Straboard

1850 woodframe with brick chimney. Chimney supported by unknown structure. Brick chimney starts 3 ' up from first floor and runs up through roof a total of 15'. Chimney 2' by 2'square with copper cap.
Structure supporting chimney is a concern and damp to touch. Exterior of chimney sealed with silicone.
Can I construct a more solid chimney support?
