Notes on Reverend Ariel Ebenezer Parish Perkins, D.D., Emily Pearson Perkins and Susan Osborne Poore Perkins.

CLASS OF 1843.
Ariel Ebenezer Parish Perkins, D.D. (Non-graduate.)

Son of Rev. Ebenezer Perkins (Class of 1817) and Amelia Parish, and grandson of Rev. Ariel Parish, of Manchester, Mass.; born in Royalston, Mass., October 11, 1820; fitted for college at Phillips Academy, Andover; graduated at Amherst College, 1840; studied in this Seminary, 1840-41; continued theological study with his father at Royalston, 1841-42, and with Rev. Zedekiah S. Barstow, at Keene, N. H., 1842-44, being for that time the principal of Keene Academy. He was ordained as pastor of the church at Phillipston, Mass., September 18, 1844, his father preaching the sermon. He remained there until 1855, and was then pastor of the East Church, Ware, Mass., for thirty years, 1855-85. He afterward resided in Worcester, Mass., without charge, but occasionally preaching, until his death.

He received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from Williams College in 1870. He was a member of the Worcester Society of Antiquity, a trustee of Hartford Theological Seminary, 1877-86, and a corporate member of the American Board from 1874. He served for six weeks as delegate of the Christian Commission in the Army of the Potomac in the spring of 1865. He was a member of the National Congregational Council in Boston, 1865, and moderator of the State Association in 1860, and in 1887. He published anniversary sermons preached at Ware in 1875 and 1880, a Semi-centennial Sermon before the Brookfield Associational Conference in 1871, and several Thanksgiving and memorial sermons. He was very much interested in all branches of nature study. He gave lectures on geology in his first pastorate, knew all the rare flowers and rare birds, and made a fine collection of shells, now in the Ware Library.

Rev. Amos H. Coolidge, of Worcester (Class of 1856), for over forty years a ministerial neighbor of Dr. Perkins, sends the following tribute: "Dr. Perkins was one of those robust, sturdy clergymen who have honored the New England ministry. He was solid, portly, symmetrical, and commanding in his physical proportions, and never, till near the end of his long life, knew by experience what sickness was. He was equally large and vigorous in his intellectual and moral quality — well-balanced, sensible, and ruled by fixed principle. He was a theologian of the older school, but kept abreast with the modern movements of scholarship, and while true to the old gospel, and emphatic and open in the expression of his convictions, was broad and tolerant in his judgments and feeling toward those from whom he differed. He was moderator of a larger number of councils, probably, than any other man in Central Massachusetts. He was an author1ty in ecclesiastical usages, and repeatedly rendered valuable service in harmonizing differences in churches. He had a long, efficient, and useful ministry ; and when at length he ceased to be a pastor, became the most judicious, loyal, sympathetic, and helpful of parishioners, and his relations both to his pastor and to the church were intimate and affectionate."

Dr. Perkins was married, September 25, 1850, to Emily Pearson, of Hanover, N. H., daughter of Samuel Atkinson Pearson and Sarah Ann Boardman. She died November 11, 1854. He married, second, February 19, 1856, Susan Osborn Poor, of South Danvers (now Peabody), Mass., daughter of Hon. Henry Poor and Mary Osborn. She survives him, with four sons and one daughter. Two sons are professors, respectively, in Throop Polytechnic Institute, Pasadena, Cal., and the University of Tennessee at Knoxville ; one son is in business in New York City, and one, Rev. Henry P. Perkins, is a missionary of the American Board in North China. The daughter is the wife of Dr. L. M. Nason, of Worcester. Three sons died in childhood. Dr. Perkins died of paralysis, at Worcester, Mass., June 27, 1899, aged seventy-eight years, eight months, and sixteen days.

Notes on George Washington Beebe and Bessie E. Chute Beebe.

"The following is all the data I have on Barbara’s grandmother, Bessie Chute Beebe:

Husband – George Washington Beebe
B – 15 February 1836
M – February 1857 – Eunice J. Browning
M – 5 October 1884 – Elizabeth Powers
M – 24 December 1896 – Bessie Chute
D – 10 September 1914 – New London, CT

Our primary search has been on the Bessie Chute side. She married a Edward Delap in 1887 in Nova Scotia and had a daughter whose name and history have been a well kept secret of the Chute family. Not even Barbara’s mother was told who her mother and father were. We believe the mystery lies in Nova Scotia, rightly or wrongly."

While researching this family, I came across several web sites who suggested than an Ishmael Lobb was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth. He was not. It is more likely that he was the son of George Lobb (1700-) and Katherine Hambley (1700-).

Dear Mr. Chute,

I am so sorry not to have been been here when you came, but my husband being in the hospital, my daughter Nola would not let me stay home alone, so I had to go and stay with her.

