Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you so much to the volunteers who not only list the information but also provide a photograph of the stones.

I'm 12th Generation American, directly decended from Thomas Chaffee (1635) and as such the Chaffee's and allied families are my interest.

The faq's are an amazing repository of information for FAG. You'll also learn a lot from the forums as well.

Do Not request transfers/corrections here they will be deleted. Please use the SAC feature by clicking the edit tab on the memorial needing correction.

To add an internal link in the biography, you would need to type
< a href="">Name< /a>
(I put this here because I use it frequently and am tired of digging for it in the FAQ.)

Thanks to DaurRegt (#47891223) for the idea on putting the link on the profile.

RE: Carpenters in Eaton's Bush
Just visited Eaton's Bush Cemetery in NY State where I took many photos. I noticed many discrepancies between the official? records and the dates on the markers. I don't know which are more accurate, ie:
Find A Grave Memorial# 49480319 - Nathaniel Carpenter - year of birth is listed as 1777 but marker clearly shows 1771
Find A Grave Memorial# 49480320 - Elizabeth Carpenter - year of death is listed as 1832 but marker looks like 1852
I've suggested edits; edit per your discretion.
Thank you,

Chaffee's at Wright Cem. IN
Please know that I was able to locate several grave markers for the Chaffee family buried at Wright Cemetery in Steuben Co. IN. Pictures posted. The majority are broken from their bases or on the ground in pieces. Several are neatly stacked with about a dozen stones in the middle of the grounds. I ran out of time before I could look at all the stones there. Have yet to find a marker for Alonzo. Will try again next week.

RE: F. Marie Chaffee
Hi, I found Friedricka Marie Krueger Chaffee's husband.
He was William R Chaffee.
Born 1863 in Windsor, Broome County, New York, USA
They were married in 1899 in Erie County, New York, USA.
William died on February 25, 1913 in Ouaquaga, Broome, New York, USA.
William's parents were Azotus Zote Chaffee and Mary Jane Tomkins of Broome County, New York, USA

Friedricka Marie Krueger Chaffee came to Grand Rapids Michigan to be near her brother John H Krueger and his wife Viola Prentice Krueger.

Friedricka Marie Krueger Chaffee was my Great Paternal Aunt.
