These pages were created by Gavin Horning-Kane for his Capstone project at Parish Hill High School. The purpose was to make historic documents relating to the town of Chaplin more accessible to anybody interested in the town’s history. Below is Ben Chaplin’s original will. At the bottom of the page is a link to a transcription (in progress) of that original will. The Capstone research paper can also be found below. You may click on an image to view it in more detail. Hit next at the bottom of the page to see historic photos of Chaplin.
