My mother was Ruth Marie Chapman.
I have been following the Chapman line east and have been everywhere to take pictures and dig through the local archives except Hampshire County VA where William bought his 268 acres on Little Capon creek just south of the Potomac in the 1770’s.
In a previous version of this website I think I saw a note about a Chapman infant who was cared for by two guardians who managed his property until he came of age. Could this be the same person?
I am flying to England and Scotland next week to do research. I already know Elizabeth (McLaughlin) Chapman’s father was Daniel and his father was also Daniel. The elder Daniel was supposedly born in 1727 in the highlands and this fits as McLaughlin is a corruption of McLachlan and the McLachlan castle of the highland clan leader is on Loch Fyne northwest of Glasgow. I will be visiting the castle and documenting it. I will be staying in Edinburgh for three days and hope to do some research on him there.
Can anyone help me? I will have my phone and tablet with email while I am in England and Scotland.
I am a Hill family researcher (group 8 in Hill Surname Project) looking for a Chapman researcher working on a David Chapman/Tabitha
Hill Chapman family from NC with their children moving later to Georgia. David died in Chatham County NC around 1779. Witnesses on his will were Robert Hill and Abner Hill. Several of David’s children have the same given names of their Hill uncles/aunts/grandmother...
David Alfred Chapman
My grandfather is Alfred Joseph (or Joseph Alfred) Chapman (1926-2008) whose father was Henry Graff Chapman (1884-1937) who descended from (I believe) David Albert Chapman (1841-1908). David Albert Chapman was married to Delia Della Dickenson (Dickinson).
I have very little information, except a photograph of Delia. I am stuck on David Albert Chapman's parents. I believe his father was Allen Chapman who married an Almira/Elvira/Almeria. I cannot locate too much information on either of them (save for a few census records). None of the records I can locate have Almira's last name or parents.
We believe they traveled from Connecticut Illinois and eventually to Michigan. Does anyone have a line that follows this path or have similar names?