I am also sorry that at this moment I cannot give you the middle names of David’s wife or their children, but on account of my husband’s bad heart, we are forced by the Dr. to brake [break?] our home and move with my oldest daughter of a previous marriage, so by the first of the month we will be living in Haverhill, Mass. and when I am there I will see to it that I get those names, and also the names of David’s oldest sons, wife and of their children, as I understand they have two.

Nola Rose (Chute) has one son, name Lemont Edward Magoon, born [Private].

William Lemont has one more daughter, name Florence Rose Chute, born [Private].

The rest on your list is right. First, as soon as I can see David, I will get his family record for you, and see to it that you get it, as fast as I can. I am so glad to be able to help you out, on that book.

Sincerely yours,

Mrs. Rosa A. Chute

Dear Sir,

I hope you will forgive me for being so late in sending you David A. Chute’s records. I have been very busy. Mr. Chute was very sick for over a month, then my daughter from my first husband found a larger apartment, and between packing, painting and papering the six new rooms, two large hall and 6 closets, big enough for bedrooms if you put two of them together you’d have a room 9x12 feet, so you see the work we had to do, just my daughter and 2, but we did it.

You asked in your last letter if I had other children besides the three, William, Jr., John & Nola. Yes, I have two daughters by my first husband, in fact, this house we live in now belongs to one of them. Here are their records, in case you want those:

Pearl Marie (Derosian) Beede, born July 27, 1919 in Fitchburg, Mass.

Ruby May Threza (Derosian) Martin, born September 14, 1920, in Boston, Mass.

Their father Samuel Derosian deceased in 1946.

Well, I believe that is all I can tell you, but please forgive my lacking in sending these records.

Sincerely yours,

Notes on William Burleigh Chute (IV) and Florence Petersen Chute.

Correspondence, Florence Petersen Chute and Jacqueline Chute

I was married to William Burleigh Chute – father Joseph Asa Chute (son of Alick Chute & Laura nee Robinson).

I’ve been doing some research for William’s Uncle Peter (Cuddy) Chute on the first William Burleigh Chute who married Ill Tekea of the Gilbert Islands, and wondered if you have any information on how and when he came to Fiji.

The info I have on William Burleigh Chute is:

William Burleigh Chute’s mother Jane Lucinda Burleigh was of the Burleigh family (gentry) of Carrickfergus.

Reverend John Lindsay Chute – Born 1800, Cork, County Cork, Ireland and Rector of Dingle Co., Kerry (his father’s name was Arthur Chute, mother Frances Lindsay). Married Jane Lucinda Burleigh, born 1776, which means she was 24 years older than him.

Issue
William Burleigh Chute – born 1832, Cork, County Cork, Ireland – married Ill Tekea, Gilbert Islands
Annie Chute – born 1834
Frances Wills Chute – born 1836, married William McLaughlin
Henry George Chute
Arthur Chute – married Helena Ridgeway – daughter Jane Lucinda Burleigh Chute (born January 9, 1866)
Francis John Chute – born 1839
Reverend John Chute
Ruth Chute

On 14 JUN 1873 he was registered as part owner of the schooner Wild Wave in Levuka, Fiji (aged 41)

I would be very grateful for any further information which you might have on his life between Ireland and Fiji.

Regards,

Florence Petersen

"Armstrong. Richard Armstrong, b. 1749, according to tradition a native of Dundee, but who had lived in his boyhood and early youth on the border, came to Halifax in 1770 ; and it is said either the late Joseph Winniett, or the late Thomas Williams induced him to come to Annapolis, and employed him for a few years in farming operations. In 1776 he had removed to Granville for he was on duty in that year as one of the garrison in the old Scotch fort, in anticipation of an expected attack by troops from the revolted colonies. Here he became acquainted with Catherine Schafner, whom he married about 1777. Many descendants are in Digby and Kings counties and the other provinces, and one, a rising barrister, in Yarmouth."

Notes on Newton Earl Chute and Virginia Alma Hall Chute.

Correspondence, Newton Earl Chute to George M. Chute, Jr.

100 Haven Road
Syracuse, New York
January 22, 1951

Dear Mr. Chute,

Your letter came as a pleasant surprise. I am glad to make your acquaintance and to learn that you are revising the old genealogy. My Mother and Father had a copy of the old book, but a few years ago, when they moved, it was lost. I had hoped to keep the book for reference and my Mother was quite upset about its loss.

I am sorry that I did not get to see you when you were here last summer. At that time I was doing geological work for the State Genealogical Survey in the eastern part of New York State.

