S.D. Chapman, d-1907 now Grady Co OK

O. Lee Sturkey,

Solomon Dee Chapman. ..I will try to help you find more information, specifically an obituary, about your Solomon Dee Chapman (b-Feb 1, 1844 Greenville Dist, SC - lived Anderson Co SC - and d-Mar 4, 1907 Chickasha, now Grady County, OK, Rosehill Cemetery). ..Chickasha was located in [Old] Pontotoc County, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory. ..Oklahoma became a state on November 16, 1907.

I was born in Chickasha, raised on Rush Creek in Garvin County, but now live in Duncan, Stephens County, OK where all eight of my great-grandparents lived. ..Our Stephens County Genealogical Society has a rather extensive collection, housed in a building apart from the public library, that primarily addresses Pickens County of the Chickasaw Nation. ..Since the surrounding counties - save Comanche County - do not have a special building to house their genealogical and local histories, we strive to shelve materials about Cotton, Grady, Garvin, and Jefferson counties.

Quoting O. Lee Sturkey:

On another item of interest to me, I am trying to get information on Solomon Dee Chapman, a veteran of Company E (Bozeman Guards), Hampton Legion (S.C.) Infantry. He enlisted in that company on 15 Jun 61, but was discharged for disability from tuberculosis on 10 Sep 61. He subsequently reenlisted in E/16 S.C. on 27 Nov 61, and served in that unit throughout the war, receiving his parole at Greensboro, N.C. on 1 May 65, upon the surrender of Joe Johnston's army. Chapman was born in Grteenville District, S. C. on 1 Feb 44, was living in Anderson County, S.C. in 1870, later moved to Indian Territory (apparently through Texas), and died at Chickasha, Oklahoma (Terr; or had Oklahoma become a state by March?) 4 Mar 1907. He is buried in Rosehill Cemetery, Chickasha. I would like to locate an obituary or other information on him.
