I stumbled across your Chapman website accidentally this evening and noticed my 3rd g grandparents at the very top of your Scotland Marriages.They were Adam Chapman and Helen Thomson. I also found Adam’s parents and daughters marriage records on the list.Have these come from members of your group, and if so, is there a way for me to find other family members who descend from this line?
I am looking for information on an ancestor named William Chapman born January 1807 in Carlisle Cumberland County Pennsylvania (I believe). His wife is Margarete Hinkel. I have been unable to find any information on his parents. I have found a document of the baptism of his child at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Carlisle and his marriage in 1832 at Zion German Lutheran Church in Dauphin County Pennsylvania.
ORVILLE R. CHAPMAN
I did my DNA at Family tree and have both the Y and autosomal done a few years ago. I have been disappointed as I have not heard from any of the members whom I believe go back to William Chapman 1633-1699. I thought that we would find out if any of the early Chapman's were related. There is a Robert Chapman that some thought might be related to our William but I haven't read any account of finding relation between Chapmans. Maybe I just don't understand what the information says on the long list on the Chapman group which I check from time to time. A number of years ago my wife and I spent 2 weeks at Whitby where the earliest Chapmans were. I found many William Chapmans there but non seemed to connect with my William. There is a wonderful Museum there which is mostly about the Chapman family. I got in free when they found I was a Chapman. I attended a meeting of the Cleveland family history Society which met in the Whitby Library. They said that non of the Chapmans left there for New England because they were all the very rich. Many were Bankers. An early English Pound note is called the Chapman. My William Chapman was the Church Sexton at New London so not of a rich class. Still don't know where they were from but one of our members told me that he thiks they were probably from the London area.
I saw a list of Chapman families extracted by Kathy Duncan from the 1850 census. I am related to William Gardner Chapman of Panola County, TX on that document. There is a CFA note that is referenced.
I note that a neighbor in the census was Sherod Hines who married a Mary Ann Chapman in Hardman County, TN. I am only guessing that my relative William Gardner Chapman (born 1824) and Mary Ann Chapman were brother and sister. Some census records list W. G. Chapman as from TN while other list him from Alabama.
Hi, my Nan May Thompson (nee Chapman) died early this year at 105 in Leek Staffordshire. As a point of interest I came across your site and wondered if you had any information about the Chapmans of Lingfield and before? Our Nans grandfather came to Leek around the 1850s from Lingfield.

I am Julie (Chapman) Edwards of Traverse City, MI. I am very new to genealogy and have recently begun tracing my Chapman ancestors.
On your website under Records / Genealogies I found my 3x great-gradfather's name, Justus Chapman (1784-1819), who died in Phelps, Ontario Cty., New York, His son,, Justus P. Chapman, is my 2x great-grandfather, then George W. Chapman (great-grandfather), DeVere Vining Chapman (grandfather), and Dale W. Chapman (father). From Justus P. to my father, they have all lived in and been buried in Michigan.
If you indeed have Chapman's from this line, I would be interested in learning about this and may wish to be considered for membership.
At this time,I have not been able to find Justus Chapman's parents or other ancestor information. He may have come from CT or NH, but all death/burial records from the Phelps, NY courthouse prior to 1850 were destroyed in a fire.
TAMMY LEIGHT (CHAPMAN) GARDNER
I'm asking for help to get information on my grandfather Edward Chapman dob 02/28/1934, dod 07/22/1996. My father is Frank Lee Chapman dob 02/22/1940, dod 9011. Brothers are Eddy and Thomas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm helping someone trace her Chapman roots and am struggling to find information on her great-great grandfather Elijah Chapman. I'm wondering if your association has information about Ohio branches of the family that might help me in my search. He was born around 1807 in Connecticut and then lived in the state of New York for awhile before ending up in Geneva, Ashtabula County, Ohio, where he died 22 Oct 1869. He was a butcher and is enumerated as such in the 1850 US Census in Brutus, Cayuga County, New York, and in 1860 in Geneva, Ashtabula County, Ohio. He married Harriet Emeline Berry (I don't have a marriage record or date) and had at least four children: Helen E Chapman (m. David van Epps), Elton K. Chapman (m. Mary L. Woodbury), Emeline Celia "Emma" Chapman (m. A D Belknap), and Ada Bird Chapman (m. George H. Wood and Edson T. Stanclift). If there's any information you could share with me or if there's someone else you know I could contact for information, it would be greatly appreciated.
