Mary Elizabeth Hinshaw, daughter of Isaac and Elizabeth M. Hinshaw, was born in Monrovia, Indiana, on July 11, 1863. In 1867 they moved to Eudora, Kansas, and resided there until 1875, when she moved with her parents to Santa Rosa, Cal. In November, 1877, they moved to Klickitat county, which she resided until her death, which came on Christmas Day, 1925, she being 63 years, 5 months and 14 days of age.
She was united in marriage at Goldendale, Wash., to Arthur C. Chapman on Aug. 8, 1883, and in 1886 they moved to Columbus, Wash., now Maryhill, where they lived on a homestead until the fall of 1894, when they again moved to Goldendale, where they resided continually until her death.
In 1899 they engaged in the furniture business, which was conducted by them until 1920. They disposed of the business to their son, Merle W., and son-in-law, John R. McEwen in the fall of 1920, on account of inability caused by the deceased being stricken with paralysis, in April, and her husband been similarly stricken the following August.
The first years of her life in Klickitat county were truly pioneer, and was favorably known from one end of the county to the other.
She was a devout Christian since early childhood, and was a member of the Advent Christian church at Columbus, Wash. She will be greatly missed in the community, as she was always doing charitable work to the needy in a quiet and unassuming way.
In her passing the husband is bereft of a loving and devout companion; her children an affectionate mother; the community a hard worker for the welfare of others; and the county one of its old pioneers who helped to make this western country what it is today.
The last 14 months of her life she was an invalid, and was confined to her bed, but bore her affliction with a true Christian spirit.
She leaves to mourn her awakening at the Resurrection Day, her husband and five children; Floyd E., Merle W., Roy B., and Mrs. John R.McEwen, of Goldendale, and Chester A., of Los Angeles, Cal. Also two brothers, T.T. Hinshaw of White Salmon, and Vernon T. of Newberg,Ore.; and three sisters, Mrs. W.E. White and Mrs. Ida Clayson ofNewberg, Ore., and Mrs. Laura Wright of Portland, Ore. Six grandchildren also survive.
Funeral services were held on Monday, Dec. 28, at the Chapman Mortuary Chapel, at 2:00 o’clock p.m., the services being conducted by Elder C.E. Bennett of Lebanon, a friend of many years. Interment took place on the family plot in the I.O.O.F. cemetery.
Arthur died Mar 29 1928, Goldendale, Klickitat County, Washington; buried Mt. View Cemetery, Goldendale, Klickitat County, Washington.6,7,8

A biographical sketch of Arthur C. Chapman appeared in the 1904 book "An Illustrated History of Klickitat, Yakima and Kittitas Counties":10
ARTHUR C. CHAPMAN, ex-county treasurer of Klickitat county, Washington, and now engaged in the furniture business in the city of Goldendale, was born in Mauchehunk, the county seat of Carbon county, Pennsylvania, April 11, 1861. His father, William Chapman, is a native of England, born in 1836, and married in the old country. He is a physician, also a minister of the Advent-Christian church. He came to the United States in 1854, settling first in New York, from which he soon afterward removed to Iowa, becoming a pioneer of the latter state. In 1878 he came to Klickitat county and took a homestead, upon which he lived until 1890, when he moved to Seattle and engaged there in the practice of his two professions. He was government physician at Fort Simcoe during the years 1884 and 1885, and while residing in Klickitat county also practiced medicine. At the time of his arrival in the county the Indians were on the rampage in Idaho and Oregon, on account of which the settlers of Washington were thoroughly alarmed. In fact, a majority of them removed with their families either to Goldendale or The Dalles. Mr. Chapman and a companion were engaged in herding sheep on Rock creek at the time, and one day a band of renegade Klickitats surrounded them. For four days the white men were imprisoned. Their relief was accomplished by Father Wilbur, the Yakima Indian agent, who came unarmed from Fort Simcoe, held a pow-wow with his wards and succeeded in dispersing them. Mrs. Chapman's maiden name was Elizabeth S. Newman. She was born in Birmingham, England, September 3, 1836, and married February 14,1854. The aged couple celebrated their Golden wedding February 14, 1904. Arthur C., the subject of this sketch, was educated in the schools of Iowa, and was nineteen years old when he came with his parents to Klickitat county. He farmed on the homestead until his marriage in 1883, then engaged in the grocery business in Goldendale for a period of three years, afterwards returning to farming. Eight years later, as the candidate of the Republican party, he was elected county treasurer and moved his residence to Goldendale; that was in 1894. So satisfactory were his official services that he was accorded the indorsement of a re-election in 1896, serving until January I, 1899. After the expiration of his second term, Mr. Chapman engaged in his present business. Few men in the county are more familiar with grain than he, as he was for thirteen years a grain buyer at Columbus. Among his possessions is a valuable fruit farm on the Columbia river. Mr. Chapman's marriage was celebrated August 8, 1883, the bride being Miss Mary Hinshaw, a native of Morgan county, Indiana, born in 1863. When twelve years old she was taken to California by her parents and three years later came to Klickitat county. Her parents are Isaac and Elizabeth (Hadley) Hinshaw, who are among Klickitat's pioneer citizens. Mrs. Chapman has seven brothers and sisters, Tunis T., Vernon T., Elmer F., Orie, Ella, Laura and Ida. Mr. and Mrs. Chapman have a family of six bright children, of whom Floyd is the oldest and Chester A. the youngest. The others are Veva M., Merle M., Orell C., and Roy B. Mr. Chapman is a member of the Advent-Christian church, and, fraternally, is connected with the Order of Washington. His wife belongs to the Women of Woodcraft. He is an ardent Republican. His fellow townsmen have shown their confidence in him by electing him city councilman; also, a school director for a number of terms. The cause of education specially interests him, and considerable of his time has been given to the betterment of Goldendale's schools. He is an energetic, progressive and straightforward man, and is making a success of his business. He commands the respect and esteem of his fellow men.
