1917 was an eventful year for the Chapman’s. W.D. had the flu and nearly died, there was a depression and he lost his business but on October 4 they were all sealed in the Temple.
In 1928 he was operating a variety store in Park City, Utah then in 1938 they moved to Highland (#22 on the 1958
Highland map - interactive, larger). They were very active in the Church-he held seven callings at one time, including Superintendent of the YMMIA. He also served on the Stake High Council.
In 1943 they sold their farm to Yukus Inouye, a sale that was very controversial among the neighbors since Yukus was Japanese and the war was still raging. Yukus tells that he was treated with every dignity and respect and Chap gave him courage and understanding. Inouye’s called him father Chapman. Yukus lived in their basement for a short while as his decision to buy their farm was very sudden and he had to get his crops in.
Chapman’s moved to Lindon, Utah and at about the same time he became field man for Pleasant Grove Canning Company and kept that position for twelve years. He became the first Mayor of Lindon when it was incorporated.
They were called to serve in the Southwest Indian Mission in 1956. Pearl died April 14, 1969 and W.D. died October 27, 1976.
