THE CHATFIELD STORY
"Isaac Newton Chatfield "married Elizabeth "Lizzie" Mead on February 1, 1877, in Bonfield, Illinois. The couple resided in the family stone house for 13 years, managing their farm and giving birth to three children.
• Eunice Prudentia Chatfield
• Newton Leslie Chatfield
• Laura Avery Chatfield
Newton and his family moved to Littleton, Colorado, in 1890, where Newton purchased a grocery store downtown shortly after their arrival. Newton operated his grocery store for 10 years, a community leader and trustee of the Littleton Presbyterian Church before moving north to Fort Collins at the turn of the century, where Newton served as Colorado Agricultural College's custodian of the Chemistry Department for the next 21 years. Lizzie died in Fort Collins on May 25, 1918. In 1921, while attempting to board a trolley, Newton, then 72 years old, fell and broke his hip. Two years later he left Fort Collins to live with his daughter Laura in California. Laura had earned her Master's Degree and was teaching school in Woodland, California. Newton died in Bakersfield, California on May 25, 1926."

"Dec 22, 1921, Fort Collins Courier, Larimer Co., Colordo:
Chemistry Building at College Destroyed by Fire Early this Morning; Origin Unknown.
Fire that broke out shortly after 2 o'clock gutted the old Chemistry building on the [Colorado Agricultural] college campus Thursday morning, leaving it a mash of smoldering ruins….Chemicals stored in the building caught fire and burned with celerity; combustibles cracked and popped, the brilliant scene holding the attention of more than 100 spectators who gathered within a few minutes. Flames of every color were discernible…. Uncle I.N. Chatfield, who has been caretaker of the Chemistry building at the college since it was built 23 years ago, is mourning the burning of the building and the loss of all the valuable things contained therein, like unto a father mourning for his firstborn. In the basement where many cans of samples of different things, all number, so that the professors could say, "Uncle, get a sample of number so and so," and Uncle Chatfield could locate the required sample from his orderly rows and cans without a moment's hesitation. Valuable papers and priceless data, the result of years of research were also burned."
