in height. He united with the Methodist Church, of which his wife is also a member,

at the age of forty-eight, and was Class Leader and Trustee. He also held several

town offices. He was a farmer and lumberman. In early life he was poor, but

by industry and frugality he amassed a considerable fortune. He lived in that

part of Sheshequin known as Hornbrook from 1840 until his death. The following

is from a local paper:

"Charles Chaffee was born in Greene county, N. Y., November 28, 1813. He
came to Hornbrook, Pa., in 1840, where he made his permanent home. He was

united in marriage in 1842 to Adeline Horton who survives him. Of the six chil-
dren given them, the daughter died in infancy, and one son at the age of about
twelve years. Four sons remain, two in Bradford county and two in the West.

"He was a man of great strength of mind and body, and amassed a fortune by
his industry and perseverance. He joined the M. E. society in 1861 and was its
most generous supporter. He entered into church work with his characteristic
energy. The society was small and weak at that time, and could scarcely have
been kept up but for his liberality. A church was soon built and he then took
upon himself the work of a sexton which he continued with untiring faithfulness
for years, gratuitously. He was also the Superintendent of the Sunday school,
sustaining it almost, if not entirely, at his own expense; providing Bibles, etc.,
for those who did not have them. His home was the itinerant's home, and many
are they who have pleasant memories of the kindness and help received at his
hands. He had been suffering for several months, but kept up with indomitable
courage and will. His mind was clear to the last. He arranged everything to his
satisfaction and said, 'All is well, I must go.' And so surrounded by loved and
loving ones, he passed from among us."

2094 Charles Elmer'' Chaffee (Freeborn Moulton,^ Chadwick,* James,* Joseph,*
Joseph,2 Thomas i) was born in Monson, Mass., Jime 30, 1818, and died in Wind-
sor Locks, Conn., November 2, 1907. He married in Somers, Conn., May 15, 1839,
Abilena, daughter of Cyrus Dimbar. At that time both Mr. Chaffee and his bride
were of Mon.^on.

"At the age of 20 years he removed to Rockville, Conn., where he entered the
employ of George Kellogg, remaining with him thro' a period of five years. He
then returned to Monson, engaging in the factory of Joseph Reynolds as a sorter
of wool. For twenty-five years, in fact, he worked at the board as a sorter, becom-
ing one of the most successful experts in that line of business. After three years
in Mr. Reynolds' employ he removed to Thompsonville in this state, and has since
been an honored resident of Connecticut. Mr. Chaffee spent seventeen years at
Thompsonville, devoting himself with great assiduity to the vocation which he had
selected. Associated with him in the Enfield company by which he was employed
was the late W. G. Medlicott, the founder of the Medlicott company at Windsor
Locks. When Mr. Medlicott established his company in 1863 he availed himself
of the services of Mr. Chaffee, who removed from Thompsonville to his present
place of residence, where he has since lived. He was connected with the company
imtil Mr. Medlicott 's failure in 1876. Mr. Chaffee's knowledge of the business and
judgment were such that he was selected as assignee. A satisfactory settlement
was effected, and the business was resumed, with ^Ir. Chaffee as treasurer, he being
still the incumbent of the position. He was also the president of the company
for a number of years, and the management of its affairs rested in his hands. The
twenty-five years which President Chaffee spent at the bench as a sorter of wool
afforded him an experience of the greatest value as a manufacturer of woolen
goods. He was one of the most successful buyers of wool in the state, and his
advantage in that direction was due principally to the long period of application
and industry by which his early years were signalized.

"Mr. Chaffee was the vice-president and one of the directors of the Windsor
Locks bank, and a member of the board of directors of the Mercantile National
Bank of Hartford. Was also president and a member of the board of directors
of the Windsor Locks and Warehouse Point Bridge and Ferry Company. He held
the office of first selectman at Windsor Locks through several terms, and was a
member of the board of assessors. Mr. Chaffee was long a member of the Congre-
gational church, in which he was honored with places of great trust and respon-
siblity; a member of the church committee and society's committee for many
years. When a young man in Monson he was associated with the old state militia
service. His golden wedding was celebrated ]\Iay 15, 1889. The two were old-
time school mates, and the love of more than half a century ago was most radiantly
exemplified in the union of heart and life that existed between them. Shadows
crossed their way, three children having died along life's journey; but an adopted
daughter took the place of the lost in their lives, making the home one of hope
and light. The life of Mr. Chaffee was one of superb consecration to duty, and no
greater treasure can be left with the community in which he lived so long than the
example which he impressed upon all classes of men. It is a legacy of priceless



384 THE CHAFFEE GENEALOGY

value. As a christian in the community and the manager of great industrial and
financial interests, his career has been in every way an honor to American
manhood.

"His honorable and successful life is an example of what industry, fidelity to
duty, temperance, economy, and probity will do, not only toward the achieve-
ment of material success, but toward the upbuilding of that character which is
at the end the best monument to a man's memory, and the most precious legacy
to his children." .

In the Fall of 1889 Mr. Chaffee gave $15,000 for a memorial building for the
Windsor Locks Grand Army Post.

At the time of his death Mr. Chaffee was still connected with the Medlicott Com-
pany as President, and lived in Windsor Locks.

daughter of Jasper Needham of Wales, Mass., who died about 1901. She was a
member of the Baptist Church there. ]\Ir. Chaffee was a member of the Congrega-
tional Church in Staffordville, where he lived from 1841. He was Justice of the
Peace for eight years. He was Chairman of the family reunion held yearly since
1886, by the descendants of Chadwick Chaffee (295). He was five feet, ten inches
in height and a merchant. He early learned the wool sorter's trade and became
an expert in this line, and worked at this trade in the mills of the town. For
many years he had a general store at Staffordville, being generally successful.
About ten years ago the store and contents were destroyed by fire and Mr. Chaf-
fee retired from commercial life. 'Sir. Chaffee was a republican, and was actively
