Sally Messenger is the daughter of Ashbel Messenger and Lucy Ferry Chaffee. My ggg grandfather, Reuben Chaffee(Sally's half-brother)was born in Pompey NY in 1797. He went to Ohio with Ashbel, his stepfather, and lived in various NW Ohio towns, finally settling in Thompson, Geauga Co.
I don't have Sally's birth record and I would love to see anything regarding Lucy Ferry Chaffee Messenger.
There is a good obituary online for Reuben Chaffee that gives some info on his life which might answer some other questions.
