Listed on the National Gravesite Locator as Ebenzer. I'm awaiting confirmation of what the stone says but I'm pretty sure his name was Ebenezer.

The first subscription recorded at the Indianapolis Liberty Loan headquarters was made by Ebenezer T. Chaffee, an old soldier living at the National Soldiers' Home at Marion, Indiana. He subscribed for a one-hundred-dollar bond. "I can't fight now, — but my money can", Chaffee was quoted as saying."
