Nebraska Census, 1865, Cuming County


John1 Haseltine Family, Haverhill, Mass



  1. AQUILA1 CHASE, born about 1618, came to New England about 1639.(a) In June, 1640, he and his brother, Thomas Chase, were granted land at Hampton, New Hampshire. Both are called seamen and it seems likely that they had been sailors on one of the boats, that were bringing settlers to the New England coast. There is no indication that either man had learned a trade or that either was of the Puritan faith. Both brothers signed documents with their marks.

  Aquila Chase married about 1644 Anne, daughter of John and Ann (Yeoman) Wheeler of Hampton, and formerly of Salisbury, county Wilts, England. In 1646 the town of Newbury, Massachusetts, offered him a grant of land on condition that he "do goe to sea and do service in the town with a boat for four years." He removed to Newbury the same year. He was commander of a coasting vessel between Newburyport and Boston. His oldest child was born at Hampton, the others at Newbury. He died at Newbury, December 21, 1670, aged 52, having lived there twenty-four years. His widow Anne married, secondly, Daniel Mussilloway, a young Irishman, 25 years of age. She died April 21, 1687. After her death Daniel Mussilloway married again and raised a family.(b)

  (a) This genealogy of the Chase family was prepared by the editor more than ten years ago. He did not know at the time that a first class history of the family had been published. The manuscript has recently been checked against. Seven Generations of Descendants of Aquila and Thomas Chase , by John Carroll Chase, published in 1928. The editor has made use of the probate records, published in the above work, which were not accessible elsewhere.

  These records were copied from the original manuscript and annotated by the editor. The manuscript was discovered by the editor along with many other census papers in a vault in the library of the


University of Nebraska about ten years ago. It is complete in this issue. The record throws considerable light on one of the early German settlements in the state.
