226 DAR Patriot Index: b.6-8-1725; d. 1804; m. Margaret Mitchell; CS NC.´
Taken from Genealogy of Miles Marshall (1789-1868) including Civil War and Other Letters, compiled by Joy Neal Kidney (Joy and Guy Kidney at 1102 18th St. in West Des Moines, IA 50265 - Valley Junction, telephone 515-223-0325) and obtained from the Morrisson-Reeves Library in Richmond, VA, R.929.2, M358k, c.1: A descendant of John Chapman, Thomas Chapman (1725-1804) was a Justice of the Peace in North Carolina during the Revolutionary War. He was disowned by the Cane Creek Monthly Meeting of Friends for so serving. According to the minutes, "1779, 3, 6. Thomas Chapman is complained of for taking a state of public affairs contrary to the advice of Friends, and continuing to act therein after the time he informed Friends of his commission would rn out, and that he would not accept another, or anything of moment, without acquainting Friends therewith, but to the reverse of this, he as himself acknowledges, administered the oath, wrote tickets relating to drafting as it is called, signed or granted a warrant or press to take guns, for a military purpose. This meeting therefore disowns him, after repeated labor extended." (3) He was restored to membership in 1783.
Because of this record, any of the descendants of Thomas Chapman are eligible for membership in the DAR or SAR.


Disowned by Quakers for participation in war efforts during the American Revolution and was restored membership 1783.

230 DEATH OF WM. J. LANDES A SEVERE BLOW TO COUNTY

TRUSTEE OF CARROLLTON TOWNSHIP DIED AT HOME EAST OF CITY OF FRIDAY

W. J. Landes, one of the most highly respected and widely known citizen-farmers of Carroll County, and trustee of Carrollton Township, died at his home east of this city Friday morning at 5:30 o'clock after a week's illness of pneumonia, complicated with other ailments from which he had been a sufferer for a number of years. Deceased met with an accident at Indianapolis Dec. 8, the results of which it is thought contributed largely to his death. He fell unconscious in attempting to alight from a street car and his injuries were of such a serious nature that he was confined in a hospital in that city for a week before being brought home. For some time after being brought home he was in a critical condition, at one period of his illness his friends fearing for the worst. But with careful nursing and the skill of the best physicians he gradually began to improve and several weeks ago there was such a marked change in his condition that he was able to leave his home and transact some official business connected with his office, and attend to the regular routine of home and farm affairs.

His many friends, however, began to hope for his ultimate recovery, but one week before his death he was stricken with pneumonia. A nurse was called and everything the nurse, physicians, family and friends could do was done to combat the disease, but he gradually grew worse until the end.

William Jasper Landes was a son of John and Julia A. Landes, and was born on the old Landes homestead in Carrollton Township, May 22, 1852, at the time of his death being 63 years, 9 months and 3 days of age. From birth he had resided continuously on the farm where he died, with the exception of a year's temporary residence with his family in California.

In his earlier life Mr. landes followed the profession of school teaching, and for twenty-seven years taught in the schools of the county. Many of the middle aged residents of Carrollton Township and other parts of the county can vividly recall many pleasant incidents connected with their school life when Mr. Landes was their instructor. In his day Mr. Landes was considered one of the foremost educators of the county and always took a leading part in any movement to promote the best interests of the public schools.

When only fifteen years of age deceased united with the Sharon Baptist Church and throughout his entire life lived a dedicated and faithful member. He was one of the most active members of the Sharon congregation and at the time of his death held the offices of Trustee and Deacon. For many years he was secretary of the Judson Baptist Association and through his untiring efforts and devotion to the work assigned him the Association grew to be one of the important factors in promoting the best interest of the church in many parts of the state.

At the time of his death deceased was Trustee of Carrollton Township and he was a careful and painstaking official whose whole aim was for the best interests of the schools and its patrons. For some time before his death, however, he was unable to transact the business connected with his office, the affairs of the office being left to others. In his earlier life Mr. Landes traveled quite extensively and was well informed on important topics.

He was a man of the highest moral, religious and intellectual character and the absence of his influence will be keenly felt in this community where he resided and the county at large.

By his careful business methods he had obtained a goodly share of this world's goods, at the time of his death owning one of the best farms in Carrollton Township.

Deceased leaves to mourn a wife and one daughter, Jessie; two brothers, Oscar of this city; and Frank of North Carolina, besides a large number of other relatives and friends. The funeral was conducted at the Sharon Baptist Church Sunday at 11 o'clock, conducted by the Rev. Essicks, pastor, and was largely attended, many relatives and friends coming from a distance. County Superintendent P. B. Hemming and the twelve township trustees, constituting the County Board of Education, attended the funeral as a body. Interment was made in the Sharon Cemetery.

241 Entered land in Section 3, Burlington Township, Carroll County, Indiana, October 22, 1832.

Was a co-founder of the town of Smithfield, Delaware Co., IN.
Smithfield, Indiana -- Smithfield, which still holds its place on the map, but whose dream of commercial importance long ago passed, was one of the very earliest contenders for commercial honors in the county, its projectors considering its position on White river as most advantageously designed for a trading point, and it did enjoy considerable distinction along this line until the coming of the railroad in the early '50s diverted its trade to the new railroad town of Selma which was established about a mile north. Smithfield was laid out by David Stout and William Duncan, joint proprietors, March 12, 1830, and the original plat covered four blocks, split north and south by Liberty street and east and west by Main street.