As you can see in the genealogy, my grandfather Chute (Isaac Newton) had several brothers and sisters. Interestingly enough, one of these was named George. He is now dead but he has two sons, named Roger and Gordon Chute, who live on the West Coast. Another brother Fred never married; he died in California, a number of years ago. A sister Melissa married Josiah Smith. They have both been dead for fifteen or twenty years. As I understand it, my great grandfather Chute came from Nova Scotia.

I was born in Fairmont, Minn. After I finished high school there I went to the University of Montana at Missoula, Montana. After getting a B.A. there in Geology I took a Master of Science degree at the University of Minnesota in Geology. The following school year I taught Geology at Michigan State College at East Lansing. The next year I went to Harvard University and stayed there several years working on my Ph.D. and teaching part time. Before I had finished my thesis I accepted a full time teaching appointment at Princeton Univ. but while I was there, I finished the thesis and got my Ph.D. degree in 1938. In 1939 I went to the University of Missouri as an Assistant Professor of Geology and stayed there for three years until war broke out. After that I worked for four years for the U.S. Geological Survey. After the war I went back to Missouri for a year and a half until I accepted my present appointment at Syracuse in Feb. 1948.

Last year Rosanna Chute was here doing graduate work in Biology. Her father is a physician in Hyannis, Massachusetts. I probably could get her address for you if you have not already obtained record of her family.

My Mother knows more about the family history than I do. If you wish to write to her for additional information she is living in Fairmont, Minnesota. She has the addresses of some other Chutes who are much interested in the family genealogy. She told me that a lady living somewhere in the West wrote to her to borrow our genealogy book. My mother’s address is:

Mrs. Grace E. Chute
202 Woodland Avenue
Fairmont, Minnesota

I am very glad that you wrote to me. If I can help you further, I would be very glad to do so. My family needs a revision of the genealogy and I hope that your work can progress rapidly.

Sincerely yours,

Newton E. Chute

Dear Aunt Jo and Uncle Geo:

I write sad news for you. Maylond died with heart attack while deer hunting Nov. 24. It was such a shock. It's still hard for me to realize he won't be coming home. We were so happy, we put a lifetime of love and happiness into those three short wonderful years. I must believe that "God" knew best for Maylond even if its hard for me to understand.

I will stay here in Thorp, near Maylond, where I spent the happiest years of my life and where he always wanted me to be.

I have many loving friends here. Am sending you the clipping from the paper. (not enclosed).

Maylond's sister Marie and her husband are not well. Frank is in a wheelchair when not in bed. It's sad. I talk to her now and then on the phone.

Have a nice holiday,

11/2/66

Dear Mr. Chute:

Was indeed interested in the information you furnished.

My wife's given name is Helga.

Kenneth Francis Chute has a family and is making a career out of the army. Last time I saw him was at Brooklyn, NY. He's an officer.

Marcia Ann is also married. We all got married (Helga & I, Kenneth & wife and Marcia & husband) around the same time; economies were realized in that all three brides wore the same wedding dress.

I think Kenneth's wife's name is Michel [this may be incorrect]; children's names are Michele, Michael and Denise. Not sure of birth dates.

Have no particulars on Marcia Ann. Have met her husband several years ago but don't recall the name. He is in the service, however, at least at that time, Air Force as I recall.

My family line is apparently rather nebulous at best, in that we are not real sure about Thomas Chute (who would be my Great Grandfather), and was less sure about David Melvin Chute (who would be my Great Great Grandfather).

I never knew there was a place named "Chute's Cove". Do you know if that was named after a "family Chute" or a coincidence? Do you know anything about the place? e.g., population, etc.?

I thank you again for the most interesting letter.

Sincerely yours,

R. A. Chute

Dear Mr. Chute,

I received a letter from Robert, my nephew, a few days ago for a request of some information about my children.

Yes, Kenneth is married to a Jean McQuarrie, they have 3 children: Michele born [Private], Michael, born [Private] and Denese, born [Private]. Kenneth was married [Private], so much for Kenneth, now Marcia married [Private] to Douglas A. Dodge, their 2 children, Tama Dodge born [Private] and Brian Dodge, born [Private].

Also my father George Francis Chute passed away Oct. 24, 1966. My mother Susan E. is still living.

Sorry if I did not answer your letter back in 1961 for some reason. I cannot recall ever receiving it, so I will close for now, hoping you and yours are enjoying the best of joy and health for the holidays.

Notes on Francis Barclay LeCain and Elicia/Alicia Maria LeCain.

