Capt Henry Chapin

Birth: Jan. 25, 1630
Berry Pomeroy
Devon, England
Death: Aug. 15, 1718
Hampden County
Massachusetts, USA

Henry was a sea captain, also served 7 years in the Royal Navy. He died in Springfield, but had his body shipped back to Paignton, Devonshire for burial-- odd at first glance because his parents were bur in the New World. However the note I have on his gf is "Paignton, Devonshire, buried at sea"-- so perhaps the Royal Naval connection took precedence for him.

Body buried at sea
Specifically: Henry served in the Royal Navy, as did his grandfather. Paignton is right on the coast, which also makes sense.

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;........... And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over. ~John Masefield
