Chappell, Henry Clay
HENRY CLAY CHAPPELL.
On April 26, 1921, H. C. Chappell answered the last roll call at Paineville, Amelia County, Va., in the seventy-sixth year of his age.
He enlisted in the Confederate army as a member of Company E, 25th Virginia Battalion, at the age of eighteen, and served at Fort Harrison, Drewry's Bluff, was captured at Sailor's Creek and sent to Point Lookout, Md. Three children survive him: Mrs. H. T. Pearson, of Danville, Va.; W. B. Chappell, of Inglewood, Cal.; and E. R. Chappell, of Portland—all of whom were with him when the end came.
