The fourth week of the 52 Ancestors Challenge brings us to Joel John Chaudoin. He was my 2nd great grand uncle.
He is the brother of Amanda Metcalf Chaudoin, who was my 2nd great grandmother. They were two of the fourteen children of Thomas Guthrie Chaudoin and his wife Martha Anna Pennick. Amanda was the mother of Thomas Lewis Coakley, who was the father of Georgia Mary Coakley, who was the mother of my father, Henry Burl Stevens Jr.
Joel John Coakley was born 26 January 1825 probably in Green County Kentucky. I know very little about him except that was the fourth child and third son and that he died in Ozark Missouri in 1901.
