In Reply to: John Skirvin Sr. & Mary Ann Polly by Steve Brown of 124

Dear Steve,

I am interested in Sarah Skervin who married William Chapman on March 30, 1806 in Fayette County, KY who is the daughter of Mary Ann "Polly" and John Skirvin Sr. The birth date I have for Sarah is 1785/6. I have been trying to connect my Chapman line from Owen County, KY for a number of years. The names Joel, George, John and William run in this family.

I know the following from documents:
William Chapman was born in England in 1784 and immigarted to America before 1805. He married a Sarah born 1785/6 in the part of Virginia that became the State of Kentucky.

The family lived in Ohio from 1811-1816 when they moved to Owen County, KY. The eldest child that survived was Joel Chapman born 1812/3 in Ohio. In 1848 William Chapman became a naturalized citizen of the United States in Owenton, KY.

Is this the same William Chapman who married Sarah Skirvin (Skervin)? Their son John Chapman moved to Grant County, KY before 1860.

Any help connecting these lines would be greatly appreciated.
