Welcome To My Family Pages
Hi, my name is Danny Nelson Chancellor and these pages are about myself and my extended family. The Chancellor family name is but one of thousands that have come together to make the unique human being known as me. I will attempt to share here what I know of my personal family tree, and in doing so, hope to make contact with others who share the same interest in family. These pages are a work in progress and I will be adding information, so please stop in from time to time. If you would like to share information with me, or have questions concerning my research, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOLDENVILLE CEMETERY INDEX
I also keep myself busy by volunteering for Findagrave. I recently completed a census of Holdenville Cemetery in Hughes County, Oklahoma and added the grave markers to www.findagrave.com. There are currently 9,715 names in the database I constructed of the cemetery. To go to my Holdenville Cemetery Index click here.
HUGHES COUNTY, OKLAHOMA MARRIAGE INDEX
I am currently working on a database of the Hughes County, Oklahoma Marriage Index in the Hughes County Courthouse. The Index currently consists of Grooms letters A-W. I will continue to add to the database as I have time. I have also now added a Bride index to the site for all the Grooms listed. To see this project click on this link-Hughes County Marriage Index. If you would like a Marriage License look-up while I am working on this project, I would be happy to do so. Arrangements could be made to mail a copy or send a scan by email (no fees charged). Updated February 28, 2013. There are currently 15,446 marriages listed in the index.
I am a direct descendant of Captain John Chancellor, who came to America sometime prior to 1672. From being a soldier in the service of King Charles II in England to an indentured servant in America, his must have been an exciting life. Read more by clicking here.
Below is a 5-generation chart going back to the early 1800s
The 5th generation of this chart and their parents were the movers of the family, migrating from the east coast of the United States across the continent to Oklahoma by the 2nd and 3rd generations. There were stops along the way in Ohio, Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas. They had to contend with the Civil War in the 1860s, and the building of railroads and opening of lands in the 1870s, 80s, and 90s.
