Chace Family Photos



This gallery contains photos of Chace Family members, either born or by marriage. The first two photographs are of Miller and Mary Chace and Family.  These images are from Stereoscopic photos which were taken in Fall River, Massachusetts, around the
late 1860s or early 1870s by Joseph W. Warren.  Miller Chace died in 1876 and appears to be in his late seventies or early eighties in the photos below.  He is my Great Great Great Great Granduncle in that he was half-brother to Elijah Cornell, my Great Great Great Grandmother Lucretia Cornell's father.  Miller's father was Benjamin Chace who married Sarah Miller (Cornell) in 1777 after her first husband, Elijah Cornell, died.  Miller is also my second cousin six times removed in that his Grandfather George Chace and my GGGGGGGrandfather Moses Chace were brothers.  Obviously, Miller Chace was also Ezra Cornell's Uncle as Ezra and Lucretia were brother and sister.  Miller kept up a very active correspondence and wrote quite a few letters to Ezra.  The maiden name of Miller's wife, Mary, was Chace and she was his second cousin once removed.  Confusing?  Yeah, for me too sometimes.

Notice the person peaking through the window in the first photo?  Spooky.  Who is it?  Why wasn't he/she allowed to be in the photo?  And how about that Chucky-looking person in the back inside the doorway?  I have to assume that the three matronly-looking women are Miller's and Mary's youngest children Mary R. Chace, Phebe Ann Chace, and Lydia Boyce Chace.

In the following photo, Miller Chace is outfitted in his Quaker best.  Most of the Chace Family in Fall River and Valley Falls, Massachusetts, and Providence, Rhode Island during the 1700s and 1800s were Quakers.  Miller and Family were no exception.

These are photos of several generations of Chaces that I have acquired over the last few years.  Thomas Chace, is my Great Great Great Grandfather.  His son Dr. Thomas Chace is my Great Great Grandfather, and Clive Chace is my Grandfather.  I have posted pictures of wives and husbands if available.
