Includes Notes for Daniel Chase:

History of the Chases; copied by Earl Pine Osborn, source unknown:

Daniel married Hannah Cook in Tiverton, RI. They must soon have come to Quaker Hill, NY for the births of their 10 children are recorded there. In the Revolutionary war he is mentioned as having given aid, although too old to fight.He saw his family split as some married Tories and some fought in the Revolution. Is this the same Daniel Chase who married Hannah Tallman in 1740?]

The Owl, March 1931, p. 2879; copied by Earl Pine Osborn:

Gershon Wing was a Loyalist; Rebecca's father, Daniel Chase was reported by Gov. Clinton as one of the few Quakers favorable to the Revolution. In this connection I was very agreeably surprised, a year or two ago, to receive from Mr. A. H. Chase, a prominent civil engineer, Battle Creek, Mich., a very interesting letter.He had read the story of the Wing family, written by your humble servant and published in "The Owl.Among other things he said:

I just happen to be one of the many living descendants of the Daniel Chase of Quaker Hill and wonder if you were aware of the ancestry of Rebecca Chase, born Nov. 5, 1745, who married your Gershon Wing and skipped to Canada Well, she was my great grandfather's Aunt and we hadn't heard anything from her since she skipped to Canada. I certainly am glad to learn that they did well on the other side of the border. Now if you have any guide in the Wing line, I will give you another Wing Line. John Wing and Deborah Bachiler Daniel Wing and Hannah Swift John Wing and Martha Spooner Desire Wing and Phineas Chase Daniel Chase and Hannah Cook Rebecca Chase married Gershon Wing.

Mr. Chase further stated that, of the nine children of Daniel Chase and his wife Hannah Cook, three married members of the Wing family. John Chase, born Oct. 3, 1743, married Deborah Wing;Rebecca Chase, born Nov. 5, 1745, married Gershon Wing; and Deborah Chase, born Apr. 3, 1754 married in 1774 Prince Wing. I had a long and very interesting correspondence with Mr. Chase, who supplied me with much very valuable genealogical information.At the same time, through introduction from her cousin, Mr. Chase, I had a very cordial interchange of letters with Mrs. Stanley A. Wallace, of Newport, N. the course of which she said:

This, in brief, is the Chase line (1) William (2) William (3) Abraham, (4) Phineas (5) Daniel. William Chase (1) came in 1630 with Governor Winthrop's fleet, bringing his wife and son William.The family were close friends of Oliver Wendell Holmes. William when young was a drummer for the standing army.The family lived first in Roxbury, Mass., and later in Yarmouth Abraham moved to Tiverton, R.I., where there was a large Quaker Meeting, he being a member. Here his third son Phineas married Desire Wing, Jan. 1, 1719

In 1761 Desire Wing Chase is spoken of as the head of a family in Quaker Hill Meeting, at Quaker Hill in the Oblong, N.Y. state. Prince Wing was a brother of Gershom It strikes me that both the Wings and the Bachiler were considerably independent, for they were always getting into trouble and getting fired, miserably for sticking to their principles, excepting in one instance where one picked peas on Sunday. Even Rebecca's ancestor, William Chase, dared to tell the preacher what he thought of him. William Gifford died Apr. 9, 1687; his son William died 1738.His thirteen children were born in Falmouth, Mass.His second son Gershom (3) (do you see where the name Gershom originated?), was born June 1679.He married Deborah _____; their daughter Elizabeth (4) married Jedediah Wing Jan. 18, 1735; all their children were born in Rochester, Mass. Yours Faithfully, Harry D. Blanchard.
