Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you so much to the volunteers who not only list the information but also provide a photograph of the stones.

I'm 12th Generation American, directly decended from Thomas Chaffee (1635) and as such the Chaffee's and allied families are my interest.

The faq's are an amazing repository of information for FAG. You'll also learn a lot from the forums as well.

Do Not request transfers/corrections here they will be deleted. Please use the SAC feature by clicking the edit tab on the memorial needing correction.

To add an internal link in the biography, you would need to type
< a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=XXXXXXX">Name< /a>
(I put this here because I use it frequently and am tired of digging for it in the FAQ.)

Thanks to DaurRegt (#47891223) for the idea on putting the link on the profile.

Thanks.
I don't know you, and have no idea how you happened to add my father's grave to this site (Kenneth K. Steenbergen; memorial #57179482), but I thank you. I lost him quite suddenly and unexpectedly to a truck/train accident in 1967 (not quite halfway through my senior year in high school) and, as a result, grew up without the opportunity to know him as I grew into an adult. My mother passed at the end of 2012 so, although we were separated by humdreds of miles, I did have the pleasure of her in my life for a number of years thereafter.

Anyway, enough of my waxing maudlin - I am grateful that someone like you took the initiative to enter him in this system. FYI - I knew nothing about this Web site before today, when I stumbled upon it and was pleasantly surprised at what I found.

Kudos!!

Almon and Alonzo Chaffee
I noted that there is no stone marking a grave site for Alonzo. Almon's memorial was already marked previously. Do you still want the requests posted?

Alonzo Chaffe
Did your receive the message I sent to you about trying to find a stone for Alonzo? There apparently is some issues with that. I have looked twice for Alonzo's stone and have not been able to find. It was missing when the latest survey of the north side of the cemetery was done, as his name is not listed on the spread sheet I have. It was given to me by the person who cares for the cemetery now and has the original records. His name, though does appear in a book published in 1990 titled "Cemeteries of Steuben County" by Lewis. Therefore, there was once a stone. It is not standing now. Several of the Chaffee stones have been broken off at the base as they were tall and thin. There is also no stone standing for Almon. It was actually broken and loose from its base back in the early 1980's when Lewis's survey was done.
