Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been involved in Chapman genealogy for some 30 years. My initiation into anything that resembles organized genealogy was due to Gil Alford who started a newsletter ("Chapman Chatter") which eventually led to the Chapman Family Association ( I continue to be involved with this organization, currently as it's President. We encourage any with Chapman ancestry to make contact.

Most of my efforts are devoted to the SW MO & a bit of N.W. AR, N.E. OK & S.E. KS cemeteries. I encourage contact, corrections & comments & am pleased to transfer to family members. If you have a better photo, go ahead & post but let me know so I can delete mine.

Are you related to Doris Underwood buried at Pineville Cemetery, if so, was she the first wife of Donald Lee Underwood, who married my cousin Joyce Louise Williams Goade in 1985.

Parkview Memorial Cemetery in Michigan. Duplicate, #131110032. Yours was entered first. Just an FYI.

Re: Marvin Jones
Mr. Chapman,
Thank you for responding so quickly and for transferring my grandfather's memorial. I'll be adding/updating a few things to his bio this week and I've already added a few pictures. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind removing the initial photo on his memorial. I realize it was used for his Memorial Service and in the newspaper accompanying his obituary, but it's also one of the last photos taken of him and is not very flattering (he's still in hospital garb & appears quite gaunt). I'm new to this site, but I don't seem to be able to remove it, even as the contributor. (I assume that's because I didn't upload that particular picture and/or because it was the original photo.)
I hope I do not offend you with this request; I'm thankful for your having started the memorial... it's just that he looks so different in that photo than the way most ppl in his life remember him.
Hope you can help,

Marvin E. Jones Memorial
Hello Mr. Chapman,
I'd like to request ownership/transfer of ID#: 140383473, Marvin E. Jones, my grandfather.
Since his passing, a number of relatives have asked me more about him (more-detailed bio, pics, etc.), and I thought it would be easier to maintain and add to his memorial if I could do it whenever I wanted to add new info. (I've also requested my great-grandparents' - grandpa Marvin's mom and dad - Arthur & Fairl Jones - memorial contributorship from the nice lady who started theirs').
Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide to help you in your decision.
Shane Jeffries
PS. You look familiar...were you the minister at his graveside service there in Rocky Comfort?

Brown Graves
Hi! I was wondering if you could transfer the graves of. Phoeba C. Brown (1864-1935) & Junius Wellington Brown (1860-1935) to me? Those are my Great Great Grandparents, I was recently linked to them by another Find A Grave member, and am anxious to connect the dots! Thank you SO much!

Nancy J Baker
Dear Mr. Chapman, I wondered if this Nancy J. Baker was the wife of Zachary or Zachariah Taylor Baker? My second great grandmother was Nancy J Sinclair Powell Brooks Baker. Rosa was her daughter. I have been looking for years for her gravesite and hope you can help me. Thank you for all your fine work. Jackie Ruby
