Bio and Links
Bio Photo William Chapline (1625-1669) arrived in Calvert County, Maryland in 1651. I am looking for "evidence" linking him to his father, Isaac Chapline (1584-1628), who arrived in Jamestown, Virginia in 1610 and lived with his wife Mary at "Chapline's Choice" near Jordan's Point on the James River in 1622.

I am particularly interested in learning more about my 5th great grandfather, Joseph Chapline (1707-1769),who served in the French and Indian War and founded Sharpsburg in Washington County, Md. in 1763. My lineage includes his descendants: Jeremiah Chapline (1756-1809) and his wife Elizabeth Nourse Chapline (1765-1846) Washington County, Md., James Nourse Chapline (1796-1830) and his wife Catharine Hebb Chapline (1796-1864)Washington County, Md., William Richardson Chapline (1820-1899) and his wife Margaret Ann Hout Chapline (1825-1885) of Shepherdstown, Jefferson County, WV., Charles Luther Chapline (1865- ?) and Marietta Delauder Chapline (1867-1943) Baltimore, Md.

Other family lines of which I am a descendant: Manning and Dobson families from Maryland and Virginia. Thomas , Garrett, and Mizell families from Baker County, Florida. Clayton and Dennard families from Suwannee County, Florida.

I also maintain memorials for my wife's family, Lewis, Coleman, Douglas, and Morris from Van Alstyne, Grayson County, Texas.

I noticed you added the photo of the grave marker. Can you advise where he is buried?

The memorial has him buried in a small farm family cemetery, located near Sharpsburg, Washington County, MD. This last burials in this cemetery conducted in the mid 1830's. This can not be the correct cemetery.

RE: John J Chapline Photo
William B. Chapline 1874-1948 & Bernice J. Chapline 1875-1935. I think they are John's parents.

RE: John J Chapline Photo
You are very welcome! I will post the photo of his wife's stone later today. I believe his parent's stone is beside his stone, but I didn see a memorial for them. I can send you the dates on the stone if you don't have them if you want to make a memorial for them. Carla😊

Chapline-Thompson marriages
Hi Michael,

In June, I spent some time in the Washington County,MD Land Records Department. I found a land deed record verifying & documenting as husband & wife; Alexander Thompson & Ruhama Chapline Thompson (record date-1788). I think this offical record with their seals is conclusive evidence of their marriage. There is also a land deed found for Deborah Chapline Thomson & John Thomson (1791). The spelling drops the "p" as in the marriage records.

RE: Chaplines at Elmwood
I have made those transfers per your request. If there are more you need feel free me know.
Also, I am searching for any info regarding the roster for the 33rdBattalion of the Maryland Militia. An ancestor I am searching for, Thomas Mock, who served with this unit in New Jersey in 1777 under George Washington. He had a wife names Sarah and parents were George & Catherine Mock. They were from "SUPPOSEDLY" living between Sharpsburg and Middletown, MD.
If you run across anything that may put me in their direction, I thank you in advance.

I did not find the Chaplain markers. I thought perhaps they were low markers and still covered by snow. We are to have a bit of rain in the next few days and I hope to try again after the rain.
