NEWSPAPER UNKNOWN, 23 December 1934
Sylvester "Dutch" CHAPPELL died at the home of his mother, Mrs. Jennie CHAPPELL, Sunday morning. He was taken ill with chicken pox on Tuesday, but his condition did not appear to be serious until Saturday
when pneumonia developed.

Sylvester CHAPPELL was born at Haddam,
Washington Co., KS, June 21, 1894, and after a very brief illness passed away Dec 23, 1934 at the age of 40 years, 6 months and 2 days.

His home has always been with his parents at Haddam, and he was always strong and rugged. His sudden death came as a great shock to the entire community.

Sylvester's interests in life have always centered
around his home, being especially interested in music which he began in early childhood.

His affection for birds and other living things was
unusual. He loved the fellowship of his friends and dear ones, taking much interest in the work about the home and the loving fellowship of his mother for many years.

In the great World War struggle as a good soldier he volunteered at an early date and served in the Navy on the B.S. Utah in 1918-1919.

He leaves to mourn his loss his mother, Mrs. Jennie CHAPPELL, one sister, Mrs. Jessie MAPES and two brothers, Lyndon and Preston all of Haddam, KS.

His father passed away in 1919 and his brother, Omar Porter, preceded him in death at Christmastime 1918.

There are other relatives and a host of friends and neighbors who share with the family in their great sorrow. An honorable funeral service in charge of his fellow comrades who served with him was held at Haddam Wednesday, Dec 26, and burial was made in the Haddam cemetery.
