  • The last name is found spelled three different ways in the sources andgenealogies: Chapel, Chappel, Chappell.  The name occurs with thestandard spelling like the word Chapel in some sources among Jenkinsfamily members. So I have followed that spelling.  I found a fourthspelling in the death certificate of Archie and Mary's son Jeremiah(Jerry), where it appears as Chapil.  The certificate is also signedby the informant, Jerry's son Abe, using the same spelling for his ownlast name.
