Chapman, John (c. 1819–1897)

One of the oldest settlers in the Macleay district, in the person of Mr. John Chapman, of Euroka, died recently. It is said the deceased came to the Macleay about the year 1836 or 1837, and was, perhaps, one of the very first white men who settled in those parts. Mr. Chapman was 78 years of age, and died of senile decay. He leaves a family of two daughters and four sons.
