Seth CHASE (1722-1811) was a Quaker, a Tavern Keeper and a Loyalist (Tory) who resided variously in Dartmouth, Rhode Island, “The Gore” an area in Dutchess County, New York and lived most of his adult life in Little White Creek, (which was first part of the Old Cambridge District in Albany County, New York Province,) and later became known as White Creek, Washington County, New York State. Seth was arrested by the Patriots and banished to New Hampshire for one year during the revolution. He was allowed to return and he kept his property. His descendants followed a typical westward migration, many of whom settled in Clinton, Onondaga, Madison, Cortland, Oswego counties, and many went further out to the upper mid-western states.
This web page listing corrects a long time error in discovering the name of Seth's second wife. For many years in various published genealogies his second wife's name was reported as "Sarah ELLIS" with no further information. This compiler can show that she was most likely Sarah (TUBBS) (EELS), the widow of Waterman EELS who was killed at the Battle of Bennington, and that it was most likely a very late in life marriage of which there was no issue. Incidentally the Battle of Bennington did not happen in Vermont, it occurred immediately next to, and parts of it directly on Seth CHASE's property in White Creek on the border with the Town of Hoosick, Rensselaer County, NY.
Seth Chase was born in 1722, in Quaker Hill, Dutchess county, New York, a son of Phineas Chase and Desire Wing.
