I have a JAMES MOORE CHAPPELL b. in Loudoun Co, Va in 1799. James' grandfather was HENRY CHAPPELL, SR. (b abt 1716 in Maryland) and his grandmother was UPHANE/EUPHANE, who was born about 1721 and was most likely Scottish. I suspect that Uphane could have been a MOORE. Does this sound at all familiar?
If you do, please contact me right away at email@example.com and cross-reference with the following information to see if you have any similar information.
JAMES MOORE CHAPPELL's PARENTS His parents moved from Montgomery Co., Maryland abt. 1794. Their names were Thomas and Eleanor (Harvey) Chappell. Thomas was b in 1755 in Rock Creek (Frederick Co), MD. They were married in Anne Arundel Co, MD in 1781. I have no further information about Eleanor. Could she have been a MOORE relation?
JAMES MOORE CHAPPELL'S MARRIAGES/FAMILY James m Elizabeth Thompson in 1823, and she died in 1827. Their daughter was Mary Ann Chappell (who married into the Virginia Furr family). I have located an ancestor of this direct line, but she does not know where James acquired his middle name of Moore, either.
After the birth of his daughter and death of his wife, James returned to his parents' household before m Susan Slack in 1832 in Loudoun Co, Va. They lived a full and long life. His large family included his parents throughout the rest of their lives. I am still trying to locate records of his and Susan's deaths and burial sites. I suspect they died in Clarke Co, Va. My last records of them are the 1880 Clarke Co. Census and inventory for their property taxes.

Next door is JOHN CHAPPELL, most likely Henry's and Uphane's son and his family:
John Chapple 30 Verlinda Chapple 20 William Chapple 2 Sarah Chapple 1
In 1790, Henry and Thomas were listed on the Montgomery Co, MD Census. Henry was one of two free adult white males. There were three free white females in the household.
Nearby lived ARCHIBALD CHAPPLE, and he lived next door to a JAMES MOORE. Archibald lived alone, and he was too old to have been Thomas' son. (I think he might have been his brother or uncle.)
JAMES MOORE was one of three free males over 16 in his household. There were also five white free females and he owned two slaves.
I hope that this information is useful to someone who has been researching and has stumbled on Chappell along the way. If so, please contact me and let me know about it. I and my Chappell family thank you and hope to hear from you soon.
Please contact me as soon as possible if you have any information for me. I have been on this search for many years and am due for a breakthrough! Thanks!
