I am interested to confirm my descent from Giles Robert Chapman, 1702-1789 and Sarah Jackson, 1710-1789. They came from England to Virginia, then to South Carolina. Giles was a prominent Quaker. I believe my line is through Giles’ son:
Samuel Chapman Sr. 1735-1790 and Nancy Hannah 1740-? SamuelChapman Jr. 1762-1855 and Mary Ann Burrenn 1780-?
Giles Mathis Chapman 1796-1865 and Elizabeth Gardner 1807-1900
Louis Otis Chapman 1828-? and Margaret Ellen Odom 1835-1890
William Giles Chapman 1854-1891 and Sarah Emma Webb 1851-1879
William Lee Chapman 1875-1963 and Jessie Verbina Williamson 1889-1942
Mary Lucille Chapman Brule 1917-2011 and William Albert Brule 1912-1996
I would appreciate any input. This is not a genetic line since I was adopted as an infant.
I am researching my Chapman line. They immigrated from Virginia, Maryland or North Carolina to Tennessee after revolutionary war. Then they immigrated to Missouri, I believe, to avoid slavery and they might have been Quakers.
