Rebecca Peace was born about 1767? in MA., PA. or VA. She married John Chapman in 1788 in Maysville, Mason Co., Kentucky. She had a brother named Nathaniel that gave her a silver snuff box when he went the Revolutionary War.
That's all I know about Rebecca before her marriage to John. John was the son of Thomas Chapman and Margaret Mitchell Verity of Bucks CO. PA, grandson of Abraham Chapman and Susan Olden and g-grandson of John Chapman & Jane Sadler, who were among the first white settlers of Bucks County and founder of the Bucks County Monthly Meeting of the Quakers.
John & Rebecca moved on to Adams County Ohio and raised 10 children. John died in 1838 in Meigs Twp., Adams Co. I don't have death date for Rebecca.
Many of their children stayed in Ohio, others moved on to Indiana.
Rebecca has been a brick wall for to long. If any one can connect,something sounds familiar or can maybe give me an idea of where the Peace family started in America, I would really appreciate it. I have a lot of history on Rebecca and John's descendents, especially Joseph Peace Chapman's line. Would so love to make this connection. This line also has a Jay family connection.
