CHAFIN
(Chaffin/Chaffins/Chafins/Chaphen, etc….)
Some Family Files
Please let us know of any needed corrections. I do not pretend to be thorough or accurate, just eager to get to that point!  Write to:  davidandjaynechafin@verizon.net

Note that (for sanity's sake) I have "universalized" the spellings of family names.  I realize that much of my source material--right down to my own father's generation--uses a variety of spellings.  Please do not be offended by the convenience I have employed here.