My great grandmother was Lillian Imogene Chapman (1900-1936) lived in East Hampton (also called Chatham), Connecticut. She's buried in Skinnerville Cemetery in East Hampton. Her father was Sanford Horace Chapman (1858-1909), born in Glastonbury, CT and I have him on census documents that he lived in East Hampton, also.
His father was Horace Chapman (I'm not sure of the dates- I have 1796-1875, but I can't find him on census documents from 1850, where the rest of his family is listed as living in Chatham, but he is not. I have found a gravestone in East Hampton for a Horace Chapman that died in 1848, so maybe this is him but I don't know). This Horace was married to Harriet Hoadley - There is a book in which this match is noted and on the census documents I have found, Harriet Chapman is the mother of William (aka Willie and Burton) Chapman.
That's as far as I can get. It's like Horace Chapman just appeared out of thin air. I can't find anything on your site that might suggest that he is descended from one of "Your" Chapmans... Can anyone help me? Does it matter what Chapmans I come from? Do we jut add another branch if we can figure these folks out?
Thanks for any help you can give.
#1. I've been in contact with your organization inthe past concerning the line of Michael Chapman d. 1779, his son NathanielChapman 1739-1809, and Nathaniel's son Michael Chapman, from Bethleham, Ct.I found a 1773 deposition signed by Michael Chapman, the elder, and by anIsrael Chapman. I have not been able to find any other information aboutIsrael but know he is not a son of Michael Sr. nor a son of Nathaniel. Thismight be a clue to the parentage of Michael Sr. which is a brick wall at themoment. The first record of Michael Sr. is his marriage to Marcy/MercyDoolittle in 1733. Perhaps Israel is in your database?
My cousin and I have been trying to "prove" Michael's parentage for several year. The Hawley Society has Michael's father as Nathaniel but without sources. From our research Michael could just as easily been the son of Michael Chapman ?-1779 and Mercy Doolittle.
I have just examined a source kept at the Connecticut Historical Society in Harford that has answered that question.
Dr. Benjamin Hawley, MIchael Jr's father-in-law, kept account books one of which is at the Historical Society and there are two entries for medical services, bills and credits that proves that the father of Michael Chapman b. 1775 was Nathaniel CHapman b. 1739 who was the son of Michael and Mercy Doolittle Chapman.
So, now we know with documentation the father of Michael Chapman b. 1757. Under Nathaniel's medical entries there are entries for Molly and Rockzana, presumably daughters of Nathaniel as in other entries for other individuals Dr. Hawley wrote "for ye wife" instead of using her name. Now we jut need to find out the name of Nathaniel's wife which I have been unable to do so far. THere is a note in town recores 23 Dec 1807 that the wife of Nathaniel Chapman died.
Dr. Benjamin Hawley's Account Book
Michael Chapman 1782 June To pull 2 teeth 1 shillling 6 pence

[Under Nathaniel Chapmand there is the same 9 shilling charge added to his bill for Michael Chapman.]
GEORGE PLINIO MONTALVAN
We have proven our family linkages down to Nathaniel Chapman (and Constantia Pearson Chapman). However, we have been unable to find documentary proof (e.g., birth, marriage or death certificates, wills, deeds, etc.) linking back to Jonathan Chapman, from him to Thomas Chapman III, then to Thomas Chapman II, and finally to Thomas Chapman I, who came over on the Tryall in 1610 even though they appear in many genealogical writings. .
Could anyone offer some suggestions in this regard?
I will be very grateful for any suggestions or persons to contact that may be helpful in this research.
