John Chalfant Philadelphia

I am looking for information on the ancestors of a John Chalfant (b. 1862, d. 1955 approx. dates). He was first married to a woman named Julia Roney but then divorced (or walked out) and was remarried to an unknown woman. John Chalfant and Julia Roney had 3 children Wayne Walborn Chalfant (b. 23 Feb 1895, d. 19 Mar 1970), Alan Chalfant and Raymond Chalfant. Both Alan and Raymond were bachelors and had no children. Wayne married Bernice Josephine Knott on 25 Oct 1915 in Philadelphia. They had 3 children Lincoln Raymond, Richard Alan and Dorothy Mildred.

The family story goes that when Wayne Walborn Chalfant was about 15 years old (maybe around 1910), his father, John Chalfant, left his mother, Julia (Roney) Chalfant, and Wayne then ran away from home and disowned the family, never getting back in touch with them. This is where my trial ends.

John Chalfant is my great-great-grandfather. Can anyone account for him in their family tree? Please email me with any information that you think might be helpful at:
