Chess Family in Choctaw and/or Sumter County Alabama

I am trying to trace the surname Chess. Most of my family still lives in Pine Grove, AL. I have been able to determine that they came from the Oakchia Plantaion, but what I want to know is where the last name Chess came from. If anyone knows of Ida Mae Chess, please respond.

Also if anyone knows of the burial place that my elders call the "home place" (which I believe to be the slave cemetary on the Oakchia Plantation) that would be helpful too.

Lastly, Edna Mission A.M.E.Zion Church, does this ring out to anyone?
