COPY OF LETTER.
Copy of a letter written by Mrs. Isabella A.
Holmes to Robert McChesney, then living at Eist
Orange. N. J.:
Cranberry, N. J., Dec. 6, 1S86.
Of ray grandfather's family there were seven
brothers and two sisters. My uncle Robert — your
great grandfather — was born in 1758, died 1835.
I presume your father has his record. Uncles,
John McChesney, Samuel McChesney, William
McChesney, James McChesney, Joseph McChesney
and Hugh McChesney. My father's sisters were
Isabel McChesney and Ellen McChesney. Isabel
married Nathan Lewis. One of her descendants.
D. C. Lewis, is living in this place. EHenore Mc-
Chesney married William Barricklo. Aunt Ellen
was born April 3, 1776. I have not the date of her
death or of Aunt Isabel's, but will try to obtain
them and will forward them, and will also try to
get the names, the maiden names, of all the un-
cles' wives and forward them to you. Uncle John
had five sons, two of them were physicians, Dr.
Charles G. and Dr. J. English. Dr. Charles G.
was born Dec. i, 1800; died 1861. He was Secre-
tary of the State of New Jersey for two terms.
Died at Trenton, N. J., buried here in Cranberry
in the Braiuard cemetery. The widow of Dr.
English is living in New Brunswick, and I snp-
pose has the family record. I understand there
are two of n y uncle Samuel's descendants, John
and Peter, living in Washington, D. C. A son of
my uncle Hugh William McChesney is living in
Freehold and may have family record. My uncle
James had no children. My uncle William left
here;' removed with his family to Ohio, don't
know where, before my recollection. One of his
descendants was an officer of the army in the late
COPY OF LETTER.
Copy of a letter which, in 1896, was in the pos-
session of Mrs. E. R. McChesney, 320 Washing-
ton avenue, Brooklyn, a descendant of the writer
of the letter:
My grandfather, Robert McChesney, came to
this country about the year 1732, and according
to my remembrance he came from a place called
Armah. My father, John McChesney, was at that
time about two years old. He died in March,
1775, leaving nine children, seven sons and two
daughters, all of whom are still living but one son
named John, who died last March. I am the
eldest, being in my seventy-second year. I also
remember when I was about perhaps seven years
old two elderly gentlemen named William Mc-
Chesney and Samuel McChesney came to see my
grandfather, and a son of one of them, I do not
know which, called Robert, came with them, and
they lived near Newark in New Jersey. Shortly
after my grandfather's death the said Robert came
to see our family, and I think not long after this
he moved somewhere above Albany, and as I have
been informed became wealthy and respectable.
The two elderly gentlemen above mentioned I
understood were own cousins of my grandfather.
I saw one of the sons named John perhaps about
sixteen years ago, who lived near Newark, and
who had several sons, one of whom was a major
in the late war and died of a wound received
therein. I also remember that about the year
1770 one John McChesney came from Ireland to
my father's, and shortly after his wife and several
children came there also. He died the same year
my father died. After his death the family moved
down into one of the lower counties in New Jer-
sey. One of his sons named William came to see
me the summer before last, and I believe is alive
yet. The above is a summary of what I know
respecting the families of the McChesneys. I
live in the village of Cranberry, in the county of
Middlesex, New Jersey, and should be happy to
see any of the name, let the relationship be ever
so distant. If the above relation, short as it is,
should be of any use to one of the name I shall be
June, 1829. Robert McChesney.
In compiling this brief sketch of the branch of
the McChesney family I have found many diffi-
culties in getting an interest arouse i amongst the
different descendants to respond to inquiries rela-
tive to their branch of the family. The descend-
ants of David McChesney and John McChesney
are complete and up to date.
