Found yours and Connie Leaman's notes as I was searching for info on James Cady Chaffee, my GGfather. Do not know who his parents were only that he was born in Callarangus/Callanangus County New York on 2/22/1804 & died 7/27/1882 unknown where. It is my understanding that he had 4 sons from a first marriage, Kingsly(?) Ambrose, Albertus & (unknown who 4th was).I descend from his second marriage, my grandfather being Alvin Louis b 4/20/1869 in Ill. I have other info re your side of family.Relatives living in my area, Napa County, California.
