Thomas Chamberlain was born on 20 Feb 1659 in Billerica. Parents: William Chamberlain and Rebecca Addington.
William Chamberlain was born about 1621. He died on 31 May 1706. From a Web genealogy: "William arrived with his brother, Thomas in Massachusetts around 1642. He settled in Billerica at that time. He was married to Rebecca Addington, and this may provide some indication as to how he got to Massachusetts. Rebecca's brother, Isaac Addington, was the Captain of a ship which made runs between England, Virginia, and Massachusetts. It is possible that Isaac sailed William, along with his family (and brother's family) from England. It was during the mid 1600's, however, that a large number of Virginia colonists moved from Virginia to Massachusetts; since there were also Chamberlains in the Virginia colony at that same time, and since there is evidence that these two groups are related, it is more likely that William originally arrived in Virginia and then moved north to Massachusetts. If so, he would most likely have done so with the assistance of his brother-in-law."

Grace Cheek Parents: Dr. Marion Alphonso Cheek and Sarah Adorna BRADLEY.
Herbert Cheek Parents: Dr. Marion Alphonso Cheek and Sarah Adorna BRADLEY.
Dr. Marion Alphonso Cheek died in 1895. From the Chiang Mai Newsletter, by Dr. Ted Brown: "McGilvary was followed by other Presbyterian missionaries who were truly doctors, the first three being Dr. Vrooman, Dr. Cheek and Dr. Cary, in that order. Dr. Vrooman and Dr. Cary stayed only a few years. Dr. Cheek, who arrived in 1875, was the most colourful and tragic missionary doctor in Chiang Mai's history. Dr. McGilvary recruited Cheek from his home state of North Carolina and obviously had high hopes for him. The two became brothers-in-law when Dr. Cheek married one of Dr. Bradley's other daughters, Sarah Adorna.
Dr. Cheek raised a pledge of 10,000 dollars from the U.S.A. to build a hospital in Chiang Mai, but the Mission board would not allow it. He was greatly disappointed and embittered. Meanwhile, the Mission was disturbed by his business activities and attempts to have a private clinic. He quit the mission in 1885.
Subsequently, his wife left him and took their children to live in the U.S.A. He became a teak wallah (trader) and acquired several wives. One missionary complained in 1891 that Dr. Cheek had the only sawmill in Chiang Mai and had repeatedly directed his foreman not to saw any lumber for the mission hospital then being built. Cheek ran afoul of some governmental and royal personages and was barred from the logging trade in Siam and Laos. An attempt was made on his life, but he managed to fight off five ruffians with a heavy cane. At the time of his death in 1895, he was the defendant in a lawsuit of such magnitude that it was discussed in the U.S. Senate.
To his credit, he designed a sturdy bridge built at the site of what is today the walking bridge to the Warorot market. The original bridge was removed because it was obstructing the teak logs floating down the Ping River. He helped to build the old church located next to the Ping River, one hundred meters south of the Nawarat bridge. It is now home to the Chiang Mai Christian School. Rev. J.J. Thomas wrote of his death, 'No man has done more in a few years for our mission here, and no man has been so- I was about to say hated- but I will say pitied and discarded by his former friends and loved ones because of what they deemed a misspent and bad life, as Dr. Cheek.' "
Clarence Blachly reported the following: "Dr. Cheek conducted a large teak lumber industry in Northern Siam. Thirty nine elephants were used to handle the timber. It was floated down the river to Bankok. When Dr. Cheek died the Siamese Government confiscated the industry. Damages were sought by the family under international law and eventually $250,000 was awarded Mrs. Cheek. The case was celebrated and established several principles of international law. (National Cyclopedia of American Biography, Vo.. 10, p. 261.) Several letters written by Mrs. Cheek (who was a very poor speller) are preserved by the Library of Congress."

Stella Grace Clapp was born on 31 Jan 1886. Hi,
I stumbled across your tree on Ancestry re: Stella Grace Clapp and that shocked me. Her husband was actually Sumner S. Morley, not Samuel but all your dates check out.
What startled me was your listing of two children born to this couple. I was wondering where you found that information. They were married for less than 5 years before Stella's death and were childless as far as anyone knows.
Stella Grace Clapp died in 1911 in a horrific train wreck in Bridgeport, CT. I believe she was the last to be identified and then only by her watch and ring.
Her husband, Sumner, was remarried in 1914 to Carrie Bishop. Then in 1920 Sumner died suddenly. Again, no children.
In the early 1930s Carrie remarried and I am the offspring of that marriage.
My mother remained very close with the Morleys and I am still in touch with one couple in CA. We are not aware of any children born to Sumner and Stella. In fact the year the William Joseph was supposedly born to them they were in England arriving in Boston from Liverpool on July 7th.
Anyway, knowing that strange things turn up in the pursuit of genealogy I wonder if you can shed any light on that information and those children.

Thanks so much for your quick response. I think I have figured it out! Stella's sister was Elsa whose married name was Duncan. Her husband was Joseph Duncan from VA. He was born in 1869 and Elsa in 1884. They had several children, the first two children being Joseph William Duncan and Pauline Hollister Duncan. These two were just attached to the wrong sister!
It just didn't make sense particularly because Stella stepped off the boat in Boston after a trip to England just 11 days after the birth of Pauline. That didn't seem credible.
Further, in four and a half years of marriage Stella had not children. After his marriage to my mother still not children. At the time of Sumner's death after another 4.5 hears of marriage there were still no children. They had taken in a foster child and were thinking about adoption which made it all look very unlikely that there were two children out there somewhere.
I also found a Joseph William Morley in England and knew that Sumner and Stella were over there so I began thinking may a child was born to them in England but they didn't go there until 1910 so that was eliminated.
Elsa named another daughter Stella in 1915.
So that mystery is resolved.
What got me started on this train was because I was going to an auction last evening. There was a 1823 sampler listed, made in Boston by a Sylvia Ann Clapp. It was quite fabulous and I was trying to figure out if there was a connection to the Vermont Clapps. I didn't find one. I did bid a couple of time on the sampler which ultimately sold for $450...out of my price range. But people I knew said it was particularly fine and worth in the thousands.
Thanks again for you response and information.
