    "5. Deacon Nathaniel Chapman, son of Robert Chapman, born February 16, 1653, … Deacon Nathaniel Chapman died April 5, 1726, aged 73. … That he was held in high estimation by his fellow-citizens, is evident from the fact that he was for many years deacon of the church in Say-Brook, and represented the town in the General Court, at twenty-four sessions. He was a very large landholder, as appears from the records of the town of Say-Brook, and of the Oyster River Quarter. He owned fifteen hundred acres in Hebron, which he received by inheritance from his father, and presented to his son, the Rev. Daniel Chapman, of Fairfield, Green's Farms, Conn. On the decease of his father, he inherited the paternal homestead, and left the same, by his will, to his youngest son, Caleb, reserving to his widow, the use of one-third of his personal estate, and of his housing and lands, and the right of occupying the homestead, with the said Caleb Chapman, during her natural life, and making her and his two sons, John and Nathaniel Chapman, executrix and executors. His tombstone, a plain slab of slate, may be seen in the ancient burial-ground at Say-Brook, as also that of his second wife, Hannah."
