Death of James H. CHASE.

James H. CHASE died at his home in this city Sunday morning about 3 o'clock, after two years of ill health and six weeks' confinement to the house. He was a sufferer from bright's disease. Mr. CHASE was born in Rome, New York, January 25th, 1832, where he grew to manhood. While a young man he removed to Warren county, Illinois, where he was married in 1855 to Mrs. Elizabeth ALLEN, who survives him. Two children now living were born to them, Mrs. J. C. HUSTON of What Cheer and C. C. CHASE. The family removed to this city in 1880, and Mr. CHASE was in business here as a liveryman and trainer of horses until his health failed. He was a man of modest demeanor, quite and unobtrusive in his habits and of the strictest integrity. He won many friends during his residence here, and he was deserving of them. The funeral occurred yesterday morning, Rev. A. F. Marsh of the Congregational church, with which denomination Mr. CHASE connected himself several years ago, conducting the services.

Note: Buried in Lot 1st.036. Wife Elizabeth died in 1908 and is buried with him. The date of death on his gravestone is mistakenly noted as 1894, likely confusion due to the change of year soon after his death and the possibility that the gravestone was not arranged for until Elizabeth's passing. Her maiden name was OSBORN, and she was first married to Frederick ALLEN who died a short time after their marriage.
