Though I am not a direct Chapman descendant, I am searching for data on a collateral member of my family. Sarah Lansing McKinney married a William Sionk in Utica, NY. He was born West Stockbridge, Ma ca 1822 died about 1850, Utica, buried Forest HIll Cemetery,
Utica, NY. The mother of William Sink was Sabrina Chapman. Her tombstone has the following:
Sabrina Chapman, wife of John Sink, b. Jan 22 1794 Stockbrige Mass. Daugher of Caleb and Hannah Chapman, died Jan 20, 1880
John and Sabrina Chapman Sink had children born West Stockbridge MA
-Robert Sink 1820-1885
-William Sink 1822-1850
-Edward Sink 1831-1874
I hope to find info on Caleb Chapman, who wed a Hannah?
CFA member, Phyllis (Shelly) Chapman is requesting CFA assistance with researching her line. She is looking for information on the following people; SAMUEL CHAPMAN, who was supposedly born circa 1812-1813 in Hampshire County, Virginia. He was married to MARY JONES, born 2 January 1815 in the same county. The family is in the 1840 census of Licking County, Ohio – in the same county there resides TIMOTHY CHAPMAN, JOSEPH CHAPMAN and SALATHIEL CHAPMAN. Timothy and Salathiel are in the 50-60 age range while Joseph is 30-40 and Samuel is 20-30. By 1860 – Samuel and family are in Illinois.
I wonder if the Chapman Association has any information regarding Sarah Chapman born Saybrook CT 5 April 1742 to John and Sarah (Jones) Chapman line of Nathaniel son of Robert Chapman the immigrant beyond what was published in the 1854 Chapman genealogy by F. W. Chapman. I would also like to put a query about her on the website but could not figure out how to do it.
Sharack Chapman line
My Chapman line is as follows: Sharack Chapman 1755-1810 Laurens, SC; his son, James Lewis Chapman 1797-1852 Laurens SC died Newburgh, Warrick Co, Indiana; his son, Elisha Embree Chapman 1841-1902 Lynnville, Warrick Co, Indiana died Daingerfield, Texas; his son, Ben Chapman 1889-1963 Birthright, Texas died Ft Worth Texas; his daughter, Nancy Ladelle Chapman Johnson 1916-1983 Ft Worth TX died Aransas Pass, Texas; to her son/myself Michael Johnson 1948.
I was wondering if my line is associated with the Chapman Association.
I have been researching my Chapman line for a while. I tried to see if any of the genealogies on your site would connect with mine. I believe I am a descendant of Solomon Chapman who was a veteran of the French Indian War. He was b in 1696 in Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut. He married Hannah Strong on 8 Aug 1717 and they had 10 children. My ancestor was their 4th child, Deacon Elijah Chapman who was b abt 1726 in Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut. Elijah Chapman married Sarah Steele on 28 May 1747 and they had 12 children. My ancestor was their sixth child, Daniel Chapman who fought in the Revolutionary War. He was b 25 Jul 1756 and married Lucretia Finch on 25 Oct 1788. They had 12 children also, my ancestor was their 5th child, Solomon B Chapman b 10 Jul 1798. ... Especially if I can get help finding out where my ancestor, Colonel Samuel Chapman Sr is buried.
Mike and Anna Louise Hetzel have contacted CFA looking for information on a Stephen Chapman, born June 1762 in Hadlyme, Ct. and married in 1780 in Lyme, NH. He entered Revolutionary forces from Spencertown, NY as a substitute for Samuel (presumably a brother).
I currently reside in Southern Maryland very close to Chapman's Landing (if you are familiar with the area). My family line comes from Stephen Chapman (b. 1801) and Cassandra Garrison Swan. I have heard that possibly that Stephen Chapman's father may have been a Benjamin Chapman married to Nancy Chapman who according to the 1787 Census resided in Augusta Co, VA. Here is where my trouble begins. I cannot find real documentation that Benjamin Chapman is the father of what would be my great great great grandfather Stephen Chapman. There is also a possibility that Stephen Chapman was also married to a Mary Smart Cavitt and the speculation is that they are the parents of Stephen Chapman. If you or anyone within the organization are at all familiar with this time frame and these individuals and would be willing to provide me with information, I would greatly appreciate it. Or if you could point me in the right direction. Some other information I have is that Stephen was born in TN, and moved to MO and then to IL.
