ABSOLOM(3) ca 1747-ca1823

In the Chenoweth histories, Absolom is only a name known by the will of his father William(2). Born about 1747 in the Berkeley County area of Virginia, Absolom was one of 4 sons of William. He married Anne Hayes, the daughter of John Hays. The sister of Anne, Sinah, married Absolom's older brother, Joseph. John Hayes mentioned in his will that two of his daughters married Chenoweths, and though the marriage of Joseph to Sinah had long been known, it is only recently through work of Greg Wulker, in his contacts with researchers in the Hays family, that Absolom's marriage to Ann has surfaced. This finding is reinforced by the estate papers of Absolom found in Clark Co., OH, where his widow Anne signed in agreement to it's disposition. The only child mentioned in these estate papers is Nancy, who witnessed her mother's signature. So, though, Absolom's family is not certain, they are believed to be, for various reasons: William, Nancy, Eleanor and Jane

Absolom sold his land which on Mill Creek which he had received in part from his father, William in 1808. This land was adjacent to his brother, William, Jr. Both had divided the original lands that William(2) had bought on his arrival in Frederick Co., VA. By this time however the land was located in Berkeley Co. In 1809 he sold his personal possessions to James, his cousin's son. It appears that Absolom is found in Washington Co., PA in the 1810 Census. This was in route to Clarke Co., OH where he would settle. Absolom died about 1823 as the result of a fall from a horse when he was drunk. As a result his daughter Eleanor, and her daughter, Sarah, became involved in the temperance movement.

WILL: not found, but estate papers located in Clarke Co., OH.
