Apple of his eye



Cape Elizabeth resident Kathryne Clay, 8, a second grader at Pond Cove Elementary school, had an opportunity to meet John Chapman, a direct descendant of Johnny “Appleseed” (also named John Chapman). She helped Chapman plant an apple tree at Viles Arboretum in Augusta that can be traced back to one of Johnny Appleseed’s original orchards in Ohio.
