Rev. Seth Chapin was the son of Seth and Eunice Chapin, of Mendon, Mass.; and was born June 25, 1783. His father was an officer in the Revolutionary Army, and was stationed, a portion of the time, in Rhode Island, being engaged in Sullivan's celebrated expedition. The son pursued his studies, preparatory for college, under the Rev. Dr. Crane, of Uxbridge, entered Brown University in 1804, graduated in 1808, studied theology at Andover, which place he left in 1811 ; and in November of that year was installed as pastor of the church in Hillsboro, N. H. Here he remained until 1816; and the following three years were spent in Rowley, Mass., Mansfield, Conn., and elsewhere. In 1819, he was settled in Hanover, and remained until 1824, after which he preached in East Haddam, Conn., Hunter, N. Y., Attleboro, Mass., and Granville, Mass. In 1845, ne relinquished the duties of his profession, and engaged in agricultural pursuits, with such ardor and success.

He married Mary Bicknell, second daughter of the Hon. Joshua Bicknell, of Barrington, May 28, 1810 her father having been for more than fifty years prominent in the councils of the State; and a man of such unflinching political integrity as to have received the title of 'old Aristides.' By this marriage he had two sons, the elder of whom, Henry, graduated at Brown University in 1835, received the degree of L. L. B., at Harvard College, in 1838, and settled as a physician in Providence, R. I. The younger son read law with the Hon. A. C. Greene, of Rhode Island, and settled in Alabama, where he died September II, 1836, at the early age of 21. Mr. Chapin, the father, died in Providence, R. I., April 19, 1850, age 67. His widow survived and resided with her son in Providence. As a preacher, Mr. Chapin was earnest and faithful; his discourses being instructive and copiously illustrated. As a scholar, he was diligent and studious; and several of his occasional productions were published. He was successful in his calling; a man of usefulness, and indomitable perseverance ; and he left behind him a good name as an inheritance for his surviving son.
