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="">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.

Newspaper Query
You may be the most qualified person to answer this.

Bob Dyer's column in the Akron Beacon Journal contains this query:

Some 28 years ago, while living in South Akron, my husband, while digging up our yard for a garden, dug up a large headstone.

When we moved to Ellet, the headstone, unbeknownst to me, came along.

Long story short: My husband passed away five years ago and that headstone is in my backyard. Iíve been afraid to say anything, thinking I may get into trouble.

Itís inscribed ďBelle, dtr of H W and M L Chaffee,Ē and itís large and marble.

The link to the story is: or use

I have a photo that clearly shows 1876 as the year of death. I requested an edit and can upload that photo if you'd like.

This individual is buried at Hickory Grove Cemetery. The date of death is her date of birth. If the information you have has her married to William Freddie Chancellor then this is the same person. I added a head stone picture and you can see her birth and death dates. Could you correct the information? If this is not the same person then I will delete the photo. Thank you for your time and attention.

Thank you for editing the name of my Aunt Jerline.

I hate to ask again, but I just noticed that in the description you have added the following as a note: Dau of Walter and Georgina

Grandma's name was Georgia M.

When you have time, would you edit the note to correct the spelling?

Thanks for your work,

Amanda Chaffee
The site I am writing about is Memorial #33346993, Amanda Melvina Chaffee Beeman.

I am searching for a friend [we are both Daughters of the Union Veterans of the Civil War.]. We are trying to find a primary source, proof...that Amanda is the daughter of Otis Chaffee and 1st wife, Grace Whipple. We believe she is but would like to see if there is proof.

Many Thanks..
Nancy Soper
