Chapin at age 85" Mrs. Sarah Twogood Chapin, widow of Colonel Alfred Chapin of the Tenth Wisconsin Infantry and pioneer resident of this section, died yesterday morning at 11:40 o'clock at the Swedish American Hospital, where she had been a patient for the last six weeks, of infirmities incident to advanced age. Mrs. Chapin came here (to Winnebago County) with her father Sidney Twogood, a veteran of the War of 1812, who purchased a tract of land where the old Kishwaukee trail crossed at the ford near the present village of Cherry Valley. Indians were numerous when her family first located here. Here marriage to Alfred Chapin was an event of July 30, 1859 at Chicago. They settled in Milwaukee, where Mr. Chapin became established in business and was First Lieutentant of the Milwaukee Light Guards. Later he organized the Tenth Wisconsin regiment and Mrs. Chapin followed the regiment when it went south and ministered to the suffering who fell on the field of battle. As a result of a wound incurred, the Colonel broke down and died in Rockford Dec. 20, 1866. The Chapin home was at 635 Longwood Street (Rockford, Illinois, Winnebago County).