Is there is anyone there that might be able to help me break through my Chapman family lines. From the information I have gathered through your website and my own research it appears that my 3x great-grandfather is Francis Chapman born in 1851 in Cooperstown, NY. My 2x great-grandfather is Bert Chapman born sometime between 1873 and 1878 somewhere between Cooperstown and Fort Wayne, IN. He died in 1964 and is buried in Poe Cemetery with his wife Elsie M Chapman. My great-grandfather is Delbert Chapman born in Fort Wayne, Allen County, IN in 1911 and died in WA in 2005. He was married to Rachel Burden. My biological grandfather Jerry and my great-aunt Judith were their children. My mom Rachel is from Jerry's first marriage to Judith Ann Stanley. I am just trying to connect the dots from Francis and Christina's wedding in 1872 to how Bert ended up in Indiana. I was able to find a Francis Chapman in Huron County, Ohio as a cabinet maker sometime in the 1870's and I did find a guardianship through the Allen County Records regarding a Bert Chapman in 1899 I am not sure if these are connected or not. If your group has any further information I would greatly appreciate this.
WILLIAM A. SNUGGS
I was doing some family research and I was given some information that lead me to your web site. A little information about what I am doing/looking for. My great grandfather was Charles Quint Smith. His parents were Dr. William Edward Smith and Cora C. Chapman or Chatman. I was told that her full name was Cornelia Clyde "Cora" Chapman, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth McDonald Chapman. He is the son of William and Margaret Chapma and he is the son of James and Elizabeth Chapman.
Now I am a member of the Sons of the American Revolution and I was looking at some people that fought in the Revolutionary War ad there is a James Chapman born 1749 died 1782 and I looked on ancestry.com and found that someone's family tree lists this James Chapma born 1749 died 1783. Do you know if this is the same James CHapma? If so I would like to use him as a patriot ancestor. I would need to find proof of lineage and was hoping your site could assist with finding the proof of lineage but any help would be nice even if its just convirming that Cora C. Chapman is the daughter of Thomas.
I realized that there were several researchers/members in the CFA, but you were shown as the correspondent and had an address I could use. I don't think I made some of the facts quite clear. I have been working on all of Mark's lineages and have traced several back a long way, but am stumped by William. I have found three different sets of parents for him and all are wrong. I am hoping someone in your organization can place him and his brothers, Brooklin and Hiram.Mark's father was Major Jack Chapman b. 09 Jun 1816 in Laclede Co., Missouri, d. 03 Jan 1972, Kansas City, Missouri. His grandfather was Isaac Jackson "Jack" Chapman Jr, b, 06 Oct 1863, b. Buffalo, Dallas Co., Missouri, d. 31 Aug 1942, Joplin, Jasper Co., Missouri, bur Forest Park Cemetery. His g grandfather was Isaac Jackson Chapman, Sr, b. 1835, Tennessee, was killed in 1864 in or near Georgia, during the Civil War while serving as a Confederate soldier. He is buried in the Macedonia Cemetery , in Dallas Co., Missouri. His gg grandfather was William Chapman, b. ca 1790 in Tennessee, died in1845 in Dallas Co., Missouri.William Joseph Chapman is a brother to Isaac Jackson "Jack" Chapman. I just put his record in because it appears that he is not traced before. I have considerably more information, but wanted to limit it to just necessary information.All Mark's family knew of the Chapman side was the names of two uncles I started with their Uncle Melvin in Jasper Co., Missouri and found "I. Jack" Chapman in the same cemetery, then everything else was clear sailing.
Ahnentafel by CFA #365 Betty Joe Swanson. Ancestors, Edmund Chapman and Nancy Daniel are my line. I would like for references and/or more information as it relates to Nancy Daniel and her parents William T. Daniel and Nancy "Katie" Glass.
Any Help is appreciated.
My 3rd great grandfather, Justus Chapman (1784-1819), who died in Phelps, Ontario, New York. His son, Justus P. Chapman, is my 2nd great grandfather, then George W/ Chapman (great grandfather), De Vere Vining Chapman (grandfather, and Dale W. Chapman (father).From Justus P. to my father, they lived in and been buried in Michigan.
