Brick Wall at Mary Elizabeth Chapman b. about 1834

+2 votes
Mary Elizabeth Chapman, b. about 1834, married William Boyette.  My family has searched courthouse records and whatever we can find online to find out who her parents were.  Does anyone here working on a Chapman family tree have a clue?  Have you seen this name and not known what happened to her?

She is my second great-grandmother.

Thanks.  Maybe I will have luck finding her brother's parents!  I'll keep trying!
Thank you, Wayne.  I have had some luck searching for her brother's family.  But I'm dying laughing because there are 3 young men with the same name in the county at that time.  I wish our colonial ancestors had not used the same names so much.  They had no idea how much work they were creating for us.  :)
