Sherman B. “Peter” Chace, formerly of Quogue, died peacefully on November 2 in Escondido, California. He was 90.

He was born in San Francisco on December 7, 1931, to Henry Underhill Chace and Sally (Joost) Chace VanDeventer. Raised in Plainfield, New Jersey, he attended Newark Academy in Livingston, New Jersey, and after serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, attended University of Virginia. It was there that his college roommate Ted Lyman introduced him to his sister, Susannah (Anne), who he would later marry on May 19, 1956 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Essex Fells, New Jersey. Starting in early childhood, he spent his summers in Quogue at the home of his grandfather and namesake, Sherman Brownell Joost. He later made Quogue his year-round home.

He worked for many years as a real estate appraiser with Snover and Company in Babylon.

He was active in the Lions Club and St. Mark’s Church in Westhampton Beach. After retirement, he lived in Tryon, North Carolina, Tucson, Arizona, Ruidoso, New Mexico, and Escondido, California.

Predeceased by his wife, he is survived by his four children, Sherman B. “Peter” Chace Jr. of Brooklyn, Susannah Chace of Shoreline, Washington, Dana Johnson of Escondido, California, Sarah Chace of Asheville, North Carolina; and four grandchildren.

Nature’s Lessons

We use floating row cover to protect early crops from the elements. We use it for pest control, a physical and very effective barrier means we needn’t use poison — organic or otherwise. Poison is poison. Row cover is one of modern agriculture’s greatest inventions, but float is a euphemism. In order to use it for a long period of time, weeks, maybe months, you need to support the near weightless fabric with a long archway of evenly spaced wire “hoops.” Sprung steel in 6 foot lengths, 3/16 gauge, are straight when you poke one end into the dirt, but ... by Marilee Foster

The fate of an abandoned mansion in Shinnecock Hills is mired in two versions of history — from two different cultures, and conflicting versions of preservation. The home, in the Atterbury Hills section of the hamlet — if one refers to the area by its Colonial moniker — sits on property owned by the Peconic Land Trust and co-managed with the Niamuck Land Trust. The organizations purchased the parcel in 2021 in order to restore it to its natural state and preserve it. It has a rich history to the Shinnecock people and other Indigenous tribes from the Northeast. For ... by Editorial Board
