Married name was Cheney. This daughter was not named in the will of Joseph Dodson dated 12 Apr 1772. In fact he stated four daughters, Rhoda, Elisabeth, Anne & Mary. Records indicate she was probably not deceased, or perhaps she doesn't belong in this family.

Letty DODSON and Ezekiel CHANEY were married.92 Ezekiel CHANEY31,93, son of Jacob CHANEY and Sarah MIDKIFF, was born before 1752 in Halifax County, Virginia.94 He died on 21 August 1815 at the age of 63 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.94

Sarah Midkiff may not have been his mother. His father may have had an earlier wife.

Ezekiel Chaney's deed show that he lived near several of his wife's brothers, Elias, Joshua & Caleb Dodson. Other children besides daughters Nancy and Polly, probably include Joseph, Ezekiel Jr, William, Thomas, Elizabeth, Rhoda, and Sally.
