Lt. Gen. Adna Romanza Chaffee

Hoping to hear from anyone who might know something about Lt. Gen. Adna R. Chaffee's gravemarker. I am researching for a biography of American sculptor Sally James Farnham(1869-1943), who was commissioned to create an equestrian relief marker of Chaffee which was placed at his grave in Arlington National Cemetery sometime between 1918-1922. It stood there until the late 40' or early 50's when his daughter(?) had the marker removed and in it's place the current plain granite markers for Chaffee and his son, Chaffee Jr. I am searching for the name of his daughter, any relatives of her, or anyone who might know the story behind this "mystery" or the current location of the original relief.
