Charles Downman Chinn was the son of Rawleigh Chinn and Margaret Downman (nee Ball.) Rawleigh and Margaret were never married. Rawleigh was married and probably divorced from Esther Ball by whom he had legitimate children. In his will, Rawleigh refers to his three sons by Margaret as his "godchildren." She, in her will, refers to them as Chinns.
Charles was born October 18, 1723 in Fauquier, Virginia and died there on February 15, 1788. He was my great-great-great-great-great grandfather!
