Cindonia7 King, (Micah,0 Micah,'1 Benjamin* Benjamin* James,1 William1), born in Longmeadow, Mass., July 2, 1820; died in Buckland, Conn., Jany. 18, 1907; married in Longmeadow, Mass, Aug. 1, 1844, Spencer Chaffee of Somers, Conn., born June 21, 1812. The sweet disposition and unselfish saintly life of Mrs. Cindonia (King) Chaffee deserve a word of eulogy. After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Chaffee made their home in Somers, Conn., where Mr. Chaffee conducted a farm. Later he was engaged with his brother in selling goods through the Southern States. He was a man of more than usual ability, a fine type of the man, who a half century ago gave New England its reputation for ability and integrity in the business world. He was, however, early a victim of consumption and died at 41 years of age, just as the material fruits of his labors seemed about to be realized, leaving the young wife with one little girl to face life's battle alone. Mrs. Chaffee spent a year or two in Springfield, Mass., then returned to Somers and upon the marriage of her daughter, Harriet Eliza Chaffee to Clayton Grant of South Windsor, Conn., went to live with them. She had been, for many years, a member of the Congregational Church at Somers. Her last illness was only a fading away of the physical. The end came in perfect peace. We commonly call it the end. But if we take the larger and happier view of life, believing its vicissitudes merely incidental to the development of the divine in us, then certainly the going of those we call "full of years" is really a springing into new life—a glad valedictory. "Say not good-night, but in some brighter clime, bid me good-morning." Issue:

George Henry7 King, (Micah* Micah? Benjamin,* Benjamin? James,2 William1), born ;died . This name is

often written in the records as Henry G. King of Longmeadow and Enfield. He went to California about 1850 with his brotherin-law, Erasmus D. Chaffee and neither ever returned. It is supposed both died there. It was rumored that George Henry King married in California and had a son but we have been unable thus far to trace him.
