Nathan Chapman Family Bible

Nathan Chapman (1777-1868) family bible.

This is page 1 of the Nathan Chapman family bible, listing Nathan, his wife Elizabeth, and their 10 children.

Nathan was born in Virginia in 1777. He removed with his father to South Carolina during the Revolutionary War, and then to Georgia in 1790.

On 20 Feb 1800, Nathan married Elizabeth Hart, who was born in North Carolina. Nathan’s brothers Benjamin and Thomas both married sisters of Elizabeth.

Nathan and his family lived in Wilkes County, Georgia (before 1803), and Taliaferro County, Georgia (before 1827).

In the 1860 US Census, Nathan and Elizabeth are still living in Taliaferro County. Nathan is listed as a farmer, and his real estate and personal estate are valued at $2,500 and $7,630 respectively.

As most of the writing on this page of the family bible appears to have been done at the same time (note the similarity in handwriting style, ink density and line thickness), this is a derivative source, and we must treat all of this information as secondary information as we do not know who wrote it and when.


Nathan Chapman (1777-1868) and Elizabeth Hart (1780-1863) are 6th great-grandparents of MKS in the Knight branch.
