Mrs. Chatfield is a direct descendant of Capt. Stephen and Freelove (Baldwin) Stowe, of Milford, Conn., the former of whom lost his life in caring for released Revolutionary soldiers from New York prisons. These soldiers were abandoned on Milford Point on account of having the plague, then epidemic in the prisons. Capt. Stowe took pity on them, and was the only one to house and care for them, his reward being his death from the disease.
