Joseph Chapman was born Christmas Day, 1745, in Halifax County, Virginia. He served as a captain of NC militia during the Rutherford Expedition against the Cherokee in 1776, and also served tours in the Wilmington NC and Camden, SC areas.
After moving to SC, he served under Andrew Pickens, both at the Siege of Ninety Six with Captain Robert Anderson, and later as a dragoon with Captain Robert Maxwell. He was severely wounded in another campaign against the Cherokee but survived, living to the age of 90.
He and wife Mary moved northward across SC, their last home was off modern Midway Road in Pickens County. Numerous descendants are still to be found in Pickens and neighboring counties, while many others are spread across the U.S.
We look forward to seeing you and please remember to check in when you arrive for a name tag. We also ask that if you are presenting a wreath, please check in at least 20 minutes early and place your wreath in the designated area.
