Here's the best I can find:
Benjamin Chapman
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For other people with the same name, see Ben Chapman.
Benjamin Chapman
Born 1621
unknown (possibly County Kerry, Ireland)
Known for Patriarch of the Chapman baronets of Killua Castle
Title Captain
Spouse(s) Anne Parkinson
Children William Chapman
Thomas Chapman
Parent(s) William Chapman
Captain Benjamin Chapman (born 1621) was the patriarch of the Chapman baronets of Killua Castle.
Chapman was a Cornet in the regiment of cavalry raised by Murrough O'Brien, 1st Earl of Inchiquin. He was later promoted to Captain, and served in the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland. After the conquest, Oliver Cromwell granted Chapman an estate in the county of Westmeath, at Killua (also known as St. Lucy's), a former preceptory of the Knights Hospitallers.[1]
Chapman's father, William, and uncle, John, had been supported by their maternal first cousin, Sir Walter Raleigh, who helped them procure land grants in the County Kerry. Due to financial troubles and their patron Raleigh's death in 1618, they were forced to sell the land to Richard Boyle, 1st Earl of Cork, for 26,400.[1] Benjamin was William's only son.
Chapman married Anne, daughter of Robert Parkinson (esq. of Ardee). They had two sons, William and Thomas. William remained with his father at St. Lucy's and married Ismay, daughter of Thomas Nugent (esq. of Clonlost). Thomas emigrated to America.[1]
Notable descendants[edit]
T. E. Lawrence ("Lawrence of Arabia"), illegitimate son of Sir Thomas Chapman, 7th Baronet[2]

RE: James Overton Turner
Thank you so much! Linda Stanley is going to look up her information when she has a chance. I was with Linda and Doris today. We did a Veteran's Memorial Day ceremony in Rocky Mount. I am the president of the Jubal Early Chapter of the UDC, but I didn't think to ask Doris. It seems like the marker dedication was around 1999-2000. I will pour through the old newsletters. Our editor, Linda Nezbeth, does a fantastic job with those. At the time of the marker dedication, (if it was in 1999-2000) I belonged to the Mildred Lee Chapter and later transferred my membership. I know what you mean about sources, by the way!

James Overton Turner
Dear Ms. Dyer,

I was wondering if you had directions to the James Overton Turner homeplace and his marker? He is my husband's 2x great grandfather. My husband's great aunt once told us that he was buried outside the Danville, VA tobacco warehouse he died in. Then, when the new high school was built, that area was just plowed up, with no regard for the bodies buried there. Have you ever heard this? Thank you in advance for any help that you may give me.

RE: re info for isaac N. Haynes and Ann Stone
Rebecca, thank you for responding so quickly. My sister and I live in South Carolina. It does look like what Wanda was looking for. I will forward the messages on to her or she can see it on find a grave. You seem to have a lot of information on them. Wanda is the one who is so heavily into ancestry. I get confused about it. She also said that Little Berry Stone is an indian, but she couldn't find anything more about him, not even what tribe he was. Thank you for your help.

Our maternal grandmother is dora ellen Griffith Kirby. Her grandmother would be virginia haynes howell who married thomas howell. her great grandmother would be ann stone haynes who married isaac newton haynes. her great great grandmother would be nancy hurt stone who married Little Berry Stone. If you can help us in any way, my email address is Thank you in advance for any information.

Sink Family
Soon did not mean to send yet! I don't know who you mean that I have been in contact with about the Sink Family. I correspond with lots of people and don't understand who you are referring to. There is a lot of missing data, pictures etc on Abraham and Henry Silas Sink. I have family members that need to be added. Are you the one I need to send these to. I also have links that need to be added.

My mother was Easel Sink. She is daughter of Jesse Henry Sink, son of John Richard Sink who was son of George Ellis Sink. George was son of Abraham Sink who was son of Henry Silas Sink to Abraham Sink. I grew up in Botetourt County and spent many Sundays at the Sink Homes in Franklin County. I had a lot of pictures of these graves and they have disappeared. I have a cousin that maybe can help me on the pictures.

Just got your message. I think you are talking about Allen Lane Family?? I know he is on vacation now and hopefully I will be able to talk to him when he returns. He lives in Florida and so do I. I too am the family historian. Have been for 30 years.

My goal is to get the ancestors organized and good data on them so future generations can know their family. Data on Ancestry is good but I find that Find A Grave comes to life and makes our ancestors come to life.

Thank you for your help and let me know how I need to convey new information and who will be the person to make the changes and additions.

Thank you so much. By the way, what is your DAR Chapter. Mine is Captain Alexander Quarrier out of Fort Lauderdale, FL. My Cousin, who is from the Stephen Sink line is the current Regent.

Thank you again,
Brenda Booze

Updates will be forthcoming. My wife's grandmother was a Helm. She and I spent lots of time talking about her family history.
