Caroline was born September 18, 1850 in Wandsworth, Surrey, England. She was the daughter of Robert Coshell and Mary Giles Coshell. Caroline moved from her native England to the State of Utah in the United States. There in Utah she met Joseph Chapman, who had emigrated from England in 1869. They fell in love and were married. From this union eleven children were born. They were Mary Caroline, Joseph, Josephine, Louise, Eusebius, Caleb, Harold, Rachel, David, Lillian, and Frank Chapman. This was a large happy family. Music was very large part of their lives. Everyone played instruments, and all could sing. There was even an organ in their home, and sister Jo was a good performer at the console.

Caroline loved music and poetry too. She liked plays and drama, every chance she got she would attend the entertainments at the old Salt Lake Theater. She was also very good at reading poetry herself, she was talented at performing interpretive readings. Caroline's other talents were cooking and sewing. Her daughter Lillian describes her beautiful sewing as being "just like embroidery."

Caroline's sons Ceb and Cabe describe the Yorkshire pudding she cooked, tasting so good that it was "out of this world." At Christmas her plum pudding was a tradition that was much enjoyed by everyone. Caroline also set the table twice each Christmas Day with good wholesome food, one early dinner and one late.

She took great pride in the cleanliness and neatness of here home.

This Chapman family was prosperous. There was always plenty of food, and they never lacked for necessities. Caroline was a thrifty manager too.

A photographer came to take a picture of Caroline and her children. They could not make baby Frank stop crying, so they could take the picture. They finally reached a solution by placing a toy monkey on top of the camera. The picture was taken, and as a result of the toy monkey, Frank has a startled expression on his little face.

Caroline did not do much traveling, she was too tied to her family. But she did visit "back east" for three months, and she did make two or three trips to California.

Caroline Coshell Chapman passed away on November 8, 1932 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She is buried in the City Cemetery there.
