1776 Newell Moses ^ Chaffee (Ezra,^ Ezra,^ Ebenezer,* John,3 Joseph, 2 Thomas 1)
was born in Smithfield, N. Y., September 25, 1818, and died in Lincoln, ]\Iadison
County, N. Y., April 14, 1906. He married in Smithfield, March 5, 1851, Catherine,
daughter of Colonel Alexander McGregor of that place, who enlisted in the War of
1812 before he was twenty years of age, and died in 1876, in his home in Oneida,
N. Y. Mr. Chaffee had a fair complexion, blue eyes, and was five feet, ten inches
in height. He attended and helped to support the Presbyterian Church, of which
his wife was a member. He lived on his father's farm in Smithfield until his
marriage, when he bought a neighboring farm. He soon sold this and bought
one in Lincoln and lived on this place for forty years. He was Superintendent
of Poor for Madison County, and Assessor of Lenox, N. Y. He had a refined,
quiet and retiring disposition. Both he and his wife were members of the Madison
County Historical Society. He died of bronchitis at an advanced age and was
buried in Peterboro. Selections from an obituary in a local paper are here given:

"Mr. Chaffee . . . was fully informed on all the questions of the day,
and retained his faculties in a remarkable degree, his memory and judgment being
unusually good for a man of his years. He . . . was one of the oldest and
best-known men in the county. He had held various responsible positions of
trust, and was at all times deeply interested in every movement that had for its
object the up-building of the industrial institutions of the town and county.
He had a potent influence in moulding and directing the opinions of men who
were leaders in the important political movements of the period of his activity.
It could be said of him he was a true patriot. He was a man of pure life, high
ideals and possessed those qualities which constitute the true gentleman — envious
of none, a large charity for all, and a generous liberality to the poor. He was a
worthy citizen, a good neighbor, a devoted husband, and a kind and affectionate
father. Those who knew him best loved him most."

while resting in his chair, as did his wife. He was in the grocery and bakery busi-
ness, as well as being agent for the Masonic Insurance Company. His funeral
was conducted by his ^lasonic lodge. The following obituary is from the Canton

"John Chaffee died, at his home on East Locust street, Simday afternoon at
3 o'clock, after an illness of more than a year.

"Mr. Chaffee was born near Brooklyn, Conn., in the old Chaffee homestead
built in 1781 by his grandfather, and occupied by successive generations for nearly

and married Miss Mary A. Fast. They came to Canton in 1861. In the year 1890

and Mrs. E. A. Heald, of Canton.



358 THE CHAFFEE GENEALOGY

"Mr. Chaffee was engaged in business for a number of years, carrying on a
grocery store and bakery, but retired because of failing healtli. He was a great
sufferer, but rarely spoke of his health and was always inclined to look on the
bright side of life. He passed the winters and summers with his daughters in
Evanston, but clung to the old home where he had spent so many years, and it
was there that he died.

" Few people appreciated friends more than he and he always welcomed them to
his home with a genuine old-fashioned hospitality. He was a regular attendant
at the Methodist Episcopal Church, rarely missing a sermon. He was an honored
member of Morning Star lodge, A. F. and A. M., and also of the Eastern Star
chapter, and was among the oldest members of these organizations, and faithful
in attendance upon the meetings. He will be greatly missed."

1806 Lucian ^ Sharpe (Sarah Adams « Chaffee, Samuel, ^ Ebenezer,* John,^
Joseph, 2 Thomas i) was born in Providence, R. I., March 20, 1830, and died at
sea, October 17, 1899. He married in Smithfield, R. L, June 25, 1857, Louisa,
daughter of Lewis and Mary Dexter of that place. She was born May 15, 1831.
After Mr. Sharpe's death, his heirs carried out his intentions with regard to the
endowment fund of Brown University, by contributing $10,000 to it.

The following obituary is from a Providence paper:

" Lucian Sharpe died of Bright 's disease on board the North German Lloyd
steamer Saale. Mr. Sharpe was a very sick man when he started to return home,
being carried aboard the ship by two attendants in a steamer chair and requiring
the services of nurses, some of whom accompanied him on the voyage home.
Everything possible was done for his comfort, but without avail.

