Notes for Roxanna Chappell
“Roxanna Chappell, 1791 - 1852, wife of Marcus Miers. Buried at Higgins
Cemetery, Old Baptist Cemtery on hill opposite home of Leonard Giles -
completely overgrown with a few stones remaining. (From the Book -
Cemeteries of North Cumberland, by Joyce Wills. Cemetery #56B, page 325.)

I am still trying to find where the marriage date came from. It was
passed on to me, but no source. But if she was born 1791, she would only
be 13 years old on her wedding date, and 14 when her first child, Mary
was born in 1805.

If she was born in 1773, she would be 31 on her wedding date, and 32
when she started her family. That is a very late time, for back in the
1800's. Most girls got married between 16 - 25.

She died before the 1871 census, so that is no help. If she was 19 on
her wedding date, she would be born about 1785. If Priscilla is a
daughter and born 1784, then maybe Roxanna was born 1785 - 1786, and
Hannah born 1787 or 1788.”176
