Note    N17-277         Back to Index        Back to Daniel Dimock Chute, Elizabeth Rebecca Rand Chute and Mary Alice Eliza Randall Chute.

Notes on Daniel Dimock Chute, Elizabeth Rebecca Rand Chute and Mary Alice Eliza Randall Chute:

"Born at Digby Joggins, Digby Co., Feb. 7, 1807; taken to Cornwallis by his parents in infancy, married Elizabeth Rebecca Rand8 (Abishai7, John6, Thomas5, Caleb4, John3, Thomas2, Robert1, over to Charlestown, 1635; died 1689) by Rev John Prior, Sept. 29, 1831, New Canaan, Cornwallis and stayed there till March 1840, during which time three daughters and a son were born and died in infancy and childhood, when they moved to Frederickton, New Brunswick and attended the great celebration of the Queen's marriage the first of May, when a whole ox was roasted*. He followed shoemaking. To look for more or better work, he left New Brunswick in March 1849, and lived in Albany and Greenbush, New York, and (hearing that his wife was dead or deserted him), married Mary Alice Eliza, daughter of Paoli and Rebecca Randall, and widow of Captain James W. Taylor (lost off the ship Alamance, 1848, aged 33, leaving two sons, James Henry born 1846 and William George born 1848), by Rev George Hall, Apr. 17, 1849, in New York City, and then moved to Mt. Clements, Mich., and drove stage and carried mail until 1852; then he moved to Swan Creek, St. Clair County and was a storekeeper and stave merchant through the summer of 1853; then went to California; came back in the fall of 1855, and moved to Eyota, Olmstead County, Minnesota and there "farmed it" on a good quarter section of prairie land until 1863, when he sold out and moved to near Albert Lea, Freeborn County; where he again farmed. In the spring of 1866, he went to California again; came back in the fall, and afterwards wandered into Western Dakota and settled in the Black Hills, where he died March 26, 1889. As D. D. Chute was reported dead in New Brunswick, his "widow" married Dea. Eli, son of Hosea Taylor of Orient, Me., 1853, and lived in Lower Woodstock and Eel River; had three sons and a daughter, two were twin boys that died in infancy. She died Feb. 28, 1891, about eighty.

*Note: Queen Victoria's marriage to Prince Albert took place on 11 FEB 1840, in the Royal Chapel of St. James, in London.

"My own ancestor, Laughlin Isadore Chute, was Emily Rebecca Chute's brother, and I have been trying to uncover the mystery surrounding their mother, Elizabeth Rebecca Rand (who also, by the way, must have been a colorful character and who re-married while her husband Daniel Dimock Chute was married to his second wife). The mystery to me is trying to identify Elizabeth Rebecca Rand's parents. I am certain that her father was Abishai (or Abisha) Rand, who has his own extensive family tree going back several generations. There are sources available on the internet listing Abishai's children, but Elizabeth Rebecca Rand is not one of the listed children. There is another daughter Elizabeth in Abishai's family, but it is not her. Both of these daughters were mentioned in Abishai's will -- ours was referred to as his "requital daughter" "Elizie" Chute. I do not know what "requital" means, but that is how the word is spelled in a transcribed copy of the will that one of the Rand descendents sent to me. I think it is probable that Elizabeth's mother is not the same woman who was the mother of Abishai's other children, but I was unable to find a record of an earlier marriage for him in the records I have researched. No one with whom I have corresponded knows who Elizabeth Rebecca's mother is. Interestingly, Abishai has a listed sister named Elizabeth whose birth date is approximately the same (if not identical) to the date listed for our Elizabeth in the William E. Chute book.

Our Elizabeth Rebecca Rand apparently did not get along well with her father. In his will, he left his other daughters each a cow, a feather bed, and twenty-five pounds. He left our Elizabeth five shillings! He was living in Ontario at the time, where he apparently raised his family, except our Elizabeth. She was still in New Brunswick (I believe) with her second husband.

Anyway, I was wondering whether you have any information that would solve this mystery."
