1949 Benjamin ^ Chafee, Jr. (Benjamin, ^ Francis Green, s Benjamin, * Joseph, 3
Joseph, 2 Thomas ^), was born in Onondaga County, N. Y., September 27, 1798,
and died in Tama City, la., about 1884. He married (1) in a town at the head of
the Allegheny River, in October', 1818, Maria, daughter of David Lewis of Al-
bany, N. Y. She was born in Troy, N. Y., and died during the Civil War. He
married a second time.

When a young man Mr. Chafee went to Ohio, where he lived for many years in
Cincinnati, during this time making two trips on foot back to his old home in
New York state. About 1835 he moved to Brookville, Ind., where a small farm
two miles north of the town was cleared and where his children grew up. He ran
into debt and in 1849 went to the California gold fields, where he remained about
two years, returning home with sufficient money to pay his indebtedness and
have a balance left for the comfort of his family. Later he made a laborious trip
to Pike's Peak. At the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted and was accepted,
despite his advanced age. Owing to ill health, however, he served but a few
months. After his second marriage he removed to Tama City, where he was living
at the time of his death. He was a tanner and farmer. At one time he owned
land in Marcellus, N. Y., as the records show that February 9, 1835, "Benjamin
Chaffee and Maria his wife of Cincinnati" quitclaimed land in Marcellus, and
April 12, 1843, sold land there, being then of Brookville.

It has been said of him that "a warmer hearted, truer, better man never trod
the earth." He was unswervingly honest and a little after reaching middle life
he became distinctly religious, uniting with the Methodist Church, although his
antecedents had been Baptists.

Thomas was born in Attica, N. Y., April 14, 1820, and married in Java, N. Y.,

June 15, 1845, Harriett E., daughter of William Jones of England.

"Wm. Chaffee, father of E. F. Chaffee, came from Brookfield, Mass., in the
autumn of 1817, and settled in Attica, then Genesee county, N. Y., where in a
log house Edward Franklin Chaffee was born. He is the seventh of ten chil-
dren. His education, with the exception of one term at a select school, was re-
ceived in the common school and in the chimney corner by the light of a wood
fire. In the autumn of 1840 he commenced teaching school at Bennington Centre,
in a primitive schoolhouse, with side boards for writing desks and long slabs with
bracing legs for seats. He received fourteen dollars per month with the privilege
of boarding with the inhabitants and taught seventy-five pupils. He might be con-
sidered successful in this vocation, as he taught twenty-two years in Attica and
vicinity, the last two terms in the Attica Union school. In 1844 he taught at North
Java, where he cast for Henry Clay, his first Presidential vote. To make up for
the small pay for teaching 123 pupils, as he went ' boarding round ' he became ac-
quainted with Miss Harriett E. Jones, born in Herefordshire, Eng., whose grand
uncle. Sir Hungerford Hold, an officer in the British army, was killed at the battle
of Bunker Hill, while another grand uncle, Wm. Floyd, was a signer of the Declara-
tion of Independence. In the autumn of 1863 Mr. Chaffee was elected School
Commissioner of the First District of Wyoming county, and held that office six
years. He issued a call for a County Teachers' Association in 1861, which is now
one of the most prosperous in the state. In 1867, through his labor, the school of
Attica village was made a free school under an act of the Legislature. His life
work has ever been to encourage the education of the masses and his cheerful
disposition has rendered him apt in that relation. He has held several to^Ti offices,
and being a friend of the poor has been entrusted for many years with funds to
be expended for their comfort. His purpose is to do right regardless of cost.
In the spring of 1830 he became a member of the First Baptist church and has
contributed liberally to its support and also for worthy objects. He has for over
twenty years been a Sunday school superintendent and has compiled the history
of that church, which was organized Aug. 21st, 1806. He is an advocate of tem-
perance and sobriety. He has made several trips into the Western States; the
first was soon after the Black Hawk war, when there was neither wharf nor pier
at Milwaukee, and Chicago was but a small village, the approach to which was by
a pier built out into the lake. He has for several years contributed to the j^ress,
and now, surrounded with pleasant associations at the eve of life, besides super-
intending his valuable farm in the rich and beautiful valley of the Tonawanda,
devotes a part of his time to writing stories, historical sketches, reminiscences,
biographies, etc., for the Attica News."

feet in height. He left home when quite a young man, spent a few years in Lei-
cester, and several years in Boston, Mass., settling in 1844 in Winchester, where
he lived until his death. He was a retired manufacturer of cabinet work. The
following obituary is from the Putnam (Conn.) Patriot:

"During his life he engaged in a variety of enterprises, being interested in the
manufacture of furniture, pianos and leather, and was for a time at the Charles-
town Navy Yard building boats. During his later years he took up the study
of clocks, in which he was much interested, and nothing delighted him more than
to secure an intricate and difficult specimen and put it in good running order.
He was the last of his family, and the old homestead in Connecticut which has
passed through so many generations is still in the possession of his heirs. The re-
mains were interred in Wildwood cemetery."
