Betsey Fay, daughter of Thomas and Esther, married Chester Munger. Her sister Olive married Chester's brother Solomon. For the marriage of Olive and Solomon, we have the evidence of Orlin; of The Munger Book; and of the Brimfield Vital Records. The marriage of Chester and Betsey is not mentioned in the Brimfield Vital Records nor in The Munger Book. It is, however, mentioned in Orlin; and the marriage and birth of a son Erastus are confirmed by family materials including the will of Chester Munger.
   
Chester Munger (1781 - 1838) was the son of Solomon Munger and Anna Moulton (see Munger Cousins). Solomon and Anna had seven children; two, Chester and Solomon, married Fay women. Of Chester himself, Jeremiah B. Munger, in The Munger book : something of the Mungers, 1639-1914, including some who mistakenly write the name Monger and Mungor, New Haven: Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor, 1915, knows nothing.
   
   
Erastus D. Munger was born in Middlebury, New York, in 1811. Much is known of his life, including his service in the Civil War. He married Jemima Brotherton about 1830.
