Chapmans of Girard Twp.

I am looking for more information about William G. and Nancy Chapman who were living in Girard Twp. at the time of the 1850 US Census. He was 27, she was 28, and they had four boys, presumably their sons, living with them: William T. age 7, Thomas C. age 4, Winfield S. age 3, and Adriel age 2 months. Thayer Holbrook, age 68, also lived in the household. Adriel was my great-grandfather, who married Dora Sherman. He died very young and was supposedly buried in a small cemetery near Albion, whose graves had to be moved to build a road. By the 1860 Census, these four boys are living with William and Nancy Swartwout, so I assume William may have died and Nancy remarried. Any information about Adriel, William or Nancy would be greatly appreciated.
