Chappell Family Ancestry

Charlotte (Chappell) Clark

Actually, none of these pictures was labelled, but we're pretty certain they are of Jesse's mother, Charlotte. Charlotte's parents were Aaron Chappell and Mary Mizen. Charlotte's siblings were: Jemima (born 1838), Aaron (born 1840), Louisa (born 1842), Ezra (born 1844), Eunice (born 1847), and William (born 1851). Her sister, Eunice, married Jonah Cook, and had the following children: Walter Henry Cook (born 1869), Jesse Cook (born 1871), Fanny Cook (born 1873), Louisa Cook (born 1876), Jane Cook (born 1879) and Fredrick Percy Cook (born 1881). We have this letter written in 1900 by Louisa (a/k/a "Louie") Cook to her cousin Jesse Chappell (Charlotte's son), and two later letters written August 4, 1930 and Dec. 21, 1930.
