Sue, (et all)
I have in my ancestry a Jonathan Chapman (1749 - 1827) who was the
an Olive Chapman (1782 - 1816) who married Isaac Rowland. This is
In Jonathan's will, he mentions 5 other daughters (Cynthia, Rhodey,
Prudence, and Diantha).. He also mentions 3 sons (Richard, James B.,
Peter) Perhaps one of these could be the father of your Nathaniel??
had another son Isaac Chapman who wasn't in the will. He died in
1811. I do
not know if this Isaac married, but if he had children, they were
mentioned in Jonathon's will. Jonathan lived in the Chatham area.
I see on
my map that New Lebanon is just east of Chatham. Hmmm!
There is also a William Chapman in Columbia Co. who died in 1818.. I
idea how he is connected. At the time I didn't write down if there
names in this will (wish I had now!), but I did manage to write down
was from Sharon, Litchfield Co. Ct.
Both of these wills are at the County Court House in Hudson. I
any other wills for the name "Chapman" in early Columbia County.
Hope this helps...
