@George,
Wasn't he one of those Saturday Night Live jokers?

@Setanta,
Yeah. He borrowed the name "Chevy" from a Washington DC suburb, Chevy Chase.
At the time of the War Between the States, that location had not yet been
incorporated as a village.

What ? ! ? ! ? That wasn't his real name ? ? ?

(I lived for several years in Northern Virginia, and narrowly escaped arrest in Chevy Chase on more than one occasion.)

Amazingly, he chose not to use Cornelius Crane Chase.
