Notes for EMILY MARKOE:
In recording her death a local journal said:
Mrs. Chapman was a gifted conversationalist, endowed with a keen sense of humor and wit, which made her a special favorite among her large circle of friends. In addition to a clever and brilliant mind, Mrs. Chapman was endowed with a kindly and generous disposition, which displayed itself in many gracious and courteous deeds of kindness and charity. In the death of Mrs. Chapman almost the last of a generation of brilliant women, which have made Philadelphia so justly famous, passes away.
Notes for GEORGE WILLIAM CHAPMAN:
George William Chapman, the other son of Dr. Nathaniel Chapman, was born in Philadelphia December 10, 1816. He entered the University of Pennsylvania in 1829, in the class of 1833, but withdrew at the close of his junior year, having, September 20, 1832, been appointed a midshipman in the United States Navy. He was warranted as a passed midshipman June 23, 1838, and was commissioned a lieutenant from September 8, 1841. His first assignment, February 9, 1833, was to the Grampus, then the Vandalia, and subsequently the Peacock. After nearly two years of service on shore, he was ordered to the Brandywine, June 29, 1839, of which he was appointed active master November 10, 1840. After further shore duty at Philadelphia, and in connection with coast survey service, he was ordered to the Porpoise January 16, 1843. During the later years of his life he served successively on the Independence, the Columbus, the Cumberland, etc. embracing the period of the Mexican war. His death occurred in Philadelphia, February 20, 1850. Lieutenant Chapman was recognized in naval circles as an able officer, who intelligently comprehended and discharged the duties imposed upon him, and who only lacked the occasion of a great naval war--which that with Mexico was not--to bring out his inherent talents along the line of his chosen profession.
