I am a 76.6yr old who spends many hours a day on the computer. I research as many Chapman's as possible, especialy those who have been in the military. My father spent 31yrs in the Army Air Corps and U.S. Air Force. I too served in the Air Force from 1957-1960, at Hickam A.F. Base in Hawaii.|
Much of my free time I spend as a member of the Moose fraternity, at the Anaheim, Buena Park, Garden Grove and La Habra Lodges. Have been a Governor, District President and Past President of the Legion.
I retired from the City of Anaheim after 30yrs in the Parks Department

Have recently photographed this Chapman stone. Thought you might like to have a peek...you left such a nice thought on it.
|Stone♥Searcher||Robert C Chapman memorial #54914826|
Hello Mr. Chapman. I have noticed a virtual flower on the memorial of Robert Chapman from you & was hoping you could possibly help answer a question of mine. I was out trying to fulfill photo requests & as always I snap photos of any marker nearby. I came across the stone of R C Chapman at the Waxahachie City Cemetery, you can see the photo I have uploaded to the memorial. However, the birth year didn't match the memorial, but I've come across that many times. I don't see another R. C. Chapman in the Waxahachie City cemetery records, so I believe it may be the correct stone. I would like to keep the photo uploaded to the memorial, but only if it's the proper one. I thought perhaps you could help resolve the mystery. Maybe the memorial needs to be corrected or maybe I just need to remove my photo. You seem to know about these Chapmans, I was hoping you would be able to help. The contributor that has this memorial just got several memorials transferred to her all at once due to the health of the original contributor, so she doesn't have the answers. Thanks so much for your time.
Have a great day!
-Shelia from Waxahachie, Texas

Thank you for the response. I can understand the excitement of wanting to share your information with others. That's why I make my memorials. This is a great site and wonderful way to share freely. If you have any data that you wish to be included in a memorial, please contact me and I wil be glad to add it. I find most Find A Grave members are willing to do the same.
|Michelle Shreve||leaving notes on flowers|
It has come to my attention that you have left some biographical notes on flowers you have placed on some Chapman memorials that I have created and maintain. I would like to make you aware of the following Find A Grave policy: "Additionally, biographical information and obituaries should not be included in a virtual flower." I would have been glad to include appropriate info to my memorials if you would have used the "edit" tab at the top of each memorial and sent me a message. In future, I would appreciate it if you do not leave lengthy information in flowers without first contacting me and giving me the opportunity to add your info properly in the content of the memorial. Thank you.
|Boyd Lydick||Samuel Light and descendants|
I am so grateful for the Beatrice Light Bible and the Samuel Light descendants printout. What a great deal of information and some that I did not have. My step grandmother was Martha Jane Light and I remember her so very well although I only was close to her until I was about 8 and them saw her a short time before her death in Omaha from cancer about 15 years later. My grandmother, Minnie Holiday died when she was but 25 and my father was their first son.
Once again - I am so grateful!
|JLB||RE: Samuel Averill|
Greetings from Tacoma, Washington. How very interesting that you mention in you posting to the memorial of Samuel Averill that he was a "ship carpenter". You may find it interesting to know that Samuel, and his son Walter, are buried in the lot owned by Captain John Saltar within the Steilacoom Masonic Cemetery here in Lakewood, WA. There are at least three sunken and unmarked graves in this lot and I wonder if more of the Averill family may be buried there. Thanks for the information and, hopefully, you may be able to provide further information on this family in the future.

I have found a rare 1865 Michigan photographer:
George J. Rehklau in Jonesville, MI
Could this John be your George John Rehklau?

I have located a 3rd child of Deacon Daniel Hodgdon . Sarah E. Hodgdon. I had a photo request for Sarah and today when I took them I found her parents as well. There were only 3 stones in this area, Sarah and her parents. I did take photos of theirs as well and I will add them to her parents Memorials.
|Gary Gibson||RE: Lydia Chapman|
Thanks for looking,I also will keep looking for next of kin. Some of the Chapmans of Washington Co. Oh. were related to "Johnny Appleseed". Tanks again Leonard.
|Gary Gibson||Lydia Chapman|
