William Chappell

b. 15 May 1758, d. 18 May 1799
     William Chappell was born on 15 May 1758 at Amelia Co., VA.1,2 He was the son of John Chappell and Prudence (?) William Chappell married Elizabeth Dickey, daughter of John Dickie, on 6 November 1783 at Halifax Co., VA. William Chappell died on 18 May 1799 at Halifax Co., VA, at age 41.

William accompanied his brothers, Robert, John and James, and other relatives, when they removed to Halifax county about 1780, and the first account we find of him there was his marriage. He soon bought a tract of land and established a home on the south side of Dan river in the extreme southern part of the county, adjoining the plantations of his brothers, where he continued to live until his death, at the early age of 41 years.3

William seems to have been an industrious and prosperous farmer, for his name appears several times on the pages of the deed books of Halifax County. He died testate, and his will, written November 1, 1798, was proved June 24, 1799. It was witnessed by William Dickie, Sr., a brother-in-law, and Nancy Chappell, a niece, the latter a daughter of Robert Chappell. In his will the names of his children are mentioned in the following order, which was the order of birth. David Crawley, Sarah, William, Dickie, John Watkins, Elizabeth, and Alexander. None of these children were grown at the time of their father's death. David Crawley and John Watkins died in Virginia, before arriving at maturity; the others all lived to be married, and in after years removed to the State of Tennessee. The brothers of the testator, Robert and John Chappell, and his brother-in-law, Edwin Garlington, were appointed executors and also guardians of his children. The inventory of his estate, which is on file, amounted, exclusive of lands and negroes, to £898 4s. 7d., or, in dollars and cents, to $4,347. On February 22, 1802, Elizabeth Chappell, the widow, receipted to the executors for her dower. The witnesses to this receipt were William Dickie, Sr., David Crawley Chappell, and Conway and William Garlington-the two latter were the sons of Edwin Garlington, and hence her nephews. .4

There is a double relationship between the descendants of John and William Chappell-two brothers having married sisters-the daughters of John Dickie, Sr. This close relationships has perhaps let to more than the usual affectionate feeling of kinship-an affection which has continued unbroken for more than a century. .4

Elizabeth, the widow of William Chappell and Thomas Crawley, in 1832, removed with her youngest son, Alexander Chappell to Maury County, Tennessee, whence all of her children had preceded her. She died in that county, at the home of her son William, having live to be nearly an octogenarian. She is remembered by those yet living and it is said that in her young days she was tall and spare with an olive complexion and black hair and eyes; a description which is directly the opposite of that which has come down of her sister, Susannah Garlington, who is said to have been a very decided blonde and "large in person." .5

Thomas Chappell

b. 1612, d. after 1665
     Thomas Chappell was born in 1612 at Gravesend, England.1 He died after 1665 at Charles City Co. Va.

Thomas Chappell sailed from Gravesend, England, 23 June 1635, on the ship America, William Barker, master, for the colony in Virginia. He was 23 years old when he sailed from England, as appears from the clearance papers of the ship and hence was born in 1612. That he was the son of Captain John Chappell, master of the Speedwell, there are good reasons to assume, although there is no positive proof to establish the correctness of this conclusion. The name "John" has been from the beginning the favorite Christian name in the Virginia branch through every succeeding generation, and when we remember that it has been an invariable custom among the Chappells always to perpetuate their family names, we must conclude that the evidence is at least persuave that young Thomas was a son of the old mariner.2

From unmarked newspaper: "Thomas Fletcher Carpenter was the fourth son of Rev. John and Elizabeth Carpenter. "He was born in Simpson County, Kentucky, August 19, 1842, and died at this home near Belton, March 24, 1909. In 1852 he, with his parents, eight brothers and sisters and a large colony of other relatives and friends, eighty in number, came overland to the Lone Star State, to seek homes beneath her sunny skies. They settled in Bell County, four miles east of Belton, and to this home many a weary traveler made his way towards the close of day to spend the night, beneath their roof and enjoy their hospitality. "Here Mr. Carpenter grew to manhood and there he formed acquaintances and made true friends, that were his all through life, and many of them stood beside his bier when the last sad rites were performed. "He enlisted in the war in 1862, was in Company D, 21st Texas Cavalry. He was a brave soldier and remained in the service, fighting for Sunny southland he loved so dearly, until the close. When the war was over he went back to the old farm home and took up the daily pursuits of life.


On September 6th, 1866, he was married to Miss Mary Lee, daughter of Ed F. and Rebecca Lee, at their suburban home in Belton. This union was blessed with twelve children, ten of whom with their mother and grand children also one brother and three sisters, and a host of relatives survive him.


"Mr. Carpenter was a staunch Methodist and enjoyed the religion he professed. It was ever his greatest privilege and his keenest pleasure to work for the Master and attend the protracted camp meetings. Their home was always thrown open on these occasions. He and his noble wife would entertain all who came.


"Indeed this home is noted for its true Southern hospitality, it was during one of these meetings in 1882 that his conversion dates from. Long after the midnight hour, when all but he were sleeping soundly, the family and guests were awakened with shouts of praise and in that quiet country home, when all nature was at rest, when none but God was near, he gave himself to the God . . . .
