I am searching for information of Francis Chappel born 1656
of long Island City,Queens NY.He was married to Martha Smith in 1680. She was the daughter of John ( Rock ) Smith
and Miss Stricland.In 1683 he was the town clerk of Hempstead Long Island ,NY
At about this time he was belived to have two sons born
about ( 1683 ) named William and Stephan. Does anyone have any information of any of the above.
John ( Rock ) Smith was one of the founders of Hempstead.
I am very interested in any items about Francis ,his sons and his mother and father.
If any one has any help for me in this matter it would be greatly appriceated. If I can find Francis ,s father I think I can tie him all the way back to England in 1557
Thanks again for any help
