Mary Jane Chappell, 1838, daughter of Henderson and Sara/Sarah
Rigsby CHAPPELL. Her father died in the Mexican War when she was 10 years
old - does anyone know what happened to the family after 1848? I am trying to
find out when and where she married John Marion YOUNG --- their first child ,
Joseph , was born in 1863 - then Martha E. 1864 and John William 1866 - in 1867 (
according to JW's obit ) the family moved to Delta Co TX in an ox wagon train and
they had 4 more children. JM died and left Mary Jane a widow in the 1880 census.
They are buried in Oak Lawn Cem. in Cooper, Delta Co. TX.
