Chaplin was born in the old log house on his father's farm. About three months out of the year, he attended school in his community. In 1864, he went out with Company H, 169th Volunteer Infantry. He served 100 days and did garrison duty at Arlington Heights, near Washington, D.C. At the close of the war, he returned to his farm in Green Creek. Chap cast his first presidential vote for Stephen A. Douglas, his second for Abraham Lincoln, and thereafter was consistent in his support of the Republican party. He was a member of the Odd Fellows at Green Springs and a member of the Encampment, IOOF at Cldye.

Chaplin and Ellen were married September 9, 1859 in Ballville. They had three children: Etta Otilla, Eva Viola, and Burton William.

Chap was buried on Easter Sunday at the time of the Fremont flood. The Ballville dam broke the night after he was buried.