If you have Chapmans from this line, I would be interested in learning about this. At this time, I have not been able to find Justus Chapman's parents or other ancestor information. I have not been able to find Justus Chapman's parents or other ancestor information. He may have come from CT or NH, but all death/burial records from the Phelps, NY courthouse prior to 1850 were destroyed in a fire.
I am continuing the research of my mother, Debbie Coffey, who has an inquiry on your website. I would like to know who I might contact to collaborate on Chapman research being done in the Detroit, Michigan area in the early 1800s.
My 2nd and 3rd great-grandfathers were both named George W. Chapman and were both born in the Detroit Michigan area before the family moved to Washington around 1891. George W. Sr. was born in 1840 and was a mason or plasterer as recorded in the Detroit city directory in 1861 and 1871-1891 (not sure where he went from '61-'71). I've found the family in the 1870 census, but not the 1860. In 1850 I find a George W. Ch. *1840 in the home of Francis Furton (Not sure if this is him or not).
George W. Sr. married Mary "Sauteuse" (1844- ) in 1860. This fact comes from the marriage return of their eldest son, Charles (1864- ) in Washington state. The assumption here is that George W. Sr. married a woman of the Sauteuse Indian tribe!
These are the facts I have to work with along with some other later records in Washington. Please let me know who I might contact to get help in my research of these Chapman ancestors so I can link up with the bigger family tree!
I am actively researching the family of Philander Chapman in Michigan. I am active on both Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.

I descend from 2 different Chapman lines (?) that I just recently untangled, and hopefully have interpreted correctly. I was about ready to give up and just be happy with what solid info I had when I found the CFA.
Line 1 :Martin VB Chapman (1835-1910 GA ) m. Frances C Morris (1846-after 1910 GA) in Northwest GA. My maternal gt gt grands..
Line 2: Joseph Chapman(2nd child of above) married to Sallie Chapman (1874-1935) from my Chapman Line 2 (daughter of Fields (C or S) Chapman (1838-1921 GA) m to Margaret Hulsey (both buried in Trion, GA), George Chapman-Harriett Harmuth Chapman were Fields parents (SC).
Mr Sonfield, I am Judith Gamard, my mother is Marguerite E Chapman b. 1-1-1915. We are descended from John Andrew Chapman b. 7-17-1827, Hinds County, MS, d. 10-10-1871, Hinds County MS. I have researched family history for many years.. I have Chapman ancestry as far back as 1075, Lincolnshire, England. currently I am gathering info on "cousins" across the South and the Midwest.
I am interested in communicating withe others who are researching Chapman history.
I came across The Chapman Family association. As a Chapman, my curiosity was peaked.
My connection is William Chapman. I believe he was born in 1850? Missouri. He married Fanny Tucker. They lived in Eufala, OK (Choctaw I.T.) in the late 1880s. They had several children. One of which was Willie Wade Chapman. She was born, I believe 1893 or 4 in Choctaw I.T. Willie Wade married Walter Burrows in I believe was 1909? In Plattersville, OK Choctaw I.T.
They had a child named Myrtle Cletus Burrows Feb.7, 1910, then loaded up the wagon and went to North Texas within a few months after having Mrytle. They had several more children.
Myrtle had several children being born in Denton, TX from 1925 ( Vernon Evans Jr). My father was born on April 21, 1949. His name was Johnny Wayne Hilliard.
As an adopted person living near Ottawa, Canada I became curious about my ancestry and decided that this was the year I would determine who my birth parents are. Through hard work and the use of Ancestry DNA I was able to establish and find my birth parents living in Toronto, Canada. My birth father's last name is Chapman and while continuing to do further research about my lineage, I came across the Chapman Family Association website.
I have been able to determine my association with the Chapman family name as far back as John Chapman b.1811 in New York however I have not been able to find his name or any of his descendant's names on your website. Below I will provide the lineage I have established to date. Could you please provide me with a contact or information as to how I can connect the Canadian Chapman name to your data base?
John Chapman b.1811 New York had son....
Elijah Adams Chapman b.1831 New York d. 1902 North Dakota had son...
Rollin Amos Chapman b.1858 Illinois d. 1920 Cando, North Dakota had son...
