Mrs. B. L. Chapman, a former resident of Waterford, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. N. W. Pursel in Brantford, on Thursday last. She came to Brantford from her home in Ridgetown intending to have an operation, but died before going to the hospital.

Mrs. N. W. Pursel of Brantford is her only child and her only surviving brother is Mr. Wm. Cunningham. Her half brothers and sisters are Messrs. Oscar, Walter, Romaine and Albert McMichael and Mrs. Oliver Beemer and Miss Dora McMichael. 

Her husband predeceased her 11 years. Mr. Chapman was proprietor of the Waterford Express before the Star was started in this place in 1874.
