Welcome to The Chicken Coop!

“Maybe you’ll find an egg or two!”
To forget one’s ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root.

The story behind the statue is that it was commissioned by a railroad tycoon and a congressman from Springfield, Massachusetts, Chester W. Chapin, who was also a direct descendant of Deacon Samuel Chapin, one of the early settlers of Springfield, Massachusetts.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the sculptor, was born in France and raised in New York City.

How many ancestors do we have?
“Direct lineage on your family tree is just that – you – your parents – your grandparents – great grandparents – great great grandparents, etc. You do not count aunts, uncles, cousins as direct ancestors but rather as extended family line, just as important but just examining direct lines can be sometimes a bit overwhelming.” Familytree.com
