Searching information about Maryland Chappell's > Leesburg, Loudoun Co, VA
Do you know anything that I could add to this information, please?
Thomas b. 1755 Lower Potomac Hundred, Frederick Co., MD., m. Eleanor Harvey 11 Jan 1791, St. James Parish, Old Herring Creek Paris, MD. She was b. abt. 1761 and d. in Loudoun Co., VA abt. 1838, according to marriage, census, tax, and will information. James Moore Chappell 1797-1880 (my direct line), John (1793-1835), George (1786-bf 1839), and Siggarina (m James E. Slack 23 Nov 1820).
Henry b. 1716 in Maryland, d. abt. 1788 in Montgomery County, Lower Potomac Hundred, Maryland. Married to
(E)Uphane, possibly daughter of James Moore who was born in 1690 and died in 1729. She was born in 1726 and died after 1783, according to Census records. Children: Thomas (see above), John (1746-1835), George (1760), Rebecca (1757), Henry Jr (1731), Archibald (bf 1774), and James.
I'm back on the trail, searching for information on myChappell family members who originated in Maryland. They intermarried with Slacks several times and, after transplanting themselves in Virginia, lived in Leesburg and Bloomfield, Loudoun County, Virginia from 1790s-1870s and Paris, Delaplane, and Upperville, Fauquier County, Virginia before my direct line settled into Washington, D.C. sometime before 1948.
As you may imagine, a major challenge has been to trace this line separate from the most well-known Thomas Chappell line, descended from John of the Speedwell. Many of our family names and dates are similar (James, Thomas, George . . . have to love these English roots!) It was the connection to the Slacks running through several generations that assisted me in this. Both Thomas Chappells appear in the DAR records, and I have been in touch will some of the ancestors who share the line; however, I have not heard anything new in a very long time.
These are some of my gaps:
1.Thomas' middle name and his death & burial information.
2.Eleanor's parentage and her death & burial information.
3.The origin of James Moore Chappell's middle name (perhaps [E]uphane's maiden name?) and his death & burial information.
4.Henry and (E)uphane's information (birth, marriage, death, parentage, and burial, etc.)
I have a wealth of information about James Moore Chappell's descendants along this line, for anyone who is interested, including information about the Slack connections.
Casting my net and hoping for a bite,
Julia Chappelle-Thomas (yes, I do love irony!)
