312 THE CHAFFEE GENEALOGY

accounts of his career and tributes paid to his memory at the time of his death we
select the following:

"Hon. Jerome B. Chaffee was born in Cambria, Niagara county, New York.
He received an academic education at Lockport, New York. He came to Adrian,
Michigan, in the fall of 1844, and taught school in the Allen Chaffee district that
fall and winter. In the spring of 1S45 he went to Adrian, where he remained
about two years. He afterwards taught the Selleck district. He became a clerk
in a dry goods store for about a year when he went to the State of Indiana, and
settled at Ligonier, Noble county, where he engaged in the mercantile business
for about three years; sold out and returned to Adrian, going into the dry goods
trade again for himself, continuing the trade for several years, and disposing of
his interest to his partner, when he went into a bank, where he remained until its
failure, afterwards continuing in the employ of the receiver for some months.
He entered the employ of the Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana Railroad
Company in Adrian. In March, 1857, he went to the territory of Kansas, seeking
his fortune, first to Leavenworth where he engaged in speculation in wild lands
and city property. In the fall of 1857, at St. Joseph, Missouri, he started a bank-
ing business, which continued about two years, and in 1860 Mr. Chaffee went to
Pike's Peak, where he engaged in mining, which business he has been engaged in
ever since. At the organization of the territory of Colorado, in 1861, he was
tendered the nomination as delegate to Congress for the new territory, which
position he declined. Mr. Chaffee was offered the nomination several times as
representative in the legislature, and declined, but was afterwards elected, and
served in the years 1861-2-3, the latter year acting as speaker of the house. In
In 1864-5 the territorial legislature organized the state government and elected
Mr. Chaffee the first United States senator. Owing to his antagonism to Presi-
dent Johnson's reconstruction policy the president at two successive sessions of
congress vetoed the bill admitting Colorado as a state, thus depriving Mr. Chaffee
of the senatorship during that time. In 1870 he was elected a delegate to con-
gress, and re-elected in 1872. The first bill he introduced was for the admission
of Colorado as a state, which was finally carried in March, 1875, whereupon he was
again elected to the United States senate, and served until March 4th, 1879, when
his term of office expired, and in consequence of poor health and being extensively
engaged in business, he declined a re-election. In 1860 he formed a business
partnership with Mr. Eben Smith, a practical California miner, under the name
of Smith & Chaffee, for the purpose of mining. In the year 1865 he organized
the First National bank of Denver, and became its president. In all the enter-
prises in the state Mr. Chaffee was closely identified, and was more largely en-
gaged in mining and other business than any other man in the state of Colorado.
In 1870 Mr. Chaffee went to Europe for the first time, on business, and crossed
the ocean five times.

"In 1879 and 1880 he amassed a fortune of $1,000,000 through his mining
operations. In 1881 his daughter and only child was married to U. S. Grant, Jr.,
at whose house he died. His connection with the Grants led him to invest a large
sum with the firm of Grant & Ward. It is said that he enjoyed more of Gen. Grant's
confidence than any one outside of the general's family. Notwithstanding his
loss in the Grant & Ward failure ex-Senator Chaffee left a large fortune, chiefly
invested in valuable western real estate.

"Mr. Chaffee was a national man, and had been for many years. He made
himself such by the force of his own intellect. A man of few words, as a rule, he
was still a man of strong ideas, and possessed of a personality such as was found
in but few of his contemporaries. Isolated as he was to a degree by his residence
in Colorado, he still ranked with the leading men of the nation in politics and in
business affairs, in both of which he was regarded as singularly clear-headed; and
his counsel in matters in which he took an interest was generally followed. He
was a man of strong convictions, and possessed of the will and the courage to
execute. Once decided what to do he allowed no minor matter to stand in the way
of his work. He overrode all obstacles, and allowed no man to stand in his way.



SEVENTH GENERATION 313

He was for many years the one man prominent in Colorado politics and he has
been looked upon for the past dozen years as one of the national leaders of the
Republican party — the friend and adviser alike and at times of Grant, Blaine,
Logan, Conkling and the various leaders. His history is largely the history of
Colorado. A pioneer, he was thoroughly identified with the territory and state.
In many respects the most striking figure in Colorado history he will be long
remembered there.

"The relations of Mr. Chaffee with the late General Grant are historically in-
teresting. They began in strife, during 1875, when Chaffee bitterly opposed the
nomination of General Edward McCook to be governor of Colorado. McCook
was confirmed. In 1876 President Grant and Chaffee became reconciled, and the
vote of Colorado was thus secured for the Republican party in the election of that
year. From that time the two men were friendly, particularly so after the in-
teresting family relation before referred to was formed between them in 1880.

" He was of medium size and stout. His hair had grown gray, and bald spots
were plentiful on his head. He had a massive head, solidly planted on his shoulders,
an open, genial face, smooth shaven, with a smile on it oftener than repose, a high
and expansive brow, square set jaws and steady gray eyes."
