Surnames: Chappell -Benge -Black Fox -Ruminer - Miser - Whitfield
An author, researcher, in Mt. View, AR, has informed me that my 3rd gr-grandfather, Elijah Chappell, of Mt. View, was the s/o John Wm. Chappell and Mary Rebecca "Polly" Benge, d/o of Chief Robert Benge and Nancy Black Fox.

And, that Chief John Watts/Chief Duwali Bowles was the great-uncle of Elijah. (Photos attached)

Elijah married Elizabeth Ruminer in Independce Co., AR, in 1843, and they were the parents of my gg-grandmother, Susan (Chappell) Miser, mother of Tennie (Miser) Whitfield, my g-grandmother.

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might have or know of info regarding these families.

Many thanks.
