Does anyone have any info to confirm this.
This is waht I know on Dr. Hezekiah Chaffee:
Dr. Hezekiah Chaffee: (1731-1819). Lived in Windsor, 10 miles northeast of Hartford, Connecticut. The house of Dr. Hezekiah Chaffee is a 15 room Georgian Colonial is located nearby the present school. His daughter Abigail Sherwood Chaffee (1787-1867) married Colonel James Loomis of Windsor, CT in 1805. One of their children was James Chaffee Loomis (1807-1877). James graduated from Yale College in 1828 and was a lawyer with a large practice in Bridgeport, CT. In 1837 he was a State Senator. James helped start the School for Girls. Loomis Chaffee School was created in a merger between the Loomis Institute (1914) and the Chaffee School for Girls.
However John Adams, the future second president of the United States (1825-29) maybe dined at his house Friday November 4, 1774.
