  • Physical Description

    Isiah is 5'11" and of medium build, but yet he is one solid muscle.  He has soulful blue eyes with a bit of sadness behind them and brown hair with reddish tints, especially highlighted during the summer months when the sun bleaches it more while working outside.  His hands are calloused and dirty from his hard work on the farm.  You'll most always find him wearing a flannel shirt, blue jeans and work boots.

  • Timeline

    March 21, 1845: Born to Hiram and Ledocia Chappel in Pigeon Forge, TN

    1847: Baby sister, Adelaide is born.  We are close in age and because of this our relationship is close.  Being the youngest two in the family we learned right along side each other from our older brothers. 

    1851: Mother passes away. 

    1855: Started helping Pa with the family shipping business doing what I love most - working with my hands and helping to repair and assist with whatever may have needed mending.

    1862: Started courting Daisy Patten from our local church.  Fell in love quickly and after courting for just one year we were married much to her father's chagrin.  Her family was quite wealthy as he owned his own land and farm. 

    1863: Married Daisy under the condition that we would live on her father's farm and I would assist as a farm laborer while also continuing to help my father with the family business. 

    1864: Joined the Civil War fighting with the Confederate Army.  I served as an infantryman during the war alongside my brothers.  When I joined two of my brothers had already been killed in the war and I wanted to do what I could to help fight for what our family believed in and to be with my other two remaining brothers.  The war lasted about another year and it was October 1864 that my regiment,  which included myself and brother, were caught in a battle near Chattanooga.  We fought valiantly but Joshua was injured....bad injured.  I rushed to him, pulled him and myself out of the line fire and did what I could to help him.  Frantically trying to stop the bleeding from his chest he finally stopped me...he knew what was about to happen and he wanted me to just sit with him.  Hold him.  Hold him until he could take his last breath.  It was a day that will forever be etched in my memory, a day that haunts me.

    1865: Returned home from the Civil War and tried to get back to some kind of 'normal' though I'm certain I will never be normal again after serving in the war - holding one brother in my arms while he died and losing 4 others. 

    1872: After years of trying to get pregnant and two miscarriages later Daisy and I welcome a son, Joshua Chappel into the world.  I, of course, had to name him after my brother.

    1875: Another year of hardship for me.  Daisy had taken ill and the doc suspected it was cholera.  She passed away just 5 years after welcoming our boy, leaving me a widow and Joshua with no mother....it felt as if history was repeating itself.

    1875: This same year I couldn't stand to stay in Pigeon Forge no longer.  I needed to get away from it all.  Find a new start, a new way of life and find the one person that seems to understand me.  Heading out west would provide both.  Addy had been living in Kalispell for some time now and I planned on taking Joshua and heading there to find her...start new.
