Your quite welcome! It's always thrilling to have someone answer an E-mail and have it be your heritage. I have always appreciate it. However, remember that it is always wise to check out the information that you have to be true by checking actual records.

Your second Jonathan Chaffee married Aligail Lyon. They were married in Ashford, CT 1, June 1727. Abigail died 9, Jan 1773. They belonged to the First Congrational Church. They had 10 children and Thomas Chaffee was born 8, April 1731 and married Hannah Reed.

They had Caleb Chaffee, born 9, July 1781 and married Martha Fletcher and (2) Elizabeth Davenport.

The Chaffee Genealogy has information about each of them. For instance the land they bough,t responsible positions they might of had, etc. Your Thomas was a farmer and a kind and Chrisitan neighbor. He married Hannah daughter of John & Elizabeth Reed, in Willington, CT. She was born there on 3, October 1742. Tomas was born in Ashford, Conn 8, April 1731 and died in Becket, MA
