Hi, Again,

It seems that the Chaffee History has it a bit wrong in regards to Henry Chaffee. Henry married Mahala Chambers it seems instead of Mahala Owens. It says the following:

826 Henry 8 Chaffee, Jr. (Henry,5 Samuel,4 Joseph,3 Joseph,3 Thomas '), was born in Killingly, Conn., January 6, 1771, and died in Michigan. He married Mahala Owens. He was baptized in the First Congregational Church of Woodstock, Conn., December 12, 1773, and later in life was a member of the Methodist Church in Lyons, N.Y.,where, in 1824, he lived and bought land; in 1831 he bought land in Arcadia, N. Y., where he was then living. He had a light complexion, was a farmer, and lived with his son John when he died.


2187 i John 7 Chaffee,.lived in Michigan.
