life in a western city. A desire to put into practice some original ideas concerning
the art of teaching, caused her to take charge- for a year of a country school in
Bonhomme, Mo. Her school consisted of sixty scholars and was ten miles from
the railroad; there being neither church nor Sunday school within miles of her,
she obtained permission to conduct a Sunday school in the schoolhouse. This
service became so i^opular that under the auspices of her successors it has con-
tinued up to the present time and bids fair to shortly develop into a church.

Mr. Chiv^ns was for eighteen years connected with a firm dealing in hardwood
lumber, in the successive capacities of bookkeeper and secretary, and in 1901
established himself in business under the name of W. R. Chi wis Hardwood Lum-
ber Company. Early in life he and Mrs. Chi\nds united with the Hyde Park
Congregational Church, St. Louis, and in 1906 with the First Congregational
Church on Delmar Boulevard, having moved to that section of the city. Mr.
Chiwis is a member of the Congregational Club, composed of professional and
business men of that denomination. At the club meetings addresses are made
on topics of general as well as denominational interest, ladies occasionally being
invited to speak. Mrs. Chivvis has twice been so honored. For seven years she
served as Recording Secretary of the Congregational Foreign Missionary Societies
of Missouri, for four years as Corresponding Secretary of the Missouri Federation
of Women's Clubs and is at present President of the Tuesday Literary Club, one
of the largest of the women's clubs in St. Louis.

Signatures from tlie Bible wliieli belonged to TJioma.s Cliafl'e, the Ancestor.

There is also found written in tiiis Bi])le complete records of births, of the children of
)siah and Sarah Chaffee. (See Xo. 97, Page 80)



Thomas Chaffe mentions in his will under date of July 25, 1680 (which wiU is
recorded at Plymouth, Mass.), the names of two children, Nathaniel and Joseph.
Nathaniel is spoken of as the eldest son. Joseph was made the executor of his
father's wiU, and on the loth day of May, 1683, he settled his estate. In the in-
ventory of the household things, a mention is made of a great Bible, and two
other books, valued at lis. 6d.

On the 22d day of September, 1694, Joseph Chaffe (the younger son of Thomas),
in his will says, " I leave unto my son Joseph the Great Bible that was my father's."

This grandson Joseph married for his first wife, Abigail Hills. His second wife
was Jemima Chadwick. He removed from Barrington, Mass., to Woodstock,
Mass. (now Conn.), where he died in 1759.

Josiah Chaffee, the youngest son of Joseph and Jemima (Chadwick) Chaffe evi-
dently came into possession of the Bible from his father, and from Peter Chaffee
of Woodstock, one of the direct descendants of Josiah, this highly prized heirloom
was received.

Upon one of the blank spaces is found written, "Thommas Chaffy his Booke
1649." Over the Christian name is written, "1664, July." To the writer the
earlier date indicates when the Book was printed, the later date showing time of
purchase or possession. A photograph of the entries in this Bible will be found on
the opposite page.

The other family names with their various data have been found recorded upon
the ancient books in the to^^•n clerk's offices at Swansea, Mass., Woodstock, Conn.,
and elsewhere, pro\'ing the inscriptions written in this Bible to be correct.

It was observed that the title pages of both The Old and Xew Testament were
so badly worn, and in such a dilapidated condition, that it was impossible to de-
cipher the date of publication, which date, however, was correctly proven by the
successful search made at the Library of the American Bible Society in Xew York
City, where a Bible of same edition, and in good state of preservation, was dis-
covered. In March, 1886, there was forwarded as per purchase from a London
book house, a Bible of Uke edition (but red lined). It was shipped on the Oregon,
which steamer accidentally sank in Xew York Bay upon the day of its arrival.

The Book, badly water soaked, was recovered in July following, and the few
loose sheets, including title pages, now fastened in the fore and after part of this
Bible, were taken therefrom.

Rose Clark. He emigrated to Xew England in 1638. He had :

Gershom Hills, born in Charlestown, Mass., July 7, 1639, and married Ehzabeth
Chadwick. He hved in Maiden, I\Iass., and had:

Sarah Hills, married John Chaffe (16).
Abigail Hills, married Joseph Chaffe (18).


Humphrey Atherton, father of Watching Atherton, whose daughter Patience
married Da\'id Chaffe (9) , was one of the earhest and most prominent residents of
Dorchester, Mass., and was an active persecutor of the Quakers. On the 16th of
June, 1661, he attended a mihtary parade on Boston Common. On his way home


in the dusk his horse stumbled and fell, throwing him upon his head with such
force that his brains w^re literally dashed out. The Quakers openly declared it
to be the judgment of God for his persecution of their sect. He was buried in the
old gravej^ard at the corner of Stoughton and Boston streets, Upham's Corner,
Dorchester, Mass., where his gravestone bears the following cjuaint and curious
inscription :

"Here lyes our captaine and major of Suffolk was withall,
A godly magistrate was he, and major generall.

Two troops of hors with him here came, such worth his love did crave,
Ten companyes of foot also mourning marcht to his grave.
Let all that read be sure to keep the faith as he hath done.
With Christ he lives — now crowoi'd, his name was Humphrey Atherton.
He dyed the 16 June, 1661."
His sword is also engraved upon the slab.
