CHASE, Squire, missionary, born in Scipio, Cayuga County, New York, 15 February, 1802 ; died in Syracuse, New York, 26 July, 1843. He was licensed as a local preacher in the Methodist church in June, 1822, and in July was received as a probationer into the Genesee conference. He labored in various circuits till 1836, but was twice compelled to discontinue work on account of his health. In 1831 he was presiding elder of the St. Lawrence district. On 15 October, 1836, he sailed as a missionary to Liberia; but the climate impaired his health, and he was obliged to return in 1837. He was a delegate to the general conference of 1840, and then appointed pastor at Watertown, New York, where he had been stationed for a few months in 1834. But his inclination and desire were for missionary work, and in January, 1842, his health having been partially restored, he sailed again to Liberia. He was superintendent of the mission there, and edited "Africa's Luminary," a semi-monthly Methodist paper published at Monrovia. He also made extensive journeys into the interior of the country, acquiring much knowledge about the condition of the native tribes. The state of his health compelled him to return the second time to the United States in May, 1843. He published "Doctrine, History, and Moral Tendency of Roman Catholic Indulgences" (1840). See Rev. P. died Gorrie's "Black River Conference Memorial."
