2.  1860 Census Index/Images (online at Genealogy.com):  not found, but I certainly didn't check every William or Henry CHAPMAN everywhere.  In the 1860 census of Yuba Co., CA (p. 506), there is a William H. CHAPMAN (æ 31, b. NY, unmarried, occupation constable), living in the United States Hotel in Marysville.  Could our subject have gotten "gold fever"?
