It can be very difficult to keep track of so much information and as I was looking at the record created I noticed a couple of inconsistencies that could be confusing. The written account of Josiah's Revolutionary War service says that he was attached to a SC regiment, yet there is a digital record attached that says he was an ensign in a unit from RI. Since the written account refers to the language in the military pension record submitted by Josiah's wife, it is most likely the correct version. Also, although you have a death date from a descendant it would seem that the information provided was incorrect. Again referencing the pension application the widow says he died before 1846. And as the widow, Sarah, died in 1849 and is listed in the mortality record and Josiah is not listed in that record the earlier date is likely the most valid.
Please know that I appreciate your efforts and recognize how hard it is to keep so much information straight. My message is not meant as a criticism; only to help reduce the misinformation that can get included in amateur family trees. Thank you.

I'm not a known relative of your Charles Chapman, Debra. I'm just performing my "Chapman duty" by working through the 36 just-released, Missouri-published death certificates of those who died in 1963. Where no memorial exists, I try to create one. Where information is incomplete, I submit edit suggestions. And whenever I can find links to parents, spouses or children, I try to effect those, too.
If there is such a thing as karma, I recently got a nice dose of it: Three days ago, a lady I've never met found a post card photo of one of my family relatives who died 91 years ago of a fall from the hay loft when he was just nine years old. She found the post card in an antique shop, purchased it, digitized it, posted it on the boy's Find A Grave memorial, then notified me. Since I was probably one of only two or three living people who even knew this poor little boy existed, imagine how stunned I was to get my first look at this boy--from a photo supplied by a complete stranger!
Moral of the story: Help out where you can, since your random acts of kindness may some day be rewarded in kind.
St. Charles, MO
I'm related to the Chapmans from Ray Co.
Bob Chapman, Helen "Love" Chapman and Dudley Chapman....There's more but they are distance Cousins.
I'm related to some Chapman's from Boone Co, but I not sure how.....I'll see what I can find out.
Are you related to any Chapmans from Ray County Missouri.....Just wondering.
You're welcome...Sorry it took me awhile to get it done.
