sented to all real daughters of the
Revolution, by the National Society,
D. A. R , of Washington, D. C. Mrs.
O. V. Coffin and Mrs. James H. Bunce
came over from Middleton to make
the presentation on behalf of the so-
ciety. The spoon is of appropi'iate
design with Mrs. Loomis' initials en-
graved on the back of the handle, and
on the bowl " Presented by the Na-
tional Society, D. A. R." It was the
intention to have a little party of
friends and relatives, but this was
finally abandoned. Both Mrs, Loomis
and her daughter, Mrs. Philo Bevin,
with whom the aged lady now makes
her home, have been made members
of the James Woodworth Chapter, D.
A. R., Middleton. Mrs. Loomis is still
hale and hearty, and hopes to reach
the century mark. On Thursdaj^ she

sat down with the family to Thanks-
giving dinner. She was born in West-
chester, her father, Nathaniel Foote,
being a descendant from one of the
settlers of Wethersfield of that name.
Four children are living, Mrs. E. A.
Bliss of Hartford, Mrs. Philo Bevin of
East Hampton, and Israel and Milton
Loomis of Westchester, There are
also twelve grandchildren and nine
great-grandchildren.



The occasion of the presentation of
the charter to the Hannah Woodruff
Chapter, D. A. R., of Southington, was
an event worthy of record.

The chapter was organized June 25,
1897, was admitted to the national or-
ganization October 25th, and the char-
ter was presented to the members
Thursday, December 9th, 1897. The
order of exercises on the latter occa-
sion was as follows :

The historical sketch by Mrs. A. M.
Lewis, containing much interesting
information, Mrs. Kinney's address,
full of patriotic sentiments admirably
expressed, and the shorter addresses
by the regent and others, incident to
the meeting, were of more than ordi-
nary merit.

The chapter has four "real daugh-
ters," one of whom was present at this
meeting.



MAYFLOWER DESCENDANTS.— ANNUAL JIEETING OF THE CONNEC-
TICUT CHAPTER, HELD AT NEW LONDON.



The Connecticut Chapter, Society of
Mayflower Descendants, was very
largely represented at the meeting
held in the west parlor of the Crocker
House, on Monday evening, Dec. 20,
1897. William Waldo Hyde of Hart-
ford, Governor of the chapter, presided
at the business meeting, when reports
of the secretary, treasurer and histor-
ian were read and approved.

The old board of officers was re-
elected as follows ; Governor, William
Waldo Hyde of Hartford ; secretary,
Percy C. Eggleston of New London ;
historian, Edward A. Hill of New



Haven ; treasurer, Laurance W. Miner
of New London.

At the close of the business meeting
George W. Stone of Boston, a member
of the Massachusetts Chapter, read an
original paper on " Pilgrim Days."
Mr. Stone has presented this paper
before the chapters of New York and
Philadelphia, and his reading gave
pleasure to all. It was full of interest
to the chapter members.

An informal banquet followed.
There was a gratifying attendance of
the societv members.



GENEALOGICAL DEPARTMENT.



Of the " Genealogical History of Families " Sir Robert Atkyns writes :
"This has its peculiar use; it stimulates and excites the brave to imitate the
generous actions of their ancestors; and it shames the debauched and repro-
bate, both in the eyes of others and in their own breasts, when they consider
how they have degenerated." Page II, 2nd ed., folio, London 1768, Preface to
the Ancient and Preserved State of Gloucestershire.

Querists should write all names of persons and places in such a way that
they cannot be misunderstood. Always enclose with queries a self-addressed
S/rt/^/t'i/ envelope and at \q.2&X. ten cents for each query. Querists should write
only on one side of the paper. Subscribers sending in queries should state
that they are subscribers, and preference in insertion will always be given them.
Queries are inserted in the order in which they are received. On account of
our limited space, it is impossible that all queries be inserted as soon as
querists desire. Always give full name and post-office address. Queries and
notes viust be sent to Wm. A. Eardeley-Thomas, 50th street and Woodland
avenue, Philadelphia, Penn, The editor earnestly requests our readers to as-
sist him in answering queries. His duties are onerous enough in other direc-
tions, so that only a limited amount of time can be devoted to query researches.

37. Inscriptions from gravestones in
Lieutenant Henry Bennett's Bury-
ing Groimd in Sherman, Ct., copied
and contributed by Wilford C. Piatt,
Esq., New Fairfield, Ct.
[In this burying ground some of the
stones are standing, some pulled up
and set by the wall, and when it was
ploughed a great many years ago it is
thought some of the stones were
broken up and put in the stone wall
and some used for steps to houses, so
that very few are left. One very large
stone was so heavy that it could not



be moved to read the inscription, and
as Samuel Ackley's stone was back of
it the date of his death could not be
obtained. The stones of Nathan Hub-
bell, Mabel Stewart and Alexander
Stewart were probably the foot-stones,
and as the head-stones were not found
it is thought they were destroyed.]

OTHER CHASE ADDITIONS AND

Woodniansee, b. Nov. 15, 1730, m
Jan. 15, 1756, Nicholas Cornell.

24. T. R. Chase of Detroit, Mich., says
he never heard of an Ezekiel in this
family. I am certain I had this on
reliable authority. Mr. Chase also
says that No's 114 and 115 both
married men named Peleg Sher-
man. He says there were 3 cousins
of that name living at this time. It
seems to me that Dartmouth T. R.
would have said Elizabeth Sherman
d. 1747, if she. No. 125 had mar. a
Sherman. I concluded that because
Dartmouth T. R. said Elizabeth
Chase d. 1747, that therefore she
was not married.
