My 3rd grade grandson is doing a report on John "Johnny Appleseed" Chapman. We have traced Johnny's ancestry back to Edward Chapman of Ipswich, MA.
Our next step is to discover if our CHAPMAN relatives are related to Johnny.
Johnny's ggg grandfather was Immigrant EDWARD CHAPMAN. He married second widow DOROTHY (SWAIN) ABBOT, who was the widow of THOMAS ABBOT. I am descended from immigrant ARTHUR ABOTT. I have no other info on THOMAS ABBOT.
In my ancestry I have a MARY CHAPMAN d 2/17/1769 Ipswich. She married AARON PINGRY also spelled Pengry,Pengrey, Pingree, April 1667 at Ipswich I have no idea to which CHAPMAN family she belongs.
A DANIEL CHAPMAN with marriage intentions to ABIGAIL DUTCH dated 11/30/1723 and had 4 daughters bef 4/1730. They are connected to MOSES PINGRY who helped settled family land disbursements. I know nothing more of Daniel and Abigail.
My husband's gg grandmother GRACE CHAPMAN was born in the early 1800's, married GEORGE MOORS/MOORES/MOORE and they resided Prince Edward Island. I know nothing more about Grace nor her pedigree.
Any info on any or all of these folks greatly ppreciated. His report is due mid Feb 2009.
