      William Cooke, Esq., Catherine Chute, and Ruth Chute.

      Below are two biographical sketches from the same source. However, there is a slight oddity in that William Cooke's sketch indicates that he is living at the time of writing; his son's sketch, refers to him as "the late" William Cooke.
