Note: @NI7830@
@NI7830@ NOTEUp to this point, the Johnny Appleseed Ancestry in the Ohio State Arch. & Hist. Quarterly, Vol 48 (1939) p 20-32 is in substantial agreement with the Edward Chapman Genealogy by Jacob Chapman. In fact, they agree even as to the list of children and birth dates of John and Elisabeth Davis Chapman. The Chapman Genealogy, however, has the wife of John listed as Joanna Perkins..."had 5 ch. He was a maker of leather breeches. Had, in 1779, bought land in Londonderry, NH where he d in 1793, ae 78." Florence Wheeler does not attempt to reconcile her research with the earlier genealogy by telling us the parents of this John Chapman who m. Joanna Perkins. However, her discussion about the children of Nathaniel, naming their uncle "Davis Chapman" who is also listed as a brother of John in the Chapman Genealogy, is probably sufficient to prove her point.
It also appears that the marriage of John Chapman to Joanna Perkins took place 21 Oct 1769 and, according to Rev. Jacob Chapman, their first child was born 1777. While it is not unusual for a youngest son to marry somewhat later in life (after his responsibilities for caring for his aging parents had come to an end,) it is a little unusual to find a man starting a family and having five children after age 60. The Perkins Genealogy contains a Jeremiah (Jacob, John, John) b Ipswich 1701 who m Joanna Smith 7 Nov 1730. Among their children was a Joanna bapt 22 Jan 1742 who m. _______Chapman. (Vol 20, p 36.) He is probably not the John Chapman who was the son of John and Elizabeth (Davis) Chapman.
