Chason is my maiden name, and I have been seeking the first Chasons to arrive in America for years. My line has been traced back to eastern NC in the mid-1700's. The names are Joseph, John and James Chason. My branch moved to Spanish Florida in 1806.
Please tell me where your Parthenia and her family came from, and where they settled upon their arrival here.
I have seen the listing of Chason in the Hall of Names website that gives Navarre, Spain as the first place the name is found.
I hope we can help each other unravel what has been the mystery of the first Chasons to arrive on American soil.
Thanks for your post!
