My mom listed Chapman's b. as 1820 (no dd-mm) and d. as 1877.
Chapman was a railroad engineer.
His children were Sarah, Mary, Alice, Betsy (aka Lucy), John and Will.

In 1982 cousins found his sister Sarah's grave. She m. John Martin, and d. 9-6-1851 aged 23yrs 9 mos.

G.P. Hale wrote the poem on her plaque about "sore afflictions" and loosing 2
children (John and Sarah) in infancy. No other paper records could be found.

James m. Caroline Lawson b.1833, d.1904 and started our family line. Mom shows him dying in 1886.

Mary Ann is shown as b. 1843 and d. 1913. Her last request was to be buried near her parents, but Major Cole had himself buried between her and his first wife in Wildwood.

I will ask Mom how firm her dates are. From the magnitude of the project she did her best. Old stones could have been worn too. I am sure we are talking the same family though.
