    Lewis Chapin.

    [Note: no gravestone image, but provides a copy of obituary.]
    Dea. Lewis Chapin died in this city on the 25th ult. He was one of the oldest citizens of Worcester. He was born here May 27, 1792, and resided on his farm at South Worcester from early manhood, till advancing age compelled his abandonment of active work. "The Chapin Place", now owned by Mr. D. G. Aldrich, has been a marked locality for half a century or more. Dea. Chapin has been connected with the Union Church since its organization, and was its oldest deacon, and was for several years a member at the Old South church. He has always been held in high esteem as a man of sterling integrity, sound judgment and Christian principle, and during his active life was frequently called by his fellow townsmen to share the burdens of public office. He was elected one of the selectmen of the town of Worcester in 1829, and was re-elected to the same office in 1835, '39, '40 and '41. He was also elected representative to the general court in 1832, '33, '38, '39 and '40. Dea. Chapin has reared a large family, and was universally esteemed and respected by all who knew him. His death removed another from the few of the early settlers who have watched with interest and aided in the development of this city.
