Yes I know of Julia Chinnis. Her mother, Florah mentions her in a letter to her son, Hamilton. She was 6 months old in the 1850 census.
Benjamin Chinnis 52 M Farmer
brothers of Benjamin were
Michael 51 M Farmer
Rebecca 37 F
Mary 16 F
Daniel Chinnis 40 M Farmer
These three sons were the sons of Benjamin Chinnis who is in the 1800 census. His wife is unknown. His son Benjamin married Florah Matthews the daughter of Hugh Matthews. It was thought that she was a Hamilton but Florah is mentioned as the daughter of Hugh Matthews in his will. Maybe her mother was a Hamilton. Julia's brothers Hamilton and John settled in South Carolina. In Colleton which later became part of Charleston County. My mother descended from Hamilton James Chinnis. I've always wondered who Julia married and now I know!
