St. Charles (Illinois) Review, Saturday, 8 June 1878

Headline: Lily Lake and Other Creameries

The farm of D.B. Chaffee contains 160 acres, half of which is timber, twelve acres corn, and fifteen oats. Last year, corn was a good crop and oats yielded 650 bushels from ten acres. The stock consists of twenty-five cows, (the milk of which is sent to Chicago), eight horses and a number of hogs. there is an excellent spring on the place, which the owner has utilized for a pool in his milk house. The farm is abundantly watered by Mill Creek. It is two miles from Blackberry Station. This gentleman is a Methodist and the family attend church at Canada Corners.
I am not related to nor researching this family and have no further information.
