      "Born in Granville, N. S., Sept. 15, 1789; taken 1801, to Bear River by his parents; and lived in Clements, a mile and a half from Bear River bridge; one of the most pious, honest, industrious and generous men of the century. His school teacher in youth was William Carr; his singing teacher was Captain Dean, a pupil of William Billings of Boston, studying the books, Worcester Collection, Village Harmony, Northern Harmony and Stephen Humbert's Union Harmony. Thus by persistent effort he became a good singer, leader and teacher, and also composed about forty church tunes. He claimed to "experience religion " under the preaching of Rev. John Saxton, and was baptized by Rev. Enoch Townes in 1810, joining the Baptist church in Clements. He was appointed deacon about 1821, and soon after licensed to preach, which he continued to do off and on 'till he was seventy years of age . He often preached the gospel to the poor and needy in back settlenients, and taught singing during winter evenings . He maintained a constant correspondence with friends and wrote (f)or the religious papers. For several years, between 1850 and 1860, he was involved in controversy with Rev . Israel Rise, on the Millerite doctrine. His wife, too, wa s a great worker, a weaver and a good Christian woman. He sold his farm in Clements in the spring of 1841, to George T roop, and September 13, left Bear River for Boston on the schooner Wave, Captain Joel McDormand, thence by rail to Providence, R. L, and Stollington, Ct., thence to New York and Albany by steamboat, and through the Erie Canal to Buffalo, thence to Port Rowan, Upper Canada, on a schooner commanded by Captain John Redding. From there they moved twenty-f ive miles in wagons, northwest of Port Burwell into Malahide, and in January, 1842, bought one hundred acres of Captain John McIntyre in the township of Bayham, where he became a prosperous farmer, charitable to the poor. His house was the resort of Christian ministers and pilgrims of all denominations. In the summer of 1851, he went back to Nova Sco tia and in the fall brought back with them Mrs. Chute's aged mother and youngest sister. Deacon Chute died at home, happy in the Lord Jesus, Feb. 17, 1862; his wife followed Jan . 18, 1864, in her sixty-eighth year."
