    • probably not Chauncey but interesting

      from Geneaology of Garrit Storm, born March 25th 1778.
      I was born at Hopewell, Dutchhess County, State of New York, on the 25th of March, 1778, and am the son of Thomas Storm the eldest son of my grandfather Garrit Storm, after whom I was named. My father married Elisabeth Graham the daughter of a Presbyterian clergyman , who was settled and preached in the town of Fishkill. By her he had ten childred: of whom, at the time I commence this
      narrative (in 1847) only three survive vis my sister Elizabeth Manning, widow of James Manning, my brother Stephen and myself.
      My mother's father, the Reverend Chauncey Graham, hdd seven children by his first wife, viz: Stephen, Theodorus, Van Wyck, John C., Chauncy, Elizabeth (my mother), Abby and Sally.

      Stephen moved to and married in Virginia. It was understood that he got some fortune by his wife. It is not known if he left a family-- everything in regard to him is a perfect blank.

      Theodorus Van Wyck married Magdalena Ten Broeck, a daughter of John Ten Broeck, and by her had six children, viz: John T.F., who has been dead many years; Jane Marie, the wife of my brother Stephen: Elizabeth, wife of Philip Hart: Theodore, in Mobile: Sarah Ann, wife of Doctor Platt Williams: and Van Wyck, in New York.

      John C. married a Miss Foster of Newburgh: he died leaving an impoverished family. Their history is unknown to me.

      Chauncy was educated for a Physician and settled in North Carolina where he married. That he left children is known to me, as two young men, his sons, were introduced to me by my father aboaut twenty years ago. I am now entirely ignornant of their history.

      Abby married a man of the name of Storm, who resided in Saratoga County. He proved to be a miserable, poor, lazy fellow and was always in deep poverty. They are dead, and their descendants, if they left any, are to me unknown.

      Sally married Doctor Boyd and died a few years since leaving quite a family. The doctor is still alive and in practice.

      After the death of the Rev. Chauncey Graham's first wife, he married again: had issue one son, Daniel, who was like his two half brothers brought uu to practice of medicine. He was of my own age, and when a young man, moved still further South to practice his profession. While there he had a blundebuss snapped at his breast for his attention to another man's wife. He died many years ago and it is believed unmarried.

      The widow of the Rev. Chauncey Graham, who was step mother to my mother, married General Ellison, a man of substance and consideration in Orange County. I went to see him in the year 1798 at her residence about three miles from Goshen and spent the night at her house. She was a fine, open-hearted, fresh, jolly and fat old lady. She has been dead many years. This closes the historyd on the maternal side.
