William Chapman was my great, great uncle. He came to South Australia with his parents and three of his siblings, from England, on the Asiatic in 1849.
My Mum has had this newspaper clipping for as long as I can remember. Growing up I always knew that this was someone in our family. As the article says William was a letter carrier for 35 years. His father, also William, was a letter carrier for 39 years.
