      Text: Page 46. "The will of Robert Chapman of East Haddam is found in Colchester probate #701, dated 7 August 1750 and first sworn in Bolton 24 December 1760, indicating that the date of death on the stone is incorrect. It mentions wife (not named), sons David Chapman and Robert Chapman (both to be executors), four grandsons Jabez, Jonathan, Joseph, and John Chapman, sons Caleb Chapman and Francis Chapman, daughters Deborah Robinson and Sarah,. It was witnessed by Jabez Chapman, Thomas Bishop and Elizabeth Chapman (later Watrous). Partial distribution was made 6 June 1763 to the widow and to Mrs. Sarah Sanford, wife of Ebenezer; final distribution was on 6 February 1764 to all the children in order, mentioning heirs of son Jonathan deceased.

      Administration on the widow Mary Chapman was granted to David Chapman 2 July 1764 (Colchester probate #694) and distribution entered 31 October 1765 to each of the children as above. Each received the small sum of 0:2:2:1/4:1/2. (It is not clear whether that means one-fourth of a farthing plus one-half of a smaller division, or perhaps one-eighth of a farthing.)"
