About Simon Chapman

A Patriot of the American Revolution for VERMONT. DAR Ancestor # A020965

When Simon married Alice Hazen Rouse, the divorcee of John Rouse, he and Alice settled in a plot of Hazen land divided by Christian St. at the bottom of Dothan Road. He built a one-room permanent dwelling in 1779 that still stands and ran a blacksmith shop. Blacksmith artifacts were found on the property late in the 20th century. Upon Simon's death in 1792 and Alice's in 1799 this property was turned over to another Hazen daughter, Alice's niece Mary, and her husband David Newton in 1802.

Simon served as a private in the Revolutionary militia under Capt. Joshua Hazen as many men living near the Hazen farm did following the raid on Royalton.
