Could this page have a short intro to who the Chapman brothers were? According to https://fromthehistoryroom.wordpress.com/tag/chapman-brothers/ , they were Frank M. & Charles O. Chapman, along with for a time a cousin(?) Charles Clark(e) Chapman. Unfortunately, none of them or their immediate family lines seem yet to be on WT.

Also, what is the relationship between this page and Space:Portrait and Biographical Record?

Thanks for this info. I've added a link to "Tazewell County, Illinois". I also added a link you provided to the background information about the Chapman brothers. That other Space page appears to be a duplicate. I am going to have to merge the two.

Thanks RIck. In the meantime I tried to do a little work on the Chapman family tree to identify how John(ny "Appleseed") Chapman, Charles Clarke Chapman, and the brothers Frank M. & Charles O. Chapman were all related. The narrative & relationships may not be as clear as often presented, but good info is hard to find, esp. on the latter two.
