N.D. bonanza farmer lived interesting life before perishing aboard the Titanic

Published 04/07/2012, Forum Communications

Even as her husband, H.F. Chaffee, helped her slip between the ship railings into a lifeboat below, Titanic passenger Carrie Chaffee believed everything would be fine. It’s going to be alright, her husband assured her. You’ll be rowed back to the ship in just a few minutes. As the 100th anniversary of the epic disaster nears, some may not realize that one of North Dakota’s most prominent men was among the 1,488 passengers who didn’t make it. Chaffee, a successful bonanza farmer and financial wizard, was just 47 at the time of his death.
