The only thing I can do is report what William Chaffee has provided in The Chaffee Genealogy.
According to him, Adna married Kate Reynolds on Sept 19, 1867. They had two children.

The first was born Sept 1868 and Died Feb, 1869, aged 5 mos. You have specific dates for this death and for Kate's death, which I do not have. The second son was born Aug, 1869 and died in Fort Griffin Aug., 1869, aged one day.
He married Annie Frances Rockwell on 30 March 1875. They had four children as follows:
Kate Grace Chaffee, b. 4 Feb., 1876
Mabel Chaffee, b in NYC 4 Sept 1877 and died there young.
Adna R. Chaffee, Jr., b 23 Sept, 1884
Helen Valentine Chaffee, b. 14 Feb, 1888
Truman had no brother Philander. The nearest thing to it was a brother named Philo.
