Fort Collins Weekly Courier (Fort Collins, Larimer County); Date: Dec 6, 1900; Page: 2

The Courier is indebted to Geo. C. Burnham of San Diego, California, for a copy of the Union of that city, dated November 29th, containing the following notice of the death of a former well known Fort Collins citizen:

The death of Fred K. Chaffee occurred yesterday afternoon at the Horton house after an illness which had confined him to his bed for little more than a week.

Mr. Chaffee was a native of Massachusetts where he was born forty years ago. He came to San Diego about two years ago from Colorado and for some time he was chief clerk at the Florence Hotel. This summer he has been living in the mountains in the hope that his health might be improved there. The immediate cause of death was hemorrhages of the lungs. He was a member of San Diego lodge, No. 168, B. P. O. Elks, and the lodge will have charge of the funeral which will take place from the lodge rooms, Sixth street, tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.
