Thanks for the swift response! and the info. Yes, please send me what you have. I can take a GEDCOM or just email.

My grandmother was trying to get into the DAR thru her father's line [I think she was doing this because her mother-in-law was in the DAR!] and her notes may well be from a DAR member thru John & Nathaniel Chauncey.

The only other clue I have to a New England connection is my great grandmother's autograph book. In it are several pages of 'calling cards'; on one 'card' is written [in his hand] William A Chauncey Boston Mass.

My grandmother must have known where her father came from [she gave his birth as c1840 Harpers Ferry where there are Chancys in the cemetery] and was trying to establish the connection between her father and John & Abigail Chauncey. And, I would assume she knew the names of her Chauncey grandparents.

The name was spelled Chancey/Chancy as well as Chauncey in the Washington DC obits I have from the late 1800s.

There was a Chauncey/Chancy WV [spelled both ways] in Logan Co, site of the Middle Fork [Coal] Mining Company.

I deeply regret being witless as a teenager when my great uncle Ed Chauncey visted; I think he knew everything.
