1196 Sanford ^ Chafee (Stephen,6 Levi,^ Nathaniel,* Jonathan,3 Nathaniel,2
Thomas i) was born in Rehoboth, Mass., January 27, 1793, and died in Burton,
Wis., January 17, 1882. He married (1) in Fall River, Mass., October 16, 1816,
Sarah, daughter of Benjamin Chase of Somerset, Mass. This ceremony was per-
formed by Elder Wight of Bristol, R. I., where Sanford Chafee had formerly lived,
and on October 20th another ceremony was performed in Somerset, by Clark
Purinton, Justice of the Peace. Sarah Chase was a Quakeress. She died in 1818,
and was buried in Somerset. Sanford Chafee married (2) in the Baptist parsonage
in Bristol, in 1819, Mary Ann Otterson, born in Bristol, in 1796, died July 1, 1883.
She joined the Baptist Church in Bristol in 1811, and was at one time a member
of its choir. In 1834 she became a member of the Methodist Church, her husband,
also a Baptist, joining it at about the same time. She was of a loving disposition
and was highly esteemed by all who knew her, fully exemplifying in her daily
life, the Christian principles which she professed.

Sanford Chafee served in the War of 1812, and also in the Bristol militia. He
lived in Bristol, Somerset and moved to Leicester, Mass., in 1825; in 1832 he
settled in Saline, Mich., and in 1844 in Burton, Wis. From the age of twelve he
was obliged to earn his own living, his father at that time being injured and sub-
sequently losing his property. Politically, he was a Whig and later a Republican,
it being his boast that he had never failed to cast his vote. He was a firm believer
in education, and was a great reader. He was always blessed with good health,
a fact which he attributed to his temperate and correct habits of life, and daily
exercise in the open air. He seldom had occasion to consult a physician and for
the last thirty years of his life used no medicine, dying suddenly of heart failure.
Of a cheerful disposition and thorough honesty, he was a man of much firmness
of character and of a strong will. His New England home and all its associations
were ever dear to him. He had a light complexion, blue eyes, and was five feet,
eight inches in height. He was a farmer and a great lover of good horses.
