Surnames: Howland, Chase, Wing
I, too, am related to the Howland line - and the Wings and the Chases et al.
Ruth Wing was daughter of Gershom and Rebecca Chase Wing and was born 1768-1769 in Quaker Hill, Dutchess, NY. Married to James Howland 1801. Had a second marriage (when?) to Lemuel Allen. Have much on the Howland, Wing and Chase line but not Israel, Wm, or much more on James.
Gershom and Rebecca Chase Wing had their NY property confiscated in 1782 and were allowed to leave for Canada where they had a crown grant. What little they were allowed to take with them was stolen along the way to Leeds.
Can someone provide more detail about Wm Howland line?

I have some info on William Howland, son of Israel Howland and Drusilla Wood and a brother to James Howland. William was born May 30, 1754 and died 1788. His wife also died about 1788 but I have no name for her. William and his unknown wife had 3 children:
1. Barnabus, b. 1785, Dutchess County, NY.
2. Drusilla (Deborah) Howland, b. Feb 18, 1787, Oblong, Dutchess County, NY, d. Sep 27, 1827, Farmersville (now Athens), Leeds County, Ontario, m. Feb 13 1803, (Capt.) Joseph Wiltse, b. Apr 17 1792, d. May 23, 1874. They had 11 children.
3. William Howland II, b. Jul 15, 1788, d. Sep 11, 1867, m. Oct 23, 1809, Sarah Wiltse, b. Nov 19, 1794, d. Dec 5, 1860, (a sister to the above Capt. Joseph Wiltse). William and Sarah had 17 children but many of them died in infancy. One of their children was Deborah Howland. She married one of my ancestors, William Kelsey. They married in 1842 and William died in 1845. Deborah remarried to Ephraim Hart.
I have some information on the ancestors of Gershom Wing as well if you need it.

I can't help you out with your query but maybe you could help me with mine as I too have a Chase Howland connection. Johanna Chase (widow) married William Brown. Prior to her marriage she was married to -?- Chase and had a daughter Susannah b.8 June 1756 who married John Howland b 30 Oct 1751. They were married 23 Feb 1774.You wouldn't by any chance have them in your data base and know who Susannah's father was?

Thanks so much for the reply. Yes I have checked out that data base with no luck so far. If you have something in your data base that would be great. This has been a brick wall for a year now and is really holding things up. Thanks again!

Chases & Laphams inQuaker MM records in Duttchess Co. NY & Litchfield Co. CT

Classification: Query
Surnames: Chase-Converse, Lapham-Russell, Houland-Sampson, Kelsey-Parmele-Gardner
Joseph Lapham Chase, who was b.1784 CT & d.1852 in Durham, ONTARIO, was a s/o Solomon Chase & Mary Lapham, of Kent CT. He married Mary CONVERSE about 1814, probably in NY, and possibly out of meeting. They may have lived near Amenia NY until Solomon Chase died in 1828.

I'd like to see complete transcriptions of any Quaker marriages they attended, to see who all was in attendance. Did the ceremonies include any members of the Adams, Fish, Erkanbrecht, Lawrence, Page, Puffer, or Randall, families of RI & CT, or any of the families listed below?
