Death of J.J. Chase, an Engineer in Civil War.

John J. Chase, for many years a resident of this village, died at the home of George Clark on South street Thursday evening. Mr. Chase was born at Burke, N.Y., November 26, 1843. He served in the Civil War two years and ten months, as a member of the 8th Vt. Regiment. He enlisted as teamster and served one and a half years as a locomotive engineer on detached service. Before his enlistment, Mr. Chase was a fireman on the Central Vermont railroad and at one time was employed as engineer at the city water works in Burlington. Three of his brothers have also been railroad engineers. He suffered a shock several years ago, since which he had been in feeble health and had been cared for at the home of his sister, Mrs. Clark, for 16 years. He was a member of R. S. Sherman Post, G.A.R., and had a pension of $72 a month. He is survived by three brothers, George of Burlington, Edward of Ottawa and Herbert of Winooski, and three sisters, Mrs. Timothy Rivers, Mrs. Claude Wallace and Mrs. George Clark of this village. The funeral will be held at his late home Sunday morning at nine o'clock.
