Ms. Johnson, I believe this is your James Alton Chauncey. You must further investigate this information, but it appears to be who you are searching for. There were no Chaunceys in Wilkes County NC in 1900.

I have saved a copy of the actual 1900 census if you would like to have it.

1880 United States Census
James F CHANCY Self M Male W 40 NC Farmer NC NC
Margaret A CHANCY Wife M Female W 35 NC NC NC
Walter B CHANCY Son S Male W 13 NC Farm Labor NC NC
David L CHANCY Son S Male W 11 NC Farm Labor NC NC
Benj T CHANCY Son S Male W 6 NC NC NC
Nancy An CHANCY Dau S Female W 3 NC NC NC
Census Place Washington, Beaufort, North Carolina

1900 United States Census Washington Township, Beaufort County, NC
Dwelling number 186 Family number 186 census page# 19? A, sheet 10
Chauncey, James L? head, white male b. Apr 1840 age 60 married 33 years
-----"----- Margaret A. wife, white female b. Apr 1845 age 55 married 33 years 5 children born, 4 children living
-----"----- Benjamin T. son, white male b. Dec 1874 age 24 " married 3 years "
-----"----- Harriett E. *dau* white female b. Jan 1871 age 21 " married 3 years " 2 children born 2 children living
-----"----- Robert B. *son* white male b. Sept 1897 age 3 Single
-----"----- James A. *son* white male b. June 1899 age 11/12 Single
-----"----- David son white male b. Mar. 1870 age 30 Single

In the above census, Harriett E. Chauncey is listed as a "Daughter". She also shows married for 3 years, as does Benjamin T. Chauncey. "They" have 2 children, both living. I suggest that Robert B. and James A. Chauncey are sons of Benjamin T. and Harriet E. Chauncey.

James F or L (or both) was a son of Wally Chauncey and Mary Jane C. (MNU). Wally was a son of Samuel and Ann Bainer/Baynor Chauncey. Samuel was a son of Wally and Jemima Boutwell Chauncey. Wally was a son (undocumented I believe) of Charles Chauncey and Sarah Wally of Boston, MA. If ever documented, this Chauncey lineage will go back to England through Charles and Catherine Eyre Chauncey. 2nd. Pres. of Harvard U. Immigrated to America, arriving at Plymouth, Mass., in May, 1638
