1. Title:   Grave stone

a. Note:   The spelling of this line has always been Chumlea; however, it is my belief that it was originally spelled Chumley/Chumbley/Chumleigh/Cholmondeley or some other variation. About 1834-35, John and Margaret moved from Knox County, Tennessee to Fountain County, Indiana, with their children William (and his family), Jane, Malinda, Margaret, Preston, and Rachel. In the 1850 and 1860 Fountain Co., Indiana censuses, John Chumlea lists his occupation as a gunsmith, and both John and Margaret are shown as born in VA. Covington (Indiana) Library provided an excerpt from a book (title unknown) page 413 Fountain and Warren Counties, Indiana, which states, "John Chumlea was one of the first settlers in that part of the country (referring to Fountain County) and was a gunsmith by trade, as well as a millwright." is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
