Biographical history

Alaric B. Chapin, 1847-1924, was born in Oswegatchie, New York, USA. During the American Civil War he enlisted in the Union Army. During an attack on a Confederate fort in 1865, he voluntarily placed himself in an exposed position in order to cut holes in an enemy palisade. He was finally awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for this action in 1914. Following the war, he moved to Wisconsin, then to Minnesota. He married Mary Smith and had three sons and two daughters. One of the sons, O.S. Chapin, operated the Chapin Company, an automobile and tractor dealership in Calgary, Alberta. He died in Portland, Oregon.
