Kay Rixie McGhee Can you tell me if the person who posted the picture of John Chapman's Home. If they are any kin to my husbands family. My father-in-law is John Martin Chapman, from Ohio. My husband is John Martin Chapman, Jr. My husband was born in ElizabethTown, KY in 1967. His mother is Paula Lee Douglas Chapman. The only other family members I can think of are a David & Carolyn Chapman, Donald & Janet Chapman. These are John Sr.'s brothers. I can get information from my mother and father-in-law. I just happened to see this house of John Chapman on the
Ancient Faces Site. Any information appreciated. Anyone can e-mail me at [contact link] with any information if they have any.

Courtney Chapman Hi, my name is Courtney Chapman I have a rather LARGE family. Well it would take about 3 books to write down a story about each family member, and an orchard of trees to begin a family tree. The farthest back I know about my family though is my great-grandfather his name is Lee Chapman, from West Virginia. He had 8 children Leroy, Garnet, Leota, Mildred, Thelma, Louise, John, Bill, and my grandfater Thomas. Leroy had 2 children, John had 1, Bill had 2, Mildred had 4, Louise had 6, Thelma had 3, Garnet had 3, Thomas had 8. Of the eight children my grandfater had 4 girls and 4 boys, their names are: Sylvia, Patrica, Alice, Tometta, Timmothy, David, Terry, and Bruce. My mother's name is Tometta, but her last name is Serfass now. Well, Sylvia had 1 child, Patricia had 1, Alice had 4, Tometta had 4, Timmothy had 3, David had 3, Terry had 3, and Bruce has no children. There's lots of other people in my family, but I would have to talk to my grandmother to find out the rest of them. Just thought I would share maybe it's useful information to those like me looking up their family tree.