Raymond Chapman b.1888 Whitehall, Michigan d. 1979 Regina, Saskatchewan had son...
Grant Chapman b.1918 Drake, Saskatchewan d. 2001 Richmond Hill, Ontario had son...
Terry Chapman b.1943 Regina, Saskatchewan - my birth father.
Thank you for your assistance,
Hi my Nan May Thompson (nee Chapman) died early this year at 105 in Leek Staffordshire. As a point of interest I came across your site and wondered if you had any information about the Chapmans of Lingfield and before? Our Nans grandfather came to Leek around the 1850s from Lingfield

My earliest CHAPMAN ancestor was Christened 26 Jul 1784 in Newton Upon Ouse, York, England. John, son of Mary CHAPMAN. No father is mentioned. His son Robert, born in 1810, arrived in the USA in 1832 from Huby, North Riding of Yorkshire and went directly to Grant County, Wisconsin. I don/t seem to relate to any members of the Chapman Family Association.
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 descendant of Giles Chapman. I am in search of a copy of the book by Dr. Jesse Pugh Chapman, Jr, Giles CHapman of Bridlington and His Descendants. I was given an address for Jesse P. CHapman, III in Jacksonville, Illinois and was in hopes that he could help me, but the letter was returned. Any Idia where I could purchase a copy of this book, or can you direct me to someone who might know? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
I am interested in a possible membership, but in looking over your website I wonder if your organization has anything on the Chapman family in Sharon CT. I did get a copy of the Quarterly of the Summer 1999 from a library. On pg. 24 it has (2) John Chapman and Sarah (unk) with children…+12 Obadiah. I either didn’t copy the pages leading to
him or they didn’t have them. This is the family I am interested in. I descend from John Chapman and Rachel Jackson (of Sharon, CT and then New Marlborough, MA). John’s
father was Peletiah (son of Obadiah).
Stephen Chapman Born
I am interested in finding out more about my Chapman roots in England. My Grand father, Clinton Joseph Chapman, was Homer’s brother.
Can you help me? How can I go back further than William Chapman b. 1799 and Hannah Fisher b. 1799 mentioned in this the referenced geneology?
Jon K Shidler
I have more than 250 papers that belonged to my great-great-grandfather, Daniel Shidler (1787–1864), who lived in Berlin Township, Holmes County, OH, from 1831 to1839. During the latter part of that period he exchanged wheat and other farm produce for merchandise and cash at Navarre, OH, which is in Stark County, and which had the advantage of being a port on the Ohio & Erie Canal. Attached are copies of five receipts (editor note: please contact Mr. Shidler for copies) from such transactions. I try to obtain as much information as possible about all the other people whose names appear on my ancestor’s documents in order to better understand the world in which he lived. I am publishing the results of these investigations as a series of articles in Mennonite Family History magazine.
Is any information available on the Chapman & Raffensperger business? On the web I found a Johannes Raffensperger (b 1782 York Co, PA; d 1848 Stark Co, OH) and his son Enos Raffensperger (b 1809 PA; d 1877 Stark Co, OH). Enos was married to Rosanna Chapman (1810–1893). From information I found on your website, I believe the partnership was Enos Raffensperger and a William Chapman.

My name is Page Chapman III (male), and , after 77 years or so, I have decided to do some tracing of family history, and, in particular, where the name Page came from. I started out working through Ancestry.com and after a few days discovered the Chapman Family website. I THINK I trace back to the Edward Chapman line, but there are a few blanks along the way.
My Chapman ancestor is James Chapman born 1810 in Georgia. Married Nancy Hoyle in Pike County Georgia in 1833. He died in Rusk County Texas 1897. He settled in Texas on a land grant of Henry Chapman who fought in the battle of San Jacinto. I do not know if Henry was a brother, uncle, or father. The survey in Texas was also part of a John Hallum survey. There is a reference to a John Hallum and Chapman in old 96th district in South Carolina in a land sale. I'm not sure if these are related or not. If you need anything else I will try to give you anything else I have. My user name on Ancestry is Ahearn5032
