This is what I have on a Chaffey in this war...
Thomas Chaffey (1756/60-1828) enlisted in the Revolutionary Army as a private, from Monmouth County, NJ in the spring of 1780. He served with the 1st Battalion, 2nd Establishment, 1st Regiment, under Col. Matthias Ogden and Captain James Mitchell. He took part in the surrender of General Charles Cornwallis at Yorktown in 1781. He applied for a pension in 1819, became a farmer in Hornerstown, NJ, and was buried there in the Zion Cemetery.
