Hall, Broyles, McChesney, Sandlin


Samuel McChesney was born in 1704 in Armagh, Co. Monaghan, Ireland. He died . He married Isabella Riddel in 1730 in Co. Monaghan, Ireland.

The family emigrated from Ireland about 1764 and stayed around 1 year with cousin Robert Mc Chesney near Freehold, NJ, before settling at Brunswick, NY.

There is a difference from one report to another. The first says Co. Armagh, another says Co. Monaghan.
they are very close geographically and today they are divided by the international boundaries of Northern Ireland (Ulster), and the Irish Republic. I'm not sure which is correct.

Isabella Riddel was born in 1710 in Co. Monaghan, Ireland. She died . She married Samuel McChesney in 1730 in Co. Monaghan, Ireland.

There is some question in this connection, although I believe it's correct. Every thing I've found points to this relationship. Names of children and birth year among the clues. I'm out on a limb here but I'm adding this to my file and invite those with conflicting evidence to argue it.

Margaret Millard 1784 -1853 Brunswick NY
Posted by: Gene Stoddard Date: June 24, 2000

I am piecing fragments together in an attempt to find the parents of my ancestor
Margaret Millard.
The 1st information is from a Hayner record, showing Sarah Ann Hayner, b. 4/29/1810 d. 1/19/1853,
to be the daughter of Margaret Millard & Isaac Mc Chesney of Brunswick, NY. No dates
2nd - Mc Chesney information shows Isaac to have a wife named Margaret b. 1784 d.12/7/1853.
3rd - Internet sources find a Margaret Millard, daughter of Jonathan Millard and Mary Aiken.
This Margaret was b. Oct. 20, 1784 in Ulster, NY. - Gene Stoddard

Margaret Millard b. 1784 and Isaac Mc Chesney
Posted by: Gene Stoddard Date: October 21, 2001

I recently found some new information to add to my earlier posting (msg # 495). This comes from a record of the 1st Presby. church of Brunswick, NY. This is found on a Rensselaer County, NY, Rootsweb site. I have been to the grave site and it confirms the marriage and the dates of birth and death as recorded.

Isaac Mc Chesney & Margaret Millard married Aug. 23, 1801. Children in addition to the previously known Sarah b. 4/29, 1810 are William Rufus b. 9/2/1817, Caroline b. 3/29/1819, Abiathas/Abiathar Nelson b. 11/11/1822.

The list is incomplete as marriage records begin 1793 and birth records begin 1815/16.

The marriage date being so far before the birth of any known children, and the span of time between Sarah and William might suggest more children, but I don't have that information.

Margaret Millard b. Oct. 20, 1784, became an orphan at age 9, and little is known of her movements, it seems reasonable to suppose that she stayed with family members in the Brunswick or Pittstown area.

Walter McChesney [Parents] was born in 1728/1732 in Co. Monaghan, Ireland. He died in Rockbridge Co., Va see notes. He married Isabella (Pos.) Borden in Va.

I'm not at all certain but believe this could the same Walter Mc Chesney that died in Virginia before 1797. The names of his children might suggest a relationship to this family. Another record suggests that he died in Ireland. This may be an assumption because he didn't come with the family to NJ and later Brunswick, NY. His household included an Isabella living at the time of his death. Records I have seen would infer Isabella was his wife but could it have been his mother?

One report says Walter died in Ireland. Another suggests that he may have gone
to Virginia or So. Carolina. Names related to Walter of Virginia/ S.C. (Isabella, Mary , Walter Jr., Jane/Jean, and Samuel) suggest a possible tie to our Mc Chesney family. This Walter Mc Chesney was dead by 23 Nov. 1797.

DEATH: BEF. 23 NOV 1797

Was dead by 23 Nov. 1797 (Rock D-C, p511) Rock D = Rockbrige Co., VA deedbooks. A deed dated 3/31/1801 (Rock D-D, p 398) named his heirs as Isabella McChesney, widow, daughter Jane Young, daughter Mary Asher , son Walter McChesney, and named deceased son Samuel McChesney, who "departed this life leaving no issue". In Rev. War records there is Private Walter McChesney in roll box 76. In 1790 US Census records there is Walter McChesney in SC.

Isabella (Pos.) Borden was born in 1735. She died in 1787 in Rockbridge Co., Va. She married Walter McChesney in Va.

There is a deed dated 3/31/1801 in which Isabella McChesney along with William and Jane Young ( daughter of Walter and Isabella) sold their interest in a tract of land containing 100 acres on waters of WalkerCreek. The land had been conveyed to Walter McChesney by the executors of Benjamin Burden(Borden). Walter had left this land to his son Samuel with the right of dower to his wife, Isabella. Therefore Isabella may be a daughter of Benjamin Borden. (this is from Don Collins ,dcollins@bewellnet.com. 12/99)
