Ward Weekly Reflex - Sep 13, 1879 states that Chapman had been employed at the Martin White Mill for about six months before his death. The papers never gave the cause of his death, except reported he was seriously ill, then died. He was buried the day after his death.
There are about three graves in this area about 200 yards apart. Two have the fallen palings, but Chapmans is a nice marble monument resting against a Cedar Tree.- Donna Frederick
