  The Chownings were a Welsh family that arrived in the colonies prior to the Revolutionary War. One record said she was born 1821. Mary Ann Chowning wrote of her childhood in a farm house in Kentucky, heated by many huge fireplaces. Her first memory was "when the stars fell, we all sat on the front porch and watched." Her family owned slaves but did not sell them, and she loved her black mammy and her little Malinda with whom Mary Ann played. (From the published memoirs of Alexander M. Scott) Lena Byrd Scofield (Letha "Letty" Scott's daughter), in a letter 5 June 1950, described her grandmother Mary Ann Chowning Miller: " I thought, too, of Grandmother when she came to our cottage in Brazil after a visit with Cousin Ben and Cousin Etta in Chicago. They had given her a bottle of eau de cologne - that, and her pile of black bordered handkerchiefs and her graciousness and lovely gentility, remain with me. She loved the beautiful and sewed a fine seam. She was of that old pattern of southern ladies. Also her fierce loyalty to John Miller. When I think of the pattern she set, the fear and admonition of the Lord which she taught her children, what would she think of philosophy, new thought, etc. The lines of the Bible was enough for her - that, and doing her work faithfully. It is a good pattern." [Br�derbund WFT European Origins Vol. E1, Ed. 1, Tree #0447, Date of Import: Dec 30, 2003]
