Descendants of William Chapman

Franklin Co., IN

WILLIAM CHAPMAN was born ca. 1800 in TN or NC. He died December 15, 1848 in Franklin County, Indiana. William married Lydia Price on June 12, 1818 in Franklin County, Indiana. Lydia is the daughter of James and Nancy Price from Kent County, Delaware.

William’s parents are thought to be Enoch Chapman and Mary Barnet from Wilkes County, NC. Although this has not yet been proven.

Through census, tax, military and court records you can trace the Fortner, Spradling and Chapman families traveling together from Wilkes County, NC after 1800, through Grainger County, TN in 1805, and on to Franklin County, IN by 1815.

Again, throughout census, tax and court records, you find Enoch, John and William within Whitewater Township (later Highland Twp) in Franklin County. Unfortunately, William died before the 1850 census, so there is no known record of his place of birth. But John Chapman, probably William's brother, listed NC as his place of birth in 1850. Two of William’s children listed his birthplace as TN on their 1880 census entries, although NC would be possible too.

The last known record that mentioned Enoch Chapman is the 1830 census for Franklin County, Indiana. There has yet to be a will, probate or death record found for him.
