Areview of The Chaffee Genealogy looks to me like William Chaffee has his facts in line.
The problem arises as we try to report what he has reported.
Jonathan's son Nathaniel was indeed born Oct 20, 1705 and died Jun 12, 1759. He married Rebecca Mason on Dec 12, 1734. She died April 22, 1746, in her 36th year. He then married in Rehobothon February 25, 1747, Lydia Peck, who survived him.
The first son and first child of Nathaniel and Rebecca, was Nathaniel who was born on Oct. 6, 1735 (the year following the marriage).
This Nathaniel married (1) Ruth Mansfield on Oct. 15, 1755 in Rehoboth. She died Jan. 3, 1760. He then married (2) on July 17, 1760, Susanna, the daughter of Daniel Carpenter. She died before Dec. 22, 1818.
Nathaniel and Ruth had three children: Comfort in 1756, Nathaniel Jr. in 1757 and Ruth born in 1758.
Nathaniel and Susanna had nine children: Skusanna b. Mar. 1, 1763; Hannah b. Dec 19,1764; Daniel b. Jul27, 1766; Benjamin, b. Aug 17, 1768; Rebecca, b. June 8, 1770; Simeon, b. Feb5, 1772; Ezra, b. Oct.29, 1773; Aaron, b. Jul25, 1775; and Huldah, b. Jun 28, 1777.
Hope this helps to clear up the confusion.
