The Chapman Roll was taken in 1851 by Alfred Chapman . This roll, which followed almost immediately the Siler Roll, was a result of many complaints by various Cherokees of having been omitted by Siler Siler added interesting family information on many of the enrollees - who was married to whom, who a child belonged to, full-blood, mixed, or white married to Cherokee. By studying the two rolls together you get a more complete picture of the families. Keep in mind that it was the Chapman Roll which was a major criteria for admittance to the Guion Miller Roll of Eastern Cherokees in 1906-1909. Be sure to visit the Siler Roll while you are viewing the Chapman Roll.
