That's all I have at the moment, my Chaffee Book is at my Mother's house, she is the Chaffee in my line. Paul Vincent Chaffee can probably fill in the rest for you from Reuben. There is another Forum for the Carpenter family who married many Chaffees and many Chaffees married them. Best of luck in your search. Chloe Watson
