(w) Abraham N. Kagi was living at Bristolville, 0., in
1835, when his son John was born. His wife died three years later.
He came to Nebraska in the 1850's. His son, John H. Kagi, who
lived at Nebraska city for a short time in 1856, became one of
John Brown's trusted men and was killed at Harper's Ferry. - See
biographies of John Brown.
At that time (July 1865) the population of
Nebraska City was largely made up of refugees from war-cursed
Missouri, and many had left their religion, with their household
goods and gods, behind them in their hurried flight from danger."

CATE OF PORTSMOUTH, NEW HAMPSHIRE,
AND SOME OF HIS
CATE, the immigrant ancestor of this Cate
family, was living at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, as early as 1657.
He was about 23 years of age at that time(a). However
he must have been at Portsmouth as early as 1654 or
1655(b). His wife's name was Alice, whom he married
about 1654, possibly at Portsmouth. James Cate was a carpenter and
had a bill against the town, February 4, 1651.(c). He
died May 15, 1677, aged about 43 years, and by 1679 his widow
Alice had married secondly, John Westbrook(c). His
estate, amounting to £62, was settled in 1702, at which time
Alice was again a widow(d). When the sons, Edward,
William and John, put their names to the "Address of the

CHAMBERLAIN, CHELSEA, MASSACHUSETTS;
CHAMBERLAIN was born about 1691, but where
he was born or who his parents were has never been discovered.
Some genealogists believe he was an immigrant, others that he was
a grandson of Edmund1 Chamberlain of Roxbury,
Massachusetts. He was living at Roxbury, when he married, January
12, 1713/14, Abigail, daughter of William and Judith (Jacobs)
Hasey of Rumney Marsh, now Chelsea, Massachusetts. He moved to
Rumney Marsh, some time after January, 1717/18. Jacob Chamberlain
was a cordwainer, or worker in leather goods. In 1730 he bought a
small farm. He died at Rumney Marsh, September, 15, 1734, aged
forty-three years. As administratrix of his estate, his widow sold
the farm and moved to Hopkinton with her family of ten children,
the youngest born three weeks after her husband's death. She did
not remarry as was customary at that time. She is doubtless the
Mrs. Chamberlain who died at Hopkinton, April 1793, "the oldest
person in the town above 95." If so, she had passed here (sic)
ninety-seventh birthday, for she was baptised, October 20,

died. He married, March 2, 1748/49, at Hopkinton, Martha Mellen,
one of the twin daughters of Deacon Henry and Abigail (Pratt)
Mellen. In 1772 Samuel Chamber lain and his brother John acquired
a tract of six hundred acres a few miles east of Concord, New
Hampshire, and in 1774 he removed thither with his family settling
in the newly organized town of Loudon. In 1776 he was one of the
selectmen of the town. In this position he was one of the men
called upon to obtain signatures to the Association Test ordered
by the Continental Congress in 1776. He was elect ed to the first
state legislature to represent Loudon and Canterbury. In 1791 the
boundaries between Loudon and Concord were changed so that Samuel
Chamberlain, his son Samuel and his brother Abiel were set off
into the town of Concord. In 1797 he removed to Peacham, Vermont,
where he died in 1802. His widow Martha died November 14, 1820,
aged 90 years.(b)

mill, an oil mill, and a carding, fulling and dressing mill. In

History of Michael Reasor and Allied
Families. By F. Hiner Dale, Guymon, Okla., 1941. $2.00. 229
The greater part of this book is devoted to the
descendants of Michael Reasor (1760-1843) of Winchester, Virginia,
and Spencer County, Kentucky. A few of his descendants were early
adherents of the Church of Latter Day Saints and their lines are
carried out with a great deal of detail. Descendants of other
branches of the family are especially numerous in Kentucky,
Indiana and Missouri. Other families concerning which this volume
gives consideration data are Brown, Carrithers, Dale, Gilkeson,
Hutchings, Lowry, McCutcheon, Neet, Pectol and Scott. There are
many quotations from original documents and several incidents of
pioneer life are related. Unfortunately there is no index.
