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.

Marshall NELLIS
In Marshall's obituary it is noted that he is buried next to his first wife. Delphine WHITMAN Nellis was his first wife, do you know it there is a marker for Marshall next to her a the cemetery?

Thank you for transferring his gravesite which made editing much easier.

My interest in him came from finding his Martin guitar for sale at Mandolin Brothers in Staten Island. Pictures and hand written documents with it led me to research the guitar's owner's impressive story.

The guitar pictures and documents link:

His biography from Coal Age Magazine July 6, 1912 p.11-12:

His daughter picture:

and her obituary:

I haven't found her grave which may be in Montrose, PA.

George Chaffee # 148509775 parents were Adrian classmates and ministeral friends of George and Doris Chaffee. George was best man at my parents wedding. In their album I have a 1966 photo of George, Doris and family taken in Byron, Michigan while visiting my parents. Would you like a digital version of the picture? I could attach it to their memorial but since the children are living, I wasn't sure if I should. I hate to just throw it away if someone would like it. Thanks, Jeri Taylor

Capt. Samuel Cobb Norris
Memorial # 23854076

Hello, I am wondering if I may use the photo you added to the memorial page for Capt. Samuel Cobb Norris in my private family tree and your source for the photo. Are you related to the Cobb/Norris line? I have a lot of info I would be happy to share if you are. I would of course if allowed to copy the photo attributed it to yourself and I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much. Maria

Elisha Benton & Jemima Barrows
I love your write up on Elisha Benton & Jemima Barrows and thought you would be interested in knowing that we have written a historical novel about Elisha & Jemima, Called Forever, Side by Side. We presented it to Tolland, CT and The Tolland Historical Society at the 300th Anniversary of Tolland on Sept 19, 2015. I have enclosed the back cover to let you know what the book is about. As a couple and a small colonial town all sacrificed so much for our freedom and this story had to be told.



In 1774, the closing of Boston’s port by the British fanned outrage across the New England colonies. The farmers of Tolland, Connecticut drove sheep to relieve the suffering of their fellow subjects. Within months they would march on Boston again – this time shouldering arms in response to the Lexington Alarm.

Among them was Elisha Benton, 1st born son of one of the town’s founding families. The rebellion tore him from his betrothed. Jemima Barrows was but 15, yet it was her family’s low station that fueled Benton opposition to the match. If Elisha and Jemima were to wed, the patriarch’s objections must be overcome, and Elisha must survive the war.

Their courageous actions also serve as a metaphor for the contributions of countless others. As such, Forever, Side By Side is a bittersweet celebration of a colonial era couple, and the people of New England who forged American independence.

“Every local third grader, and every visitor to the Daniel Benton Homestead Museum, has heard the brief legend of Elisha Benton and Jemima Barrows and seen their graves. Many visit with the hope of catching a glimpse of their spirits. Now John J. Cuffe has brought Elisha and Jemima to life in this engaging novel, set against the events of the Revolutionary War.

Written in the first person, as told by Elisha Benton, it seems to give an authentic voice to the lives and times of this young couple.”

Barbara Cook, Archivist, Tolland Town Historian,
Tolland Historical Society

“John J. Cuffe has crafted an engaging story that weaves the facts of Elisha Benton’s life with what is known about 18th century rural New England and the early days of the American Revolutionary War. It is very interesting to have Elisha (Benton) with a voice. The author has created a believable and dimensional character in an intriguing story line.”

Gail White Usher, Director, Daniel Benton Homestead Museum,
Tolland Historical Society
