Brimfield, April 22 - The body of John Leonard Chaffee, who died Sunday at his home at Fiskdale, was brought for burial to Brimfield cemetery Wednesday afternoon. More than 20 years ago he lived at Brimfield on what was formerly the Russell place on the Fiskdale road. He was a stone mason by trade. When living at Brimfield, he was superintendant of streets. Mr Chaffee was born at Monson in June 1849, the son of John and Betty (Pease) Chaffee. He leaves his widow.
Note: The name of John's mother is actually Persis Pease. His sister's name was Betsy so this part of the obituaryis wrong. The widow that is mentioned is Delia M. Mark who he married on Dec. 10, 1912. Delia and John were living in Sturbridge, MA with Delia on the 1930 Federal Census.
