I became interested in Jerome B. Chaffee due to a memorial on his tomb stone relating the marriage of daughter Fannie Josephine to U. S. Grant Jr. Jerome was buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Adrian, MI. on May 13, 1886 in lot 23,block 9. Also buried at this site are his wife,Mariam,children,Horace,Edward and Nellie. Fannie was the only one to reach adulthood and is buried in San Diego. She died Nov. 10, 1909.
