Comfort Bliss Chaffee was the firstborn child of Nathaniel Bliss Chaffee and Tabatha Chubbuck of Ellington, Conn. There were ten other children.
Comfort Bliss was born in South Wilbraham, Mass., Nov. 10, 1796 and died in Orwell, PA., March 28, 1878. He married there, November 22, 1818, Docia, daughter of William Sexton of that place. She died June 1, 1879 and was buried in Orwell.
She was a member of the Presbyterian Church, as was her husband. He joined it at the age of seventeen, and was Deacon, Sunday School Superintendent, and leader of the singing in the church in Orwell. He moved from Mass. to Penna. in early manhood.
Mr. Chaffee had a light complexion, blue eyes, and was five feet, ten inches in height. He was a farmer and lived in Warren, Pa., and Orwell. He was a man of great physical endurance and strength, having been known in his younger days, to handle two and three men at a time. He was of temperate habits, very industrious and accumulated a goodly property. He was of limited education, but had a strong mind, was very orthodox in religion and a constant reader of the Bible. In politics he was a Republican.
The couple had ten children. The fourth child died in infancy - the remaining all lived to marry.
