Flowers left for Nathaniel Chapman
Daughters of the American Revolution MagazineVol. 46-47Page 181Chapman, Nathaniel, b. abt. 1750, m. at Leominster, Mass. Elizabeth Simonds, and his dau. Elizabeth, m. Nathaniel Rudd. He marched in Capt. Wilder's Co., in The Lexington Alarm (Lineage Book, Vol. XXV)Nathaniel Chapman was a minute man at the battle of Concord, served with Isreal Putnam at Bunker Hill and was with George Washington at Valley Forge. His service with the Continental Army was from 1777 until 1780, at which time he was honorable discharged at Springfield, have attained the rank of Captain early in the colonial struggle.....On July 24, 1780, Nathaniel married Lucy Cooley and they made their home at Longmeadow where their ten children were born, the first being Nathaniel who became John's favorite half-brother....I was unable to learn who cared for John and his sister Elizabeth during the period of the Revolutionary War. It is said that Captain Chapman gave all of his property at Leominster to the cause of the colonies, but it would seem more logical to me for it to have been sold to support the children.Source:From a story by Frank O. Chapman to the Brooke Co. Historical Association, April 20, 1967 This is a very good piece on "Johnny Appleseed"A member of the "Royal Family"Rest in Peace
