|2005 Chapman Family ReunionChip Tuttle gave some exciting news on his research on identifying the father of Francis John Chapman. Mozelle and her mom (Allene Chapman) brought a trove of old photos they found in Aleene's family album. I will be putting these on the web site shortly. Allene died shortly thereafter due to the West Nile virus. We will miss her.
|2004 Chapman Family ReunionHorace Francis Chapman gave many stories told to him by his grandfather. An account of the three brothers coming over from Northern Ireland was fascinating. One of these brothers was the father of Francis John Chapman.
|2003 Chapman Family ReunionRoy and Chrissy Chapman were our hosts. Roy prepared his deep fried turkey which was fantastic! Later we all visted the Arnette Cemetery where the brothers, Alonzo and Don Carlos Chapman, their families, and their descendants are buried. Then we treked into the woods to visit the grave site of James Fleming Chapman Sr.|
