana and married Homer Davis Hogan, who was a postman on the railroad mail cars. He was killed in a train crash on Christmas day, 1904. My mother was 13 mo. old. Mabel sewed military uniforms to make a living and did well enough to own her home. Travel to and from her sisters was by the Southern railroad which ran Louisville to Kansas City. My grandmother would not let her father come and live off her when he was old (according to my Mother) as she felt that he had abandoned her as a child.
