I am totally stumped on this person. On his marriage license to Jennie Rogers in Harrison County, he is Homer Russell Chapman, born in Harrison Co. Then somehow...he became Charles R. Chapman instead of Homer. Could it have had something to do with wrongdoing? Anyway, I don't remember all the details, but I know that when he died, probably around 1970, he was in a funeral home across the river from downtown and was buried in a big cemetery also across from downtown. I think it may have been a city cemetery. It wasn't kept up very well and it was big. Can anybody help me as to his real name and when he died and where he is buried? I'm not sure what name he was going by at the time, but I'm pretty sure it was Charles R. Thanks...Sue
