Permelia Hart is not the daughter of Nathan Chapman. I know the book Counties of Whitley and Noble, Indiana: Historical and Biographical page 165 mistakenly names Permelia Hart as the daughter of Nathan. The daughter of Nathan is Permelia Armaneta Chapman Scott. Nathan's wife Laura's will states as such:
Whitley County, Indiana Will Record 3 Page 92. Laura A. Chapman of Whitley Co., Indiana, widow of Nathan Chapman, deceased. To Parmelia A. Scott, daughter; William Hazzard Chapman, land, but in trust for his children who survive him. Nathan Heber Chapman, gr-son. To gr-sons Lanty S. Cassel, Pheortis O. Cassel. Iantha Bell Lawrence, a gr-dau. who has cared for me since disabled. Ex. nom. John Q. Adams of Thorncreek Township. He to erect a tombstone at my grave similar to one I placed on my deceased husbands grave.
Here is the listing of all of Laura and Nathan's children.
