      Thomas Chute, Mary Troop and Jane Shook:

      WEC: "Born in Granville, June 14, 1780, married Mary, daughter of John and Eunice (Fellows) Troop, by Rev. James Manning, October 30, 1804; and lived at Bear River in Clements; a sober, upright Christian: farmer, hunter and fisherman. His wife died November 30, 1817, aged thirty-four. He married second, Jane, daughter of Deacon David Shook of Weymouth, Digby County, Nova Scotia, by Rev. Enoch Towner, December 7, 1818. In the spring of 1837, he sold out his farm to Nathan Tupper, Esq. and moved to the then Upper Canada, called in 1849 Canada West, and in 1867 Ontario; and settled in Malahide, six miles west of Port Burwell, near Lake Erie, and did well there as a farmer. In the spring of 1841, his eldest son being drowned,leaving no heirs, he went back to Nova Scotia to get the property, worth about $6,000; but the widow refused to share with him, so he put it into chancery, and there "lawed" it seven years, returning in the fall of 1848, with $500.00. After building a fine house and helping build a Baptist meeting house, he died August 14, 1850. Aunt Jane, a good, pious lady, died August 28, 1877, aged 65 years, 7 months, after being forty years from her native land."
