Oren G. Chase, for may years a prominent resident of this village, died last week, after a brief illness with acute Bright's disease. Funeral services were held Monday, Feb. 2, conducted by the Masonic Order, with interment in Lyndon Center. Mr. Chase was the son of Rev. Daniel P. and Dolly Randlett Chase, bon in Plymouth, N.H., Dec. 10, 1842.
When 20 years of age he enlisted in the 11th Vermont Regiment, Co. A., and saw considerable active service in the war, In 1864 he was taken prisoner and saw the horrors of Libby and Andersonville prisons. He was promoted through the various grades, and when mustered out in 1865 was 1st Lieutenant.
Soon after the war he married Mrs. Sarah Hutchinson of Concord, and in 1872 came to Lyndon. After working on the railroad a few years he bought the Union House, which he and Mrs. Chase conducted many years, to the satisfaction and comfort of the traveling public. A few years ago, compelled by failing health, sold out the hotel to Mr. Neagle, since which time he and Mrs Chase have spent their time with their son, Ernest, in Manchester, N. H., and with Mr. and Mrs. B. G. Morrison in this place, where Mr. Chase died. His widow and son, Ernest survive him, together with two stepchildren, Mrs. B. G. Morrison and Irving B. Hutchinson.
Mr. Chase was always a public spirited and valuable citizen, interested in all good causes. He was an active member of the Masonic Order, and held many public offices in both town and village, always performing his work with credit and efficiency, as a citizen, and as a man.