"When he was seven years of age he went to live with his uncle, Pitt Sharpe,
on the homestead in Pomfret, Conn. In the spring of 1840 Mr. Sharpe's father
purchased a farm in Hartwick, Otsego county, New York, and for two years the
family resided there. Afterward the farm was sold, but for two years Mr. Sharpe
attended school at Hartwick Seminary. In 1844 he returned to Providence and
entered the Elm street grammar school, afterward attending the Providence
High School for two years. He inherited the business instincts of his father and
also his strong physical and mental endowments. To these he added a talent for
business and the power to execute its requirements. In his early manhood he
evinced an appreciation of all improvement in mechanical devices, a faculty which
later proved useful to him. He served a five years' apprenticeship with Joseph R.
Brown, and in 1853 a partnership was formed under the name of J. R. Browne &
Sharpe. At that time about 14 men were employed. The business steadily in-
creased, and in 1858 a contract was made with the Wilcox & Gibbs Sewing Machine
Company to manufacture all their machines. In 1866 the fine scale and measure-
ment business of J. R. Browai & Sharpe was united with that conducted by Samuel
Darling of Bangor, Me., under the corporate name of Darling, BrowTi & Sharpe.
The Bro^NTi & Sharpe Manufacturing Co. and Darling, Bro%\Ti & Sharpe ran along
separately, yet under the same roof, till Mr. Darling's death, Jan. 1, 1897, when
the latter firm was absorbed. Mr. Sharpe filled a number of important positions
other than those in the business with which he was connected. He was a director



SEVENTH GEXERATIOX 359

in the Wilcox & Gibbs Sewing Machine Company of Xew York; trustee of the
Providence Institution for Savings, and at the time of his death its Vice President;
from 1879 to 1891 he was a director in the National Bank of North America, and
had served in a similar capacity since 1897 in the Rhode Island Hospital Trust
Company. For some years he was Vice President of the Union Railroad Com-
pany; in 1883 he was made director in the Providence Gas Company, and had
been President of the Providence Journal Company since 1886.

"Of strict business integrity and a careful worker himself, he endeavored in
every possible way to aid those in his employ to better themselves and to add
to their efficiency as workmen. He established a shop library containing about
2000 volumes and inaugurated a movement whereby the apprentices might have
an association, with meetings in working hours, in which lectures could be held
and the benefit of mutual improvement enjoyed.

"He possessed habits of miusually close observation, in consequence of which
he was full of vrise suggestions in regard to improvements in tools and their manu-
facture. During the 50 years of his connection with the company the workshops
increased in area from 1800 square feet to 283,000 square feet and the number of
employes from 14 men to a working force of 1500.

"Mr. Sharpe made frequent trips to Europe and was well known in London
and Paris. The machinery of his firm has a world-wide reputation.

1818 Daniel Dwight ^ Chaffee (Luther, « Samuel, s Ebenezer,* John,^ Joseph, 2
Thomas 1) was born in Orwell, Pa., October 21, 1819, and died in Campto-^Ti, Pa.,
January 3, 1889. He married, October 22, 1845, Eliza D., daughter of AYilliam
Camp of Camptown, who survived him. He was a great lover of children, with
whom he easily made friends. He was buried in Camptown. The following
obituary is from a local paper:

"Early in life Mr. Chaffee learned the carpenter's trade, and for some time
before reaching his majority he worked in Towanda in Mackinson's turning shop.
In 1842 he worked at his trade in Herrick. WTiile there he formed the acquaint-
ance of Miss Eliza D. Camp of Camptown, to whom he was married in 1845. The
union was a happy one, and she who is now left to mourn speaks of her departed
companion as a kind and considerate husband. Five children were born to them, —
three daughters and two sons, all of whom are living. One daughter, Mrs. G. R.
Stone, resides in California; another, Mrs. C. L. Avery, lives in Penfield in this
State; while the third daughter. Miss Leora, the youngest child of the family,
lives with her mother. Both sons, Clarence and William L., reside in Camptown.
About a year after marriage Mr. Chaffee settled in Camptown, where he spent the
remainder of his life. He was for years an undertaker and furniture dealer, which
gave him a wide acquaintance. In his more than forty years of business life in
this vicinity he established for himself a reputation for promptness and integrity
which is of itself a worthy monument to his memory. As a funeral director he
had no superior. Upon occasions requiring kindness and patience he showed
himself possessed of these qualities, and eA'-ery act was in perfect harmony with
the order and solemnity of the service. As a citizen he was public spirited and
charitable. He was ready for any public enterprise, and would put his hand to
any needed improvement. In his home, in business, on the street, wherever met
he was cheerful and obliging. He greatly loved his home, was proud of his chil-
dren, and aimed to do for them the very best he possibly could. He loved good
books, and was a great lover of nature. Trees and flowers, hills and streams, in
fact everything beautiful or sublime attracted his attention, and drew from him
expressions of admiration. He was not a member of any church but believed in
God, and did not leave his friends to mourn without hope, but assured them that
he believed God would not forsake him. Possessed of a faculty for ready dis-
crimination he knew the genuine, and distinguished it from sham in men and
things. Deceit he despised, and with like readiness he recognized and commended
the true. So his views of religion carried him beyond words and mere professions,
to deeds and practical fruits. He was a valuable man to his home and to the com-
munity, and will be greatly missed in the larger, as well as in the smaller circle."
