Am trying to trace information about my grandmother Mary Bell Chaffee Ballantine(b.5/19/1869-d.1/15/1918). Far back in her family is a Nathaniel Chaffee(b. between 1638 and 1642-d.1721) who had a son named Jonathan Chaffee(b.4/7/1678-d.12/31/1766) one of eleven children. Does this coincide with your information? Do you know where these people lived? I believe it was somewhere in New England, but am not sure.
