  of 1205

I am searching for descendants of my granduncle, Robert Chaffey,b.1 Oct. 1853, Grand River, Lot 56, Kings Co., Prince Edward Island, Canada
Father: George Chaffey
Mother: Marie (Swallow) Chaffey
Paternal grandfather, Joseph Chaffey I
Maternal grandfather: Robert Swallow
Robert went to Boston in 1873 to become a ship builder. He married there in 1873 Margaret "Maggie" Banks, of PEI.
Some children of Robert and Maggie may be:
Frederick, b. 20 Nov. 1873
Frances, b. 30 Mar. 1875
Warren, b. 9 Sept. 1878
In the 1880 Boston census there is a 10 month old child living in household (either Thomas or William. No other children were listed in the census.

Does this ring a bell with anyone? Thanks,
Helen Mc
