Bio and Links
Bio Photo Jon lives in Kirkland, WA with his wife Deanna. His mother was Edna Louise Chenoweth, born to Harry Edward Chenoweth and Minnie Jane Holt. Harry had come out to the Seattle area from Pineville, MO about 1912. This in the line of the 3rd generation Thomas, son of John. Jon has been doing Chenoweth genealogy and hosting the Chenoweth website since 1996. He has attended all 7 national reunions (thru 2012) and made presentations at each of them. He graduated in 1966 from the University of Washington

I would be more than glad to manage any Chenoweth memorial since I basically know who all these people were. This fall (2012) I manage over 1,300 Chenoweth pages out of 4,700 plus memorials created so far. I have also identified nearly 900 married daughters. Though 90% of the family uses this spelling "Chenoweth", there are other variants like Chenowith, Chinouth, Chenowth, Chinowth, Chinworth, Chenworth, Chineworth as well as variants of Chennyworth and Channyworth. Chynoweth and Chinneth are not part of the family of John Chenoweth and Mary Calvert, who comprise over 90% of the present population of US Chenoweths. For more info please visit the Chenoweth website I created.

The pix is probably what I look like after a hard day of genealogy, a bit frazzled!

re: Chenowith memorial at Nevada State Hosp #3
Hello Jon,

I noticed your flowers/note on this memorial. I have transferred it to you for maintenance. If you do not want to keep it, please feel free to transfer it back to my account. Thank you!

Ann McCool Chenoweth
Hey Cousin John-

Do you know the burial place for Ann? She was still living after 1855 and was in Clinton Co. OH in 1850 with her sister.

I would like to find her final resting place :)

Lot's to catch up on- I will check out your site for any new info.

Henry and Arthur Chenoweth Clinton Co IN
Thank you so much for the excellent bio and information on Henry. I have added it to the memorial. These memorials are a work in progress that I just started a few days ago. I just posted a pic of the Civil War Memorial on Henry's memorial if you would like to see it. I will work on Arthur's next

Thanks again

After reading your webpage, I think I should transfer the memorials to you.

RE: Chenoweth
You're very welcome! When I read your profile, I figured it would make much more sense for you to have them and care for them.

That happens. I found her obituary and then posted the Memorial # for her parents. I figured you would Catch it. I'll add her correct parents. It does happen.

RE: Washington Park East cemetery
Edith is in the same cemetery. Memorial# 129181435. I just connected her to her spouse. And her parents. Give me a bit to get all the information added to her memorial. Hope this helps.
