It's interesting to note that 3 of the Chaffee kids married 3 Whipple's.(Though it's been a while since I was there) there's a web site;http://www.whipple.org. that mentions two of the Chaffee siblings. Lyman Chaffee married Mary Whipple, Betsey Chaffee married Mary's brother, Samuel Whipple.Otis Jr. marr. Grace Whipple, though I didn't find the 3rd couple listed at the Whipple site.
