From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George W. Chapman was an American lawyer and politician from New York.


He was born in Saratoga County, New York and lived in Ballston Spa, New York. In 1862, he was Supervisor of the Town of Milton. He was a member of the New York State Assembly in 1865.

In 1869, after the death of Oliver Bascom, Chapman was appointed by Governor John Thompson Hoffman a Canal Commissioner to fill the vacancy. In November 1870, he was elected, on the Democratic ticket, to succeed himself for the remainder of Bascom's term, and remained in office until the end of 1871. In 1871 he was defeated when running for re-election.
