Thanks for your time and the info. I will add it to my Chase file. Lyman Chase tells the census taker in both 1850 and 1860 that he was born in Vermont. I find him in the Walworth Cemetery:
HOYT, Esther C., wife of Daniel, Dec. 31, 1894, 58y
CHASE, Lyman 1790 - 1864
CHASE, Comfort, wife & dau. Thomas & Alice GREEN, 1800-1829
CHASE, George, son of Lyman & C., 1821 - 1823
CHASE, Augustus, son Lyman & C., 1829 - 1829
CHASE, Lyman Jr., son of Lyman & C., 1842 - 1854
BURK, William C., 1838 - 1890, Civil War
BURK, Mary E. CHASE, wife, 1840 - Oct. 2, 1927
[note: date for either Comfort or Lyman Jr. probably wrong]
Abner Chase was definitely from MA, but I'm not sure abt Lyman. Lyman is about the right age to be a brother to Abner. We'll see. Next time I am in NY I will check the family files at the Historian's Office in Lyons.
Thanks so much.
