A different light has been cast on your information above though, since E C Shephard's (and that's what his family called him) grandson sent me his birth certificate, as well as family history information his grandfather wrote in his own hand.
So yes, you and I are cousins. There were 10 children in Nathaniel and Elizabeth Chapin's family - most of them also had children. So we have a lot of Chapin cousins out there just from this branch of the Chapin family alone.
I think that's neat. However, it seems to bother you.
