"New Chapman Photo's 28 March 2007"

Do you know who these Chapman people are ?
I beleive that all the pictures were taken in Pottawatomie Kansas

Please E-mail if you do know who or what they are of.

I do believe this picture was taken in Kansas

I think this is Simeon and Harriet's Kansas home

Something was important about taking this picture of this room

On the back of the photo it says 3 years old

Simeon and Harriet Chapmans home in 1902
Westmoreland Kansas Congretional Church at their home
Norman Chapman e-mailed me and said this about Chapman Churches
Simeon was not the first in his line to hold church at his place.
Uriah Chapman held church at his place in Lackaway as well.
He and his father Moses were members of a group called the
Bean Hill Separatist, who were at the forefront of the religious
Great Awakening in New England in the 1730's and 1740's

I believe this is a photo of Ella Chapman
George Chapman's wife

I think this is the same person

These two girls I believe are in the picture above

This picture was taken in 1847

Chapman Lumber in Downtown Santa Ana
The Chapman girls leased the Lumber Yard to
Maclain Cadilac for 20 years. From 1952 to 1972.
In 1972 Maclain bought the yard from the girls.

Charles Chapman bought the lumber company from a company
called Consolidated in 1905. He changed the name to CH Chapman
in 1905. Charles paid payments to Consolidted until
the lumber yard was paid off in the 1930's.

The Contractor's Searchlight, the pamphlet that CH Chapman Lumber
put out, it mentions a building service that was available.

Albert was a "carpenter contractor", which, in those days,
was roughly equivalent to what we call a general contractor today.

Left side of the picture above the bridge I could see
a sign saying Jewel City

On January 16, 1916, it was reported in the newspaper, the POST, that Frank Burt, who had managed
the concessions at the recent Panama Pacific Exposition just closing in San Francisco,
was coming to Seal Beach. His purpose was to establish an amusement zone for Fun and
Frolic in this small beach village. The Jewel City Amusement Company was formed and a new
1,865 feet long pier was constructed in early summer 1916. The original pier was built in
1906. The famous Seal Beach roller coaster must have been sensational because the screams from
the down-swoops could be heard in Long Beach!




I would be interested in hearing from anyone that has more
information on the Chapman line.
