If you are looking for a placename Chaplin, it is likely Chaplin River or Chaplin Fork. In early records, they used the name of nearby watercourses to locate property. Check the Gazetteer for the name of a river or stream.
Chaplin River is partly in Washington Co. This county was divided into several others including Marion.
Good Luck.
