Thomas Choate was named for his grandfather from whom he inherited some "silver shoe buckles," which were afterward exchanged for a large silver spoon. Mr. Choate was a very earnest Christian. Learning devotional hymns and religious truths from his mother's lips in childhood, and accustomed to walk six miles to Springfield to meeting, he became a follower of Christ so early that he could not remember the time when he did not find enjoyment in prayer. One of the first members of the always small Congregational Church in Enfield, N.H., he gave his earnest support to it. and was ever constant in attendance upon religious ordinances. Upright, consistent, honest, conscientious, and of excellent judgment, he gained the respect of all. He was quiet, sensitive, unobtrusive, and faithful in all the relations to life, but it was in the home where his character shone in all its excellence.

Mrs. Choate was naturally more sunny in temperament, but of a like spirit and Christian character. They were one in their aims and in their efforts: their life was harmonious, and their children honor and revere their memory.
