note: The area of the future state of West Virginia has been broken out separately. The name of the third generation line is given in brackets. The color of this name represents which 2nd generation line it belongs to, so each entry is assigned to its third generation branch.

This is my crude attempt at showing the family distribution in 1860 with the states colored with the various family branches settled in each. Descendants of John were in 16 states, Richard 8, Hannah 11, Arthur 18, William 8, Thomas 11 & Ruth 6.

Some 1,476 households and some 7,434 family members of the families of John Chenoweth and Mary Calvert found in the 1860 Census are depicted on this page, up a remarkable 46% over the 1850 households. The listings include 21 additional Chenoweth families of 12 seperate lines we believe are part of the family but lack proper identification. The reader is urged to read a fuller discusssion of the 1860 Census as found on the site Census page.

Caveat: The detail here is my transcription and subject to error and interpretation. Census records and the cursive used are often difficult to decipher. The quality of the transcript varies and can border on illegible. One should always examine the record itself to be sure.) The relationships given in each detail are my interpretation. Such relationships were not given in Census detail until 1880. State/County maps courtesy of cousin Warren Montgomery: Legend for all maps [Blue = Chenoweth name, Yellow: daughter lines only].
