765 Sullivan 6 Chaffee (Calvin, ^ James,* Joseph,^ Joseph,^ Thomas 1) was born
in Connecticut about 1787, and died in Sheshequin, Pa., September 13, 1846.
He married in Lexington, N. Y., Catherine, daughter of James Deyeo of that
place. She died February 1, 1861. She was a member of the ]\Iethodist Church.
Sullivan Chaffee was named for General Sullivan of the Revolution. He had a
light complexion, blue eyes, and was five feet, eight inches in height. He served
as a Private in the War of 1812. At the time of his marriage he lived in Lexington,
but in the spring of 1840 moved to Sheshequin, ^vhere he and his wife are buried.
The following incident in the lives of Sullivan Chaffee and Calvin Chaffee, his
father, is from Reminicences of Lexington, N. Y., as told by an old Resident:

"Among the early settlers of this town was one Calvin Chaffee, from Conn. He
had been a soldier of the Revolution, and possessed a good share of the spirit of
those times. He had a son named Sullivan, who, like his father, was used to fire-
arms and was a good shot, and fond of hunting. Wild animals were quite numerous,
and bounties were offered for the heads of beasts of prey ; so the successful hunter
often earned considerable remuneration, besides enjoying the excitement of the
chase. On one occasion, Sullivan had an exciting adventure with a huge panther,
A light snow had fallen during the night, and it still snowed slowly, in the morning.
It was a good time to find near game, and he started alone wdth his gun. He lived
on the west side of the Schoharie Creek, near his father, who lived on the place
knowm as the 'James Deyeo Place.' On the day of which I wTite, his tramp was
on the ridge or mountain that divides the valleys of the Red Kill or Batavia Creek,
and the Schoharie Kill, somewhere north or northeast of the farm now owned by
Wm. Maben. He halted near a large log and knocked the snow from his gun against
it. While doing so, he heard a low growl within the log, and also noticed some
small fresh tracks, resembling cats tracks, around it. As the entrance to the hollow
was not convenient to reach the inmates, he stopped it up to prevent escape, and
hastened to get aid. A hunter named Hood lived on the North side, and Chaffee
found him, and taking an ax, they hastened back to the scene of operations. On
chopping sufficiently they found two panther kittens alone; the mother gone.
Each man took one, and endeavored to take them home alive. But they resisted,
by scratching, biting and screaming so persistently, that they were obliged to
knock them on the head, and kill them. Mr. Chaffee, on such trips wore a linen
over-frock, to keep off the storm. Taking this, he wrapped the young panther,
as he thought, so as to avoid the old ones getting any scent and thus avoid pursuit.
He hastened home, but finding that his gun needed repairs, he went the next morn-
ing to a locksmith, named Johnson, living in what is now called Jewett. Not
long after he started, a younger brother was sent a short distance, to the sap
bush, to get a sap trough in which to feed pigs. He was under the necessity of



SIXTH GENERATION 217

looking around considerable to get one suitable, and while so engaged, discovered
tracks so much larger than a dog's that he was impressed with the belief that a
panther was near. He hurried to tell his people. At first they would not believe
it possible a panther would come so near the house, but on investigation, the
father said, 'surely, they are panther's tracks.' So assembling the neighboring
men and boys, some fifty in number, they pursued the beast by its trail, and found
she had hidden under some rocks near the creek, not far from his house. The
elder Chaffee said he would drive her out, and the rest agreed to shoot her. So
Putnam-like, he entered the den, but not to slay, and succeeded in driving her
out. But her size and terrible aspect so terrified the would-be slayers, that not a
shot was fired and she went on her way unmolested. Sullivan came home that
night and hearing what had passed resolved to find and kill the panther the next
da3^ A neighbor named Isaac Decker was a great hunter and a brave man. He,
with Sullivan, started in the morning, and soon came upon the panther. She was
standing on a shelf of a rock in the ledges above what is now called the Rappleyea
place, on the Little Westkill mountain. On discovering her whereabouts, and know-
ing the habit of the panther to spring upon her supposed enemy when wounded,
Chaffee hung his hat and hunting frock on a bush, so as to look like a man, where
they wished her to spring. Then the men placed themselves where they could see,
and not be seen, so as to get a good shot both where she was then and when she
leaped to the gromid. Chaffee fired first. As anticipated, the panther sprung at
the decoy. Then Decker put another bullet in her heart, or as near there, as might
be. In her death struggles, she tore the ground in a fearful manner. Her struggles
were terrible, but did not last long. She was the largest of panthers ever killed
in the town, measuring nine feet from tip to tip. This is only one of the many
exciting hunts in the early history of the town."
