HASCALL.

Although not originally a Durham family yet for many years
the Hascalls have been so largely identified with the best inter-
ests of the town, it seems fitting that a sketch of the family should
be inserted here. Their progenitor, William Hascall, settled in
Gloucester, Mass., about the middle of the 17th century, and from
this place shoots from the family tree were transplanted into
various parts of the country. Rev. Daniel Hascall, the father of
Laurin, William, and Ralph, and their sister Mrs. E. P. Shailer,
formerly of Portland, w^as born in Connecticut, but in early life
went to New York State, w^iere he was pastor of various Baptist
Churches and was also largely instrumental in founding what is
now known as Colgate University at Hamilton. William C. and
Ralph H., his sons, made their home in \>rmont until the year
1862, when they both moved to Durham. William purchased the
old Jonathan C. Merrill place in the village. Ralph purchased the
Secomb Jordan place adjoining William's. Laurin, after a long
experience in New York and the West as an educator, came to
Durham to spend his last days. He died in 1897 (?) Ralph H.
and Celia Hascall had three children. The youngest died in boy-
hood ; Frank resides in Durham, and Mary is the wife of Prof.
E. W. Hall of Colby University. William C. and Finette had
five sons : Of these Charles D. and James A. married in Ver-
mont but settled in Durham. Charles afterward moved to
Oregon, where he now resides. George H. married (i) a daugh-
ter of Richard Dyer, (2) a daughter of James Newell. He pur-
chased the Jordan Dingley place on which he still resides. The
next son, William H. Shailer went as a missionary to Burma in



198 HISTORY OF DURHAM

[872 under the auspices of the A. B. Missionary Union where he
remained for abovit eight years. He there married Miss Emma
A. Chace, who had gone to Burma as a missionary of the Baptist
Woman's Board. After they returned to this country they were
for a time in Farmington, Me., he having the pastoral care of the
Baptist Church in that village. When their health would permit
they returned again to Burma where they remained about five
years. After returning to America the second time they resided
in Fall River, Mass., where he was assistant pastor of the First
Baptist Church for over six years. They are now living in
Dover, N. H., where he is pastor of the Central Ave. Baptist
Church. R. Judson, the youngest of the five sons, married Rose,
the daughter of George Nichols. He resided for a time in Dur-
ham and Auburn but is now engaged in business in Woodstock,
N. B. Both Celia and Finette have entered into rest. The latter
died II May 1886, aged 70 yrs. 3 mos. William C. married (2) .
Emily Knight.

HERRICK.
The Herrick Genealogy has been traced back to the twelfth
century. The family is of Scandinavian origin. Sir Williani
Herrick of Beau Manor, Leicester Co., Eng., was member of
Parliament 1601-1630 and Ambassador from Queen Elizabeth to
the Sublime Porte. Henry, his fifth son, was born in 1604, and
