I love Philmont! My mother and father both grew up there. My sister and I have made
several trips there to research. We always stop to take another photo of Grandpa
Chapman's house. What a surprise we had on our last trip 2 yrs ago! A young man was
working in the driveway, so I asked if he minded my taking a photo, saying our grandfather
had lived there.
Oh, my! He had to bring us inside to show us some things he'd recently found in the
attic: one was a large framed engraving of Grandpa (which he gave us!). I have the photo
of E. P. Chapman that the engraving was evidently copied from. There were several other
items and one large framed beautiful pastel portrait of a little blonde girl whom we
didn't recognize. Possibly one of of our step-grandmother's relatives. What
exciting finds they were!
Snows? That's a surprise! My husband's father was from Maine, went to NYC, then
ended up on Long Island, where my husband and I lived for many years. I doubt the Philmont
Snows were related.
