Hi Alice, my name is Terry W. Chaffee and I lived in Ventura Co., CA, in the town of Ojai. My second cousin, Nancy Chaffee Kiner Whitaker, met Suzi a couple of times and they talked about the genealogy stuff, the origin of the name, Thomas Chaffe, etc. I wrote to Suzy in the 1980's thru the Chapstick Company and she actually got my letter and sent it back with a nice photo and my letter back with a reply and said she had met Nancy and they talked about the Chaffee stuff. She told me that a crater on the moon(dark side btw)had been named for Roger Bruce Chaffee, one of the astronaunts killed in 1967. He would be something like his 9th cousin, once removed, according to my cousin Connie, who was the one who posted a msg for me trying to help see how Suzy fit into the descendants of Thomas Chaffee, like Connie and I are. So for genealogy purposes we are just seeing who her line was from Thomas. It is ok if you don't feel right about sharing that info. Understand. Thankyou for the reply though. Bye Alice, Sincerely, Terry William Chaffee
