Chaney Family Roots

William Dean Chaney

Today, I woke up in a world that was just a little bit less.

My father, William Dean Chaney passed away on July 30, 2015. He was so many things to me. A father, a role model, a fellow Dallas Cowboys fan. Someone who I have looked up to for as long as I can remember. And now he is gone, leaving a void that can only be filled with memories.


Family History

After the passing of my grandmother, I inherited a host of old photographs, some dating from the late 1800's and it got me to wondering.

  • Who were the people in these photos?
  • What were their lives like?
  • What were their likes, dislikes, hopes, fears?
  • What kind of stories could they relate?
  • What did they accomplish?
