A Brief Family History

How we all got here...

This page is a work in process. I will add to it as I discover more information on this line. Please check on the link on the home page to be notified for updates to this page.

===================================================
 
Here's a site that shows a picture of a Chapman coat of arms.  This is only an example of a coat of arms and I do not claim it to be of my family branch.
 

=====================================================
It does appear that my line connects up to the famous John "Johnny Appleseed" Chapman.  The common ancester is Edward Chapman, b. abt. 1619 that was married to Mary Symonds.  Now that is WAY back in history!
