===========================
Charles Henry Chatfield passed away in 1942. During the funeral procession the only thing his wife had to say was, "Serves the drunken old fool right." Unwilling to pardon him for gambling away the family fortune some thirty years before, she had him buried in the non-Catholic section of the cemetery (away from the family plots) at the back corner of the cemetery tool shed.

In July of 2003 my brother Gordon Clemens and I bought our grandfather a headstone. There was room on the plaque, so we added "Son of Isaac W. Chatfield" as a nice touch. We knew full well that adding "Beloved Husband of Nellie" would have our grandmother roll over in her grave, but we thought it a fine idea.