Genealogical Notes, Francis Barclay LeCain

"Lecain. The name of this family was formerly spelt LeQuesne, it being a purely French name. 1. Francis Barclay LeQuesne, whose name became Anglicised to its present form, came to Annapolis from the Island of Jersey as "Master Artificer" or "Armourer" in the employ of the Board of Ordnance. The family were of the gentry, and their coat of arms, "ar. a lion pass. gules," motto, "Suis ducibus usque Jidelis." The following obituary notice of him in Minns' Weekly Chronicle, published at Halifax in 1806, is presumably from the pen of Rev. Jacob Bailey: "Died at Annapolis Royal, Francis Barclay Lecain, aged 85 years — the oldest settler in this county, and who lived sixty-four years in this town. He was always an honest and worthy man, and left about 100 descendants. He was fifty-five years a Freemason." He must, if these figures were correct, have arrived here just five years after the arrival of John Easson, who had pre-deceased him by about twenty years. He married (1st), September 1, 1745, Alicia Maria, only daughter of Thomas Hyde, who also had been a "Master" in the Ordnance Department. She died September 23, 1758. He married (2nd) Elizabeth, daughter of Benjamin and Mary (Woodward) Foster. His second daughter married John Ritchie, and thus became the grandmother of the Chief Justice of Canada and his distinguished brothers. In his long residence here he was an eye-witness of all the stirring and fateful events of which this historic town was the centre, and was contemporary of the long series of brilliant men mentioned in these pages, from Mascarene to De Lancey, all of whom were his friends and associates.

* I take the dates of births of Francis B. LeCain's children from an affidavit made by him in claiming for them a legacy left his wife by her aunt, Lady Mary Keate, sister of Thomas Hyde's wife. Many years later a belief became prevalent that a colossal fortune awaited the heirs of some Thomas Hyde, and 1 have found that numerous descendants of Francis B. Le Cain by his second wife, ignorant of the second marriage, spent money and time in trying to investigate and recover this fortune, under the erroneous impression that they were descendants of Alicia Maria Hyde, instead of Elizabeth Foster.—[Ed.]"

ABRAHAM GESNER
MPP, 1824-1827

The subject of this memoir was born in New Jersey, in 1755. He was a twin brother of the late Henry Gesner, of Cornwallis, who was the father of Abraham Gesner, M.D., the well-known geologist and writer. The family are of Swiss origin, and emigrated from the Fatherland early in the eighteenth century to America, where they soon became the owners of valuable real estate in New Jersey, which was afterward confiscated on account of their adhesion to the Royal cause in the revolutionary contest.

In a memorial to Sir James Kempt, in 1828, asking for half-pay, Mr. Gesner informed His Excellency that he had entered the military service of his country at the age of sixteen years, in the King's Orange Rangers, then commanded by Samuel V. Bayard; that he was with Sir Henry Clinton in his northern expedition, and present at the storming and taking of Fort Montgomery, and was in another engagement of "less note; that he had bought his commission from a Captain Bethel; that he had sought refuge with the British army in 1776, and came to this place in 1779; and that he had served in the militia of this colony for the long period of forty years — that is to say, from 1788. Toward the close of the past century, he became the proprietor of the Noble property, in Granville, then known as the Alexander Howe farm, which included lots Nos, 95, 96, and 97, in that township, including an area of 1,500 acres of marsh, pasture and woodland. This estate he took much pride in improving and beautifying. To him the people of the county are greatly indebted for the present flourishing condition of its fruit orchards. So fully was he persuaded of the value of this branch of industry that he imported, from time to time, scions of the most approved varieties of apples from Great Britain and the United States, at his own expense, for gratuitous distribution, with a view to create and encourage a love for pomological pursuits. He paid unusual attention to fruit culture on his own farm, and had the pleasure of possessing as the result of his skill and efforts, the finest and most productive fruit orchard in the county, perhaps in the Province. In 1824, Thomas Ritchie having vacated his seat in the Assembly, by accepting the appointment of a seat on the bench of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas, Mr. Gesner, or as he was more generally called, Major Gesner, was brought out as a candidate to fill the vacancy, and was duly returned. His uprightness of character and sincerity of purpose commanded the respect of parliament and people, though he seldom spoke on any other than questions connected with local affairs.

In the general election of 1827, he declined a nomination, urging the increasing infirmities of age and his desire to finish his few remaining years in the pursuits to which he had devoted so large a part of his life, and in which he had enjoyed so much happiness and success. His descendants are very numerous, and some of them still own and occupy portions of the extensive and valuable homestead.

Notes on Henry Leo Augustus Chute and Georgia Florence Kittle or Kittelle Chute.

A Name Change record suggests that Henry Leo Augustus Chute of North Attleboro, Bristol County, Massachusetts is the same individual as Henry Augustus Chute, of North Attleboro in Bristol County, who was adopted and changed his name to Henry Augustus Taber on May 3, 1889, at the age of 9. However, his records as an adult still reflect his original birth name of "Chute" and not "Taber".
