chaffin Cemetery
Pamela ,

I have no problem visiting or finding Chaffin Cemetery . Although I would have to have my cousin Scott Sommer show me the location , since I have no idea where it is at .

It would have to be at his convienance , but I can go anytime .

This would be a good time to go, since the weeds are Down , however we have had a lot of rain the last week or so . It is a bit wet and muddy .

I will try to set up something , let me talk to Scott and see if he would have time to show up in the near future .

RE: Chaffin

Yes , my cousin is Scott Sommers ...I also had planned on having him show me the Cemetery as well ...but just haven't made it out there ...I hope to photo all the stones ...

I Am not a Chaffin descendant , and don't have any Chaffin blood , but there is a connection ..

Shadrick Chaffin married Julia ( Reynolds ) Hayward . Julia ( Reynolds ) Hayward was a widow of Moses Hayward Jr.

Moses Hayward Jr. Was a brother of my 3 x great grandfather Philip Smith Hayward , who was married to Henrietta ( Reynolds ) ....sister of Julia Reynolds ) Hayward Chaffin .

So....two Hayward brothers married two Reynolds sisters ..

Hello Pamela ,

I have been to one of CHAFFIN cemeteries , several years ago had only ( 3 ) stones in the cemetery ( according to the Cemetery archive )...this was the Cemetery with Dennis Chagrin , and parents Francis Chaffin and Sarah .

...I took photos ( along with Gail Merrill Wise ) of all ( 3 ) stones and added to find a grave ...

The other Chaffin Cemetery ( with Shadrach Chaffin, Julia ( Reynolds ) Hayward - Chaffin ) ....I have Not been to in person ...however my cousin had been there a couple years or so ago , and he took a couple photos , and I added his photos to findagrave ...

I plan ( or hope to plan ) , a return trip out that way , hopefully to take better photos of BOTH Chaffin Cemeteries ...

Keep you posted ...

Patrick Gobal Chafin and his wife Sarah Evan's only son, Solon Chafin, married my great aunt, Martha Jane Brewer (sister to my maternal grandmother Betty Mae Brewer Farra). Betty and Martha Jane's parents were Rev Calvin Brewer and his 2nd wife, Charlotte Spaulding.

RE: Chaffin Cemetery on Marrowbone Creek
Oh yes, I do the white chalk trick and I also carry a regular scrub brush to get off all the liken growth and dried mud before I chalk it. Brings the letters right out, and the next rain washes it off.
I would like to have pictures of the stones for the Baach family. Isaiah Lee Baach and his wife Sarah Chafin Baach and their children Estelle and Selwyn. Sarah was the daughter of Harrison and Sarah Brewer Chafin. There is a big family stone for the Baachs at Brewer Fitzpatrick, but I didn't have a chance to get many pictures around it last time I was there. I don't know if Estelle and Selwyn are there, but I know Isaiah and Sarah are near it. The family stone is right inside the fence near the dirt road about a third of the way up the hill. It's under some trees as I remember. Thanks so much for the offer.

RE: Chaffin Cemetery on Marrowbone Creek
Don't know if you got my email. I believe that Harrison Chafin's family would be in the Brewer Cemetery further up Marrowbone on the right, known now as the Brewer Fitzpatrick Cemetery. I have only been to that cemetery once and it's pretty big. Just didn't have enough time to see all of it that day. I'm only up to WV a few times a year, because I live in NC. Have you been to that cemetery?

In case you don't know, Harrison Chafin's other son, Patrick Gobal Chafin is buried almost right across the road from the Brewer Fitzpatrick Cemetery. I have put up that cemetery with pics of the stones.

If you do find Harry Chafin or others you mentioned in Brewer Fitzpatrick, I would love to have photos of the stones close enough to read if possible. I will put them up if you want me to, or you can. As long as they are documented, right?
