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.

Please note: I have been putting a lot of information on Wikitree and you may want to search there as well, especially for the Chaffee, Carpenter and Grant families.

Peers in Hayes Cememtery
There is a listing for JACOB PEER in Hayes Cemetery but no stone and dates of 1845-1872. JACOB DANIEL PEER, who was a twin, born 1843 is buried in St. Patrick's Cemetery, Brighton, with wife, Catherine Lawton Peer and several children. So if there is a Jacob Peer in Hayes Cemetery it has to be the father, Jacob B. Peer, wife of Mary Corner, who IS buried in Hayes. He remarried and moved up to Missaukee Co and had two more children and died in 1883. No one can find his death certificate nor where he is buried. His second wife, Jane Hughston Peer is buried in New Hudson.

Son Jacob had a brother, Thomas Henry Peer, born in 1845 and died in 1872 who married Lydia Gage. They had two children. I don't know where he nor Lydia are buried as they were in Terre Haute,Indiana after the Civil War. He was wounded at Chickmauga as was Jacob's twin, Jedde O. B., who died in Chattanooga, TN. a month later, and another brother, Richard Henry, my great-grandfather, was captured there and was in Libby Prison and then Andersonville and then survived the explosion aboard the Sultana. He died in 1908 and is buried in South Lyon Cemetery. Another brother, James, is in Hayes Cemetery with a stone. He died July 19, 1868 at 20 yrs, 10 months.

I corrected the death date to Oct 13, 1894. Suggest a note pointing out that the stone shows the death year as 1834 when it was actually 1894. She raised a family, so didn't die at age 12. Thanks.

I am descended from the Jonathan Chaffee line. My great grandmother was Sarah Mabel Chaffee. Many relatives are buried in Newman Cemetery. Thank you for your efforts.

RE: Ernest osborne
Thank you for your reply. I have found the Honor Roll online and found the correct record. I still think it's not completely accurate, but it's just a battle name.

In fact my most recent revelations on this matter might indicate that he died in a charge to fill a gap in the line, that really happened a day or two before the battle of Belleau Wood actually started. (there's some discrepancies online about the exact date on the battle of Belleau Wood).

On that note, I am submitting a Suggestion for correction, which in my mind, It's not so much correction that I'm suggesting, it's more addition. There is a nice letter I found on that gives more information than you have, and even more than what I had before I found it 2 days ago.
