son of Elijah and Lucy Smith (Riley) Beach, b. in Middletown,
Ct., Dec. 18, 1843.

When she was but three years old she gave striking indica-
tions of musical talent, and neighbors and relatives predicted a
remarkable future. She came to Boston with her parents at
the age of three years, and has continued to reside there. She
was placed under good teachers of the piano at an early age,
and developed so rapidly that at the age of sixteen she was able
to play, with full orchestral accompaniment, in Music Hall.
She continued to study with great fidelity, and while still very
young began to compose. A cadenza for Beethoven's C minor
concerto which she wrote was performed by the Boston Sym-
phony Orchestra; a grand mass in E flat was rendered in 1892
by the Handel and Haydn Society. The first composition by
a woman ever performed by the New York Symphony Orches-
tra under the direction of Mr. Walter Damrosch was Mrs.
Beach's " Marj' Stuart." By request of the managers of the
Columbian Exposition, she wrote the " Festival Jubilee," for
the dedication of the Woman's Building. " The King and
Minstrel," a ballad for male chorus and orchestra ; a " Ro-
mance " for violin and piano, and many other works have been
produced by her.

REVOLUTIONARY RECORDS.

Cheneys in the Revolution j from Massachusetts. The State Archives
have been carefully indexed for the period of the War of Independence,
and this index is being published in a series of volumes. The pages con-
taining the names Chaney, Chany, Channy, Cheeny, Cheney, Cheny, &c.
have been kindly shown to the compiler by the Secretary's assistants
having the work in charge ; and have enabled him to verify what he had
previously copied from the MS index. In applying these records to the
various members of the Massachusetts families, however, the writer must
admit that he has not always been completely certain that he was giving
records to the right men ! Especially in the case of the Johns, Daniels,
Thomases and Williams, great caution had to be exercised. Where he
found absolute evidence he has quoted it ; but in all other cases he sub-
mits the case to wiser heads for re-examination.

Richard Cheney., Stockbridge, served in Major's co., Sprout's regt. in
Continental Army, Jan. i, 1777; reported prisoner from July 6, 1777. On
