ARTHUR(3) OF KENTUCKY1753-1829

Arthur was last son of John Chenoweth and Mary Smith. For years he has been misplaced in the Chenoweth histories starting with Cora Hiatt in 1925. A fuller explanation of this confusion is found on the website background and disputes page.

He was born in Virginia and married, at the age of 21, Elspa Lawrence. He and Elspa started their family in Hampshire County, Virginia where they are found in a 1783 Census conducted by Levi Ashbrook, Arthur's brother-in-law. Shortly thereafter Arthur moved to Jefferson County, Kentucky where he and Elspa completed their family of 12 known children. Here Arthur is known to have administered the will of his sister, Elizabeth, and his daughter Rachel would marry the son of his nephew, William. In the tax rolls of 1789 and 1800 Arthur lived on Floyd's Creek located in Jefferson Co. Somewhere after 1823, Arthur and Elspa moved again, for the final time, to Bartholomew County, Indiana. Bartholomew had formed in 1821, when Indiana lands were made available. This available land was probably the attraction that drew these families there. Here Arthur lived to the old age of 89, dying just before the 1830 Census. It is believed that Elspa died the same year. Arthur left a will there naming all his children. Arthur had a Bible which was passed down to his son John. John inturn passed the Bible to Lewis Rose who passed it to Mathias Rose who passed it to William Lewis (page 84, Hiatt). 'Cy', Mathias Rose II, included a page copy in his family study from Montana.
