was baptized in the First Congregational Church of Woodstock, June 1, 1746, and

Samuel was baptized there, September 17, 1749. They lived in Thompson, where

they built a two room log house near the edge of Thompson woods. They burned

pine knots for lights. Later they built an addition to this house, which in after

years was the home of their son, Artemus. Samuel Chaffe served as a Private in

the Revolution, enlisting July 5, 1780, and being discharged December 4, 1780.

322 Thomas ^ Chaffe (Samuel,^ Joseph, ^ Joseph, 2 Thomas 1) was born in Wood-
stock, Conn., February 22, 1756, and died in Thompson, Conn., June 28, 1826.

He married there Mary . He was baptized in the First Congregational

Church of Woodstock, May 9, 1756. In later life he became a member of the
UniversaHst church. He had a light complexion, blue eyes, was stocky in build
and of medium height. He probably moved to Killingly, Conn., with his father
when a child, and was Hving there April 11, 1783, when he bought of Benjamin
Morris of Dudley, Mass., for £154, land there. In 1787 he was of Thompson
when he sold to Benjamin Morris for £198, thirty-eight acres of land in the western
part of Thompson. The Revolutionary records of Connecticut show that he was
a Private in Captain Ephraim Manning's company of Woodstock, enlisting May
10, 1775, and being discharged December 15, 1775, but in a claim for pension
made in 1818, he testifies that he served from April, 1775, until May, 1776. He
was a farmer and for many years a tavern keeper in Thompson in partnership
with his son Joel. He died in this tavern, and he and his wife were buried in the
Thompson burying-ground where their tombstones read :

"Sacred to the ]\Iemory of Lieut. Thomas Chafee who died June 28, 1826, aged
70."

"In memory of Mrs. Mary Chafee wife of Mr. Thomas Chafee who died March
27, 1814 in her 59th year."

It will be noted that though Thomas Chaffe's stone names him "Lieut." in 1826,
he was "Mr." in 1814, and as the war and pension records show him to have
fought as a Private in the Revolution, it is to be surmised that between 1814 and
1826 he received the title, perhaps for service in the Connecticut Militia. February
14, 1827, Elijah Crosby was appointed administrator of the estate of "Lieut.
Thomas Chafee."

soldier, who wintered at Valley Forge. His daughter Patience married Walker
Chaffee, William's brother. Martha Bowen was a tailoress before her marriage.
She was born in 1790, died aged seventy-four, and was buried in Warren.

William Chaffee was a farmer, cooper and blacksmith, the latter trade being
taught him by his uncle, Caleb Barney. March 21, 1791, he bought of Jesse Cook
a house lot on Transit Lane, Providence, R. I., in the deed being spoken of as
"WiUiam Chaffee, Cooper." Later he settled in Olneyville, then a part of North
Providence, where he bought land of Lyndon Knight, March 21, 1815, later mak-
ing other purchases of land there. He gave to the towTi land for a public highway,
which in his honor was called Chaffee Street. His blacksmith shop was on Manitou
Avenue, near or on the present sight of the Dalaine Mills, and his house stood
opposite. When the First Free Baptist Church in Olneyville was formed, of which
Reverend ^Martin Cheney was pastor, William Chaffee transferred his member-
ship from the church of which he was then a member to the new church, was one
of its eleven charter members, and of them was the last survivor. On the first
Wednesday of May, 1815, he was elected by the General Assembly of Rhode
Island "to the Office of Ensign of the first Company of Infantry in the town of
North Providence," the commission being issued by Governor William Jones,
]\Iay 8th of that year. The following year, on the first Wednesday of May, he was
advanced by the same body to the rank of Lieutenant, and the first Wednesday
of May, 1817, to that of Captain. The originals of these three commissions are in
the possession of the writer, the first two issued by Governor Wilham Jones, the
last by Governor Nehemiah R. Wright.

Captain Chaffee was for twelve years a member of the Rhode Island Legislature
from North Pro\'idence, first as Representative, in 1830 as State Senator, and
again in 1832 as Representative. The latter year he resigned, and having on
April 28, 1831, sold his house, barn and blacksmith shop, removed to Warren,
Bradford County, Pa., where he established him^self as a blacksmith, and bought

a farm of five hundred acres, two hundred and seventy-eight acres being purchased
of Charles R. Barstow in June, 1833. He received a letter of dismission from the
Baptist Church in Olneyville to the one in his new home, of which he became a
Deacon. He died at the advanced age of ninety-four years, having accumulated
