Description: FREER-CHAFFIN/CHAPIN. Seeking the parents or any information concerning Catherine Jane Freer or members of her family. She was born 12 July 1820 and married 20 July 1837 to Alonzo Chamberlin Chaffin or Chapin according to a Chaffin genealogy. She was probably born in Ulster County, possibly in New Paltz or Marbletown. I have found deeds in New Paltz where they bought and sold property. Their first six children: Ann Elizabeth (1838-1914); Elnora (1841-1848); Joel (1844-1846); John (b.1846); Margaret, (b. 1848); and Lucinda (1851-1865), were born in New Paltz and four died there. Rachel, the seventh, was born in Fishkill Landing, Dutchess Co., in 1855, and died 1928, in Schaghticoke, Rensselaer Co. The last, Aaron, was born in North Greenbush, Rensselaer Co., in 1862 and died 1931 in Statesville, Iredell Co., North Carolina. Margot A.
