Hi, I am doing family research on the Chatfield family from the Josiah, David, William, John Milton, and Albert Leonard line. I have a lot of info on William and Susannah Coy's family but can always use more if anyone is interested in sharing. Also I have letters from the civil war from Robert Emmett Chatfield (later known as only Emmett or Emmitt) who was from Ohio but served with a New York regiment. Any interest?

There are five Robert Emmet Chatfield's! Married Julia and Hattie or another?

I am always interested in verifiable information.

Check out and see where we go from here.

Yes, our Robert/Emmet was married to Julia and later to Hattie Butler. His children were Lester/Leston, Frank, Ada, Laura, and Billie (William). I can find no death certificate or cemetery info on this person. The letters from the civil war make me want to find his family to share them with. Thank you for any information you can share.

You can check out what I had and have added at;pz=colin+john;nz=chatfield;ocz=0;p=robert+emmett;n=chatfield

He does make life difficult using Emmett more than Robert. Leston is definitely LESTON.

I can't find R E's death but it was after 1899 as he is on the 1900 census as a lodger with his daughter Ada in Red Lodge, Carbon Co., Montana.

I can't find Julia's death date but have found her death at Find A Grave Memorial# 74136325.

Thanks to technology and humans sharing their information I now know that he died and was buried in Michigan near Detroit. Ada was the daughter who became "deaf and dumb and senseless" (using his own words) from Typhoid fever that three of his children got while he was fighting in the Civil War.
